A Utility's LEED Project

The Challenge

A large Utility in Vancouver was renovating their tower floor by floor.   Everything they renovate must be LEED certified.  LEED certification is a green initiative that prioritizes the best use of utilities like power and heating.   The location is prime real estate, and not only do square feet come at a premium, one of the key contributors to LEED certification is shrinking the footprint to save on utility consumption.   One of the challenges the Utility faced was how to store all their binders, client files, and records in a smaller space than traditional file cabinets, allowing for the maximum amount of office space for efficient use of staff desks and boardrooms.

The Solution

Acme Visible mobile storage systems are used throughout the tower, absolutely maximizing every inch of available storage space.   Our Mizer carriages offer a long term mobile solution.   Anti-tip seismic tracks make the mobile safe and smooth to operate.   Acme's Mizer mechanical mobile systems store binders and files in about 1/3 the footprint of conventional cabinets, while matching the aesthetics of the office.   The office's modest storage footprints allow for the Utility's current and future requirements, while meeting the LEED green initiatives of the downtown tower.
