How Can Mezzanines Increase Your Space?

Welcome to Mezz One, the pioneers in mezzanine design and installation. Have you ever looked up at a high ceiling and wondered if that extra vertical space could be better utilised? That’s where a mezzanine comes in. This article will unravel the concept of mezzanines and their role in revolutionising space optimisation.

Understanding Mezzanines

A mezzanine is an intermediate floor partially open to the double-height ceiling space of the room below, effectively creating an additional level between the existing floors. Historically, mezzanines have been used in theatres and grand houses, but today, they are clever solutions in various settings, from warehouses to modern apartments.

There are several types of mezzanines: freestanding units are versatile and widely used in industrial and commercial spaces; structural mezzanines, integrated into the building’s architecture, are common in residential projects; and rack-supported mezzanines are perfect for storage in retail environments.

The Benefits of Installing a Mezzanine

Space Optimisation

The most significant advantage of a mezzanine is its ability to maximise unused vertical space. By doing so, it effectively doubles or even triples the usable area without the need for relocation or expensive extensions. Many of our clients choose to use their mezzanines for extra office space, stunning showrooms or even just for extra storage!


Comparing the costs of moving or building expansions with installing a mezzanine, the latter often emerges as a more economical solution. It’s an investment that pays off by increasing your space and, subsequently, your operational capacity.


Mezzanines are incredibly adaptable. From adding extra storage space in a warehouse to creating new office areas or showrooms, the possibilities are endless. At Mezz One, we have transformed numerous spaces – a recent project involved installing a mezzanine in a retail store, effectively expanding the display area and enhancing customer experience. You can even opt to take your mezzanine with you when you move to a new space – and our team will be happy to help support this.

Mezzanine Design Considerations

Tailored to Client Needs

Each Mezz One mezzanine project starts with understanding our client’s specific needs. Whether it’s a sleek office space or a robust industrial platform, our designs are customised to fit both purpose and space.

Safety and Compliance

Adhering to building codes and maintaining high safety standards is non-negotiable for us. Every Mezz One mezzanine is designed with these aspects as top priorities.

In the UK, structural steel mezzanine floors are primarily constructed according to BS EN 1993 BS, the prevailing European standard for steel construction in buildings. Legacy British Standards like BS5950 and BS449 may also be utilised, especially for projects of varying scope. Additionally, compliance with BS EN 1991, the European standard for structural loads and stresses (for instance, maximum load capacities), is typical, although references to the older BS 6399 are sometimes made.

The supervision of mezzanine installations and inspections is managed under the guidelines approved by the Storage Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (SEMA) and the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR). As an accredited SEMA Inspector, our company offers expert teams certified under SEMA’s Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme (SEIRS). We commit to full transparency regarding the standards and training involved in our projects, ensuring we deliver the utmost quality service.

Aesthetic Integration

Our mezzanines are not just functional; they are stylish. Integrating seamlessly with your existing architecture, they enhance the aesthetic appeal of your space.

The Installation Process

Our process is straightforward and minimally disruptive. From the initial consultation to the final walkthrough, our team ensures a seamless experience. Most installations are completed within days, and we take every measure to minimise the impact on your day-to-day operations.
