Museum Collections Storage at Chicago's Field Museum Protects History

Chicago’s Field Museum is one of the largest natural history museums in the world. With 24 million specimens in its collection and a growth rate of 200,000 items per year, the museum was struggling with not only having the right kind of storage, but enough storage. When the Museum embarked on a two-level, 180,000 square foot building to protect their collections, they reached out to us to help with storage systems that offered protection and accessibility.

Modern Storage and History Combine at St. Louis Public Library

Built over a hundred years ago and located in the heart of the city's vibrant downtown, the St. Louis Central Library's architecture has been a "must-visit" for visitors all over the world. The library was big on history—but small on remodeling throughout the years. Realizing that the building would need to be updated to better serve the community, the library's staff knew that everything started with the shelving and storage solutions they'd be able to create—and having worked with them on a separate off-site storage project several years prior, we knew we could deliver a solution.

Storage No Longer Suspect at Skokie Police Department

Located just 16 miles west of downtown Chicago, the village of Skokie, Illinois is home to over 65,000 people. The fast growth of the village came with more than a few growing pains—particularly for Skokie’s police department, who had outgrown the 27,000 square foot building it had been in many years before. Recognizing these issues, the village planned to convert an abandoned 79,300 square foot plant into a contemporary police headquarters. Skokie’s New Headquarters Team knew the role storage systems would play a huge role in the success of the renovation, and invited us to be part of the process early on.

But when it came to the organization of their football equipment room, the team was doing exactly that—fighting a battle with a less than ideal storage situation.
