McDonalds Melville – Largest McDonalds Restaurant in WA 2015

After many years and multiple building extensions, décor remodels the McDonalds restaurant at front of Leach Hwy is no more, demolished to expose the brand new, largest McDonalds restaurant in Australia.

ASF involved once more with our long standing valued client to décor fitout their flagship restaurant in his allotment of 5 restaurants to date. This is certainly not a standard off the shelf restaurant with our client trailblazing and putting his own stamp on design.

Just the second McDonalds in WA to have the new burger bar style counter and separate kitchen. Customers can see their burger prepared and cooked right in front of them like the good old days.

The site location allowed the new restaurant to be built at the back of the property while trading continued from the existing restaurant right up to handover date.

This was a very tight program for both builder and ASF to handover on the 17th December 2015. The grand opening night celebrations were planned and booked well in advance by the licensee and never at any stage going to change despite several build variations.

This is the first McDonalds in WA with an exposed open ceiling to the main dining area. Dropdown perforated plywood bulkheads to each dining zone create cosy dining ambience in the otherwise large restaurant. Dining wall and counter décor finishes consisted of natural oak timber lining boards laid in herringbone pattern as well as black japan stain and polar white wall lining boards laid vertically and diagonally in separate dining areas. Clay brick face walls and wall tiles feature throughout.

The main dining area floor was divided up into zones by use of polished hoop pine plywood low walls with black powder coated steel tube feature screens. 

The live plant greenwall in the burger bar is another first for McDonalds in WA.

The teen zone at the rear of the restaurant has hand painted street graffiti complete with skateboards fixed to the wall face.

All servery counter tops and fronts except burger bar front are clad in Caesarstone.

A cooperative working relationship between shopfitter and builder was imperative in making a very successful handover and grand opening night as planned.
