Fast Casual Restaurant Tenant Improvement
Due to an increase in passenger traffic, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority approved the construction of Concourse B at Jacksonville International Airport, which brings six new gates as well as new visitor amenities to the airport. Among the new amenities built was a new BurgerFi restaurant, a craft burger concept which was part of the Authority’s 10-year, $60 million contract with HMSHost, a company that creates dining for travel venues.
C&S’s work on this assignment included architectural design services with interior design support, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering (communication, technical, and fire alarm), plumbing and fire protection design. In-house laser scanning and 3D photography were used to capture the existing conditions. These scans were then converted to a point cloud model, and ultimately used to develop a Revit model that encompassed the existing conditions in order to develop the final product.
The restaurant design includes a simplified palette and commitment to sustainable practices. Furnishings include seating made from upcycled Coke bottles and tables made from 700,000 upcycled milk jugs. Travelers in a hurry can easily make a selection from a grab n’ go area inside. On the service side, efficiency is the focus—operationally and environmentally. The kitchen features all high-efficiency equipment, including a clamshell grill that can prepare up to 24 burgers at once. The project also included a 10-seat, fully accessible bar kiosk and additional dining seating within the adjacent 1180 sf tenant space.
