The project

ISG was appointed to deliver the interior fit out of the top-tier restaurant, which spans an area of approximately 2,600 sq ft. We created an elegantly crafted bar, exclusive dining area for 70 persons and a fully operational kitchen. The restaurant was designed by a world-renowned interior design firm, Yabu Pushelberg.

The new venue posed an interesting challenge to our team, which involved the installation of a custom-made 700 sq ft wine cellar to house a storage and showcase display of over 1,700 exclusive wine bottles. The team worked to stringent requirements to ensure optimum cooling measures and climate attributes to preserve the wine collection at optimum conditions.

Working with a dedicated kitchen vendor, our team was also responsible for the full fit out and installation of kitchen specialist equipment including cocktail station, hot water heaters, ovens, combi steamer, chillers, etc.

The project required high-specification and bespoke design expected for an upscale dining venue, finished with premium quality and fine details. ISG delivered the job within a fast-tracked programme of 16 weeks, and achieved high customer satisfaction at handover.

"I am very satisfied with ISG’s quality workmanship, overall service delivery and design management on site. The team is focused on delivering the best quality outcomes and is highly committed to completing the project on time and providing great value for money. Our issues on site were dealt with very quickly and the team provided us with solutions and alternatives for us to consider. ISG provided good construction service. The team was flexible to accommodate our additional requests and I think that shows that they put customer first. I will definitely consider working with them and highly recommend them to others."
