1 AIA/CES HSW LU
The design mandate is clear. “Do more with less space!” High-density storage systems can approach or even exceed twice the storage capacity in the same floor space or free up space for other activities. The increased storage density results in increased floor loads which, if not anticipated or properly planned for, can lead to floor load compliance and operational problems down the road. With an essential understanding of high-density mobile storage systems and their load transfer characteristics the non-engineer and engineer alike will become conversant in issues related to optimizing storage space within a building. Speed up the building design and decision making process by avoiding unnecessary delays and changes. Furthermore, the architect, designer and structural engineer should be able to identify the new construction building types most suitable for high-density storage. Moreover, several strategies exist to accommodate heavy storage system loads. These include the ability to reorient, redistribute, relocate, reconfigure and reinforce. This program contains an illustrated case study as well as several examples of post construction modifications and supplements for high-density storage.
- Describe high-density mobile storage load transfer characteristics
- Identify building construction types most suitable for high-density mobile storage systems
- Application of post construction modifications and supplements for storage systems
