Mezzanine For UK's Largest Freight Forwarder | Hi-Level

Mezzanine Floor for the UK’s Largest Independent Freight Forwarder


The Challenge

To supply, deliver and install a single tier mezzanine floor, fire protection and staircase enclosures in a busy warehouse, the client needed minimal disruption and required the time frame to be met with no compromises.

The Criteria

Hi-Level Mezzanines and the distributor went through a rigorous tender process for the design, supply and installation of a 31,000 square foot mezzanine floor with a load capacity of 6.0kN/m2 UDL. The brief set out by Davies Turner was for the full turnkey of designing a mezzanine floor, full 1 hour fire protection, lighting, smoke detection and stair enclosures .

With steel spans of 9,750mm x 7,800mm and a finished floor height of 4,150mm, this was not going to be a straight forward project. On inspection it was noted that the floor slab was incapable of taking the imposed floor loading. After carrying out a Geo Technical Investigation every column required piling, Hi-Level Mezzanines and their distributor were tasked with designing the piles and pile caps to take the imposed load of the mezzanine floor.

The Solution

Hi-Level were chosen by their distributor based on previous experience and a good working relationship -”Hi Level worked closely with me on getting the design right to make sure that when the floor arrived on site everything fitted perfectly. Our project manager was very professional throughout the installation and helped by going the extra mile to make sure the project was handed over earlier than the client anticipated.” said the Sales Director

The Result

The mezzanine floor was completed in September 2012 after 4 weeks onsite for the mezzanine floor and 3 weeks for the fire rating. The project was completed on time and within budget. The Hi-Level Project Manager said ‘This was a large turn key project which had phased hand over deadlines, so this meant we needed to work efficiently to meet the installation deadlines. We are pleased to say that the client was extremely satisfied with the end result especially as we were able to complete the job in budget and provide an earlier handover time which meant there was no disruption to them”.

Director of Davies Turner & Co Ltd said “Davies Turner have been provided with a perfect solution to our additional floor space requirements delivered on time, on budget and with minimal disruption for such a large mezzanine project in a busy warehouse. Our time frame was absolutely critical”.
