Among the most complex architectural and design projects are those involving restaurants and other food service facilities.

TECTA has a vast amount of experience in helping local restaurants and national chains to develop concepts, coordinate codes, and consultants, as well as orchestrate a successful construction process.

We are proud to have established spaces for the likes of Hubert Keller and his Burger Bar, Martin Yan and his Yan Can Restaurants, Yigit Pura and his Tout Sweet Patisserie and Sammy Hagar and his Tres Agaves Restaurant.

Our Process

Feasibility Studies

With the knowledge gathered from Due Diligence, we study the feasibility of the site and location to fit your program needs.

Entitlements

We negotiate entitlement steps including Staff Level Approval, Planning, Commissions, Design Review Boards, City Councils and Neighborhood Associations.

Site Survey & Due Diligence

We perform Site surveys and Due Diligence early in the process to help you make informed choices and develop budgets early. Existing building constraints must be carefully reviewed so that equipment and utilities can be properly placed.

Prototype Designs

A prototype makes or breaks a concept. How does the concept communicate effectively? Our designers set the language to effectively sell.

Functional Design

We work with your kitchen and operations staff to make all aspects of the restaurant work from cooking to serving to bussing. In addition to building codes and zoning regulations, health department regulations must be adhered to.

Shell Building Design

Good design starts with curb appeal. Whether adapting an existing building to your concept or designing a new shell, our designers make statements.

Construction Drawings and Specifications

We create construction drawings and calculate specifications so your project turns out perfectly.

Roll-Outs

We help you effectively manage multi-unit restaurant roll-outs and schedule milestones important to individual and collective unit openings.

Lighting & System Design

We help to create optimum lighting for the right ambiance and well conditioned spaces for just the right environmental comfort.

Permit Expediting

We have relationships with most building departments and have staff tasked to getting your plans through the building department as quickly as possible.

Construction Administration

We oversee every aspect of construction from start to finish to ensure the best outcome for your project.
