Working with Nexus has been a great experience, nothings been a problem whatsoever, I would recommend other companies to get in touch with Nexus and see if they can help with their projects.
Alatas Engineering are one of the market leaders in the mechanical engineering services industry. From humble beginnings in 2000, they have consistently grown to become the company that they are today.
They moved to their current premises in 2010 and due to their growth have now begun to outgrow their current premises. Therefore they had two options, find a new premises and relocate or find a contractor that could provide them with the mezzanine floor solution that they needed.
Here’s our video case study for this project featuring Managing Director, David Cooper sharing his thoughts on the office mezzanine floor project and working with Nexus.
The search for an office mezzanine floor solution
Alatas Engineering needed more office space for both their current and new employees and due to the lack of available warehouse space, started to consider a mezzanine floor solution. This would allow them to gain the additional office space required within a smaller footprint.
They needed a specialist contractor who would be able to design the new space using a mezzanine floor and implement the complete build, taking any stress from themselves. This was important as they had to continue running their business operations.
They had initially considered using an architect for the design aspects and then hiring contractors to implement the build. However they soon realised that this would have been a time consuming and costly process. Therefore they searched Google for mezzanine floor fit out contractors and found us.
As they didn’t have a specification in place and weren’t setting up a tender process for the works, they needed a company that could come in, discuss their requirements, measure the space and understand Alatas’ business operations. This procedure ensures Alatas receive the correct solution for their needs.
After they contacted us through our website, we visited their premises to conduct a site survey and to discuss their requirements. We soon discovered that an office mezzanine floor would be the ideal solution to their needs.
During these discussions we gathered information on Alatas’ work practices and the business’ workflow. This allowed us to design a workspace that suited how they work and made their business workflow even more efficient.
Our initial designs were delivered to Alatas within a one week period and the budget costs were sent to them within two weeks. this proposal included a full-turn key solution for the office mezzanine floor solution, minus furniture as they wanted to use their existing items.
Once Alatas received the initial designs, it was then a joint effort to finalise a design, price and specification that everyone was happy with. After a painless process, Alatas Engineering chose Nexus as their workspace partner for the mezzanine floor fit out.
The project involved the creation of an office mezzanine floor above their existing office space to house both existing and new employees. Within the footprint of the mezzanine we created three new office spaces, kitchen and breakout facilities, WC areas and a small storage mezzanine floor section.
To ensure that the offices got enough natural light, we installed brand new windows to the exterior of the building. The offices have been created using glass partitioning, which gives the facilities a sleek, modern look.
The managers office partitioning features integral blinds that are operated on a dial. This gives the manager the much needed privacy whenever they need it. The large boardroom overlooking the warehouse floor, allows Alatas to conduct meetings in an impressive setting.
Nexus acted as principal contractor throughout the project and took care of each and every aspect of the build. This included the installation of all electrical and plumbing requirements. We met Alatas’ deadline for the build and completed the project within budget.
Managing Director at Alatas Engineering, David Cooper said
‘Working with Nexus has been a great experience, nothing has been a problem whatsoever and I would recommend to other companies to get in contact with them and see if they can help them with their project’.
The new premises have provided Alatas with a space to grow their business and hire even more employees. We would like to thank Alatas for the opportunity to work with them and help them to make the most of their available space. We wish everyone at Alatas all the best for the future.
We would love to partner with you to achieve your goals….
