Planning Permission and Mezzanine Floors
Typically, no formal permissions required for the erection of a mezzanine floor provided there are no local planning restrictions. There are however some circumstances when planning permission is required, such as when the mezzanine is used for office space or the mezzanine increases the floor area of a site. Hi-Level provides a turnkey service, working with you to interpret your requirements and provide the necessary guidance. We have in-house experts who will conduct a survey of your building prior to designing the floor which provides you with a detailed proposed layout and peace of mind throughout the project.
Building Regulations and Mezzanine Floors
Building Regulations are an essential part to the build and Hi-Level always takes full responsibility for ensuring that your mezzanine is designed in compliance with all the British Standards and necessary guidelines. We take into consideration a variety of factors to ensure our designs are compliant and use approved ancillaries such as staircases, handrails and toe plates.

- Building Regulations 2000
