Our company specializes in providing MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design services for commercial and residential projects. We were chosen to design the MEP systems for the second floor and rooftop remodel of Mozambique, a popular restaurant located in Laguna Beach, California. This remodel included the addition of a new bar, extra seating, and a concert venue. The goal of the project was to create a comfortable and functional space for the restaurant’s customers, while also ensuring that all the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were safe and efficient. Our team worked closely with the architects and contractors to ensure that the design met the specific needs of the restaurant and comply with all local building codes and regulations. We had to take into account the additional loads and power required for the new bar and concert venue and design the systems accordingly. The end result was a beautiful and functional space that met all the restaurant’s needs, including the concert and entertainment aspect of the venue. Our company is proud to have been a part of this project and we look forward to more opportunities to provide our expertise in MEP design.
