The Roles of General Contractors for Calgary Restaurant Renovations
“Renovating a space to accommodate a restaurant requires special considerations in regards to wiring, water, sewer, parking, lighting and many other areas. Unless you are extremely handy, you will need to hire contractors to complete the renovations.
Unless you have experience as an electrician, plumber or carpenter it’s best to hire professionals for the early stages of renovations. Areas that need to be inspected include the wiring, pipes, water lines, heating, air conditioning, ventilation (HVAC) systems, interior and exterior lighting. Some commercial equipment requires special electrical outlets and other wiring to work properly. In order to meet fire safety regulations, your restaurant kitchen will need special ventilation hoods in place, as well as a sprinkler system.”
General contractors for Calgary restaurant renovations can initially help in the concept and design. The space or lot is taken into consideration before any architectural or engineering plans are laid out; once this is done, the contractor can work together with the client in creating exterior and interior styles, and after that, formulate the blueprints. The contractor makes sure that details are comprehensive from foundations to building materials to plumbing and even up to the decorative plants and furniture arrangement.
Building and construction would warrant permit application as well, especially for starting entrepreneurs who may not be familiar with the policies, professional contractors can assist in the process. Thereafter, the contractor can begin with creating or renovating the restaurant according to plans. Whether it will be a single story cafe or an elaborate multiple-story bistro, the contractor will take care of it inside-out and top-to-bottom.
The clipped article may have suggested that professionals should be hired at the initial stages of renovation only. However, with all the services they can offer, general contractors in Calgary like Proflex Contracting Ltd. can be hired to handle virtually all of the construction details of a renovation. Leave the technicalities to the experts and you, as the boss of the business, will get to sit back and watch in awe as your dream restaurant rises from the ashes.
