Once completed, the Cogan Mezzanine will provide storage space for pallets of pails while freeing up valuable floor space for finished product.

We also use our years of experience to scan the job site for obstructions or situations that might not be obvious to the less trained eye, but if not taken into account in the design, will be a problem once the steel starts going up.
