- Mez+za+nine® floors are designed to
meet specific needs. Each Mez+za+nine®
utilises the same general principles and components,
but is tailored to suit the clients specification by
our Applications Engineers. The use to which the
space both over and below the Mez+za+nine®
is to be put will affect the load capacity, beam sizes
and spacing, column layouts, decking materials and
finishes etc. That need to be specified.
- Initially, a brief is often prepared on the basis
of a meeting and site survey at the clients premises;
sometimes clients Architects, Structural Engineers or
other consultants will provide drawings and a
brief. On the basis of the client or consultants
brief suggestions will be made for improvements or
enhancements to enable the design to be fine tuned to
satisfy the clients exact needs.
- At this stage of
Mez+za+nine® design, UK Building
Regulations or equivalent standards overseas are taken
into account to ensure that means of escape and
structural fire protection are adequately addressed.
- Wherever possible proposals will be discussed with
the local authority or certifying organisation at this
stage to ensure any aspects that are open to

- Concrete floor investigation can be undertaken
where necessary, to ensure that baseplates are designed
to adequately distribute loads through the slab,
hardcore and subsoil, or that provision is made for
- Having isolated and quantified potentially variable
costs, a fixed price quotation can be prepared on the
basis of the clients final specification, complete with
CAD design drawings.
- Following order placement full Mez+za+nine
® floor CAD manufacturing drawings can be
e-mailed to clients, consultants and contractors to
ensure each project is fully coordinated.
- Upon completion of each project, any on site
modifications, additions or alterations are noted, as
built drawings are prepared and submitted for inclusion
in the project file.
