We've been starting to move some collections into the facility. Here Kira carefully places our standard size green Enviropack boxes that hold collections from the Museum of Ontario Archaeology (next door) onto the shelves with the assistance of the Work Assist Vehicle (WAVE). You can see why we limit the weight of boxes to 45 lbs or less! Not only does the bottom start to sag when packed materials get too heavy, it can be difficult to maneuver a heavy box from the WAVE onto the shelf at such a height. Shelves in the Western facility reach 16 feet or just under 5 meters in height. At capacity, this facility will house over 54,000 of these boxes.
