Benefits of mezzanine floors for businesses
Mezzanine floors are the new space saving and money saving things in the market. Let us look at the benefits associated with these.
I could be more cost effective to install mezzanines than to acquire new premises. Such a floor can add a new dimension to your office premises by making use of the overhead space. This will give your company the extra space it requires without actually shelling out the cost of new premises. The best idea would be to outsource not only the building but also the designing of this additional floor as it would save you considerable amount of resources.
Different uses of mezzanines
These additional floors can be used for accommodating offices and to increase the production space. You can use this floor as a retail outlet/showroom, viewing gallery, laboratory, office accommodation, assembly production, gym, canteen or staff rooms. You can get these floors designed to your specifications. A good design company will create a bespoke design to meet your specific requirements. Site conditions, building regulations, safety and access are some of the things that a good design company will consider while installing such a floor in your premises.
Mezzanines can look quite good with the proper use of colours and design options. The staircases, gates, walls and other structural elements can be blended with the overall design of your brand and internal décor. This will be great if you are using the additional space as a showroom or any other space open to the public.
Sometimes planning permission is not required
If you are going to use the Mezzanine floor solely for storage purposes then you do not need to take planning permission or other building regulations. In other cases such permissions and regulations become necessary. Good design companies will take care of all such formalities and take care of the paper work and leg work on your behalf. They will also be adept at using the materials and designs which are compliant with these regulations.
If you can provide your designers with detailed plans of the space and your requirements then most of the planning can be done off site. A good design company will provide you with detailed plans and designs for your approval. They will also advise you the date of installation well in advance so that you can make alternative arrangements. They will also let you know in advance how long the installation will take so that you can plan accordingly.
