Process of Building a Mezzanine Floor



Developing your business premises doesn’t need to be painful or take a long time. Whether you need space for more stock, increased office space or warehouse space, a mezzanine floor or mezzanine office is a quick and cost effective option.

Rather than moving premises and going through the long process of real estate agents, relocating stock & equipment, and all the headaches that come with it –far easier is a mezzanine floor that can be easily designed, manufactured and installed, hassle free by the team at Dynamic Warehouse Solutions.


The most crucial part of the mezzanine floor process is the design. A mezzanine floor must be designed and fabricated to not only meet your requirements but also to meet the Australian Building Regulation requirements and the relevant OHS standards.

Safety consideration include fire safety and edge protection. Fire safety measures include suspended ceilings, column casings, staircase enclosures, sprinkler systems and smoke detectors. Edge protection measures include handrails, pallet gates, non-slip treads and visual signage & floor marking.

Planning / Building Permits

Planning permits are generally not required for free standing storage mezzanines, although a mezzanine office may need a planning permit if attached to the base structure of the building. You can talk to a consultant at Dynamic if you are unsure about this or have any questions. Dynamic Warehouse Solutions can complete the planning and building permit process for you if required.

Installation Process

The installation process needn’t be tedious or inconvenient and by choosing a professional mezzanine company with a competent project manager you should experience a smooth transition from the quote stage to installation.

First a detailed check measure will be undertaken to confirm measurements for manufacture. Any additional changes are made at this point. Final designs are then made up along with a schedule of manufacture and installation to ensure the project runs smoothly. There is generally around a 2 to 3 week manufacture lead-time until the materials arrive on site. Onsite installation is minimised by doing as much manufacturing as possible off site to minimise disruption to your day-to-day activities. Dynamic has experience in working over equipment and machinery as well as working in with warehouse staff to ensure your business keeps running smoothly over the installation process.

Final sign off includes an on-site quality check, final site clean and a sign off by the customer.
