Office Mezzanine Floors
Create valuable space for your business to grow… without the hassle of relocating!
As business requirements change, so can your premises
A growing business is really exciting, but business owners don’t always want to spend their hard-earned cash on a new office building. Instead, they would much rather re-direct their cash flow to other departments. Does this sound familiar?
When it comes to finding a savvy way to increase your commercial space, installing a new mezzanine within your office is far more cost effective compared to relocating or expansion. You can double (if not triple) your existing operational space while saving yourself money, time and hassle.
If your office needs are changing and you’d like to discuss how a mezzanine floor could work for you, get in touch with Cubex today! Or for a guide on price for your commercial mezzanine installation, try our Project Estimator.
What is an office mezzanine?
An office mezzanine is a free-standing steel structure that helps businesses utilise the un-used space above their heads by creating an additional area to work from.
They can be designed and installed to extend over the whole of your main floor or, depending on your requirements and the structure of the building, just part of it. Think of it as a ‘‘floor between floors.’’
You also might like to know that a mezzanine floor is a rent-free space because it’s not part of the structure of the building, meaning the cost per square metre is therefore significantly reduced… bonus!
Psst! If you’re worried about timing then let us put your mind at ease; A typical office mezzanine installation can be completed within 5 – 6 weeks of order. Plus, depending on the size of your mezzanine and your business requirements, we could install your office mezzanine in just one day (we’ve done it before and we can do it again!). So you’ll be back to work in no time! Much sooner in fact than if you were to relocate (that could take months).
Where can I have a mezzanine floor?
Many commercial buildings are designed with a headroom height 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, creating valuable space for your business to grow.
With practically no restrictions on their shape or dimensions, office mezzanines have highly versatile structures and a variety of uses. Plus, they’re also extremely stable, durable and resilient. It’s no wonder they’re a common choice for business owners looking to accommodate headcount growth, improve business productivity or house new equipment and supplies.

Understanding your precise needs is key
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.

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.

“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.”
