I want to build a mezzanine floor in a former cinema I'm converting to
living space. I reckon it will measure about 25 x 15 feet.
I'm thinking of using Glulam for the main structure.
Does anyone on this group have any expertise or experience they could
pass on - or maybe recommend a book/set of plans I could get hold of?
I would also be interested to know of any firms who carry out this
sort of work - just in case I get a case of cold feet and wobbly saw!
Try a web search for "Mezzanine Floor" and you'll get loads of hits for
companies and firms that supply,
fit and tailor make them for any situation.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I've had a thorough trawl through but mezzanine floors seem to mean
warehouses for the most part, whereas I need something for home use.
It may be, of course, that I can adapt some sort of industrial kit.
It's amazing what a thin cladding of timber around the frame does. With a
prefab' frame you know have
something that will take the loads you need, and that it is going to last
without lots of maintenance. So
I personally would go for the kit and adapt it to suit the installation required.
You might be able to pick up a frame from a auction room or factory sale, so
hold out for a while and
search the local papers and salesrooms Etc.
Good luck with it, and have a Good New Year.

... in terms of adversely affecting the fire rating of the structure? ;-)
AIUI a mezzanine floor is a mezzanine, it's where and what you build onto or
under it makes it either industrial or domestic. One thing to understand,
just as there are reg's for most things, there are stringent reg's for
