Challenge

Eral, the owner of Vale Fox Distillery’s, great, great Dutch grandfather founded a distillery in New York State in 1651, just over an hour’s drive from where The Vale Fox Distillery is located. Whether it was an ancestral calling or simply a beautiful coincidence, the owner of Vale Fox Distillery left behind his life investing in businesses to construct an exceptional full-scale distillery from the ground up.

The manufacturing process, at Vale Fox Distillery, would take place in a beautiful new building that they were constructing. In order to access some of the new stills they were installing, and to also hold a spirit safe, they would need a mezzanine work platform.

The mezzanine would need to be custom designed to fit around the distilling equipment. Vale Fox Distillery reached out to The Mezzanine Company to help provide a solution.

Solution

The Mezzanine Company worked closely with Vale Fox Distillery to come up with a design for a 250 square foot irregular shaped work platform mezzanine that would serve their needs. For the flooring, bar grating would be used.

In order to work around the distilling equipment, the work platform mezzanine was designed with custom placed columns and cutouts (as seen in the pictures)

Once the proposal was accepted, approval drawings were created and our project manager made a site visit to make the final design adjustments. Additionally, we provided PE stamped drawings to be used for permitting purposes.

When the mezzanine was completed production, we arranged for a prompt delivery and coordinated together the best installation schedule. The mezzanine was installed by our local installation team, as planned.

What Our Customers Say...

I have been extremely satisfied with the personal service received from The Mezzanine Company; they treat you like family. The accuracy of the order and the dates of delivery were right on and the installers were very accommodating and friendly. Everyone has been really helpful and easy to work with, especially being in the crunch for product that I was in. They will be my first call and my recommendation to anyone looking for the services they provide.
