A head for heights…

Many commercial premises have unused headroom which is inefficient. Introducing a mezzanine floor can transform this vacant space into a productive area, allowing an organisation to expand within it’s existing premises without incurring additional business rates, potentially doubling your area for a one off cost.

Mezzanine floors are one of the most cost effective methods that a company can choose when extra space is required.  Whether it’s additional office space, storage or even warehousing you require they can be the ideal solution.

Although, it’s not just commercial and industrial premises that can benefit from installing a mezzanineSN9A8154_OSS floor, schools and colleges can also take advantage of unused head room, as St George’s Academy in Blackpool realised…

Working closely with the architect and client, we were recently appointed to design and furnish the space which was once the school gym. The challenge was to design a space that would not only house the school’s library, but also provide flexibility of use for individual and/or group study by the teachers and students along with providing a place that could be used by the wider community for informal meeting and other events.

At Whitespace we can supply and install a custom designed mezzanine floor to suit your exact needs and budget with minimal disruption.  They are versatile and can be integrated into all types of buildings. All installations require Building Regulation Approval; we can liaise with Building Control to obtain approval on your behalf.

With pupil numbers increasing and budgets getting tighter, this could be the perfect way to create space for additional school classrooms, new staff offices and/or the school library.  Whatever the requirement, it pays to look at all the options, ideally with a company with extensive experience of school interior design in the education sector.
