Mezzanine Floors: How much do they cost per square metre?

July 6, 2010

It’s a question that we often get asked, but it’s difficult to answer because:

Cost depends on many factors such as:

  • The extent of the mezzanine floor and associated economies of scale.
  • The load capacity for which the structure is to be designed.
  • The deflection limit to which the floor is to be designed.
  • The column grid required.
  • The maximum depth of the structure itself.
  • How many, and what kind of means of access are required.
  • Are any landings required?
  • Is fire protection required?
  • Are materials being delivered, and if so where to?
  • What material is to be used for the decking?
  • Is the mezzanine to be installed on a clear and level site or over existing equipment?
  • Is installation required?
  • Is installation to be undertaken during normal working hours or at weekends or evenings?

Basic headline costs per square metre may exclude necessary staircases, hand railing, delivery, installation, and are likely to assume a most economic grid and low load bearing capacity, low deflection limits.

With this many variables, a cost per square metre is relatively meaningless and buying on the basis of a low cost per square metre is ill advised unless the application is extremely undemanding, you have low expectations and are prepared for a bill for extras.

Our preferred approach is to discuss actual requirements with our clients and to quote on the basis of a specification that fully meets these requirements.
