How to Utilise Unused Space with Effective Warehouse Design

Businesses use warehouses for various functions, including storage and manufacturing. An effective warehouse design will maximise the floorspace and efficiency of such a building. Some storage facilities have lower roofs, which means that there is no room for an additional level. Luckily, Avalon Steel Projects offers solutions for businesses wanting to optimise space in their warehouse buildings. We can assist in lifting the roof of your facility to make room for a mezzanine level. We can also design a building from scratch to suit your requirements.

Normally, warehouses are built to offer open-plan floors. Therefore, any vertical structural support should be minimised, should there be any. With a wide floorspace in mind, the roof will usually be a steel structure to avoid any vertical support. Our roof lifting solution allows us to raise such a structure and increase the inner space of the building. This method is useful for companies that require a mezzanine level installation. We can assist in that part of the process as well. With this combination, you can increase the floorspace and efficiency of your facility.

An Effective Design

If you require a steel structure for a roof of a large building, or an entire building on its own, we offer structural steel solutions to accommodate your needs. An effective warehouse delivers accessible areas for material handling, equipment, and personnel. By designing such a structure, we can assure that every need is met through efficient engineering. As a result, your business will reap the benefits of optimised functionality and floorspace usage. This process will also eliminate the chances of creating voided space in your facility.

For established warehouses, the design can always be altered to result in a more effective facility. If the floorspace is limited and there is enough room to install a mezzanine level, we can assist. Our intermediate floors use Stimber beams as vertical support, only requiring minimal space below to be efficient. Therefore, the mezzanine level will only require a small amount of existing floorspace to install. These levels are semi-permanent, giving you the freedom to remove or relocate them at a later stage. This function is useful for future renovations as well.

If you need an increase in overall storage space, it might be time to raise the roof of the building. This method will create enough space between the ground floor and roof to install another level. This mezzanine level can drastically increase useable floorspace in the building. The extra floorspace can be used for offices, storage, or workplace extensions. As a result, the layout of the building will be more effective. In conclusion, if you need to optimise your storage facility or space, a more efficient layout could be a workable solution for your business.

Avalon Steel Projects offers a comprehensive approach to effective design, and we can also fabricate and construct steel structures according to the needs of your business. We can also deliver roof-lifting solutions to create space for a mezzanine floor installation. For more info on how we can assist you, please peruse our website for details.
