ENSURING GREAT ACOUSTICS FOR RESTAURANTS
Located in the historic quarter of Halifax, Julio's can be found opposite the town hall. Serving up delicious Italian cuisine, the restaurant has recently undergone a significant refurbishment.
Before approaching us to help with his first installation some time ago, Julio had invested in another solution, which he hoped would reduce the noise-levels in the restaurant. Unfortunately, the solution he put in place via another company didn't do the trick, which is when Julio initially sought our advice to provide an alternative.
His words to us were simply: 'I just want something that works'. He didn't realise at that point that it could blend in with his decor, while making a statement, too.
The acoustic transformation began in Julio's secluded dining area. Of course, he was thrilled with the result and later commissioned us to provide similar acoustic solutions in his main dining area and bar.
Since the restaurant's refurbishment, Julio told us noise reverberation had become a problem and he fast needed a solution to ensure it wouldn't hinder his customers' dining experience. After contacting a company previously but discovering the solution they presented him with didn't solve the problem, Julio was keen to see firm results.
It's important that the customer is heavily involved in the selection of colours and styles, to ensure their aesthetic needs are met. It's also vital we build a fully working solution that offers practicality while looking great. We aim for satisfied clients and referrals over a quick sale, and in Julio's case, we worked in his secluded dining area to prove the concept. Impressed with the result, he went on to commission us to cover the main dining area.
Once that was complete, Julio had a vision for something striking in the bar area - and together we came up with a map of Italy. As with all our installs, there's the option to ensure practicality meets style - and Julio and the team decided to go all-out on both fronts, with a map of Italy comprising acoustic tiles now ensuring diners can enjoy their visit to Julio's.
A unique installation which brings authentic, Italian style into the restaurant while also ensuring it meets the venue's needs on a practicality level, Julio hoped the design scheme and layout would make a statement - and we're sure you'll agree it does just that! In fact, we're pretty certain that a tile installation like this must be the only one like it in the world!
Creating a five-metre-long map of Italy out of tiles, our team installed the hugely eye-catching acoustics, which have since got customers talking ( and snapping photos for social media!), as well as solved Julio's issues.
julio commented "I'm thrilled with the results and my customers can't stop talking about the improved ambience. Stuart and his team worked closely with us to produce attractive and imaginative solutions to our noise issues."
