Brewery Increases Production Capacity | Greenwich | Hi-Level Mezzanines

Production Floor For The Meantime Brewing Company

Meantime Brewing

Meantime Brewery was founded in 2002 in Greenwich, London. The company is now one of the UK’s largest craft brewers and still continues to make its beers in the same way, having built a state-of-the-art brewery in 2010.

The Project

Following exponential sales growth, Meantime Brewing needed to double its production, so they asked a Hi-Level distributor to investigate installing a mezzanine floor to increase capacity at their brewery.

The distributor, together with Hi-Level, consulted with Meantime Brewing to came up with an optimum design that took into account the unique requirements and challenges posed by the site.

The main challenge was the client’s programme for the refit of the brewery which involved relocation of the bottle and keg filling lines and the fit out for additional brewing tanks in an adjacent building. It also entailed the inclusion of a new sloped concrete and tiled floor to facilitate drainage of liquids into central drainage gullies.

As the fit out already had a tight program scheduled, which meant interruption to the client’s production for a period, the mezzanine build had to fit into key stages of the whole project.

This entailed initially building the mezzanine frame to enable the new concrete floor to be laid over the baseplates of the mezzanine (which needed to be sat on a level slab), then part of the frame was removed to allow access to install the large brewing tanks. This was achieved by designing sleeved removable mezzanine columns, leaving the lower mezzanine column sections in situ buried in the new slab.

Further key stages of the build entailed phased installation of the remaining mezzanine parts to fit in with the relocation of the production machinery.

The Results

The mezzanine floor provided Meantime Brewery with an additional 214 square metres storage space.

It was imperative that there were no delays that might hold up brewery production. Hi-Level and their distributor completed the project both within the strict deadline and within budget.

What our clients say

“Team BRIT took another major step forward by securing our own workshop, rather than paying companies to provide us with their services.  As we are growing so fast, we needed to plan for when we take on our next race car, which requires more workshop space.  This is where Hi-Level came to our rescue by offering their expertise and building the extra floor space we need.  We are totally chuffed with our new mezzanine addition to our garage! It looks amazing and has created so much extra floor space. We’re very thankful to Hi-Level who expertly installed this in a flash. Thank you very much – we have room to grow and to a bigger and better Team BRIT now!” Read about the project here
