Gotham West Builders Mastercool, Randolph, NJ
Gotham West Builders, a New Jersey general contractor, contacted The Mezzanine Company for help in finding the right storage solution for a client of theirs, Mastercool. Mastercool is a New Jersey based family owned company that has been supplying professional air conditioning, service tools, and equipment for over 25 years.
Mastercool needed to create more space in their warehouse as they were out of floor space. A mezzanine floor looked like a good option, but there were a few challenges:
1. They wanted a solution that wouldn’t interrupt their current floor plan
2. There were existing building columns in the area where the mezzanine would go and also obstructions on the wall, and they didn’t want this to prevent them from maximizing their space
3. They wanted something that would match the branding of their company
Working closely with both the contractor and the customer we reviewed the information on the project and devised a plan to get Mastercool the most out of the space they had available. This resulted in a nearly 4,200 square foot mezzanine.
To make sure the mezzanine did not interrupt their current setup, the structure was designed with a deck clearance of 10.5 feet to allow them to keep the shelves and other equipment underneath.
To address the building columns and obstructions, we used cantilever arms as part of this design and added cutouts around existing building columns to allow us to go right up to the existing walls maximizing the space available.
For access to the mezzanine, we supplied an OSHA staircase for foot traffic and incorporated three 6’wide sliding mezzanine gates.
In addition to the standard handrail and kick plate that we put up on all open sides, we coordinated the shipping and installation of a 10’ tall wire partition to eliminate falling hazards on the one side of the mezzanine where shelving was to be put up in the future.
Lastly, we were able to match the company color for the painting of the mezzanine, so it fit right in once installed.
All of this was done in a timely fashion by staying in constant contact with the customer, shipping company, installer and the contractor to fit the timelines for the electrician, plumber, and HVAC technicians, allowing for the successful on time completion of the project.
What Our Customers Say...
It is always my intention to do business with companies that put customer service and satisfaction in the forefront. When we needed a mezzanine to expand storage in one of our rooms we looked for a company that we felt could fit the bill and The Mezzanine Company certainly did just that.
