This project included preconstruction and construction services for the 5,192-square-foot restaurant on the corner of Camden and Tremont in lively South End. Scope of work included the demolition of existing office space, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, kitchen and hood equipment installation. The restaurant accommodates 165 patrons, including a 30-seat indoor/outdoor bar with accordion walls that open to a 25-seat patio. The outdoor dining experience is accented by the expansive ipe decking that gives it a boardwalk feel. Lush planters, colorful furniture, neon lights and clear views of the interior space brings the street fare vibe to every corner of the patio. The main dining area features hundreds of Asian street posters while wok and birdcage light fixtures showcase the textural differences in the wood, brick and white subway tile walls. Balfour Beatty was able to salvage metal panels off an old foundry building just down the street that was scheduled for demolition. These were integrated into the interior façade just in front of the hostess stand as a decorative feature. The original floors, which date back decades, were left exposed and sealed to provide a more authentic look to the space. Acoustical treatments to dampen noise were seamlessly integrated into the majority of the low ceilings and coordinated with lighting, speaker, camera, sprinkler and fire alarm penetrations.
