The Boom in Restaurant Construction – Part 2

Restaurants are doing brisk business in the East Tennessee area right now. If you’ve gone out to eat, chances are you’ve had to wait for a table.

Leon Williams Contractors has tracked and capitalized on this trend in restaurant commercial construction activity in the Knoxville and Maryville communities.

As new construction is booming with national chains and fast food restaurants, there’s also a market in reclaiming space in existing facilities when new land isn’t available to support a restaurateurs’ needs.

Some typical restaurant conversion projects require a black iron duct installation to handle kitchen exhaust, a larger gas service to accommodate a cook line, more potent electrical equipment to accommodate for power and the HVAC has to be properly engineered as heat created from the kitchen can stifle the rest of the dining space if not properly regulated.

There’s evidence of this boom in both new construction and restaurant conversions all around the nation as these types of building permits have far exceeded home permits.

Commercial construction companies like Leon Williams Contractors have restaurant construction experience and a great understanding of commercial construction timetables, and a restaurant construction budget that can make this transition a reality.
