Restaurant Renovations: Ensuring Compliance with Proper Ventilation Systems

Essential Fresh Air Ventilation System for General Restaurants Licence

To operate a restaurant, obtaining a ‘Light Refreshment Restaurant License’ is a prerequisite. The installation of a fresh air ventilation system is a crucial aspect of a successful license application. The purpose of the fresh air ventilation system is to exhaust cooking odors from the restaurant while providing fresh air to both the kitchen and dining area.

The specifications and availability of ductwork may vary for each location. When selecting a space, it is essential to have a clear understanding of whether the ductwork infrastructure is adequate to accommodate the appropriate fresh air ventilation equipment.

Specific requirements exist for the quantity of exhaust ducts, size of exhaust outlets, and fire resistance. If there is a presence of black smoke during exhaust, special filtration equipment may be needed for improvement. Trillion Decoration ensures the use of certified and qualified fresh air ventilation systems, enabling a faster restaurant opening for you.

Do general restaurants need to have toilets? Are there limitations on the renovation specifications?

Restaurants are required to have toilets.

Toilet facilities are a necessary component when operating a restaurant. The specific requirements for the number of toilets vary depending on the size of the restaurant and the type of license. Proper water supply, drainage, and ventilation for the toilets are crucial aspects of the overall renovation process. It is essential to engage professional renovators who are experienced in handling these aspects.

What are the requirements for drainage and sewage disposal? Is the renovation expensive?

Water supply refers to the presence of a public water pipe, while sewage disposal refers to the availability of a drainage system in the restaurant.

In general, the availability of public water supply pipes is not a major concern when selecting a space for a restaurant since water supply is considered a basic provision for most commercial units. However, the requirements for drainage systems are more critical. Professional renovators are needed to assess the site conditions and make appropriate judgments in terms of the drainage system during the renovation planning process.

The 5 essential fire safety equipment that every restaurant should know.

Emergency lighting, Sprinkler heads, Escape routes, Emergency doors, Smoke doors.

Emergency lighting is one of the fire safety requirements for a restaurant. During routine fire inspections, it will be checked alongside other fire safety measures. Failure to install emergency lighting according to the specifications can potentially affect the restaurant’s operation.

Sprinkler heads serve the purpose of rapid fire suppression in the event of a fire. They need to be installed before the commencement of the renovation project. Our professional designers ensure that all minute details, including the placement of sprinkler heads, are taken care of in the structural planning phase to comply with fire safety regulations.

For restaurants located above ground floors, proper escape routes and fire-resistant doors must be planned. Fire-resistant doors have specific requirements regarding their dimensions, fire resistance rating, and construction. Trillion Decoration uses high-quality materials that meet the required standards for fire safety, ensuring peace of mind for our clients.

Smoke doors, similar to fire-resistant doors, have specific requirements for dimensions, fire resistance rating, and construction. Depending on specific circumstances, fire authorities may require the installation of a certain number of smoke doors. We have a deep understanding of fire safety requirements in restaurant renovations and can determine how to handle such situations, saving you from wasting additional money and time on incorrect renovation placements.  

Restaurant air conditioning equipment

Ensure that the air conditioning equipment in the restaurant does not create "unauthorized structures" or "illegal constructions."

In general, when renting a commercial space, the premise may provide air conditioning equipment. However, it is important to note that if the air conditioning system in the shop is a “split-type” with an outdoor unit, its installation on the exterior of the building may potentially be considered an unauthorized structure, posing a risk and hindering the progress of license applications. If the premises do not have air conditioning provided, it is necessary to hire a certified structural engineer to oversee the installation process.
