Ben’s Storage Solutions already had 4 very successful self storage container sites at Walton, Sunbury, Oxford and Slough and were looking to further develop their business. An opportunity arose at their Slough site to redevelop a building and add a “traditional” self storage facility to the portfolio.

Storage Future were contracted to supply and install the following:


  • Single level 3,800 sq.ft. mezzanine floor to BRE 437;
  • 60 min fire protection to mezzanine and stairs;
  • Full electrical and smoke detection systems to both floors;
  • Reception / office and disabled toilet facilities;
  • Self storage corridor and partitioning systems, and external shutters;
  • Access control systems including CCTV and individual storage unit door alarms.

Including 6 externally accessed units, a total of 85 self storage units were created varying in size from 20 sq.ft to 320 sq.ft within a total store size of just over 8,750 sq.ft.

An efficiency of 86% in net rentable area/gross floor area was achieved.
