Mobile systems meet storage and design needs at high school
When Bray Associates designed the new Fort Atkinson High School in Fort Atkinson, Wis., it looked for ways to optimize project funding while providing ample storage space and maximizing student work areas. Nine mobile systems were used throughout the school including electric, mechanical assist and manual. Mobile systems are a less expensive option than using conventional shelving and building extra square footage onto a building.
The high school was designed with various educational pods, each consisting of a common area surrounded by classrooms. Adequate storage space was created within centralized storage rooms, each housing a mobile system.
Items used throughout the year are stored in each department's central storage room. The storage areas allow easy access to materials for everyone in the department, whereas if materials were stored in a classroom, they would be more difficult to share among teachers.
Several electric systems provide safe access and make it easy to move heavy loads. A programmable electric system with oblique hanging files is used in the music department for storing and organizing sheet music. A power assist electric system is used in the art and science departments for storing heavy loads of supplies and equipment. In the school store, a power-assist system provides easy access to school merchandise. Mechanical assist systems are used for smaller storage needs for storing textbooks and supplies.
The efficient design of the storage room allows departments to store more and move more things out of the classroom. This removes clutter and frees up more space for bookshelves, counters and workspace. It makes for a less distracting, more comfortable environment that is more conducive to teaching and learning.
