The Benefits of Restaurant and Bar Fit Outs

For many people, a trip to a bar or restaurant is an exciting treat to try new cuisines and drinks and relax in the company of family or friends, and a tired, soulless venue won’t cut it for giving the right ambience. This is why a restaurant or bar fit out can significantly enhance the customer experience by creating a visually appealing and welcoming environment. A bar or restaurant fit out will also improve operational efficiency to allow for enhanced customer service and workflow for staff. Updating the interior can be an opportunity for businesses to reinvigorate their brand to attract a wider customer base and increase sales by making it more competitive within the industry.

Our Restaurant and Bar Fit Out Process

We always aim to keep our bar and restaurant fit outs as simple and stress-free as possible, both throughout the process and in terms of our turnkey project management.


1. Initial Consultation and Project Initiation

The fit out process begins with the discussion of your vision and the generation of a free, no obligation quote based on this consultation. When these details and the quote are agreed upon, the project begins.

2. Design Phase

Our design team get to work to create your perfect bar, restaurant, gym, hotel or other hospitality fit out with CAD drawings, meaning you can better visualise your finished development. The design phase is collaborative as we aim to breathe life into your vision and want to ensure it meets your requirements.

3. Supply and Build

The materials needed are delivered to your site and with the relevant qualified engineers, the building processes begin. Should the work need to be undertaken in stages to minimise the disruption to your operations, your dedicated project manager will organise the scheduling, deliveries and contractors.

4. Snagging and Handover

When the work is completed, a full check will take place to identify any snagging tasks or elements that need to be altered. When you’re completely happy everything has been resolved, the handover is complete, allowing your staff and customers to benefit from your new fit out.


Building Control and Other Regulations

Our team will take care of all building, health and safety and fire regulations that are necessary for your bar or restaurant fit out. We understand the importance of getting the legalities in place, so the minute we hand back over, you have peace of mind the finished fit out is compliant and safe for your staff and clients to use.

Time Scale of a Fit Out Project

The time scale of your unique fit out project will depend on the size and scope as well as whether you’re aiming to stay open to customers through the project. Our team is expert at arranging a staged process to enable your business to continue to function throughout. We have decades of experience at handling hospitality fit outs and this enables us to give accurate estimates of timeframes, and we pride ourselves on meeting these within budget every time.

Project Management

Dedicated Project Manager

We always allocate a dedicated manager to each of our clients as we understand the value of having a single point of contact for each project. Our project manager will handle coordinating contractors, materials and timelines as well as all building control and regulatory compliance. This will mean you have clear and consistent communication and updates about your hospitality fit out as well as ensuring the project is completed on time and within your budget.
