This time lapse video shows the HMF team installing a 145m2 mezzanine office space with partitioning, suspended ceilings, flooring, lighting, emergency lighting and a small kitchen.
The installation was commissioned by Ionoptika Ltd; a specialist ion beam technology company based in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire.
Ionoptika were looking to move to new premises with additional space for their operations & requested HMF put forward a proposal for a new mezzanine office & general refurbishment of the existing building.
The works were to include an ultra slimline mezzanine floor due to the roof height of the building being quite low. HMF designed a thin steel joist mezzanine which still enabled a 1 hour suspended ceiling to be fitted underneath. This had a service void within the ceiling which enabled mechanical & electrical services to be encapsulated whilst maintaining the future flexibility of access to the complete underside of the mezzanine for future modifications to mechanical/electrical services.
HMF also provided demountable glazed partitioning & drylining to the new mezzanine office.
HMF undertook the complete refurbishment of the existing building including building works, air conditioning, lighting & power systems for the new operation.
HMF provided energy efficient lighting including flat panelled LED recessed modular lighting to below the mezzanine floor to again maximise the headroom below the floor. Tape & jointing & decoration works were undertaken to finish off the look of the areas giving a most pleasant office environment for Ionoptika’s team.
The works were started ahead of the original agreed programme to ensure that Ionoptika could relocate when required. This time lapse video shows the construction of the mezzanine floor which was totally pre-fabricated away from site & pre-painted prior to being delivered, thereby not requiring any hot works or welding on site & also enabling the steelwork to be erected within 4 days. A further also worked over the weekends to ensure the programme was met.
Ionoptika are now in & working in their beautiful new premises.
