The Protech Hub is a collaboration of Designers, Chefs, Hospitality Fit-out and Equipment specialists with the ultimate goal of building your business to be a profitable destination that your customers choose to return to, again and again.
Our Specialists are working together to create ‘handcrafted’ Retail and Hospitality solutions for all your business projects.
KREATIV – Kreativ Design was founded in 2012 with the idea that the design of a venue lies at the heart of a creating a new business and it proofed increasingly difficult to outsource the ever-increasing workload and demands and specialised information needed that not many designers were capable of delivering.
Concept Design including floor layouts and mood boards, is really the starting point and creative part of the design and brings the project to life for the customer.
We spend many working hours on this process and bring our customers to the table to really test the first drafts so that all aspects of the layout is being considered and can be locked in for the next step. We build up a design model that becomes the blueprint for the overall concept and we work hard to show the amazing features of a new design in our 3D software so as to amaze our clients and make them feel the design as if it was already in existence.
This initial part of the design allows us to estimate a budget price for the construction aspect of the design and now both the designer and client have a rough road map concerning costs and timelines.
Now is the time to choose cost effective or more expensive materials and we can monitor the budget as we go along. This meticulous process certainly leaves less room for surprises at the end!
The Documentation stage of the design with the approved concept floor plan, mood boards and budget, is where the KREATIV DESIGN team details and documents all aspects of the project into a package for construction and fit out and then starts the approval process (usually a CDC – Compliance Development Certificate or Private certifier).
At this stage of the design, our equipment specialist from PCK – Protech Commercial Kitchens will introduce the brands that were originally only specified by size and functionality. Now they become a real brand with prices and availability as a consideration and through this process, the design takes another major step towards final completion and handover to the fitout and construction company, Protech Hospitality Fitouts.
The original PHF was founded by a Swiss engineer who was really passionate about ventilation and exhaust systems and the manufacture of stainless steel benches, cool rooms and refrigeration.
In 2006, Protech Hospitality Fitouts became the specialist Fit-out and Construction company that it is still to this date and it continues to deliver all of our Fit-out projects on time and budget and with the utmost care and fine tuning that the designer specified.
Many of our clients have voiced the need for a Start-Up service that could assist them with things like finding staff, suppliers, small wares, training manuals, POS systems, marketing and social media and most importantly, becoming profitable.
