Montel, a global leader of high-density mobile storage shelving system solutions, is pleased to announce that it has completed the mobile storage shelving contract for the Vancouver Police Department Property and Forensic Storage Facility.

In conjunction with Montel’s local Authorized Distributor, Bury Media and Supplies, this mobile storage shelving contract was part of an important upgrade to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) Property Office & Forensic Storage Facility. Estimated at $30.3 million, this project involved the development of a Property & Forensic Storage Facility including an additional 65,000 square feet to provide a new consolidated Property Office for receiving, storage and safekeeping of found and seized property and evidence, and the construction of vehicle forensic laboratories and associated storage.

“Montel is very pleased to have participated in the VPD Property and Forensic Storage Facility,” said Yves Bélanger, National Sales Manager – Canada at Montel. “The successful completion of this mobile storage shelving contract is the result of a dedicated and committed Montel and Bury Media team effort. Working with different key players in the project allowed Montel to enhance its mobile storage expertise and strengthen its leadership in the industry.”

For this new state-of-the-art facility, Montel’s scope in the project involved the supply and installation of high-density powered storage systems, high-density mechanical storage systems, and hybrid 4-Post shelving. Key safety and security features are found on these design storage units, preventing users from getting injured or trapped by the moving systems, and for this specialized application, securing the collected evidence which is housed on a versatile storage shelving system.

Expected project results by the VPD are to provide a consolidated and secure property storage office to satisfy the evidentiary needs, upgrade existing public safety facilities, and relocate the forensic operations to modern facilities.
