Space Planning - Get the True Use of Your Warehouse Space

Why utilize a separate fire protection engineer and material handling specialist when you can fnid both in one  place?  Cato Industrial Group can speed up your deal by offering the following free services to the broker, end user, or both:

  • Our expertise is in material handling and fire protection engineerinng, therefore we understand the terminology used on both fields, and we can bridge the information and terminology gaps that exist.
  • We know immediately what storage heights and configurations will work with the commodities being stored - no more finding out AFTER you have signed the lease.
  • Therefore, we work with the architect, GC, brokers, and design team to assist in laying out the warehouse design with pallet racks so that a full use of the space is obtained, and all parties involved can understand the full scope of work from office space planning to egress and warehouse lighting layouts.  All we ask is the opportunity to bid on the pallet rack system and material handling equipment.
  • We work side by side with everyone so that no time is wasted and no task is duplicated, saving time and money.
  • In the end, the deliverable our fire code consulting team provides is a high piled storage design that works with your warehouse fire protection, ensuring the full use of your pallet racking.
