Mezzanine floor FAQs:

If you’re still unsure about mezzanine floors, we’ve collected frequently asked questions to give more information.

What exactly is a mezzanine floor?

This is a common question, as many clients are familiar with the general concept of a mezzanine floor, but they’re not sure what it is. A mezzanine floor is its own structure within a building that effectively adds another storey to that building without having to rely on its structural components. Because of this, a mezzanine floor is free standing.

Is a mezzanine floor considered an additional storey?

This will depend on the exact set up of the mezzanine floor, how much space the mezzanine takes up, and more. Of course whether the mezzanine is considered an additional storey or not may affect planning permits. However, a mezzanine often can be designed in such a way that it’s not considered and additional storey in the building. We can help clients navigate planning requirements and advise accordingly.

Are planning permits required to build a mezzanine floor?

Typically, yes, planning permits are required to build a mezzanine floor. The exact permits required will depend on the design of the new mezzanine floor as well as local council regulations. Our services can include advising on and sourcing the correct permits from local councils and planning authorities.

How much does a mezzanine floor cost to build?

The cost to build a mezzanine floor for a business can vary depending on the size of the mezzanine, the layout of the mezzanine and the space it’s being built in, as well as the weight the mezzanine needs to bear. Unfortunately because of this, we’re unable to provide an estimate for the cost of a mezzanine floor without seeing the space. Feel free to contact us for a quote.

How much weight can a mezzanine floor hold?

This will depend on how the mezzanine is built both in terms of the support structure and the flooring. However, mezzanine floors can be built for heavy duty work, supporting similar weight to ground level. They can also be designed and engineered with pallet racking or shelving in mind, giving easy access to racking or shelving without actually supporting the weight itself.

How long does it take to build a mezzanine floor?

We aim to build a client’s new mezzanine floor quickly so that the disruption to their business is kept to a minimum. Many of the components for the new mezzanine can be constructed and fabricated off site. This means the actual construction of the mezzanine is simply connecting modular pieces quickly and efficiently when on site.

Can a mezzanine floor be removed or relocated once it’s built?

Yes, since a mezzanine isn’t part of the actual structure of a building, it can be relocated to a new warehouse or simply removed as part of an end of lease make good. This means that a mezzanine is a great option to add extra floor or office space to a building without drastically changing the building itself.
