How to Build a Smart, Efficient Restaurant

Designing a building requires exacting architectural skills. Designing a restaurant, however, requires an even more specialized skill set. You want a restaurant that is comfortable, intimate and inviting, and your average architect or contractor just won’t be able to deliver on all three.

Understanding how restaurants function efficiently requires the knowledge of a construction team that has extensive experience in the food service industry. At econstruct, we know what it takes to build smart, efficient restaurants.

Functional Design

As a whole, each space within a restaurant has its own function. The kitchen, bar, patio and dining area each has their own unique challenges. Owners want to maximize each space to its fullest but may not know how to bring the details to life.

Additional elements such as lighting, color scheme and sound also must be considered from a functional and efficiency viewpoint, as well as in terms of the ambiance they provide for patrons. All of the elements must work in harmony with the restaurant’s brand. This is true regardless of whether the owner is planning a full-service dining, a fast-casual restaurant or fast food concept.

Focusing on Efficiency

Owners need to create an ambiance in the dining areas that works in tandem with the restaurant brand.  The interior should always reinforce the brand. At the same time, great consideration must be given to the efficiency of the kitchen and food production areas.

Dining room seating, kitchen flow, equipment placement and the planning of storage spaces are all key components of efficient restaurant design. Additional blogs will delve more deeply into each of these areas.

Suffice it to say, restaurant owners who want to remodel or create a completely new concept need the expertise of an experienced builder who specializes in restaurant design and construction. And that’s where econstruct comes in.
