The Bar Louie restaurant design project is located in downtown Owensboro, KY in the newly renovated BB&T building. The location is about a 4 hour drive from our St. Louis branch offices. This new building is a glass curtain and steel project that houses the call center for Alorica (who recently purchased their refrigerated equipment from Rapids). The lower floor of the building is designed for retail and contains the Bar Louie project.
As part of the renovation, Rapids took multiple trips to the location for field checks, equipment and facility installation, as well as courtesy follow up trips including their Black Friday opening. Rapids Contract and Design’s involvement included value engineering the project, procuring the commercial cooking and dispensing equipment, and equipment installation. It was a pretty typical job site and install process for our St. Louis branch.
We are very pleased with the results of this project, and it was a great honor working with the Bar Louie team throughout the process.
