Case study – Granger Hertzog
An example is our work for Granger Hertzog, a company hiring furniture and props to the film industry. As a result of continued growth, particularly due to its online presence, the business had made the strategic decision to relocate to new and larger premises.
We had worked together before and Hi-Level Mezzanines was appointed main contractor for the whole project.
Key to success was mezzanine design that maximised use of the unit whilst also minimising obstruction for Granger Hertzog’s products, with as much open and productive space as possible so clients could browse the company’s wide collection of eclectic pieces from around the world.
The challenge was to provide a clean and simple multi-functional facility with integral space for Granger Hertzog’s logistics team to ensure operations ran smoothly and efficiently. Criteria were discussed and honed during many design meetings so we could execute the brief to the company’s exact requirements.
Full fit-out programme
The full fit-out programme included a two-tier mezzanine which would provide 16,000ft² of floor area per tier with a loading of 4.8kN/m². The mezzanines incorporated a central feature staircase and two fire escapes as well as one-hour fire protection.
As the main contractor, we were also responsible for full decoration of the ground and first floor. This included creating new ground-floor offices, toilets with full water supply, meeting room and a staff kitchen. Such areas had to be executed with partitioning, lighting and power/data cabling and a new ground-floor fire exit.
Over nine months we perfected the ideal design solution for the new showroom; provided a detailed layout which complied with all the relevant building regulations and would minimise any safety risks; carried out structural investigations to make sure the floor slab could support the column loads from the mezzanine floor; installed piling and a lift pit; and, to open more space between the showroom and office area, removed the full height partition wall on the existing first-floor level then reinstated it from the new second floor level to the underside of the roof.
We delivered a 6m2 ‘atrium’ for the main staircase tower in the centre of the show-room; created multiple rooms for staff; and maximised space for employees while improving the efficiency of Granger Hertzog’s operations.
The finished showroom captured Granger Hertzog’s vision for a modern open plan concept full of light and character. The larger premises provided ample space to display its extensive collection across three floor levels. Throughout the build, Hi-Level Mezzanines made weekly site visits and such regular communication resulted in both parties being extremely pleased with the finished look.
