    Types of Restaurant Construction Regions


    Restaurant construction is broken down into two distinct regions, what is called “back of house” and “front of house”. “Front of house” restaurant construction encompasses all of the front facing design work visible to their guests. This includes the exterior, dining rooms, bars, eating counters, and public restrooms. “Back of house” restaurant construction covers the internal kitchen of the restaurant for the staff to operate in. Kitchen construction typically contains the installation of a cook line, dishwasher, fridge, and three-compartment sink. These two terms are the primary differentiators between restaurant buildings and business projects.

    Our commercial general contractor team are experts in all facets of restaurant construction and are knowledgeable about all the regulations that restaurants are required to meet. From your walk in refrigerator to the color of your bathroom, our professionals are dedicated to ensuring that every portion of your restaurant complies with crucial codes and is to your design and liking.
