Case Study: Hyundai Logistics UK Ltd
Hyundai Logistics UK Ltd contacted Mezz Floors UK when they decided to move to a new premises. Working closely with their logistics manager, our design team produced plans for a mezzanine floor that would suit the day-to-day running of their business.
As the mezzanine floor measured more than 10 meters in each direction, we had to provide a one hour fire rating to the underside of the mezzanine. This fire rating was achieved by installing a suspended ceiling with fascia’s and column cases.
The client said that they chose Mezz Floors UK for a number of reasons: (1) Mezz Floors UK’s specialised design team, which was always on-hand to answer questions and resolve any space and design issues; (2) the specialised site manager who was always available for progress reports and able to answer any concerns the client might have; and (3) Mezz Floors UK were able to manufacture and install a mezzanine floor within a short time frame.
Hyundai Logistics required two staircases for access to the mezzanine floor; each were specially designed and bespoke to fit onsite. For instance, one staircase had to be designed to avoid an existing boiler and the mezzanine required a specially manufactured space saving pallet gate for easy loading and unloading. To finish off the mezzanine floor, a handrail was fitted to all open edges for aesthetic and safety reasons. Hyundai logistics were supplied with the mezzanine floor, two staircases, pallet gate, and handrails, which was installed in less than three days – far quicker than the client had expected. Furthermore, we arrived on site in just over three weeks after the order was first placed. The client added having a single point of contact helped to keep information flowing, while the site manager also made sure the job ran smoothly and each deadline was achieved on time and to a high standard.
Overall, the main concern of the client was that we installed a well manufactured, safe mezzanine floor in as short a time as possible. Mezz Floors UK managed to go from designing, to manufacturing and finally to installing the entire project in just over three weeks, whilst the client’s deadline was within six weeks.
