MiTek will offer a solution that is not simply fit-for-purpose on handover, but also suitable for your business in several years' time. Achieving a future-proof design requires deep understanding of your business and its growth potential, that’s why we spend time early on to gain insight and develop the optimum solution for your business. It's easier and more cost-effective to future-proof at the beginning, than to realize a few years later that you need to make alterations.
If your business has changed over the course of the past five years, it is very likely to evolve further over the next five, so you need to factor in future growth and install a mezzanine solution that is not only suitable for today's needs but also fit for the future. Flexibility can be enhanced through modular design of the mezzanine floor itself, with most non-concrete floors capable of being extended or relocated.

Your new mezzanine floor will need to comply with all prevailing planning, building and health & safety regulations in the location where it is installed. These could include local and regional requirements as well as national ones. As the first global mezzanine company, MiTek has a team of chartered structural engineers, expert mezzanine designers and health & safety specialists who are familiar with the regulations and standards in the key markets in which we operate. In addition, our business model of partnering with local fabricators and installers means that your project benefits from even more local expertise – as well as a lower carbon footprint.
Mezzanine floors for industrial and distribution applications do not generally require planning permission from a local authority. However, you may need permission to build if your mezzanine is in a retail setting, its construction impacts the external appearance of your building or the installation is related to a change of use for your facility.
On the other hand, almost all mezzanines require approval by a building control body before construction can begin. The building regulations that apply vary across geographical regions but are likely to include the following, all of which we can assist with:
