Warehouse Layout Design

The company is a general contractor specialized in the restoration of building envelopes. It owns a warehouse located in Montreal where five employees prepare and deliver jacking and scaffolding equipment, tooling and construction material to more than a dozen constructions sites in Quebec and in the Maritimes.

GCC mandate was to develop a warehouse layout plan. The requirements were that it had to be logical and safe, had to maximize use of available space, minimize movements and supports the company’s processes already in place. Through rigorous application of the Systematic Layout Planning method, different scenarios were generated and evaluated. GCC then identified and proposed the most appropriate one for the company’s need. The new layout was put in place in the within the established deadlines. Delivery time was reduced by 50 % and equipment failures are now almost inexistent.
