out how much a new Mezzanine Floor
It’s no secret that, in today’s 24/7 on-demand economy, productivity and efficiency matter more than ever.
Major corporations like Amazon have changed customers’ expectations when it comes to availability and delivery, putting a whole new level of pressure on businesses to get stock off the shelves and into customers homes as quickly as possible.
Still, while this increase in demand may provide businesses with a welcome boost to their bottom line, it leaves those in charge of managing the factory or warehouse with a formidable challenge:
Creating an increase in productivity that is sustainable in the long-term.
For some businesses, the answer to meeting this challenge is to consider warehouse automation tools, only to find that there simply isn’t the space or infrastructure to support such technology.
It’s for this reason -and many others- that investing in quality mezzanine flooring can help even the most space-deprived businesses to create a long-term transformation of their warehouse efficiency.
Adding a mezzanine floor is a fast, affordable way to open up a whole new level of warehouse or factory.
Taking into consideration both your long-term goals and immediate requirements, these solid, durable flooring solutions are custom made by a team of professionals to fit your space and can serve a variety of functions.
Creating this additional level in your building not only creates additional storage space, but also allows businesses to hire more staff and create additional production lines to meet customer demands, all without overcrowding or falling foul of health and safety regulations.
Those may be the most obvious benefits of installing a mezzanine floor, but they’re far from the only ones.
Again, technology such as chutes, conveyors, automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) and other warehouse automation tools can make a dramatic difference to your supply chain, helping you to optimise and streamline your entire operation.
Yet in smaller warehouses or those that are running at maximum capacity, there simply isn’t the space to install such tools.
Built from solid, highly durable materials, quality mezzanine flooring can support the weight of even the largest of automation tools, enabling you to improve automation upstairs while keeping your ground floor free for manual tasks or time-sensitive processes.
Rather than keeping them in separate buildings, your business may find it more cost-effective to have back-office operations carried out in the same venue that your warehouse staff operate.
Yet let’s be honest, having both aspects of your business on the same floor can sometimes be counter-productive.
Keep them too close together, and the excess noise of your machinery or even just that of general warehouse chatter can make it harder for your desk-bound employees to truly focus on the task at hand.
That’s to say nothing of the constant interruptions that can be such a distracting part of life in an open-plan office environment.
When you add a mezzanine floor, you can build additional offices so that key back-office personnel can have their own dedicated, quiet space in which to work.
A simple move like this can go a long way in transforming your productivity and even improving employee well-being.
It’s not uncommon for businesses hit with a sudden surge in demand to throw normal protocol right out of the window.
Whether it’s pressure from the top of the corporate hierarchy or simply an increase in sales, the pressure to meet targets can soon see your workspaces cluttered with stock and staff crammed into small spaces.
This can significantly limit your team’s ability to work effectively, restricting their mobility and blocking essential machinery like forklift trucks from getting where they need to be.
A solid mezzanine floor allows you to keep storage and work areas separate, providing staff with all the space they need to work at their best while still ensuring that your valuable stock is stored safely.
Looking for a simple, effective way to optimise your supply chain and create a long-term improvement in warehouse productivity?

Plastimo UK Limited
We are delighted with the finished product. The space has been turned into an exceptional working environment, which will serve us well for years to come
We were delighted with the service from Spaceway.
The project was designed to meet our specific requirements which included fitting in 20 more additional workstations using the existing space. The design works well and has met our expectations fully, we will continue to use Spaceway, they do a good job.
The office fit out is superbly finished to the highest standards and beyond our expectations.
Another project well done by Spaceway. As before, we're very pleased with everything from concept through to completion.
“I was so happy I did not get bothered throughout the extensive works and that a strict timetable was completed flawlessly. Fantastic experience all round.”
We're very impressed with the Spaceway team and the whole project was installed without fault. We are looking forward to working with the team again.
Our project was finished on time and to budget in what was a very short timescale, which is a credit to the team at Spaceway!
The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.
Spaceway worked with us to create the perfect environment for our staff. The completed project was fantastic and utilised the space to provide practical, modern and attractive working surroundings.
It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.
Thank you to Spaceway for the improvements that have been made to move Bodywise forward. You've done a very good job and we look forward to working with you again.
