James and Scott, the owners of Red’s True BBQ, came to us on the recommendation of another client, bringing with them a great concept. They commissioned us to put together a complete package ready for them to roll out.
We ran the entire project, from concept to completion. We designed the bars, kitchens and furniture, flooring and materials, taking a brand new concept and making it a reality.
The project began with full demolition and strip out, leading on to kitchen and bar design and build, and a full range of M+E services, including specialist kitchen ventilation, with odour and smoke control.
Custom metalwork plays a big role in Red’s visual branding. We manufactured a range of blackened steel back bar displays, including hanging glass racks and beer fonts made from industrial pipes, and circular, distressed steel bars made with visible welding joints.
We designed and created all the restaurant features exclusively for Red’s True BBQ. The fixed seating was made from wooden pallets to give an industrial, stripped back look, and we installed specialist carousel lighting above the bar.
Red’s True BBQ is about authentic smokehouse food. We installed imported Southern Pride smokers, each able to cook 500lb of meat at a time, and added in a genuine firepit and Robata grill.
Red’s in Leeds was the first restaurant in the chain. A relatively small space with awkwardly situated columns, the restaurant had to include large Southern Pride wood burning smokers, a Robata grill and specialist BBQ equipment.
Red's Manchester was situated in a listed building. As such, the internal columns needed to precisely match the original colour scheme. Our designers worked to painstakingly replicate the exact palette.
A notable feature of Red's Liverpool is the huge truck hanging in the centre of the restaurant - not something you see every day! The design and structural loadings took some time to work out, but the results are worth it.
This fast-track fit out was completed in just four weeks. Operations were running smoothly until the original vault in this former bank decided to get stuck. We spent hours with specialist drills to ease it out of place, and delivered the project on time and on budget.
