Restaurants / Bars / Cafes

When deciding to renovate a business in the hospitality industry, such as a restaurant, bar or café, the single most important factor in any successful renovation is a carefully thought out plan. A restaurant or bar renovation is not as simple as one might think since it requires the coordination of several rooms, each important in their own way. The atmosphere, decor and layout of your restaurant or bar plays an essential part in attracting clientele. Highlands Master Builders is an expert in building and renovating bars, cafes and restaurants. Our team will analyze your business’s needs, wants, and branding requirements to understand the diverse complexities of your renovation project. Then, together, we will come up with a solid game plan and order all materials before the project starts. This in turn will allow us to hit the ground running with no interference from material procurement and unexpected hitches in the plans.

Throughout the projects we have completed over the years in hospitality construction and renovation, our experts have developed a series of ideas to consider when effectively planning your bar/café/restaurant renovation. First, does your exterior have ample access for people with disabilities or for the elderly? Second, what does your business’s exterior communicate? While the interior of your restaurant will be a primary factor influencing the experience customers will have as guests, the exterior of the building is what will attract new potential customers in the first place, and is therefore just as important. Make sure your brand image is well represented and that your exterior siding is inviting and appealing to those who don’t know your restaurant. Also, the tables, chairs, benches, counters, bars and all the elements that will ensure that the all these elements appear in unison.

Are your bathrooms outdated? It is important to keep the atmosphere and look of the rest of your restaurant on the same level. You can implement a classic style or a more stylish and unique style for the restaurant bathroom to instil a sense of luxury as part of the dining experience.

Do you have a terrace and how do you handle inclement weather? We can show you multiple designs for retractable or permanent shelters to keep your clients happy!

A kitchen, storage room and pantry refurbishment will increase productivity and reduce the time it takes to prepare dishes. You should think about replacing the old ovens, stove hoods, and important kitchen appliances.

Once the renovation plan has been signed off on and all materials have been ordered, we will set a project timeline, and everyone will know their role. The Highlands Master Builders business model is based upon the simple principles of Trust, Transparency, and Quality.  Over the years we’ve become one of the most recommended and referred renovation companies in Metro Vancouver. Our team will become an extension of your team, working throughout the design and construction phases in a clear and transparent manner, ensuring you always have the right information to make informed decisions that will best serve your business.

We have done many renovations in the past, but Highlands crew was outstanding. It is rare to find a construction company that has so much knowledge and experience and has the leadership to see a project through from the beginning to the end. They were always onsite, early in the morning. They were pleasant, polite and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We were actually sad when they left, as they were like family friends staying at our house!

If you want a great crew, outstanding workmanship, transparent and easy to understand billing this is THE company! We would hire Andrew and the guys back for another project any time. Thank you again for going the extra mile – we are very grateful.
