CAU - 18 Projects (2011 - 2016)

In order to roll out a steak restaurant within high street locations, a new concept was created within Gaucho.  Following the successful conversion of the Gaucho Restaurant in Damstraat, Amsterdam, CAU was born.  The vision was to create a restaurant that would fit perfectly in the heart of Palermo, Buenos Aires, trying to replicate the spirit, vitality, passion and sense of fun of this area. Buenos Aires captures the soul like no other city.

CTC were appointed to Project and Cost Manage, Design in collaboration with Conceptualise and provide professional Building Surveying advice and Procure all furniture, fixtures and fittings for the first UK CAU site in mid-2010.  Following the successful fit out and opening, CTC were further instructed to provide all these services for the roll out of the CAU brand; some further 22 sites from Southampton to Glasgow.

On all projects, CTC provided nearly all services that CTC can provide across the roll out programme.  CTC were involved from liaison with the property acquisition agent at pre-acquisition stage, reviewing landlord’s technical information, agreeing the demises and monitoring the developers progress or providing assessments of existing building conditions.  CTC collaborated with Conceptualise to produce detailed drawing packages, schedules of works for pricing, gaining all necessary statutory consents, managing the project from start to operational handover and continuing to provide ongoing construction related support.
