Giraffe are a fast growing national restaurant group run by Managing Director Russel Joffe with over 46 sites in the UK, including 15 in London.
Over the past 7 years ecsec have built over 30 of the 46 Giraffe sites to date. The latest being in Westfield Stratford. The site was over 4000sq ft in size and situated in the first floor food court. The original programme was 12 weeks but due to planning issues delaying the start date the restaurant was completed in 7 weeks.
The main challenges were the logistics and security, this being due to the shopping centre being next to the Olympic Stadium and the restaurant being located on the first floor food court.
The unique features include a mezzanine which was over 2000 sq ft in size, which had to be craned into position from the ground floor, other features include laser cut screens to the shopfront and cantilevered seat pods over the main bar area.
The project value was £600,000 and took 7 weeks.Click here to download
