PROJECT:  Restaurant Decorating – Barbecoa

Restaurant Decorating Project – Barbecoa1Restaurant Decorating Project – Barbecoa2




Phillips Decorators have recently completed a restaurant decorating project at Jamie Oliver and Adam Perry Lang’s new concept Restaurant Barbecoa at St Pauls in London.

We are pleased to be involved in the TV chefs new venture which opens mid November on the 1st floor of the £800,000,000.00 site in the biggest shopping centre in London.

The ‘Barbecoa’ is not just a massive restaurant and take away, but it has its own butchers shop adjacent to the restaurant selling British meat, poultry and game.

Our involvement

We started the painting and decorating project on site at the beginning of September, after sifting through plenty of paper work to understand the new products we were expected to use on this project.

We started on site initially preparing wall and ceiling areas to be decorated, the contract was to be over several weeks and although it seems a long time at the start, it soon creeps by; we had a lot of sorting to do as Jamie made various changes and some of the products needed to be imported from abroad.

This site has various specialist paint finishes which our skilled trade’s men were able to carry out themselves enabling us to carry out the complete works in house with no need to employ outside trades.

Not only the everyday Eggshells and Emulsions were being applied to the walls and ceilings, and 2 pack floor paints being used, but we also had to learn new techniques to apply specialist finishes from Francesca paints which was a lime wash.

We also put charcoal on the walls in areas which had to be imported from Japan. This needed to be mixed with methylated spirits and water to enable us to apply this amazing product, leaving a truly unique finish.                                          

Farrow and Ball paints were also used and we applied murals to fascias around the butchers shop.

The restaurant looks absolutely amazing and everyone including Jamie and Adam are very happy with the quality, finish and end result.

Another great quality restaurant decorating contract completed on time to a tight schedule, snag free by Phillips Decorators.
