Mezzanine Floors for Warehouses

Adding a new Mezzanine floor with offices on top to your warehouse, can increase your office floor space, without paying extra rent. You can easily create extra office space with a new steel mezzanine floor, by utilising the existing unused overhead space in your warehouse or factory. If you are currently only using the warehouse floor space, the space overhead could be used for new mezzanine offices, or for more storage space. After the new steel mezzanine floor is installed, in most cases you can still use your warehouse or factory for your normal industrial work activities, or for storage. 

DY Constructions Australia supply and install new mezzanine floors complete with all fixtures & fittings, adjustments to essential services including air conditioning, fire protection, and electrical. If you need new office space on top of the mezzanine floor, we can supply all the interior fitout works, including office partitions, joinery, office workstations, office furniture, operable walls, painting and new floorcoverings.

We offer a complimentary consultation at your warehouse by one of our experienced project managers, who will provide you with a proposal for your new mezzanine floor, which includes design, council approval and supplying all fixtures and fittings. Your mezzanine floor project will be completed on time and within budget, and to the high level of quality you expect.

Design of Mezzanine & Office Space

We custom design each new mezzanine floor to suit your warehouse or factory requirements, whether for adding new office space, or for extra storage.

  • At our complimentary site visit to your warehouse, we will discuss your specific needs, with the aim of finding the perfect mezzanine floor solution to match your budget, and timeframe.
  • Our project manager will discuss all relevant details of the project with you including the mezzanine floor design, including loading requirements, staircases, walkways, escape routes, and the spacing of columns required under the new mezzanine floor.
  • We will also discuss interior design, specifications, quality, staging, and any approvals that may be required. We’ll determine the number of offices, workstations, storage areas, meeting rooms, boardrooms, and amenities for staff and any additional requirements.
  • Many steel mezzanine floors are designed to accommodate office spaces on top to allow companies to use the ground floor space for storage, assembly, or manufacturing in an industrial warehouse.
  • Sometimes steel mezzanine floors can also be designed to have office space, or amenities such as kitchens or toilets below the floor as well.
  • Our structural engineer designs the floor so that it is built to required weight loadings to support appropriate loads, and have safety barriers to ensure the safety of workers.
  • Whether you want an office that overlooks your factory floor, or a private office in the corner of the warehouse, we custom design every mezzanine floor to suit your requirements.
  • After the details of the mezzanine floor fitout brief has been established, our interior designer will create a concept plan for the mezzanine floor to include positions of columns, staircases, sliding gates, rollover gates, offices, reception area, boardrooms, meeting rooms, interview rooms, kitchenette, lunchroom, toilets, training room, computer room, breakout area, and storage rooms.
  • Concept drawings for mezzanine floors will also show positions of partitions, doors, windows, workstations, office furniture, reception counter, office joinery, storage cupboards, feature walls, feature ceilings, floorcoverings, seating and chairs.

Mezzanine Office Floor Construction

The new steel mezzanine is an intermediate floor, and will be installed between the ground floor and roof of the warehouse.

  • Typically mezzanine floors with office space on top have steel columns, steel beams, purlins, and particleboard flooring. 

  • STAIRCASES: Access to mezzanine floors is usually via a new welded steel staircase with open risers, and steel Handrails or Balustrades.

  • HANDRAILS : New handrails will be installed to the exposed edges of the new mezzanine floor, unless new perimeter partitions are being installed. 

  • STEEL BEAMS: The size of the new steel beams depend on the spacings between columns. The beam sizes will be determined by our Structural Engineer. 

  • LOAD REQUIREMENTS: Steel mezzanine floor are built to match the load requirements of your particular project, and have a load rating which is measured in kPa. Generally 3kPa is for Office space, 4kPa for Storage Areas, 5kPa where floor is used for heavy loads. 

  • COLUMNS : The steel columns support the weight of the mezzanine floor: When there are fewer columns, there is an increase in the load requirements per column. 

  • BASE PLATES FOR COLUMNS : Fewer columns may require the addition of heavy duty base plates or footings to handle the extra load on each column. Column base plates in steel are bolted to the existing concrete floor to spread the weight of the load.

  • EXISTING WAREHOUSE FLOOR CAPACITY: The load bearing capacity of the concrete slab is important when constructing a new mezzanine floor. 

  • SCANNING OF FLOOR: Where a heavy duty floor is required, we get our structural engineer to scan the existing concert slab before works start. 

  • REINFORCING OF SLAB: If your warehouse concrete floor slab is less than 200mm thick, or the soil under the concrete is not stable enough, we can reinforce the concrete under the new columns. We do this by cutting out sections of the concrete slab, and replacing it with thicker concrete and steel reinforcement. 

  • FLOORING: Where purlins are at 450mm spacings, new flooring is generally particleboard which offers stability, especially when a mezzanine is being used for office space.

  • TIMING: Mezzanine floors are usually constructed within a few weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project. 

