A private archive can encompass anything from paper records and book keeping to legal documents and corporate heritage. As with any archive there is more to consider than simply how much needs storing and where although these are important questions.
Just some other considerations are:
- What needs to be stored? – are the items all the same size or is there a mix of sizes, weights etc
- What are the access requirements? – long term storage for items such as book keeping which has to be stored for a set time period of time by law or is frequent access required, or a combination of the two
- Where is the archive situated? – An offsite archive or a single archive serving a large office block or even individual archives per floor or section of the business
- Are their unique circumstances? – Do the items being stored have temperature or lighting sensitivities
All of this must be discussed alongside budget, current and future requirements – will the inventory of items to be archived continue to grow, whether the archive is a new build, amalgamation of current archives, extension or refurbishment project and much more.
