Bruynzeel Archive Storage: Dudley Borough Archives and Local History Centre

Bruynzeel Archive Storage: Dudley Borough Archives and Local History Centre

Bruynzeel Storage Systems Ltd

Dudley Borough Archives and Local History Centre required a modern, archival facility for its valuable collection, having outgrown its previous home in Mount Pleasant, Coseley. They’d run out of space. In addition, they needed to get the environmental conditions right for archival material, and to do so in the existing building would not have been cost effective. A new building was the way forward. Bruynzeel supplied manual roller racking systems to maximise the capacity in the storage areas and allow space for a search room and exhibition space to guarantee fast public access to the collection.
Bruynzeel Archive storage: Heritage Quay, The University of Huddersfield

Bruynzeel Archive storage: Heritage Quay, The University of Huddersfield

Bruynzeel Storage Systems Ltd

Heritage Quay is the official archive of the University of Huddersfield. Previously they had nine separate storage locations in the building spread over four different floors. They had a big mould outbreak in one of the repositories before the move, and leaks too. By consolidating everything in one space they were able to increase efficiency and access. Improving the storage was a massive part of meeting current standards, and Bruynzeel went a long way to helping achieve Archive Service Accreditation.

Established in 1907 in Aberystwyth, the National Library of Wales holds over 6.5 million books and periodicals, and the largest collections of archives, portraits, maps and photos in Wales. Bruynzeel utilised its full range of storage options to ensure all the material in the collection could be accommodated, including archive items such as notes, drawings and multimedia files, photographic negatives, plans, framed artworks and artefacts – even rolls of aerial photographs. Each length of track for the mobile shelving needed to be individually tailored, as every aisle length is unique due to the triangular shape of the storage area.

Bruynzeel Museum storage: Lapworth Museum of Geology

Bruynzeel Museum storage: Lapworth Museum of Geology

Bruynzeel Storage Systems Ltd

The plan involved changing the Lapworth from a very academic university museum into a public access museum located on campus. A total redevelopment was required. The museum wanted to make the stores more accessible too. The storage situation at the Lapworth had become critical, compounded by an influx of material in recent years. There was a real danger of damage to the collection. The stores were very inefficient. The only way they could house everything was by improving efficiency. Mobile shelving was chosen as the best option for efficient use of space.

Bruynzeel Retail storage: Ede & Ravenscroft

Bruynzeel Retail storage: Ede & Ravenscroft

Bruynzeel Storage Systems Ltd

Ede & Ravenscroft, renowned supplier of ceremonial robes, required a storage solution that met a number of specific criteria: gowns, mortarboards, gloves and sashes had to be properly protected from dust, light and mites for long periods of time, yet needed to be quickly and easily accessible by staff during intensely busy periods. Bruynzeel’s mobile shelving provided the most efficient use of floor space. A characteristic of the 4m high mobile shelving system is its wide “floating” aisle, which enables Ede and Ravenscroft to have multi-person access to the storage, giving a more efficient workflow during busy periods.
