Case Study

GMS Racing, Statesville, NC

Sq. Ft.
Storage Mezzanine



Located in Statesville, North Carolina, GMS Racing is “an American professional stock car racing
team that currently competes in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the NASCAR
Camping World Truck Series.

GMS Racing was looking to gain some additional storage space to
store parts. Since the building is used for assessing vehicles after races,
they wanted to reserve as much floor space as possible. The logical solution
was to use some of the unused air space in the building. 

GMS Racing contacted The Mezzanine Company to provide a mezzanine

Some of the challenges of the project would be

The mezzanine would need to be positioned
tightly against a wall with obstructions, including an existing building column

To allow for maximum storage of vehicles below,
they would need specific column placement to minimize the amount of space taken
up by the mezzanine on the ground floor

They wanted the ability to easily move oversize
materials on and off of the mezzanine


After reviewing the project requirements, we provided a quote and design for an approximately 1,600 square foot mezzanine. The mezzanine was custom designed with specific column placement to create lanes for vehicles to fit underneath. Additionally, it was designed to also fit around all of the wall obstructions. This included a cut out around some existing HVAC.

To enable the movement of large items on and off the mezzanine, the mezzanine would have two large 10’ sliding gates.

Once GMS Racing decided to move forward with the project, since timing was important, we moved quickly to get approval drawings ready for their review. Once they were ready, one of our project managers flew down to NC and reviewed the drawings with them in person to make any necessary adjustments.

Once the mezzanine was out of production, we arranged for a prompt delivery the week preceding the install weekend. The mezzanine was installed as planned, and on time, with minimum interruption to operations.
