Project Outline:

Synecore were called two weeks prior to starting by TRG’s fit out manager Mark Suggett, to help as the previous contractor couldn’t undertake the works. Synecore immediately started the ball rolling in obtaining passes and reviewing the drawings by both the designer Bruce McCallion from ‘Nicholson Design Partnership’ and the M&E consultant David Crossley ‘Crossley Associates’.

Upon receiving the drawings Synecore obtained quotes from Northern Lights whom supplies all the pendant and decorative lights for Frankie & Benny’s. The LED’s were supplied from Popple Products and the Fans from Nimbus Lighting. The project was then priced up on the information at hand and then had a compliant tender accepted.

This refurbishment needed a complete new cook line and front of house restaurant and bar, whilst keeping the EST office and walk in cold-rooms supplies live. We also had to replace all the fuse boards to bring them in line with current IEE regulations and this called for some tricky isolations and temp boards being fed to keep the EST bar area running.

The project was called for the second phase strip out of the existing EST restaurant which is airside at Luton. We over came problems of deliveries and entering the air airside zone by working closely with the main shop fitters “Interiors UK” whom provided us with escorts and by also building up a good relationship with “Liam Watts” the site foreman.

We had a time scale of 6 weeks for this works, which was a major task for that type of installation but our choice in team members played the crucial role, utilising electricians whom knew the product and were able to undertake a higher specification of installation came through.

Delays to some building works also gave us some complications but with long hours and dedication by the team it enabled Synecore to achieve handover on time for the site to open for the May bank holiday weekend.
