On Monday October 13th 2014 we arrived early at our customer’s building, with everything needed to install a mezzanine floor in one day. Did we do it? Read on to find out…

Who’s the customer?
Dove House Motor Company in Rushden is one of the UK’s leading Porsche and Prestige Sports Car specialists. They have a temperature controlled viewing environment where customers can view a large selection of vehicles such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus and Aston Martin as well as Maserati, BMW, Mercedes and other premium marques all under one roof.

What was the brief?
The customer needed to find more space in their existing workshop/stores area after a new car lift had been installed and had left them short on space.

What was the solution?
A mezzanine floor was the best option to provide an additional 26 squ metres of storage space to hold lubricant drums and some larger equipment and shelving for lighter items. A new tyre rack could be fitted along the edge of the floor, adjacent to the car rig to allow for convenient ‘ready to use’ storage. The mezzanine floor solution effectively gave the customer more than double the existing space!

What preparation was done before the big day?
Cubex Contract’s Andy MacKenzie designed and planned the mezzanine installation after a visit to the customer’s workshop. Once the project plan was approved, we notified Building Regulations prior to the installation date and arranged for a forklift to be on site for the day to assist the team.

Here’s photos from the day:


The site is cleared and the space is now ready for the installation of the mezzanine floor to begin.



The new mezzanine floor has its shelving installed and parts laid out for storage



The new mezzanine floor providing a live load of 4.8kN per squ metre and up to 500kg point loading is completed – less than 8 hours after the first photo was taken.

And that’s how Cubex Contracts installs “a mezzanine floor in a day!”

Customer said:

We used Cubex to construct a mezzanine floor in our workshop in order to free up space for a new ramp to be fitted. It was only a small job that they managed to do within a day but everything was undertaken very professionally and efficiently right through from the initial visit for quotation, to completion.

The construction team did a fantastic job and were very helpful and courteous in working round our technicians that were busy continuing with their usual work.
