Office Mezzanine Floors – making space for business to grow!
Why move if you don’t have to? An Office Mezzanine creates valuable additional space without incurring the costs of moving premises or extending your building… why move if you don’t have to?
Making space for business to grow
As your business grows you may want to re-direct your cash flow to other departments rather than a new office building. Installing a mezzanine is much more cost-effective compared to re-locating – in fact, a mezzanine floor is a rent-free space because it’s not part of the structure of the building and therefore the cost per square metre is significantly reduced.
Many commercial buildings are designed with headroom of 6m or more. Apart from being expensive in terms of heating and cooling, this un-productive space can be used to erect a mezzanine floor to create a useful space with a variety of uses, including:
- storage areas
- meeting rooms
- breakout areas
- additional offices

“Cubex dismantled our existing mezzanine floor and goods lift in 3 days. They were then able to consult with us on the best location for the floor to be rebuilt within our new premises with only minor alterations to still meet our business needs. The build went up in 3 days and we have been really happy with the result. It was done with minimal disruption and with a tight lead time. Cubex were also able to save most of the fire rated ceiling tiles and column cases, as well as the lighting under the floor, all of which were reinstated and prevented us from having to spend more money on fire rating the mezzanine to obtain building regulations in its new situ. The whole move was conducted with minimal fuss, expense and disruption to our business.”

By adding the perfect finishing touches to your office mezzanine floor, it will look like it has always been a part of the building. Here are some of the additional services we can provide as a part of the mezzanine installation process:
- Office partitioning, whether its sleak modern glass or a more traditional stud wall can offer privacy and quiet areas for staff to work.
- Suspended ceilings not only cover up the industrial mezzanine structure, but give a clean and finished look while meeting all fire rating regulations.
- Flooring is not only an aesthetic consideration, but a practical one too. From carpets to vinyl and hardwood, we have a solution for all tastes, needs and budgets.
- Office furniture is as key to the overall space plan as the physical structure of the building. From soft seating to breakout areas, desks and comfortable chairs, we benefit from having both the expertise and the choice available.
Frequently Asked Questions About Office Mezzanine Flooring
We create additional floor space for clients in commercial offices who once feared they had reached their limit on space. A mezzanine floor can easily provide extra space to support the day-to-day operations of your business, making space for your business to grow without the hassle of moving premises.
What is a mezzanine floor?
A mezzanine floor is an additional level installed in a building to provide more space, but it does not extend over the whole of the main floor, just part of it.
How beneficial could a mezzanine floor really be?
Flexible structure – check! Cost effective – check! Maximise space – check! By installing a mezzanine floor you can potential double (or triple!) your existing workspace without having to buy or rent new/additional premises. What could your business achieve with that extra space?
Will our new mezzanine require Building Regulation Approval?
Yes in all cases, but once appointed Cubex Contracts will administer the building regulation application on your behalf.
Can you erect partitions on a Mezzanine Floor?
Yes – an office mezzanine floor design can include partitions, suspended ceilings, floor coverings, heating, lighting and mechanical systems as well as office furniture. It will also include appropriate methods to access the mezzanine level that link into your existing office infrastructure such as a staircase.
How long does it take to install mezzanine level flooring?
We will need to visit your premises prior to installing a mezzanine floor to asses your needs and carry out a site survey to check specifications and measurements. Depending on the number of mezzanine floor levels and the overall floor space, your office mezzanine could be installed in just one day – you’ll be back to work in no time!
Can you obtain finance for a mezzanine floor?
Yes. Mezzanine loans are typically available to established companies looking to expand rather than start-ups looking for early-phase financing. This type of finance is typically more cost effective than a standard loan for example as it used a combination of debt and equity financing. Cubex Contracts works with a mezzanine finance expert and we can refer you to them if this is something you wanted to consider.
Is there a weight restriction on an office mezzanine floor?
Where can I have a mezzanine floor?
You can install a mezzanine floor in any office building as long as the ceilings are high enough (so you can utilise any unused space that’s above you.
How much does it cost to install an office mezzanine floor?
The price of an office mezzanine installation differs from one project to the next; no two sites are the same. A mezzanine consists of the frame and the floor itself. Depending on the structure then needs additions such as staircases, railings, gates, partitioning, etc. Therefore the materials needed and contractors used will be different from job to job.

Our Case Studies
Larsson wanted to maximise their new space as much as possible in order to increase their stock levels and ultimately enable them to fulfil orders for their customers quicker. In line with a mezzanine floor they were also investigating workflow efficiencies with having their high turnover goods stored on the ground floor.
After approaching several companies, Larsson appointed Cubex Contracts because they wanted a contractor who could manage the whole project from start to finish, including the building regulation procedures and install the necessary fire protection.
