Warehouse Mezzanine Floor Conversions

Spacelink have provided interior fit-outs for warehouse conversions for over 25 years. Often, dual-purpose spaces require both a floor space for warehouse activity and a separated area for acoustically insulated offices, meeting or break-out spaces. Rather than incur the costs of separate premises, warehouse mezzanine offices are an effective solution. Utilising vertical space, warehouse mezzanine floors avoid intruding on essential production and warehouse activity below. Furthermore, warehouse mezzanine offices may be installed to move existing facilities to another level in order to free up space on the warehouse floor.

Why use a Mezzanine floor?

The installation of a mezzanine floor can enable companies to utilise unused space above the main floor area which makes it an excellent alternative to moving premises to acquire additional space in order to develop and grow your business at a fraction of the cost.

As mezzanine floor installers we design each floor to meet your individual building requirements, maximising the space at the floor level without minimising the ground floor usage.

The initial Survey and on-site dimensions are surveyed by qualified and skilled engineers to make sure we have the exact details we need to produce your design. As a mezzanine floor company we pride ourselves on not only delivering an outstanding level of design and workmanship but also delivering a project on time and on budget.

Are mezzanine floors suitable for industrial applications?

Yes, and it makes perfect sense to install them in this setting. For example, a busy warehouse floor where goods can be picked, packed and dispatched can sit below the mezzanine office space, which can feature acoustically protected offices, meeting rooms,breakout zones, storage, and kitchenettes.

What Are Mezzanine Floors Used For?

The purpose of a mezzanine floor is to utilise vertical space. A Mezzanine will cover a specific section of the floor without compromising on the space below. Not only do mezzanine installations introduce a dynamic design but they also bolster a sense of high activity in the workplace. Mezzanines floors offer multiple uses and business premises may utilise these for:

●       Mezzanine Office / Mezzanine Office Block

●       Production Space

●       Meeting Room

●       Storage Space

●       Kitchenette or Toilet Facilities

●       Break-out Space

●       Added Retail Space

 As a specialist commercial office refurbishment company, Spacelink are able to fit your commercial premises to suit any purpose.

As well as installing your mezzanine and mezzanine staircase, Spacelink can take care of any electrical or plumbing work, office partitioning and decorating requirements. In addition, suspended ceilings may be worth exploring when a mezzanine floor is installed as lighting, insulation or acoustics may need improving, particularly if introducing mezzanine office blocks or meeting rooms.

Mezzanine Floor Construction

The first step of the process will be assessing the requirements of your office, from the usage of the floor to multi-tiered flooring. Depending on the intended purpose of the floor, you may need planning permission. Following this, one of our engineers will assess the area including any potential safety risks, and the height and width of the space. 

When the necessary permission has been gained, we can begin designing the floor to meet your requirements, from the materials used to the number of floors and if storage abilities are required. Once the design has been approved by you, we can start construction. The build time can take several weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project, but it’s typically a much quicker option for expansion compared to relocating or purchasing a larger property. 

Building Regulations

The construction of mezzanine flooring comes with strict regulations. An assessment needs to be carried out by industry experts to ensure that the premise is eligible for mezzanine flooring – our engineers can ensure that Building Regulation approval is gained to ensure the installation is in line with the necessary standards. Planning permission is not usually required for this type of flooring, although there are exceptions, but we can assess whether this will be necessary before we commence the work. 

Mezzanine Floor Fire Safety

The right ceiling can actually slow the spread of fire, which is why each ceiling has a fire rating depending on the effectiveness in slowing the spread of fire. The property may require a fire hood to keep the building safe during the construction of your mezzanine floor, as well as a smoke detection system both above and beneath the floor. This ensures that your property adheres to the relevant regulations.
