Industrial Mezzanines Northampton
The ideal solution to expanding your busy production facility
Did you know an industrial mezzanine can virtually double your workspace?
An industrial mezzanine floor is an elevated platform that is installed between the original floor and ceiling of a building. Commonly constructed from stainless steel or carbon, industrial mezzanines are usually free-standing meaning they can be dismantled and moved easily should the need ever arise.
When a business has been short on space, mezzanine floors have always been a great solution to creating additional areas to operate from within your existing workspace, taking advantage of the room above your head – you can virtually double (if not triple!) your storage or production space with an industrial mezzanine… just imagine what you could do with all of that additional space?
Industrial mezzanines are incredibly popular among Northampton business owners as they have a number of uses including storage, production, distribution and manufacturing. Plus, this space-creating-beauty is also a simple solution for Northampton businesses to achieve greater productivity.
It’s no secret that industrial space is expensive, but by installing a single or multi-tier mezzanine you can significantly increase your storage or production space without the fuss or hefty cost of moving premises – and when a mezzanine is used for warehouse or storage purposes, it doesn’t normally incur increased business rate charges.
In fact, if you rent your premises after your mezzanine is installed then it’s considered a rent-free space because the cost of your rent per square metre is significantly reduced.
The price of an industrial mezzanine installation is a one-time cost, but the exact amount differs from one project to the next as no two sites are the same, and customer requirements always differ too. Get in touch with Cubex Contracts today and we can arrange to visit your premises and access your requirements to provide you with a bespoke quote for your own industrial mezzanine.
As companies grow, whether that be through employee headcount or production equipment (or both!), the impacts that a lack of space has can be a big challenge to overcome for Northampton business owners. From day-to-day operations to health and safety regulations, a limited workspace comes with its frustrations, but not every business is aware of their own workspace potential and the time and money they could save with an industrial mezzanine floor installation. Here’s how an industrial mezzanine floor could benefit your business:
- Manufacturing: avoid the need to cram packaging and storage onto one level and streamline your operations to manufacture products safely and efficiently across different floors.
- Distribution: increase your operational workspace to absorb more products to, in turn, boost profits.
- Retail: a mezzanine floor offers a private space for customers to browse products and then liaise with your sales team away from the hustle and bustle of the shop floor.
Generally speaking, no formal planning permission is required to install an industrial mezzanine floor. And speaking of installation, a mezzanine doesn’t take long to erect either. In fact, depending on your business requirements, Cubex Contracts can install a mezzanine floor in just one day so you’ll be back to work in no time!
With clearly defined and designated areas for storage space, production and distribution, additional meeting rooms or customer-facing zones, your industrial workforce can fulfil day-to-day duties without encroaching on one another’s space – and you might even find that with another floor you’re able to increase employee headcount to further support your business’ growing return on investment (ROI) too.
Here at Cubex Contracts we’ve been installing quality industrial mezzanine floors in Northampton a variety of industries for over 25 years and in that time we’ve seen no end of uses and configurations – we’ve even added conveyor systems and lifts to access the additional levels.
From survey through to design, planning and building regulations to full installation, project management and handover, we manage the entire process. Our industrial mezzanine floor designers carry out a survey before submitting a proposal incorporating the essential features and all elements of building regulations including fire protection, disabled access and means of escape. We’ll also include a disruption audit as part of all of our proposals to ensure your business experiences minimum downtime during installation.
All industrial mezzanine structures are manufactured off-site, cutting down build time and therefore disruption onsite. You can expect a typical project to be completed within 5 – 6 weeks of order.
The price of an office or industrial mezzanine installation is a one-time cost. Our guide price for a mezzanine floor in a 100M² office (with stairs – remember to consider access requirements) would be around £200.00 per square metre. But if your office space is much bigger or if you’re looking for an industrial mezzanine installation with handrails for example, then there will be some price variation.
Why not try our Project Estimator to better determine the cost of your bespoke project? Or better yet, get in touch to arrange a site visit and we’ll provide you with a precise quote that will tick all of your space needs boxes.
It’s also worth noting that many companies prefer to spread the cost of their mezzanine rather than take a hit on the upfront capital cost. That’s why we work with a specialist leasing company to give our customers the flexibility of options. If you think you might be interested in a lease option, let us know and we can liaise with our chosen lease company at quotation stage.
