Elm Workspace continues to expand its warehouse capacity with the addition of a new mezzanine floor. As Elm Workspace has developed, the need for space and importantly storage of our stock and that which Elm holds on behalf of its client’s has become a key focus for the business. At the beginning of this year Elm acquired the 12500 sq. foot warehouse known as “Unit 2″.
This addition to the business provided the extra area needed to hold more stock for a quicker turnaround to work contracts. Along with the 12500 sq foot floor space, came 24ft of height, which was wasted space until it was decided to use it by adding the mezzanine floor over a section 7,000 sq feet. This area will now be utilized to rent out space to clients, as well as accommodating the “Green Space” stock.
The Green Space Stock is an element that many companies are now more conscious of with regard to what will happen to their furniture when they have finished with it. Office furniture may often still have many years of life in it, rather than throw it into landfill, clients want it to be re-used or recycled, hence the addition to the Elm Workspace brand of “Elm Green Space”.
Elm’s Operations Director Ian Powell, ‘This new addition to our existing space will be a vehicle for clients to dispose of their old furniture with peace of mind that it will be, where possible, re-used. Where it can’t be re-used – where the product is deemed unsafe – then that product will be broken down and the components recycled. Part of the mezzanine will be used to display the used collection of furniture Elm has for sale. ‘We are delighted with the new mezzanine, it provides us with a long-term storage space that meets many requirements of the business as we move forwards.’
