Planning an Ideal Mezzanine Floor Layout
A mezzanine floor is a useful solution to add another level to a building or facility. This type of structure can create more floor space to utilise in accordance with the needs of the specific facility. Therefore, having a solid plan that lays out the intermediate level before it is installed will give you a good idea of what to expect once it is complete. Relocation is the common solution when a building’s space becomes too small; however, this is avoidable when installing an intermediate level.
A floor plan for a mezzanine level will be based on the layout of the current facility, the vertical space between the ground level and the ceiling, and the function of the intended intermediate level. These structures can be installed against the walls of the building, only taking up a limited amount of space. They can also be installed to create an entirely new level in a building that has enough vertical space to accommodate such an installation. So, let’s explore how such a structure can function within different settings and look at the various benefits of an intermediate level.
Uses and Benefits of an Intermediate Level
The basic function of any mezzanine floor is to create additional floor space within a building that can accommodate such an installation. The extra space can be used for a multitude of functions. Within a storage facility, you can plan your building to accommodate extra offices or increased storage space. However, the largest concern is that such an installation might impede the level below it. Our solution minimally encroaches upon the lower floor and still allows forklifts and other lifting equipment to get around easily once the structure is installed.
Arenas and facilities that are used for weekly gatherings will eventually need a solution for gallery seating. By planning a layout that allows for a mezzanine floor to be installed, you can easily create more seating in such a space to accommodate more people. If you have a big event coming up, this type of structure can also be very useful for staging and temporary seating for the event. It is considered a semi-permanent structure, which means that it can be relocated or completely removed once it has served its purpose.
If you are operating in a warehouse-type building that is cramped or doesn’t have enough vertical space available to install a mezzanine floor, we have a solution for you. We can raise the roof on such a building to create enough vertical space to install an intermediate level. Instead of expanding horizontally, we can expand your building vertically to result in a completely new level. If this sounds like a good plan for you, we can accommodate your needs to avoid you having to relocate your facility due to a lack of space.
