Logistics Distribution Centre Mezzanine Floor With Magrock

The Client & Challenge

Building contractor Magrock invited Hi-Level to tender for this particular floor after being dissatisfied with a previous mezzanine floor supplier, who failed to meet their requirements. The end client, Clipper Logistics are a UK leading logistics solutions company.

The Criteria

Clipper Logistics required the mezzanine floor within a new distribution centre for one of their clients.

The final requirements of the project were detailed as follows:

  • Mezzanine Floor – 34m x 12m
  • Featuring 1 extra width general access staircase and 1 galvanised utility escape staircase
  • Side mounted handrail painted to the clients specification
  • Chamfered and countersunk fixing in base plates

The Solution & Result 

Despite delivery and installation being on a tight timescale, the build program was completed over a period of 9 days, finishing in December 2017.

“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” David Brewer, Construction Director – Magrock

How Mezzanine Floors Can Enhance Warehousing Space

Mezzanine flooring can boost productivity in most businesses, within the warehousing sector the additional space created from the floor allows room for more stock and storage, helping business respond to demand quickly and efficiently. A mezzanine floor is also much cheaper and a less inconvenient alternative to relocating or building new premises.

Mezzanine floors are free standing raised platforms that are supported by structural steel columns, it’s also important to note that our floors are not limited to one tier and can be several stories high depending on building height and floor strength. Our floors can also hold large loads supporting bespoke offices, machinery and automation equipment making them ideal for across a number of industries.

Hi-Level have installed floors in some of the largest warehousing and distribution centres in the UK – why not take a look at our previous case studies here.

To support our floors Hi-Level offers onsite surveys, design and detailed CAD drawings, building regulations approval, manufacture and installation.

Storage Floor For Popular Gift and Homeware Brand

The Challenge

We came together with STS Storage to construct large floor for London based gift and homeware brand.

The Criteria

After growth in sales the client was keen to increase their storage capacity and decided a mezzanine floor would be the most practical solution for their new warehouse.

The Solution

  • To build a mezzanine floor of 61m x 18.5 m x 3.35 m.
  • Three staircases allow for minimum congestion.
  • To include underside fire protection.
  • Link the new floor to the existing 1st floor office area.
  • Extra ancillaries include handrail and pallet gates.

The Result

In April 2016 the project was wrapped up in under 3 weeks during a ‘fast track’ installation process, and as you can see from the images we are very pleased with the end result!

Introducing iQD

We were absolutely thrilled at IMHX 2016, to share the latest advance in Mezzanine Floor Estimation and Customer interaction…. iQD.

Our technology specialists, who are unique in our industry, have engineered an application which can best be explained as …”one of a kind”.

Sales Executives/Distributors will now control the estimation and selling process in “real time”, and early feedback confirms that this will fast become an essential selling aid.

Hi-Level’s key distributors will soon be able to personalize their own quotations and render a 3D visualization at end user premises, an industry first.

iQD is a natural progression from QD4 (and QD3 before), giving customers the most efficient use of materials to provide the most economic mezzanine floor cost in the market and unlike others we have been doing this for a quarter of a century!

iQD is fuss free and can create a detailed mock-up for a mezzanine floor that would otherwise take days to create in a drawing format. Customers can simply input their requirements and dimensions of the proposed floor by following our step by step instructions – it really is as simple as that!

For questions regarding iQD please contact iqd-support@hi-level.co.uk

The application will become available to select customers Autumn 2016.
