The future is never certain when it comes to money and business, so companies all over the UK are always looking for ways to save on expenditure without it having a negative impact on everyday operations.
This is why we got into this business, we want to help businesses to expand their output potential in the most efficient and cheap way possible. We are strong believers in the money saving powers of mezzanine flooring. Mezzanine flooring systems offer a number of useful ways to cut down on your costs, especially if you are on the verge of outgrowing your current premises.
More Space; Less Cost
A pretty simple equation, but a powerful one, nonetheless. The most common reason for businesses to source a mezzanine floor is to get more space out of their existing setup. If there isn’t enough space to efficiently complete work-based tasks, something, somewhere down the line is probably going to go wrong. Too many people and too much equipment in too small a place will potentially end up costing a company too much money.
If said company has enough overhead room to install a mezzanine, the working area has the potential to be doubled simply by building above. Depending on the size of the space, you could even have more than one floor installed. Of course this process isn’t free but compared to the alternatives, is much cheaper.
As well as being a huge hassle, relocating to bigger premises is likely to incur all manner of charges, including increased rent and council tax, removal services, estate agent and solicitor fees. Building an extension is also likely to cost more than installing a mezzanine floor, as well as being far more hassle to carry out. A new floor usually has just one price tag attached for all aspects of creation and installation. There’s no catch and no unexpected invoice further down the line.
Reducing the amount of downtime during any transition period is critical, particularly if your business depends on every penny to stay afloat. In many cases, relocation can end up spanning days or even weeks and months if the ideal building cannot be found immediately. This wasted time can have a large impact on your productivity and could end up costing you a lot, in terms of missed sales.
If you want to build an extension onto your existing building, then you’re going to require planning permission from the local council. This process can often take a long time – you have to argue your case – and often it will be rejected, meaning that you wasted a lot of time and effort. Installing a floor requires no planning permission, because it won’t extend the area that your building occupies.
The time taken to install install mezzanine flooring systems is a significant reduction on a typical move or extension. Our team have all the best training and years of experience, so they’re experts on doing jobs quickly, to a high standard. A floor on a clear site can be erected at 60m² per day, meaning most projects are completed in next to no time, allowing you to carry on pulling in that all important capital.
If your company relies on returning business, retention is a necessity; moving away may result in disengaging with local and loyal clients and customers. With no guarantee of custom in your new location, you may be forced to spend a fair bit of money on exploring new advertising and marketing strategies.
With a mezzanine floor, your presence within the communities and sectors you serve can be consistent, meaning you will only have to carry on doing exactly what you’re already doing, with no additional costs.
Finding the right premises with the perfect facilities and functionality to serve intended purposes can be a little tricky. Different environments, such as offices and warehouses, require very different setups.
With a mezzanine floor, you’ll have a use in mind for it already, so you can then get it built to specification by our team of expert floor installers. You’re very unlikely to find an existing building that fits your needs this perfectly.
The ability to implement various types of infrastructure is one the key benefits of mezzanine flooring systems. Lighting, broadband and telephone lines can be accommodated, meaning office, retail, manufacturing and warehouse space can be completed without having to go through the hassle and outlay that can come along with installing new components in buildings.
More Time on Your Hands
Unfortunately, mezzanines can’t add more time to the day, but they can help to improve efficiency and productivity, which in turn can save you precious time. With sufficient space for staff to go about their duties, the waiting time for resources and equipment can be slashed, giving back previously lost profit-generating minutes and hours.
