A warehouse is much more than a building, it's probably the most important link in the supply chain.
At Big Box Intralogistics our experience means we can offer advice on a wide range of facility and warehouse matters. And we can also supply simulations to show how our ideas will work in practice.
Typically our customers contact us because they realise they have warehouse issues and want to improve efficiency.
These are just some of the problems they face:
And these are the sort of solutions we provide:
If you are looking at a brand new building or adapting or redesigning an existing facility we can help.
Companies rarely have in-house expertise in warehouse facility layout and design. Big Box Intralogistics have extensive experience in assisting customers in the identification of issues which can improve existing facilities or help with the design of a new warehouse. We achieve this using a well tested design process:
Ensuring the most suitable and relevant warehouse design at the start of a project is paramount. It maximises the useful life of the warehouse, its capacity and productivity and the financial benefits it will bring.
We use a well-established project process to build a picture of what to expect from a warehouse during periods of normal and peak-activity. This process takes into account the following:
Once the specification and the layout is approved we produce final CAD drawings that we, yourselves and any sub – contractors can work from. Changes to these can be easily incorporated throughout the installation process to overcome any issues that may arise.
Whilst traditional two dimensional drawing is still perfectly effective when completing our design work (e.g. the layout plan view with elevations and side views), modern software allows us to create 3D simulations of your warehouse design.
Complex warehouse systems can be modelled in 3D and in virtual worlds. One of the biggest selling points for the use of virtual reality is that it helps to avoid costly design mistakes, meaning at the conceptual stage it’s a very useful design tool. The 3D model is even more powerful when it’s used to:
We can provide our customers with on screen simulations and are even using virtual reality headsets so that clients can fully immerse themselves into their new warehouse design.
