Industrial Mezzanines Rugby
An industrial mezzanine can virtually double (if not triple) your workspace!
Making space for business to grow
A mezzanine floor is an additional level of flooring installed in a building that covers part (typically) or all of the main floor. Here at Cubex Contracts we love a commercial mezzanine installation because they’re a great way to create additional workspace without the fuss of relocating to a new premises, or extending your existing building. Commercial mezzanine floor installations can accommodate a variety of requirements within different business industries and sectors in and around Rugby.
Industrial mezzanines are incredibly popular among Rugby business owners because they have a number of uses including storage, production, distribution and manufacturing. Plus, the space-creating-beauties that mezzanines are, can also be a simple solution for Rugby business owners looking to achieve greater productivity within their business as with an increase in space comes the ability to complete more tasks in less time. Win, win… right?
Industrial Mezzanine Floor Installations Rugby
Industrial mezzanines floors Rugby can be designed and installed to withstand the weight of heavy machinery; to do this, the weight load of a mezzanine floor is worked out on a kilonewton per square metre basis (kN/m2).
Rugby business owners often ask us for advice on the weight loading of their bespoke mezzanine floor, but it depends entirely on the use of the mezzanine. As a general rule of thumb, the following weight loadings are recommended:
- 3.5kN/m2 – office use
- 4.8kN/m2 – light storage
- 7.2kN/m2 – medium storage
- 9.6kN/m2 – heavy storage
For a busy industrial warehouse in Rugby, Cubex Contracts recommend a loading specification of 9.6kN/m2 for a mezzanine, helping to increase operational space of your workforce, equipment and heavy machinery too.
Industrial Mezzanine Floors Rugby
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. From day-to-day operations to health and safety regulations, a limited workspace brings 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!
Industrial Mezzanine Floor Specialists Rugby
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.
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)… doesn’t that sound good?
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.
