Over the past two decades, we’ve built our business and reputation on word-of-mouth and repeat clients, whose multiple projects have helped us become qualified subject-matter experts in designing and building restaurants, bars and food hall concepts. No matter what role we’ve been hired to fill, Interstruct cares deeply about great design, placemaking and truth in materials.
Here are 10 reasons why you can trust Interstruct for your next hospitality project.
A member of the executive team is assigned to oversee every project, beginning to end.
.02 SENIOR PROJECT MANAGERS
Interstruct’s in-house team of professionals includes dedicated project managers with longevity and deep knowledge in the construction industry.
.03 SUBJECT-MATTER EXPERTS
Ryan Young and Rich Monroe have built dozens of restaurants, bars and coffee shops since founding Interstruct in 2001. Projects have included national brands such as Chipotle and hyper local restaurants and bars that help make cities vibrant places to live. Current projects of note include construction of the food hall project called Bumby Arcade at Church Street Station in Orlando and Free the Cork Wine Bar at Sparkman Wharf in Tampa under the leadership of Interstruct president Matt Cotticchio.
.04 INTERIOR EXPERTS
Interstruct was founded on high-end interior jobs. This is our sweet spot and we’ve played every curve ball possible in all settings, from building ground-up shells to repurposing existing buildings into food halls, restaurants, bars and coffee shops.
.05 REPEAT CLIENTS
We are proud of our long-term relationships with repeat clients who trust Interstruct’s knowledge, professionalism, problem solving, communication, deep understanding of permitting issues, partnership with valued trades and subcontractors, clean and tidy job sites, commitment to safety, adherence to schedules and budgets and on-time delivery of projects.
.06 SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE
Interstruct understands the specialized needs of restaurant and bar construction that are related to water, gas and electric and the unique back-of-house requirements to support specialized kitchen and bar equipment.
.07 DESIGN + BUILD
We are here to tell you, there’s a better way to build. Interstruct has developed a streamlined, single-point-of-contact design-build process that covers your entire project with a single contract. We guarantee that our design-build system will eliminate the headaches, heartaches and general BS from your restaurant or bar buildout.
.08 ATTENTION TO DETAIL
We are sticklers for craftsmanship, cleanliness and attention to detail. For instance, every open duct is sealed in blue plastic to ensure they stay clean until connected. Our electricians bend pipe like an artform. We like straight conduit and duct work. When you hire Interstruct, you get a high quality, professional job every time.
.09 SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY
Interstruct has always placed the highest priority on workplace safety and a clean, neat job site. A job site that is clean promotes a safe work environment and represents the level of professionalism that we demand.
.10 BUILDING COMMUNITY
We are passionate about hyper local businesses, especially those in the food and beverage industry. We care about what goes into neighborhoods and also being a good neighbor during construction. We deeply understand the direct correlation between a dining establishment and its impact on local quality of life. Our restaurant clients trust Interstruct to begin the community building, even before there’s a menu.
