Irish Pub Company Methodology
The starting point is acquiring a suitable site. This could be an existing building or a green field site. Once this has been confirmed, the Irish Pub Company is called in and a representative of Irish Pub Company visits the site.
This site visit allows the Irish Pub Company representative the opportunity to view the site first hand and to discuss in greater detail with the client, his/her particular design requirements.
Following this site visit, Irish Pub Company will prepare a design proposal and quotation. This design proposal is comprised of detailed authentic renderings of how the pub will appear.
For a set cost, the Irish Pub Company will:
- Design the pub interior and exterior
Project manage the manufacture of all elements that constitute the pub
Manufacture all elements including:
- joinery (woodwork)
- light fixtures
- floor finishes
- walls and ceiling finishes
- feature work
- external treatment
- Transport the pub and install the pub
Once the design and quotation is agreed upon, contracts are signed. The detailed design of the pub and the manufacture process commences.

- - Removal of all existing fixtures and fittings and all other demolition works

Types of Services
The "hassle-free" nature of our design and build services appeals to many potential pub operators. We do nonetheless provide some varieties of this service to clients who possess the requisite skills and wherewithal to co-ordinate certain aspects of the construction process. Some commonly used options are as follows.
Design & Manufacture only with local Fit-Out
In this scenario, the IPCo will design the entire pub, fabricate the pub fixtures in Ireland, transport the pub to the site where it is installed locally under IPCo supervision.
In this scenario, IPCo can provide a range of design services whereby the project is designed and specified by IPCo but is manufactured and installed in its entirety locally.
Timescale & Cost
From contract to completion, the turnaround time is normally approximately eighteen weeks. This includes the preparation of detailed design drawings, the manufacture of pub fixtures, fittings and furniture, shipping and the final fit-out.
The cost of any pub depends on a number of factors- the size of the pub, the design style, the configuration of major cost elements such as pub front, bar counter and back bar.
A fixed price can only be given once a design proposal has been prepared but in practice, the Irish Pub Company normally designs a pub to match the client's budget.
