Comprehensive workshop storage equipment fit out project for a UK Boating Team.

The client researched the market and selected 6 suitable companies to tender for the project based on their initial concept / layout.

Garage Ikon presented initial design ideas on how to optimise the storage space for large bulky items, small parts and provide suitable work areas.

The contract was awarded to Garage Ikon for various reasons including: -

  • Quality of units – durability, finish, double skin sides, gauge of steel, adjustable levelling feet etc.
  • The installation service offered
  • The design
  • Expertise and Knowledge of the systems
  • Price – The price range difference was not great across the top 3 companies tendering. Therefore it was not the key differentiator.

There is circa 40 individual storage units within this installation with a 10.6m seamless biscuit jointed industrial lino worktop on the main run. There are multiple storage cabinets for bulk storage, bins for consumables and drawers for tooling.

The left hand wall is a run of sliding door units so that when the doors are open they do not encroach over the fire exit.

Bespoke depth units were utilised and a mobile drawer unit was included in the package so that tools could be taken to the job if required.

Garage Ikon quote – “We were delighted to be awarded this contract and to see the workshop from the initial design to the finished article is pleasing.”

The units were manufactured and the installation took place over 2 days.
