Adaptive Re-Use & Flex Spaces
One of the best ways to conserve resources is to renovate an existing building instead of building new.
Clients often come to us because they’re trying to find space for technology and collaboration while still maintaining ever-growing inventory. By mounting shelving units on compact storage systems, or by moving items off-site, our clients can free up space for collaborative work areas, new technology, or more workstations for growing teams.
Space for More Materials
High-density racking created more storage space in this warehouse for building materials and other supplies and equipment. The racking slides on rails to eliminate wasted space in the aisles. See how high-density storage works.
Space for Technology
The books on the second floor of this library were moved to off-site shelving, and the space was adapted to accommodate modern technology. The area serves as a classroom during the day and as a study area at night.
Space for New Employees
This business needed more offices to accommodate new employees, so printed materials and promotional items were consolidated on high-density shelving to save space.
Space for Programs
This library’s bookstore opens for business in the morning and closes at night, freeing up space for after-hours receptions and other programming.

Spacesaver’s mobile racking systems eliminate empty aisles, which allows virtually any facility to:
High-density shelving systems slide on rails, allowing more items to be stored in less space.
Reduce Energy Costs
These systems create a smaller, more densely packed storage area, which means lower costs for heating and cooling.
Improve Labor Productivity
By allowing 100% accessibility and a more compact storage area, high-density storage eliminates unnecessary touches and reduces travel times between tasks..
The air inside indoor grow facilities must be controlled for temperature and humidity. The larger the facility, the greater the resource use.
Our vertical racking systems help optimize space and create ideal conditions for plant growth and development. For decades, Spacesaver’s ActivRAC™ Mobilized Storage Systems have been moving heavy loads over long spans on military bases and in industrial warehouses throughout North America. Because the Spacesaver system is so strong, it’s able to support two or more levels of plants, lights, fans, and irrigation systems.
After an indoor growing mobile system was installed, this facility nearly doubled its yields in the room. The increased productivity in that room justified the need for new vertical farming systems in additional rooms. In each phase we worked with staff to minimize disruption and downtime, timing the new system installation to coincide with the end of each room’s harvest.
