Rigging and Assembly in New Storage and Maintenance Facility

Rigging and Assembly in New Storage and Maintenance Facility

A longtime customer referred R. Baker & Son to a company in need of immediate assistance at their company’s new storage facility. Truckloads of various materials and equipment were arriving daily, and the industrial racking systems needed to accommodate them had been delayed by months and only just arrived. Perimeter walls and most of the floors of the 20,000-square-foot area were stacked with pumps, hoses, IBC bins, portable equipment, valves, and various other materials, severely hampering day-to-day operations. The Baker team was tasked with installing the racking as soon as possible. 

R. Baker & Son worked with the client to lay out the racking on shop drawings, followed by a 3D model, before we got to work assembling and installing over 1,000 linear feet of racking. Individual racks sections measuring 10 ft. high, 4 ft. deep, and 20 ft. in length would be stacked two high for a total height of 20 feet. The racking system was rated to support up to 4,000 lbs., a necessity for storing large pumps and motors weighing as much as 1,500 lbs. A site-specific safety plan was developed and daily toolbox talks were conducted in coordination with the client’s safety manager. 

We had four teams working on the project, two assembling the racking systems and two installing and anchoring them. Upper racking levels were placed using two forklifts, assisted by an articulating boom and scissor lift, and tied into the building’s steel beams to prevent any movement. Bottom racks were securely anchored to the floors. Ten bollards were installed in specific areas to prevent forklifts from damaging the new racking systems.

Before we finished the installation project, the client asked for our assistance loading the miscellaneous equipment and materials on the new racks and we were happy to oblige. We also assisted with the installation of new lighting in all of the aisleways, brought in a large new shop air compressor, and installed new prefabricated maintenance tables. 

Working hand-in-hand with the client, the entire project took just over two weeks to complete. They were relieved to have finally solved a problem they’d had for nearly a year and have a functioning warehouse and maintenance area with manageable inventory control.
