Single Level Mezzanine Floor, Staircases And Pallet Gate Installation

A project to supply and install a single level, multi-use mezzanine floor, staircases and handrail in a new store.

The Project

We were commissioned by our client to supply and install a single level mezzanine floor of 405 square metres. In addition, we installed two staircases and a 20-metre handrail and pallet gate.

Our Client

Travis Perkins is the UK's largest distributor of building materials to the building, construction and home improvement markets. We have been working with the Travis Perkins group since January 2016. Their companies include Benchmark, City Plumbing, CCF and Wickes.

To date, we have completed over 60 projects and built a solid relationship with them and their teams. USS is Travis Perkins PLC’s preferred supplier for mezzanine floors.

Mezzanine Floor in New StoreThe Challenge

This supply and installation project was for a new Travis Perkins Store. They wanted to add a multi-use mezzanine floor in their warehouse that would be utilized for both product storage and offices for employees.

Travis Perkins made an enquiry to USS and included drawings of the building.

USS created an initial drawing of the mezzanine and the additional components (staircases, handrail and pallet gate) and provided a quotation based on the design outlined in the initial drawing.

Once built, we carried out a site survey to see if any tweaks to the initial drawing was required. As this proved to be the case, USS provided new drawings which were sent to Travis Perkins for their approval.

Once approved, the drawings were sent to our Haverhill factory for manufacture. The manufactured items were delivered to the site and erected by our team of installers.

Once the mezzanine floor was erected, we painted the columns with intumescent paint to provide a fire rating in compliance with the building regulations.

And Finally

The mezzanine floor, two staircases and a 20-metre handrail and pallet gate were all installed to our client’s deadline.

We Are Happy to Say

Our design help prior to the building being erected provided the opportunity for changes to be made before the floor was installed. Our client continues to be a very happy USS customer.
