PROJECT:  Restaurant Decorating – Garfunkels Restaurant, the 02 Arena London

Restaurant Decorating Project – the 02Restaurant Decorating Project – Garfunkels-1




Phillips Decorators were instructed to carry out a nine week restaurant decorating project at Garfunkels at the 02 Arena, London for our main contractor.  The job consisted of the complete strip out of existing units fixtures and fittings, supply and installation of new partition walls, MF ceilings, fixed bench seating, new staircase, new oak flooring, electrics complete, new air-con units, new plumbing and loose furniture.

During these works being carried out we had only two weeks to complete the decorating package which included the following:- Applying specialist finishes to some ceilings, bulkheads and walls to ground and first floor to give an aged effect, murals fitted to feature walls, low odour eggshell to woodwork using Dulux and Crown paints.

The colours varied from area to area from basic magnolia to all staff areas and deep red and orange to the restaurant, bar and toilets, giving a warm feel to the whole restaurant. All as directed by our designer.

The restaurant decorating project was completed on time and handed over snag free to a delighted client. This is due to the knowledge of the site foreman and contractors working together and having successfully completed a great number already this year.

Putting this system together allows each trade to follow on and complete on time snag free first time every time.
