Kent County Council set up Commercial Services to provide goods and services for the council’s own directorates and for a range of approved public bodies. It is a self-funding unit, tasked to deliver products and services that represent best value for money and meet local government purchasing legal requirements. Its staff are experts in their respective fields and provide a quality service.
The Supply Chain Consulting Group (SCCG) was engaged by Kent Commercial Services to provide detailed warehouse design for their new warehouse facility to include: Pallet racking and shelving bay layouts for storage of primary and overstock items; Bulk storage and picking areas for paper products; Furniture storage and defined work areas for equipment cleaning and de-contamination.
The SCCG team of Specialist Supply Chain and Logistics Consultants developed facility layouts with a community equipment storage area, defined work areas for Tele Health/Tele Care, goods in/marshalling areas, despatch/marshalling areas, packing stations and defined work areas and storage areas for salt and sand.
In addition to the design of the facility, SCCG worked closely with architects and builders to ensure that all design requirements (including CDM and HSE requirements) were met.
SCCG subsequently project managed the fit-out with racking and equipment suppliers and the transfer of stock from the existing facility to the new one to ensure the new DC was operational by the deadlines.
The 200,000 sq. facility was designed, built and operational with 12 months of the start of the design project.
