A branch of the charity Kart Force, Team BRIT inspires people with disabilities, PTSD and mental health issues by demonstrating what can be achieved through motor-sport. Team BRIT aims to be the first ever all-disabled team to take part in the world famous Le Mans 24hr endurance race.
The team uses world-leading hand control technology to allow its disabled drivers to compete equally with able-bodied drivers. It aims to revolutionise the motor-sport industry and to show injured military personnel & disabled people that they can achieve what they never thought possible.
As Team BRIT grow and undertake more exciting challenges, they were beginning to reach their site’s capacity and wanted to utilise their vertical space. Hi- Level were approached and we were delighted to help optimise their current workshop with a mezzanine area for additional storage.
Team BRIT required a mezzanine to be seamlessly integrated in their current workshop. The new floor space had to enable shelving and the storage of various car parts.
The final requirements of the project were detailed as follows:
- 12.3m x 6.6.m Mezzanine Floor Area
- Clear Ground Floor Staircase Access
- High Point Loads
The Solution and Result
The mezzanine extension was a successful one-day installation, causing minimal disruption to Team BRIT. The flooring consisted of our quality particle board, a versatile decking suitable for most storage applications. This was complemented by a powder coated staircase for a highly durable, aesthetic finish and equipped with handrails for full functional use in the workshop.
By working closely with our client in the details and specifications of the design, we were able to deliver the perfect solution in doubling their floor space and providing them operational access on both the ground floor and the mezzanine.We ensured the installation was completed securely as Team BRIT carried out further refurbishment in their workshop.
We were pleased to have provided a mezzanine floor to the complete satisfaction of Team BRIT and fulfil all their specifications.
Dave Player, Team BRIT CEO & Founder Comments:
“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!”
