Weight, load, size and the type of material to be stored are just the initial considerations when choosing a storage solution which meets your clients needs.

An Interactive Insight into Storage Design Considerations
This CPD comprises a short introductory presentation, an interactive workshop with three tasks and a closing presentation. The material is designed to provide the participant with a wider knowledge of how storage solutions can impact a building’s design and functionality.

The workshop element of the CPD is designed to:

- To replicate a specific design for a static shelving system providing a given volume of storage.
- An unguided task with the objective of significantly increasing the storage capacity available using a range of storage components provided.
- To further increase the storage capacity available within the same footprint using advanced storage concepts.

The overall aim is to encourage questioning of the storage applications and the various considerations of space planning and storage to further the participants understanding and knowledge.

Personal Storage What comes first - the room or the user?
So often the choice of locker is the last thing on a designers mind when specifying the building but why so?

This CPD seminar highlights some of the considerations to take into account when preparing scheme layouts and designs for new and refurbishment projects.

There is much more to a locker than meets the eye. Find out how specification and early involvement with a manufacturer can improve traffic flows, security, health and safety and reduce fire hazards and project costs. You can even use locker schemes as a revenue stream.

Maintaining your design aesthetic is also important so how can correct specification enhance your lighting and heating layout whilst complementing your theme with colour palette, material finish and locking options.

This CPD seminar is designed to provide you with practical information to identify the common pitfalls in locker specification and enables you to use locker design to improve your design aesthetic and the end user experience. What come’s first – the room or the user?
