Snooty Fox Café, Shalford

Job description:

Complete fit out of retail premises including fitting industrial kitchen and bespoke shop fitting.

About the project:

The premises was formerly a Toy shop which comprises the basement and ground floor of a period building in the heart of the village. We worked from the outset with Designers STAMP Design to work out the best use of space for the new restaurant. The property was stripped back to bare shell and completely re-wired, re-plumbed with new gas, aircon, kitchen extraction, fire and intruder alarm installed.

We then worked up the design with a mix of reclaimed and cutting edge materials to create the bespoke look the client wanted to achieve.

Project Challenges:

Due to the location of the premises access and deliveries had to be carefully scheduled so as not to obstruct traffic and compromise the other business premises in the vicinity. Keeping the finished product a surprise from patrons meant vigilance and discretion had to be upheld at all times. Working solidly over Christmas to meet the exacting deadlines and keeping workforce motivated played a huge part in the success of the finished article.

“Full refurbishment and bespoke shop fitting of our business premises in less than seven weeks with the highest possible quality. Toms attention to detail and his passion to create yet still keep to the deadline is rare.”

What our customers say

ALCO, under the guidance and leadership of Tom Allen, did a superb job in the renovation of my son and daughter’s house in Guildford. Everything was completed on time, to the required standard and within budget. Tom’s project management skills are excellent and he has a fine team of tradesmen supporting him. We were consulted at all stages of the project on progress and there were no surprises. A great team performance and I would highly recommend ALCO to anyone about to undertake a building project, large or small.

George Wilson

Tom (ALCO) provided many detailed quotes (and showed a lot of patience as the project changed as it went along) and delivered a good service and finish – particularly pleasing as most of the work was done without me being around. Any issues we did have were remedied quickly and Tom showed commitment to providing customer satisfaction.

Jane Muggeridge

ALCO have now done a few jobs for us ranging in size and price. Each time we find then to be reasonably priced, good communicators and a good standard of finish. Have recommended to a number of people who have all been positive.
