Project: Simon Pearce Restaurant Renovations/Addition
Description: Extensive kitchen renovations and small addition
Owner: Simon Pearce
Architect: Robson/Bilgen Architects

The extensive renovation and rehab of the Simon Pearce Restaurant provided a broad range or challenges and demanded extensive pre-construction planning coupled with exacting execution on an extremely tight timeline. Since this project entailed closing a working restaurant for the shortest possible time, Estes & Gallup entered the project very early to work as a team with the engineer, architect, and owner to fit all work within a six week period. Every day that the restaurant was closed, Simon Pearce was losing money, as they had made the commitment to pay and retain their staff during the hiatus in operation. Estes & Gallup took care of the permitting process which was particular extensive as the structure is part of the Vermont historical register. When the restaurant closed everything was staged and ready to go. Then after gutting key portions of the building Estes & Gallup constructed a new prep kitchen, an internal stairwell, a three-floor dumb waiter, and banquet kitchen. To complete the job Estes & Gallup completely renovated the main kitchen.
