WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A WAREHOUSE MEZZANINE?
The benefits of installing a mezzanine floor within a warehouse are fantastic. As they allow you to think about your building by its cubic capacity rather than by its general ground floor footprint, so it opens up many benefits.
This means you may not actually require the size of building you first thought, which in turn brings its own benefits (reduced rates/rent/bills etc). It also allows you to think of expansion, so if you are worried about taking on a building that is too large and putting your business at risk by stretching your budget, you can find a healthy compromise knowing that in the future you can increase storage, office or production space by moving up.
Depending on its use, a mezzanine floor in a warehouse could be exempt from rates, again giving you more space at a cheaper cost. The other advantage is it enables you to keep your ground floor clear for the important stuff like manufacturing or production. By keeping stock items (or your office space) in the air, it will allow you to better plan your ‘flow’ within the warehouse, in turn increasing productivity.
