Mezzanine floor construction - 4 things to consider


4 Things to Consider When it Comes to Mezzanine Floor Construction

Mezzanine floor construction is popular in residential and commercial settings, making the most of empty vertical space to offer additional room. Mezzanine floors can be used for a variety of things, from more offices right through to extra storage levels. The benefits of opting for mezzanine floor construction are ample. Not only can they be erected swiftly and thus offer extra space fast, but since they are a semi-permanent solution, they can be dismantled when needed.

They also have the cost factor on their side, boasting greater affordability than permanent construction options. As an added bonus, if you do decide to move in the future, you can use the existing materials if the new space allows another level.

When it comes to mezzanine level construction, engineers and installers must consider the following 4 features:

  • Ventilation:

Since hot air rises, these levels can get warm if proper ventilation is not considered. Happily, qualified teams will consider this when planning your design and part of the construction process will entail installing adequate ventilation systems. This will keep the extra level cool in those hot summer months and warm enough during winter.

  • Lighting:

Lighting is essential to any mezzanine level, primarily if it is being used as an office. While some buildings will have natural light sources and high-rise windows, others will need some additional lighting. Here, you can also decide on light switch placement, with many choosing to install light switches on the bottom floor for added ease.

  • Safety:

Safety is paramount when it comes to the construction of these floors. Safety features could include handrails, smoke alarms, security alarms, and wire mesh. Before installation, we will chat with you about your safety requirements to ensure they are all met once construction finishes.

  • Accessibility:

Construction is all about meeting your unique needs. If your additional level is being used for an extra office or client reception, it may require wheelchair access. This can be arranged during the planning process to ensure accessibility for all.
