Updates to the Storage Area

Winter is a great time of year for our department to analyze our maintenance facility and look for areas where we can improve an update the overall appearance and functionality of our space.  One area that we have been looking to improve for a few years is our back storage area.  This is an area that was once shared space with the Golf Staff.  They utilized this area in the summer for washing and storing range balls.  Now that they have a new building we have the space to ourselves.

The original shelving was installed in 1997 and was in great need of replacement.  That shelving has been replaced with stronger more supportive metal shelves.  Since this area is where water coolers are cleaned and filled with water and ice the main purpose of the shelves will be to store the coolers.
What might be our best addition to the room is our new washer and dryer and storage cabinets.  Typically tee towels and other assorted items that need cleaning are sent to the club house.  This is not always convenient for us and we wanted to have more control over when the towels are cleaned and where they are stored.  Nick was not only able to find a used unit on Craiglist but he completed all of the necessary plumbing and venting work.
A number of years ago the club was in need of a new cardboard compactor, instead of trading the old compactor, we took it off their hands and have be utilizing it in our facility for a number of years. The compactor is great to have in the building and we know all cardboard is being properly recycled.
