Located downtown, the Earls Test Kitchen serves a variety of purposes including staff training and real-time diner engagement. A state-of-the-art audiovisual system allows the public to see live streams of their dishes being prepared and conceptualized throughout the week. In addition to the test kitchen, the project also involved renovations to the second floor space. Smith + Andersen has also provided services for various Earls restaurants in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario.
The electrical upgrade provided a challenge due to insufficient available power. To accommodate this, the electrical design and equipment selection was critical. LED lighting and low energy consumption equipment was procured. Further load testing was performed to ensure loading was adequate.
