Project Type: Design & Build – Mechanical, Public Health and Electrical
Contractor: LXA
Client: Happy Restaurant London

Project Scope

This project involved the design and installation of the mechanical, public health & electrical services for a new restaurant and kitchen – Happy Bar and Grill in London’s bustling West End. The restaurant would include 300 covers with a full open plan cooking area, preparation areas and back of house office areas. Despite the property having previously housed another restaurant, the client needed a complete replacement of all services to suit their needs.

Heat recovery air conditioning Heat recovery ventilation systems Kitchen canopies
Hydro boxes for heating & hot water demands Kitchen supply & extract systems Ansul fire suppression systems
Boosted hot & cold-water systems Filtration systems Gas proving systems
Grease traps Stainless steel floor channels Sewage pumps
Sprinkler system Toilet ventilation Gas distribution system
Above ground drainage Leak detection Air conditioning to server room
Door curtains Building management system Supply & fit sanitary ware
Small power Lighting including emergency lighting Feature lighting
CCTV Audio visual Access control & intruder alarm
Data wiring Fire alarms New distribution boards

The Priory Approach

It was crucial to complete this project quickly so the restaurant could open as soon as possible.

We worked closely with the client, design team and head chefs to understand the best way to install the services. Detailed surveys of the existing landlord’s supplies allowed us to create a design that incorporated the existing supplies with the additional provision that was needed.

To meet the aggressive schedule, we staged the release of the design information. This meant our installation teams could get a head start on the first fix works while other parts of the project were still in design phase. We further supported this client’s tight schedule by using two teams working in split shifts during the week to maximise productivity.

“We have worked with Priory for over 16 years across a large range of projects, sectors and sizes and they have never let us down.  They genuinely care about each project and go above and beyond to ensure a successful  outcome whether that be through design, installation or maintenance.  Successful projects are about good people and Priory excel on this front.”
