SAMPLING VAN WITH ROOFTOP TERRACE

Fried chicken and Southern Comfort, what's not to love?

Question: Could we convert a lo-loader van into a bar and kitchen complete with a New Orleans style terrace balcony in four weeks? Answer: Of course we could!

London Cocktail Week is understandably one of the capital’s major events, a 'not to be missed' opportunity for beverage brands to showcase their tasty new products.

With such a tight timescale to design, build and deliver this project a creative and energetic whirlwind ensued. The real challenge was to create an invisible lightweight internal steel structure that could support the weight of the roof terrace and not overload the carrying weight of the van. Of course health and safety was the number one priority and all designs had to undergo rigorous examinations and calculations by a structural engineer before it could be signed off.

The project was completed with cnc cut faux metal balustrading, a spiral staircase, and an internal bar with three cocktail work stations. Needless to say we delivered on time and Southern Comfort took London cocktail week by storm.
