Large numbers of modern buildings, and even Victorian ones, have generous overhead space. In some cases, it helps optimise lighting and ventilation but in most it just wastes space and adds to your HVAC overheads. With land prices and rentals in an upward spiral, wasting that space makes no sense. Adding extra floors is more practical than you think.

With structural steel, we can construct a wide range of new floor levels, gantries, stairwells and walkways. They can include access routes over heavy machinery, elegant mezzanine offices and balconies or entirely free-standing structures within your existing building shell. Clients use this extra space to accommodate new machinery, provide safe service access, improve fire escapes, expand offices, increase storage capacity, gain roof access or provide new staff facilities and visitor centres.

In storage facilities and warehouses, access walkways are a huge improvement on mobile gantries, ladders and lifting equipment. They improve staff safety and picking speed and can improve the stability of over-taxed shelving solutions. Most important, they make better use of your floor area and thereby make you more competitive.

A “Raised Storage Area” or RSA can refer to a wall-attached mezzanine or a freestanding structure. By moving some functions onto a new RSA, you can free space below it for others. That way you not only gain space but create opportunities to reorganise more efficiently. New floors can be solid or open mesh – preserving the benefits of natural light.

Walker design, manufacture and install all kinds of steel access platforms and mezzanine floors – the complete package including all calculations and paperwork needed to comply with fire regulations and other health, safety and planning procedures. We have experienced project engineers ready to visit you at any time.
