When this company decided to set up an in-house mail distribution centre with new collating mailsort machines, it started with an empty shell industrial unit having only disabled toilet facilities installed.

Advantage offered a complete design and build solution, liaising with Building control in respect of ‘means of escape’ and fire protected route, comprising the following elements:-

− Storage mezzanine floor with a wide column span and up and over pallet safety gate.
− One hour fire protection to the mezzanine.
− Two staircases with the ambulant stairs designed with plain timber treads and risers for carpeting and mopstick handrail.
− Taped and jointed stud partitions with suspended ceilings.
− Bulkhead ceiling aperture to maximise borrowed natural light.
− Server Room with ventilation.
− Rest Area complete with kitchen units and plumbing.
− Additional toilet facilities, connecting into the existing disabled toilet.
− Floor covering comprising both carpet tiles and ‘Polyflor’ vinyl.
− All electrical services including general and emergency lighting, data cabling, power and smoke detection.
