We take a partnership approach with clients to ensure that their vision is realised throughout every step of the build process. We achieve this by maintaining open lines of communication and providing regular updates.
Once a suitable site/venue has been acquired, either Eamonn or John (our Directors) will visit the client and carry out a site inspection and gain a full understanding of their needs, expectations, budget and timeline to build an Irish bar.
After this site visit, we will forward the client on a detailed set cost proposal that includes plans, elevations, mood boards, contract listing and key dates. At this point we liaise and insist the client reads and understands all parts of the plans/listing and bar build process. The General Manager must be involved as to the workings of the space and how it can evolve. As the expert Irish pub builders, we will happily alter the design until all parties have satisfied all issues.
The contract listing includes every elements of the pub interior and exterior, all of which is sourced and hand made in our workshops in Ireland. These consist of: handcrafted Irish joinery (woodwork), bric-a-brac, external treatment, feature work, floor finishes, custom made, handcrafted Irish furniture, glass-work, ironmonger, light fixtures, metalwork, custom made signage, walls and ceiling finishes, transport the pub and install the pub.
Once the design and quotation is agreed upon, contracts are signed and the detailed design and manufacture of the pub commences. A typical time scale is approximately sixteen weeks from the signing of the contract to a fully completed Irish bar build. Whilst we create the pub fitout, the client, alongside their local building contractor, prepares the shell of the premises. This consists of liaising with a local architect and contractor to ensure that all permits are received and that shell is prepared for install and the installation of mechanics and plumbing.
Throughout the production stage, we provide images of each element of the client’s bar as it is being made. This ensures that the client’s expectations and requirements are being maintained and allows us the opportunity to make alterations prior to shipping. 70% of our clients actually come to Ireland to experience the production process of building an Irish bar and examine the quality of products for themselves. We encourage this as it allows the client to touch, feel and see how their bar will look and they can meet our team who makes it.
Once the manufacture stage is complete, we ship everything in containers to their destination to start to build an Irish pub. We send over our expert team of fitters, joiners, painters and tilers to complete the bar build process, some of whom you’ll meet when you visit our workshop.
