Oh’Lola

Hatton Garden, London|1st June 2016|

In the Summer of 2016, RCE Electrical completed electrical installation of an exciting ‘fast-food paella’ restaurant in London. Oh’Lola Spain has several hugely successful restaurants in mainland Europe and looked to Hatton Gardens to open their UK expansion.

Javier Vilanova, CEO at Oh’Lola told Hurford Salvi Carr:

“We present for the first time a modern paella concept, which is highly visual, with massive pans exposed to the public while the food is in preparation, and serving the dish for the first time in branded ready to go boxes.”

The restaurant uses the flamboyant process of cooking paella to the maximum with fully glazed viewing areas into the kitchen from the seating area. This required RCE Electrical to produce lighting effects to showcase this unique feature.

Ibérica

Leeds|1st June 2016|

In May our involvement with Ibérica Leeds came to an end with successful commissioning and opening.

In it’s review the Yorkshire Evening Post stated…

“Walking inside, the former auction house that was once a dark and dingy space has been transformed into a light and airy restaurant, with high ceilings and stunning chandeliers.

The food at Iberica is as impressive as the surroundings, and as we leave, my dining companion tells the staff it’s the best meal she’s ever had in Leeds – and could give a lot of top London restaurants a run for their money too.”

La Feria

Harrogate|16th May 2016|

In May 2016, Spanish restaurant La Feria approached RCE Electrical to complete electrical installation as part of a complete re-fit of their Harrogate location.

The brief from La Feria was to bring the atmosphere of contemporary Spain to Harrogate by reflecting the towns and cities of Andalusia in order to compliment their cuisine: speciality free-range rotisserie chicken infused with the flavours of Spain as well as authentic tapas using the finest authentic ingredients.

After carrying out a thorough survey the location, checking both construction and current ability, RCE Electrical discussed with the client as to what they would ideally like. The team from RCE Electrical then worked with the approved interior layout to design and specify the lighting, security and electrical systems.

“With an intimate atmosphere, the 120 cover La Feria required creative lighting. To do this we built and installed a fully customisable system that can be easily controlled to compliment the required mood and time of day. We also designed and installed a security system that uses both movement sensors and visual monitoring.”

The whole project from design to completion of installation was undertaken within four weeks. The exacting results of the original design brief can be seen in person and on the following photos.

Swarovski

Cardiff|21st November 2015|

Swarovski is widely recognised as the leading producer of cut lead glass fashioned into jewellery, couture, pieces for home decoration and much more. As a brand selling the concept of luxury and glamour, the atmosphere in their retail spaces is particularly important and must fit the signature style which is known throughout the world.

RCE Electrical completed full electrical design and installation of the Swarovski retail space in Cardiff which opened in November 2015. In addition to the power, emergency lighting, CCTV, intruder and fire alarms, perhaps the most important aspect of this installation was the lighting.

In order to display the beautiful creations to maximum effect, RCE Electrical worked closely with Swarowski to meet their requirements and then on completion of the job, we also worked with the shop staff to ensure that once the shop furniture was in place, the lighting effectively displayed the stunning jewellery and sparkling design pieces.
