It's been a few weeks since I last blogged about the project and a lot has been done in that time. The shelving construction is just about complete. Spacesaver and the Rack Pros erected the shelving in three stages starting at the back of the warehouse. They are now completing the third module. Work space is pretty tight in the warehouse now but the guys seem to be managing pretty well. Hopefully they will be done by June 30, 2011 then there are numerous inspections involving the sprinkler system and various alarms. In early July any final details will be attended to (the 'punch list'). We can then begin to accession materials back into the facility with the helpful guidance of our newest best friend Christine Brennan from Generation Fifth Associates.
In the meantime we have a great crew working on bar coding and pre-sorting as much stuff as we can. We'll have plenty of items ready to be trayed and shelved as soon as we can get into the door of the new Ivy Stacks.
I almost hate to keep saying this but so far so good.
