Chiquito Exeter receives Synecore’s professional M&E treatment
Synecore has supported The Restaurant Groups (TRG) national roll out programme for many years by providing professional M&E design and installation for its restaurant chains across the country. The latest TRG restaurant to receive Synecore’s professional treatment was the new Chiquito restaurant in Exeter, which opened last month.
Working alongside architecture and design experts, Turner Bates, Synecore initially ensured the site was electrically safe for the other trades to begin onsite. Once this was complete, Synecore proceeded to first fix the electrical installation to support the restaurant’s lighting, signage, general power, CCTV, emergency lighting, data and fire alarm system.
The electrical design was well planned to ensure the needs of the restaurant were fully catered for throughout the front of house, exterior, washrooms, kitchen and office. In the kitchen the electrical design needed to provide enough power for a wide range of equipment, from pizza ovens, fryers and dishwashers to coffee machines and walk-in coldrooms.
Once the decoration was underway, Synecore could begin on the second fix. For the exterior Synecore fitted external lighting, parasol lighting, heaters and signage. Inside, Chiquitos’ trademark pendent lighting and table lamps were fitted throughout the restaurant area, while LED strips, wall lights, down-lighters and up-lighter completed the look throughout. The project took 11 weeks to complete. It was delivered on time and on budget.
Having worked on numerous TRG projects with Synecore, Turner Bates was hugely complimentary of their work. Director Howard Bates said,
“We’ve worked with Synecore on many occasions and enjoy their professional approach. We know we can rely on their electricians and engineers to complete works on time, allowing us to keep to our schedule. The team is always very accommodating to our needs and we work fantastically together. Most importantly the end result is always finished to an extremely high standard.”
