Case Study

Colony Hardware, Bronx, NY

Sq. Ft.
Storage Mezzanine



In 2013, we worked with Colony Hardware to design and engineer a 16,000 square foot mezzanine at their Orange, Connecticut location. Recently, they contacted us again to assist them on designing and providing another storage platform for their expansion in the Bronx, New York.

Some of the challenges of this project would be:

  1. They were looking to gain the most amount of space possible, while staying within the limits of what their local building code would allow
  2. They wanted the mezzanine to match up with two existing mezzanine structures in the building
  3. This mezzanine would be installed in an active warehouse and needed to be installed with minimum interruption to their operations
  4. They needed to incorporate a conveyor into the mezzanine to easily move boxes from the top of the mezzanine to the ground floor


We started by having our V.P. of project management schedule a site visit to their new location. Using their drawings and our findings during the site visit, we came up with a design for an approximately 3,500 square foot structure. The mezzanine was designed to maximize their space, while staying within the limits of the building code.

Additionally, the mezzanine was designed to match up with the existing mezzanine structures in the warehouse, so as to provide seamless integration with their existing space. We also provided two IBC staircases in order to provide easy and safe access for their employees. To help provide safe access for the loading of materials on the mezzanine, we provided an overhead safety gate.

We also provided a conveyor chute for the easy transportation of boxes from the top of the mezzanine to the ground floor. The mezzanine was custom designed to integrate with the conveyor chute.

Once the proposal was accepted, our project manager made numerous site visits and made the final design adjustments. As the shipment date was approaching, we worked closely with Colony Hardware and our installation team to target an ideal installation date. Once the mezzanine was delivered, our installation team got right to work and installed the mezzanine with minimum interruption to their operations.

Bob Balasco from Colony Hardware had this to say about The Mezzanine Company “From start to finish, The Mezzanine Company was always on top of things. Very responsive team, easy to work with, listened to our needs and requests and was always accommodating. Our facilities are extremely busy. It was necessary that your group worked around our schedule and stayed out of the way as we needed to be active in our warehouse. This was done easily; communication was always positive and productive”

Currently, we are assisting them with their expansion plans in the Midwest. Stay tuned.

What Our Customers Say...

Their responsiveness, flexibility, and quick and accurate execution put them at the top of my list when I need material handling equipment and related infrastructure. If you need something material handling related, from mezzanines to pallets jacks, they have it all and can get it to you quickly and painlessly.
