Automation Mezzanine Floor For Next Retail Distribution Centre | Hi-Level Mezzanines


Automation Mezzanine Floor For Next Retail Distribution Centre

The Client

Next is one of the UK’s best known fashion retailers. They were converting a warehouse into a new distribution centre at Wath Upon Dearne, near Rotherham.

The Project

Next contracted with one of Hi-Levels distributors, who subsequently brought supplier Hi-Level Mezzanines on board. The distributor acted as the interface with the client, overseeing the complete design coordination process, while Hi-Level provided the mezzanine design and carried out the installation.

The project included a two-tier, 24,000²m mezzanine floor capable of bearing a load of 6kN/m² to support a specialist conveyor belt sortation system that transports goods around the warehouse in preparation for dispatch to stores and mail order customers.

The sortation system was installed above the mezzanine floor on all three levels, while cable trays from the external electricity supply were channelled under the floor to feed specific areas. Both requirements necessitated the use of additional joists at key sections of the floor and specialist knowledge.

The mezzanine design comprised fire protection, including staircase enclosures – The images show the scale of this floor!

What our clients say

“Hi-level were appointed to carry out a single story extension within a live warehouse environment. The project was delivered on time and to a high standard throughout. This was our first project with Hi-level and we would not hesitate using them again as their attitude from tendering the project through to completing the works was second to none. Thank you to everyone involved”
