Taco Bell was in plan to open a new franchise store at Fair Lawn, New Jersey. As a leading fast food restaurant, Taco Bell’s prime concern was ventilation and odor in kitchen areas which might affect the customers dining in. Another challenge was to match the standard set by Taco Bell and design equipment which will give more space in the kitchen area.
The project was a complex designing challenge as the franchise owner wanted us to design MEP system to lower the construction cost. Providing power to all specialized equipment, easy maintenance and disposable of grease waste, and meeting energy conservation code requirements added more complexities.
Our experts team focused on the ventilation issue and designed a dedicated exhaust fan for kitchen to eliminate odor and maintain proper ventilation in the kitchen area. Separate RTU system was provided for dining spaces heating and cooling requirement. For the grease waste, we provided low maintenance pre-caste grease trap outside the store which saved the cost and helped the owner in easy waste disposal.
We designed the entire franchise within 2 weeks resulting in Taco Bell, Fair Lawn, New Jersey starting operations with lower energy costs and prior to estimated timeline.
