If you’re beginning to outgrow your office space and considering a move then hang on a second ….
Relocating can be costly, time-consuming, and challenging in logistic terms. There are a whole heap of things to consider including overheads and new furniture to downtime while you’re in the throes of moving. A mezzanine office floor could be a better alternative. You may not have considered installing a mezzanine floor into your existing office space, but there are several benefits to be had. Let’s jump in and take a look.
The most obvious benefit is the extra space that will be created. Whether you’re in need of more space in which to work, additional meeting rooms, or some extra storage space, an office mezzanine will provide you with the extra floor space to do with what you will. It’s a great option for buildings with high ceilings since it really does maximise unused space.
Provides a new area
Sometimes it’s not just about having extra space but more about the added dimension they can bring to your office. They can be used to separate out departments or even for a staff chill out space. The great thing is mezzanines can be fitted out with the same features as any office space, ie carpets, décor, and plugs making them a very versatile option.
Mezzanine floors are quick and easy to install which makes them a cost-effective way of increasing your office footprint. Unlike relocating, there’s no relocation fees and no downtime. Your new office space can be ready to use in no time at all, helping to keep costs down and doing away with the need to move.
Mezzanine floors really are hassle-free because of the way that they’re constructed. Unlike having an office extension a mezzanine is quick to install and provides additional space in a cost-effective manner. It’s very rare that any planning permission is required, which saves so much hassle. If you rent your office space, however, you will need to check with your landlord that you can make this change to the existing floor space and, depending on what it’s to be used for, there could be building regulations to consider.
Pleasing to the eye
While offering up more space, mezzanine floors also look great. You can choose one that matches or complements your space perfectly with a polished or exposed finish and/or a refined style. You can have windows and soundproof walls or a spacious open plan design. It’s entirely up to you.
Since mezzanine floors aren’t built into the structure of the building they can be dismantled and moved, when necessary. So should the time come to relocate, you can pack up your mezzanine and take it with you!
