Premier Storage creates contemporary office space on mezzanine floor

Premier Storage and Office Solutions, an innovative design and build company from Doncaster, has completed a fabulous £26,000 refurbishment of what was previously a warehouse unit for direct mail and print/data management company, Propack in Huddersfield.

Creating a mezzanine floor to take advantage of space in the warehouse, the Premier Storage team took only 15 days to create sleek and modern offices, using a specialist partitioning system made by Komfort Partitioning Ltd.  The angular style of the versatile Komfire 75 system gave Propack the contemporary look it wanted, whilst at the same time offering an excellent, functional office and meeting room space.

Premier Storage sales manager, Tara Gough, says “We used the Komfire system as I feel that it is the best product on the market in terms of quality of materials, installation simplicity and value for money. Of course we had some stiff competition, but our ability to complete the whole installation in a tight timescale and fit in with Propack’s schedule, as well as our competitive pricing, were key to our getting the job.

We erected the mezzanine over a weekend to cause minimal disruption to Propack’s business and the finished product is testament to ours and Propack’s ability to adapt and move forward with daily challenges.”

Propack said “Tara and the Premier Storage team were of great help during the planning stage.  Their assistance and knowledge during the planning identified that they were going to be our preferred partner during this project.

Propack is a 24hour production facility, so a key part of this project was that disruption to production should be the absolute minimum. The project management skills of Tara ensured that this requirement was met and the building was completed on time and within budget.

We are very happy with the end result: the quality of build is outstanding. The additional space and working environment created is invaluable to our sales team as we grow our business. I am certain we will be working with Tara and Premier Storage again sometime in the future.”

Premier Storage Puts Everything Under One Roof For St Leger Homes

Everything, including the kitchen sink – that is exactly what St Leger Homes wanted to house in its new depot at Shaw Lane Industrial Estate in Doncaster, and Doncaster’s Premier Storage has made that possible.

Merging the facilities of several depots into one 1820 square metre unit, St Leger Homes – DMBC’s Arm’s Length Management Organisation (ALMO) which manages 21,000 council homes – has created a fantastic administration and storage facility that is both efficient and cost effective with the help of Premier Storage.

Premier Storage won the contract, valued at over £100,000, beating off stiff competition on the way. Working with St Leger Homes from the very beginning, Premier Storage’s Managing Director, Mark Jepson was heavily involved with the contract.

He says “I am delighted that we won this piece of work and that St Leger Homes chose the Dexion system, for which we are the sole distributor in this area. St Leger Homes’ other depots had the same systems installed so they are quite used to it and know that it is secure, practical, reliable and that parts are easy to obtain. I designed the system for St Leger Homes and worked quite closely with them, so they know exactly who they are dealing with and who they need to talk to regarding the system’s maintenance etc. The build and installation went very smoothly, despite its complexity, taking only 7 weeks from placing the order to completion. It houses everything from kitchens to beds, and all of these things need to be quickly and easily accessible, so we used quite an array of storage systems including racking, cantilever, long span, normal shelving and a mezzanine floor. As usual, I sourced all of my labour locally – this time everyone was from Rossington – and was absolutely delighted with the results.”

Mark is now discussing further work with St Leger Homes including car park solutions, small part storage and labelling, so the relationship looks likely to flourish further.

St Leger Homes has established the new centralised depot as part of a move to achieve business efficiencies. The company manages around 21,000 properties on behalf of Doncaster Council and carries out more than 130,000 repairs, maintenance and gas servicing visits each year.
