The client’s Records Center and Extension Site 1 in Lee’s Summit has an expiring lease and substantial capacity expansion need to support the projected future record growth. With the need to store 2.9M linear feet of records by 2030, a substantially dense, efficient and innovative solution was required to support the growth.
A Program of Requirements (POR) was developed for the new facility that incorporated a highly automated system for record storage and retrieval. This system included an initial 8 vault Autostore or Attabotics ASRS solution at 250K cubic feet of files per vault, a high-speed routing system to automate and accelerate record movement throughout the facility and an automated high-priority Autonomous Mobile Robot system to expedite priority requests to the downstream destination.
How We Did It
JSC, in partnership with Jacobs, supported the process through a multi-phased process that included:
- Space Planning – to properly size and scope the facility by functional area
- Technology Assessment – to identify the right technology fit that provided a return on investment
- Detailed Design – to build a detailed concept design of the system and processes
- Requirements Definition – to define the system and equipment requirements at a detailed functional level
What Is Next
JSC, in partnership with Jacobs, is currently engaged in a POR development process to install a test ASRS system in the existing NRC, which will serve as a proof of concept for the future state NRC.
