Healthcare Projects

Paragon Care

Paragon Care is an integrated provider of diagnostics, equipment and devices to the healthcare market.

When Paragon Care consolidated 3 existing sites into their new state-of-the-art premises at Scoresby Victoria, they contacted Bowen Storage for a complete fitout of their new warehouse and the relocation of several other storage facilities.

Due to business expansion and growth, Paragon Care was unable to keep pace with its storage and distribution needs.

Their requirements were:

  • Consolidate existing warehouses to a single facility for enhanced stock control
  • Design and construct a customised storage solution for their brand new facility
  • Increase storage density and improve throughput
  • Allow staff to access stock quickly and easily whilst ensuring optimal storage conditions

After careful consultation with the Paragon Care project management team, we designed a solution that provided:

  • A customised mezzanine storage system to optimise height
  • The layout of the storage system was carefully designed to maximise capacity, taking into consideration staff amenities, emergency egress, and final order fulfillment processes
  • Racking and shelving storage systems
  • Workbenches and safety handrail
  • A carefully coordinated consolidation plan to allow minimal disruption to business whilst the existing sites were consolidated
  • After hours relocation of shelving fully stocked to allow the despatch team to continue unhindered

The new warehouse storage solution maximised operational efficiency and delivered significant improvements in order fulfillment.

The new solution has delivered scalability – a critical requirement of the project. Future growth can be easily accommodated, as space and resources have been allocated for additional racking, shelving, and despatch workstations to meet long-term business objectives.

Epworth Healthcare

Epworth Healthcare is Victoria’s largest Not-For-Profit private hospital group, with 11 sites throughout Victoria, and over 10,000 staff.

When they needed a trusted provider to fitout their warehouse, they reached out to Bowen Storage to handle the project.

The brief from Epworth Hospital was to implement new pallet racking in their new warehouse and relocate their existing small parts shelving from their existing warehouse to the new facility.

Additionally, they needed our design team to increase warehouse storage capacity, design and supply the storage solutions and project manage the installation over several stages.

Bowen Storage used our in-house design engineers to configure the new warehouse layout to improve efficiency and throughput.

This included supplying our Stow pallet racking and incorporating white melamine shelves suitable for medical products.

Shelving for medical parts and supplies was also relocated from the existing site, increasing available floor space for pallet racking.

We relocated their existing shelving in stages to ensure continued operations whilst being relocated. This included the removal of the old bulk pallet racking, making it easy for Epworth to exit the old facility.

The installation of the project was managed by Bowen Storage and carried out in several stages. Downtime was minimised by liaising closely with the client and installing the storage systems around their existing stock and daily order picking schedules.

  • The layout of the storage system was carefully designed to maximise capacity, taking into consideration staff amenities, emergency egress, and final order fulfillment processes
  • Racking and shelving storage systems
  • Workbenches and safety handrail
  • A carefully coordinated consolidation plan to allow minimal disruption to business whilst the existing sites were consolidated
  • After hours relocation of shelving fully stocked to allow the despatch team to continue unhindered

Our storage solution maximised operational efficiency and delivered significant improvements

  • Scalability
  • Additional space and resources
  • Increased inventory accuracy
  • Improved inventory rotation

Bowen Storage worked in close partnership with Epworth Hospital and their supply chain logistics consultant throughout all stages of the project to ensure key performance objectives were achieved. Since the initial installation and relocation, Bowen has now assisted Epworth with additional storage systems to help them grow.

Cotham Hospital

Located in Kew, Cotham Private Hospital has been contributing to the provision of high quality care since opening in 1970. Cotham Private is a 60-bed hospital with four operating suites and a dedicated lithotripsy suite.

Cotham Private Hospital needed a storage solution that maximised the limited space available within the hospital and also met the stringent hygiene requirements of the medical industry.

After consultation with Cotham Private Hospital, Bowen Storage supplied and installed a mobile storage solution that utlised the space in the most effective manner.

The stainless steel shelving was configured as a mobile top track storage unit providing clear uninterrupted floor access for cleaning and trolley access.

Plastic shelves and wire baskets were included as they are ideally suited to meet the strict hygiene requirements of the hospital environment.

Bowen Storage was able to deliver an effective storage solution that maximised the available storage space in the small existing storage room.

Using a mobile storage unit meant that more of the hospital’s essential supplies could be held reducing the frequency of replenishment orders.

The mobile unit also made cleaning the room easy as each trolley could be moved out of the way for cleaning.
