Why Mezzanine Flooring Beats Moving Premises

As your business grows, there will eventually come a time when you need more space. The obvious answer would be to move to larger premises, but could a mezzanine floor be the answer?

The first obstacle for both these options is cost. If your business is already doing well and turning a profit, it makes sense to consider the most cost-effective solution when investing in something as important as your premises.

Mezzanine floors do remarkably well in this area, as the cost you incur covers the physical price of the unit, the installation and design. The outlay for moving premises carries significant costs including increased rent as well as potential council tax, legal fees and removal costs – all of which can vary dramatically for every instance.

The second area to consider is the amount of space – how much do you need? What will you use it for? Is there potential for further growth?

A building obviously comes with set boundaries which ultimately means what you see is what you get, and once that space has been utilised, that’s it. There may be the option to extend the building outwards, but this would come at great cost and potentially incur business downtime.

A mezzanine floor system gives complete flexibility, allowing you to control how much space you’d like to add – so long as there is sufficient headroom.

The last point to bear in mind is time. Getting a speedy turnaround for any change to your business premises is crucial in minimising losses and disruption to you and your workforce. Searching for new premises that tick all the boxes could take a serious amount of time – the perfect combination of location, size and setup is unlikely to be right on your doorstep.

Designing and installing your own bespoke mezzanine floor is the perfect way of getting additional space into premises quickly. Depending on the size of the new floor, mezzanines can be installed in anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Even the very large projects will usually take no longer than a month.
