Assessing a large offsite geological store to provide methodologies, costs and timings for decanting and re-storing the collection.

Nigel Larkin was recently employed to look at the logistics, conservation issues and health and safety aspects of a project to decant hundreds of thousands of geological specimens from an offsite store to another location. This included providing a detailed breakdown of all the tasks involved and how long they would take, the volume and type of shelving that would be needed at the new store, the likely transport costs and a list of issues to be resolved before exact costs of the project could be estimated.
This project entailed five daysí work in total (three days on site examining the stores and two days undertaking research and writing up the report at home at home) to produce a detailed 30-page report of over 12,000 words.
