Project Description


Burgerfi, Raleigh NC: The second unit in a sequence of projects with this concept, RdM Architecture had built its trust and was awarded the design and construction without any competitive bid process. With the same unique blend of materials, RdM Architecture continued to refine design and construction details with the corporate franchise construction managers. With an ‘L’ shaped floor plan, the architect was challenged with a creative resolution of kitchen planning, cook line and service counter. An existing outdoor patio was reconstructed and enhanced with metal wall panels and sliding glass door systems to meet the exterior profile of corporate design directives.

  • The firm’s second restaurant project with this new franchisee required all new HVAC, electrical and plumbing in 2,800 sf space
  • client’s repeat use of a single sourced Integrated Project Delivery
  • Worked with landlord, client and building department during design permitting phases to reclassify building occupancy reducing or eliminating rated wall requirements
  • relocated existing rear exit door and added a second in existing masonry wall, added grease trap system
  • Southern yellow pine 2x4s and perforated metal panels trimmed with black metal angles make the interior wall finishes
  • Polished stained concrete floors, custom chromed meat hook chandeliers and a coated black metal service counter provide additional interior industrial themed elements
  • Black acoustical tiles sit atop perforated metal ceiling panels for the overhead ceiling system providing that industrial look and offering some acoustical value
  • Wood laminated micro beams, 6″ thick weighing 300-500 pounds set on wide flange column legs are used for community style dining options
  • Big Ass fans provide a combination of air movement, visual movement and enhanced industrial aesthetics
