Warehouse1’s Past Performance – Government Projects
Warehouse1 has the experience and expertise to handle a wide variety of government contracts and projects. We have completed many jobs that helped increase the efficiency of government operations, some of which are highlighted below. To get help with your project, contact our Government Projects Team today.
George W. Bush Presidential Library
City: Lewisville, Texas
Project: Supplied and Installed Record Storage Shelving
Details: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) retrofitted a library facility in Lewisville, Texas, to house millions of pages of official records and artifacts documenting the two-term administration of President George W. Bush. Due to the irreplaceable nature of the documents and artifacts, NARA required that the storage shelving be free of dust and able to withstand a seismic event. Warehouse1 provided and installed 1850 sections of steel document storage shelving with an electrostatic powdercoat finish. Warehouse1 also cleaned all shelves and components with electrostatic cloth and installed additional custom bracing for seismic stabilization. The shelving units exceeded the “near perfect condition” requirements.
Hawaii Air National Guard Base
City: Hilo, Hawaii
Project: Supplied and Installed Mezzanine System, 463L Conveyor, Pallet Racking, Security Cage, Mobile Aisle Shelving
Details: The Hawaii Air National Guard Base was continually getting written up for noncompliance with organizational storage standards. Warehouse1 provided the materials and installed a mezzanine system designed by Wright-Patterson AFB engineers. The system stores 463L pallets on conveyors above and below the mezzanine. Warehouse1 also provided and installed a security cage area including a mobile aisle shelving system and pallet rack. The base is in compliance now that its warehouse utilizes storage space effectively and efficiently.
Minot Air Force Base
City: Minot, North Dakota
Project: Supplied and Installed Vertical Lift Modules, Mobile Aisle System, Pallet Rack
Details: This project included two VLM’s (Vertical Lift Modules) manufactured by Diamond Phoenix Co. These are the first ever purchased and installed through the Wright-Patterson contracting office. These units are amazing storage systems similar to a vertical carousel. The footprint of the units are 9’ x 15’ and are 16’ tall. The tray capacity is 550 lbs. with 32 per unit, bringing the total capacity to 17,600 lbs. The trays are 32” x 78” and, once loaded, there are light beams that measure the cube of the loaded tray and tell the computer where to store the load in the most effective position. Warehouse1 also installed a mobile aisle system with pallet rack for storage of tools and supplies.
Department of Homeland Security
City: Lee’s Summit, Missouri
Project: Supplied and Installed Two-Level Shelving System, Mezzanine System with Shelving, Vertical Lifts
Details: The challenge was to design a fully integrated system with enough shelving space while overcoming columns, ceiling and floor heights, HVAC, lighting and fire suppression. To create the multi-level shelving system, the steel bar grating was used as a catwalk between shelves, with custom-designed support clips and beams. After designing the intricate storage system, we had the design approved for engineering and seismic standards. Permits were pulled with local authorities. Warehouse1 installed two-level shelving in an estimated 81,800 square feet of cave space, with an integrated mezzanine for an additional 24,000 feet shelving.
National Archives and Records Administration
Cities: Lee’s Summit, Missouri & Lenexa, Kansas
Project: Supplied and Installed Record Storage Shelving
Details: The National Archives and Records Administration’s Federal Records Centers in Lee’s Summit and Lenexa are 60 feet below the surface in excavated limestone caves. The caves provide a stable environment to store materials due to a constant temperature range in the low 60’s. The Lee’s Summit Center had filled its original 800,000 cubic feet of shelving and needed to expand. NARA had also closed its Bannister Road Records Center and was transferring its records to the Lenexa Center. Warehouse1 designed, provided and installed compression shelving systems for both facilities, 4,000 sections in the Lee’s Summit Center and 4,700 sections in the Lenexa Center.
Ramstein Air Force Base
City: Ramstein, Germany
Project: Supplied and Installed Pallet Rack, Narrow Aisle Pallet Rack System, Reach Trucks, Order Pickers, Portable Office, Bar and Pipe Rack, Flammable Cabinets, Security Cage
Details: Ramstein Air Base serves as headquarters for U.S. Air Forces in Europe. The base had used all of its storage space, requiring the reconfiguration and addition of material handling equipment in two storage buildings. In the first building, Warehouse1 reconfigured existing pallet rack into a narrow aisle system, complete with order pickers and reach trucks. The Wh1 team designed guide rail joints that saved on installation time as no welding or drilling was needed. The team also installed a portable office, issue counter, bar and pipe rack, 22 flammable cabinets and security cage for monitoring higher priced inventory. In the second building, the team provided and installed 61 sections of cantilever. Warehouse1 received an A+ rating on the project!
Nevada Air National Guard
City: Reno, Nevada
Project: Supplied and Installed Two Structural Mezzanine Systems, Two Rack-Supported Mezzanine Systems, Pallet Rack, Cabinets, Removable Casters
Details: This project was in a brand new building that required extensive expertise to construct. The building is split in half, with one half housing the Telecommunications Corps and the other half housing the Security Forces Corps. Warehouse1 constructed four mezzanines: two rack supported and two structural. There were also minimal sections of short pallet rack, three Lyons cabinets, and five sets of specialty removable casters for large multi-use pallets. The base, as well as the contracting officer and project engineer, were extremely happy with the outcome of this project as Warehouse1 actually came in 3 weeks early on our due date!
State of Florida Department of Health
City: Orlando, Florida
Project: Supplied and Installed Drive-in Pallet Rack
Details: The Florida Department of Health houses emergency relief supplies in a 295,000 square foot
emergency response warehouse in Orlando. The Department delivers these relief supplies to support the local and statewide population in case of any natural disaster. The facility was at maximum storage capacity: 5,000 pallet positions of bottled water. Warehouse1 provided a high density storage solution that DOUBLED the capacity of the facility to 10,000 pallet positions in the same amount of square footage which, in turn, decreased the cost of storage by 50%! Warehouse1 implemented a complete turnkey solution for the Department by designing the drive-in pallet rack system, supplying the material and providing the installation services.
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
City: Dayton, Ohio
Project: Supplied and Installed Pallet Rack, Security Cage, Issue Counter
Details: Warehouse1 won this project through the Department of Defense’s competitive bid process. The project included installing 104 sections of pallet rack used to store mobility bags (supply bags given to soldiers being deployed), upgrading fluorescent lighting, constructing a 2,000 square-foot security cage and providing 44 worktables. After reviewing the design and consulting with Wright Patterson project managers, we improved the design and upgraded the materials employed.
