About Mikel Coffee

For this project, our first task was to create a clean slate for successful construction. The existing location began as a combination of two different stores. Our team fully cleared the interior, exposing the load-bearing wall separating the two units, which we worked with our trusted Engineers to demolish. We then installed structural beams and columns, concealing them within the ceiling and walls.

We were one step closer to making our client’s customized vision a reality. We moved forward by carefully completing the layout of the entire store. At this point, our priority was to ensure that the engineered drawings corresponded to onsite measurements, which required close attention to detail.

Next, our crew completed the framing which allowed our subtrades to immediately follow behind. Our highly experienced team of Electricians, HVAC Technicians and Plumbers worked efficiently to complete the rough-in phase of the project.

The team installed drywall, and taped and primed the interior partition walls and ceiling after rough-in inspections were conducted and passed. We had at last approached the finishing stages, bringing the space to life.

Our skilled team installed a variety of high-end finishes which included custom millwork. These touches are seen in the solid oak beams above the cash desk, the white oak veneers on the face of the cash desk and wood slat feature wall, and a beautiful stitched white oak veneer wall feature with a herringbone pattern. We also completed brick veneer on the walls and fireplace, and subway tile behind the cash desk.

The barrier-free, universal washroom features ceramic tile on the floor and walls, with recessed acoustical ceiling tile above. The washroom is painted, featuring custom Mikel franchise graphics for flair. When we received the Mikel franchise equipment from Greece, our crew installed the kitchen and prepared the store for final inspection.

The project closed according to plan with the final building inspections conducted and passed, including those for health and food safety. Our client’s new adventure in business and life was ready to begin.

Brogden's Restaurant,

Before this project began, the existing style of Brogden’s Restaurant was that of a 60’s-style diner. Masterstrux created and implemented a design that would add a slick, up-to-date twist to the area while maintaining its original fun, bright atmosphere.

About Brogden's Restaurant

We tackled remodelling head on with a full demolition of the interior. This included a complete interior gut of the dining room area, removing the stage, back wall, tile, laminate, T bar and electrical components. Our deconstruction also extended to the washrooms and plumbing fixtures.

Next, we removed a wall at the back of the existing restaurant to create a dramatic open-space concept, making functional room for the new bar.

Once demolition was complete, the walls were exposed. Behind them, we discovered that some of the existing framing and plumbing was inadequate for new construction. The owners were immediately informed, and we were able to repair the deficiencies in a timely manner alongside new construction.

Our team framed the first drywall ceiling, which would be the backdrop for the new floating clouds to be installed underneath. Then, we installed the new ductwork and connected it to the main rooftop unit.

The clouds were framed and intricately installed to create the exact spacing and leveling required to satisfy the custom design. Drywall was then applied to the clouds, and we could see the restaurant’s new, improved form begin to take shape.

With the ceilings complete, we constructed the fireplace, feature column, bar, washrooms and baseboards. After two coats of paint and a professional interior clean, we finished the project with custom millwork, stained shiplap, ledgestone, luxury vinyl tile, stainless steel baseboard, ceramic tile and beautiful custom artwork painted by our skilled designer.

The final touches were in place, and Brogden’s Restaurant reopened its doors to show off its refreshed look to both new and returning guests. With Masterstrux’s help, the restaurant will continue to serve satisfied customers for decades to come.
