Whether it is a chain restaurant with preset standards, a high-end restaurant in a high rise, or a barbecue restaurant with smokers, RTM’s thorough portfolio allows us to provide the right MEP/FP design for any type of restaurant space. Additionally, our knowledge of nationwide codes and standards allows us to accommodate specific state-to-state requirements that affect the MEP/FP systems.

As restaurant design often boils down to the performance of the kitchen, our engineers are experts in designing mechanical systems that effectively control odor and balance pressure, while also providing the proper electrical coordination and tie-ins for the mechanical and kitchen equipment. We actively coordinate with kitchen consultants to deliver efficient kitchens and comfortable environments for the restaurant patrons.
