Mezzanines for warehouse developers

With research indicating that the UK will need an additional 60 million sq ft of warehouse space – equivalent to 14% of existing capacity – by 2025 (source: CBRE), there is huge demand for mezzanine floor solutions among developers of industrial property. Of course, maximizing the value for potential users of a new or refurbished building requires both deep market knowledge and technical expertise – including mezzanine know-how. By getting involved in development projects at an early stage, MiTek can provide expertise gained from over 35 years of delivering mezzanine solutions, helping to maximize the value of any asset and avoid expensive alterations later on.

Sound mezzanine advice


It is important for any developer to have a preliminary design that supports the intended purpose for the building. In particular, the ground slab needs to be able to bear the load required for the distribution operations and planned material handling equipment. This means that the design of a mezzanine structure and choice of materials is something that often needs to be considered before a general contractor is selected.

If you are in negotiations with a prospective tenant, are preparing permit applications or simply want to ensure that you maximize the potential of a site, early engagement with MiTek pays dividends. Our experienced team can offer:

  • Preliminary designs to support permit applications
