There are several critical steps to maintaining clear channels of communication during the process of installing a Strongbox Mezzanine. The six key steps in our mezzanine design process are as follows:
Our process begins with a free consultation. One of our design experts will contact you to arrange an appointment to ask the right questions, understand your requirements, and help plan the project. This is what makes us different. We will review the available products to determine which one will be the best fit for you.
Providing a Proposal
Once our team has an idea of your requirements, we will create a detailed proposal including material, options, freight, installation, permit costs, stamped engineered drawings, lift equipment required, etc.).
After we obtain your approval for the project, our team will prepare approval drawings for you to review, which generally takes 1 to 2 weeks. If there are any changes we will incorporate them to make sure the project is exactly the way you want it, but nothing will be fabricated until the drawing is approved by your team.
If you need help with your permit application, our team will gladly help you fill out the necessary paperwork. We typically furnish a stamped drawing with the project for inclusion in the application, but some municipalities also require written calculations, which are an extra cost. If a permit is required, nothing gets fabricated until the permit is secured.
Production and Delivery
Production begins after you approve the drawings or a permit is secured. The mezzanine will be delivered to your facility anywhere from 6 to 9 weeks depending on shop backlog, special details, painting or galvanizing requirements, or unforeseen delays. You will be given an estimated delivery date about a week after your order has been placed so you can begin to plan for its arrival.
Prior to the arrival of the material, our Project Manager will visit your facility to determine the jobsite conditions. That makes it easy to anticipate and pre-plan for glitches or problems that might arise to hold up the installation process. Our crew will arrive at your facility with all the necessary PPE, will review company safety procedures, and finish the typical job in 4 to 5 day timeframe depending on the size. Our crew is OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 trained, and we are registered with several safety compliance companies that prequalify subcontractors to make sure they comply with company safety guidelines. Off-hour and overtime installation is available if you want to minimize the disruption during a typical business day. Once the job is completed, our installers will walk through the area with you to obtain a signoff indicating your satisfaction.
