Client Overview

Randall & Aubin is an Anglo-French brasserie famous for its simple but sumptuous menu of seafood and meat dishes.

It was established as a butchers’, in Soho, London, in 1911, selling only the best produce. In 1996, opened its own restaurant, which serves the freshest seafood and rotisserie meats, with premium ingredients from carefully-chosen suppliers.

It opened a second restaurant, in Manchester, which was the brainchild of the Soho restaurant’s cofounders, renowned chef Ed Baines and restauranteur Jamie Poulton.

Our Work

PCPM was tasked with the installation of air conditioning and ventilation systems to the restaurant and back of house areas.

This was a challenging install, because most of the duct work is on show within the dining area, so needed to complement the overall look and visual appeal of the high-end restaurant.

We needed to ensure that the kitchen extract duct was installed within the building’s internal light well and discharged at high level to prevent cooking smells seeping into the dining area.

We also needed to ensure the duct was painted to match the exterior wall.

The Outcome

This was a great job to work on.

It’s an extremely high-end restaurant for a business with a rich history in an industry where the details matter, so it’s crucial we got it right.

There were a few limitations and other issues in terms of the space we had to work with and the problems we had to find solutions for, but it was something we were able to do and the end results look stunning.

We believe we offer something completely unique and original to the Manchester restaurant, so it was absolutely crucial that we got every detail right when it came to creating a Randall & Aubin in Manchester.

It became clear early on that the ducts would have to become a part of the overall aesthetic of the restaurant, but there were also practical issues that needed to be addressed.

PCPM were very professional throughout – they helped to design and specify the job to ensure all of these issues were fixed and carry out the install to an extremely high standard.
