Chandlee and Sons Construction Company signed a contract with Jae Shim on December 12,2018 of K Pop BBQ and Bar, LLC of Marietta, Georgia for a commercial upfit project in Woodstock.
The scope of the work for this 3,075 square foot commercial upgrade project is to first demolish the white box space including partial partitions, part of the ceiling and the existing drinking fountain. The construction provided by Chandlee and Sons and contracted subcontractors included cleaning, polishing and sealing the concrete floors and installing ceramic tile and tile cove base in designated areas and vinyl cove base in the prep area and the restrooms. Portions of the ceilings received a lay-in ceiling, other portions remained open and were finished according the client’s preference. A new moisture resistant gypsum board was installed in the kitchen and restrooms with a high gloss finish. Other wall structures were either fiberglass reinforced panels or drywall – the walls were later painted with latex paint in a high gloss finish, and others covered in vinyl or brick veneer. The bar face received a wood veneer. Door frames were painted, and all wood doors received at least two coats of polyurethane. All interior finishes met or exceeded specified fire codes.
The electricians installed specific lighting for the bar shelving, the back lighting received acrylic panels with the restaurant’s logos, and additional light fixtures were installed over the dining tables and throughout the dining area. Specific canvas photos were hung in the dining areas, and our crew provided, assembled and installed the stools at the bar. Sprinkler and fire alarms systems were already in place. The existing men’s and women’s restrooms received all equipment to meet required codes as well as all piping, drains and fixtures. The rooftop HVAC unit was provided by the landlord and our subcontractor added all necessary components inside the space.
The restaurant has two kitchens – one accesses the walk-in cooler. Our crews installed the following equipment: A vent hood supplied by Superior Hood; mop, hand and three compartment sinks; a walk-in cooler supplied by Kold Locker Walk-ins; a reach-in cooler and freezer, sandwich unit, beer dispenser and bar cooler supplied by TurboAir; an Ecolab hand washer; a Scotman icemaker; Lancer soda dispenser, stock pot stove and fryer by Vulcan; bar sink and dish table by Eagle Group; an Ad Smith water heater, Old Castle grease trap; a BBQ burner by Mapo Industry along with work tables, shelves, fans and a rice cooker. Many of these items were prepared for installation by the sub-contractor who installed the gas lines.
