BBC Scotland, Glasgow
Bruynzeel supplied the installation of mobile shelving for the storage of the digital tapes containing our favourite television programmes for the new digital broadcasting centre for BBC Scotland in Glasgow. The new facility has been positioned in the ‘Digital Quarter’ at Pacific Quay on the banks of the River Clyde.
The Information & Archives Vault is situated on the 2nd floor in the heart of the building Although budget was a consideration the client also wanted a solution that was aesthetically pleasing. The safety of the vault users was also paramount.
Constructor offered a Compactus® solution. The provision of safety aisle locks and torque limiters (slipping clutch) throughout the solution offers excellent user safety.
For aesthetic purposes the client requested that the system guide rails be installed into the existing computer floor as well as picking glass end panels from the selection of finishes offered.
The system offers BBC Scotland over 8,000 linear metres of storage in 8 blocks.
