Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen
As part of a design team, C&S provided the mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), fire protection, and structural engineering design for a complete interior fit-out renovation and exterior alterations of a restaurant at Universal Orlando’s CityWalk. The renovation consisted of over 18,000 square feet of front-of-house space, exterior and patio renovation, and nearly 4,000 square feet of back-of-house storage and office space.
Structural efforts included the expansion of the entry way of the facility along with extensive façade modifications and prop support. Within the facility, several second floor areas were infilled to provide more second floor space and another area opened up to allow for a thematic stair. Areas of the roof were raised to allow for further theming above and intricate theming hung below.
Mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and plumbing efforts included fully remodeled kitchens, new bar service, additional roof drainage and modification to existing rain leaders, all new HVAC equipment, revised thematic lighting, coordination with several themed element vendors, and new fire sprinkler layout. Radiant heating, lighting, ceiling fans, fire sprinkler coverage, and drainage were provided for the new exterior dining canopy.
