High impact, high quality

Sustainable cafes and restaurants

Design and build of sustainable modular cafes and restaurants that make a high impact statement amongst your customers. The restaurant industry is set to develop low carbon menu choices – choices that will be far more impactful if they are consumed in a low carbon restaurant or café premises.

The unique curves of our ARC building design mimic forms found in nature, which we pair with a naturally light-filled space and connections to nature, to create an uplifting and welcoming experience.

Our architect-designed, modular engineered approach enables us to offer cafes and restaurants that are cost-effective, bespoke and built much more quickly than traditional construction. Our proven production process ensures you receive a highly robust modular café built to precise standards that exceeds building regulations.

We build approximately 95% of the cafe offsite, meaning that there is minimal disruption to your ongoing business. We are usually only onsite for delivery and installation for a matter of a few days. Our modular cafés can also be connected to other ARC sections and existing buildings using glazed link sections and covered walkways. The modular design, whilst no less robust or permanent than traditional buildings, means that our buildings can be demounted and relocated to another site in the future.

Modular cafe design

We work with every client on a custom design consultation to ensure that all requirements are factored in from the start.

We know that café design requirements will vary considerably from client to client. We offer a lot of flexibility in our modular cafe design, and we’ll work with you to understand the needs for your space, including discussing expected footfall, catering style (is all food freshly prepared or pre-packaged?), dining style etc, in order to design and build a unique café that delivers what you need.

Energy efficient and low carbon

Our design is as focused on aesthetics as it is on creating a highly energy efficient and sustainable building with low embodied carbon and excellent energy efficiency.

We use high levels of insulation and focus on the building’s airtightness in order to maximise energy efficiency and reduce your running costs.

We can also incorporate renewable energy solutions, such as solar PV or heat pumps, into the café design, if required.