Benefits of Mezzanine Floors

New mezzanine floors are suitable for growing companies that need more space without having to relocate, some of the many benefits are.

  • Most warehouses in business parks have very high roofs, and often only the floor space is used. A new mezzanine floor maximises your existing “unused vertical space” in your warehouse.

  • Mezzanine floors are an easy way to create extra storage space in your warehouse.

  • Mezzanines can be used to create of additional space for your staff.

  • Mezzanine floor offices can improve work productivity in your business by connecting each of your departments to another with easy access.

  • Mezzanines are ideal for adding extra office space for workstations, offices meeting rooms, and amenities for office employees.

  • When companies grow and need more space, a new mezzanine floor can be cost effective solution in comparison to moving to new warehouse premises. 

  • Mezzanine floors can provide warehouses with an additional floor level, and allow for the ground floor to be used as normal for business operations.

  • Mezzanine floors can be customised so that some of the space can be for storage, some for assembly/manufacturing, or some for office space.

Fitting out Mezzanine Floors with Offices

Once the steel mezzanine floor has been installed, if required it can be fitted out to create office space on top, with new perimeter Partitions, suspended ceilings, new floorcoverings, workstations, joinery, electrical, data, plumbing, Fire Protection and Air Conditioning.

  • The interior layout of the new offices on top of the mezzanine floor can be optimised for a better workspace environment. 

  • Your mezzanine can be fitted out in an open space concept to create a sleek modern look in your office, or with traditional enclosed offices which offer more privacy.

  • Enclosed offices are ideal for businesses that have staff that need more privacy to stay focused on their work. 

  • Perimeter partitions are installed to enclose the mezzanine floor, these partitions can have windows along the edge of the floor. 

  • Suspended ceilings in either plasterboard or drop in tiles, are installed above the mezzanine floor, and thermal insulation on top of the ceiling is recommended where new air conditioning is being installed. 

  • New floorcoverings are installed on top of the mezzanine floor, in either carpet tiles, vinyl or laminate finish. 

  • The mezzanine office fit out can be completed with new office furniture, including workstations, storage cupboards, mobile pedestals, credenzas, meeting room tables, boardroom tables, built in joinery, shelving systems, whiteboards, pin boards, projection screens, break out area furniture, reception desks, chairs and office seating. 

  • New amenities such as breakout areas, toilets and kitchens can be added to the mezzanine floor offices, providing convenient facilities for staff.

  • As part of our complete mezzanine fit out service, we supply and install all essential services, including air conditioning, fire Protection, plumbing, electrical and data. 

  • View our Office Fitout Page for  more information about DY Constructions Australia Fitout services.

Sliding & Rollover Gates for Mezzanine Floors

If part of the mezzanine floor needs to be accessed for pallets by a forklift, we can supply either a sliding gates, or rollover gate.

  • To minimise the risk of falls when the gate is in an open position, a fall prevention device is recommended, such as a rollover type gate.

  • The roll over gate allows pallets to be moved to and from mezzanine floors safely. 

  • The gates design eliminates exposed edges, and can keep warehouse workers safe from the risk of falling. 

  • The roll over gate can be either manually operated, or electronically operated. 

  • The electronically operated rollover type gate allows the forklift driver when lifting pallets on to the mezzanine floor to stay seated in the forklift while offloading pallets on the mezzanine floor. 

  • The gate can be opened electronically by the forklift driver as he/she approaches the mezzanine floor. 

  • The forklift driver can close the gate electronically, after the pallet has been put on the mezzanine floor.

Extensions & Refurbs to Mezzanine Floors

If you need to increase the size of your existing mezzanine floor, we can extend it with similar materials, and we can usually match the construction style and colours of your existing mezzanine floor.

  • The existing mezzanine floor can be extended in length or width, and the extension can be tied into the existing mezzanine floor. 

  • The new steel floor can be connected to the existing structure at each mezzanine level. 

  • The mezzanine extension can also be an additional free standing mezzanine floor next to the existing floor. 

  • If the existing mezzanine floor has office space on top, we can fit-out the extension with ceilings and partitions and floor coverings to match your existing office space. 

  • If you already have a mezzanine floor that you are using for storage, and you want to convert it to office space, we can design and fit it out to suit your requirements.

Mezzanine Floor Relocations

If you relocating or leasing more warehouse space, we can organise it all for you including dismantling your existing mezzanine floor and relocating it in your new premises.

  • Often steel Mezzanine floors can be dismantled and relocated with little modification 
  • However if required, we can reconfigure your existing mezzanine floor to suit the layout of your new warehouse, by either extending it or altering it. 
  • Sometimes the staircases  and handrails need to be altered, or put in new positions to suit your new warehouse. 
  • If your existing mezzanine floor has office space on top, after we have relocated the mezzanine to the new warehouse,  we can fit it out with ceilings and partitions floorcoverings and furniture, so that you can use it for office space.
