Mezzanines are suspended floors that can be built to create more space in your warehouse, office or retail space. They are typically made from steel, aluminium or fibreglass, and they are used as an extra floor that sits between the base and ceiling, covering a section of the building.
When your business is running out of space, it is often the first thought to move to a larger location. However, the creation of a mezzanine floor can provide your business with a variety of benefits and save you money.
In this guide, we will explore why a mezzanine is an important business tool and help you decide whether or not you should have one built in your premises.
The advantages of a mezzanine floor
Installing a mezzanine floor will significantly increase the amount of space available to your business. This will be of great benefit if you have recently hired more staff or need to increase your storage options.
You can increase your capacity by double, depending on the size of your mezzanine. This allows you to make the most of the space that’s available in your office or warehouse instead of having an open area with limited functionality.
Saving money is crucial for any business and should be one of the biggest factors in your decision making process. There are a number of ways that a mezzanine floor can save you money, such as avoiding moving costs, reducing energy costs and avoiding additional CO2 emissions.
Building a mezzanine floor helps reduce the cost of energy for a business, as it helps create more condensed workspaces that retain heat and minimise heat consumption, which in turn saves money on the bills.
A mezzanine floor is easy to install and is a simple solution to requiring more space in an office or warehouse. It’s very rare that a mezzanine installation requires any planning permission, so the whole process can be done very quickly when compared to other extensions.
The only things to look into are the terms of your lease if you work from a rented property, and building regulations. Once everything is in order, the construction of a mezzanine floor is straightforward and relatively quick.
Dismountable and relocatable
If you have a mezzanine floor in your property and continued growth means you still need to move to a larger premises, your mezzanine floor can be dismantled and relocated to any location you desire. Our team is on hand to ensure that this process runs as smoothly as possible.
