Restaurant & Hospitality Fitouts
Transform your restaurant or hospo venue with a fitout from the experts
Give your diners a restaurant experience to remember
When you dine-in at a restaurant - whether it's an inner city laneway trattoria or a suburban steakhouse - the experience is what people take home with them. When your venue is designed thoughtfully in a way that includes style, function and sophistication, the entire dining experience is elevated.
Canopy works with you to understand your hospitality needs and then designs and constructs a fitout for your restaurant that will leave tongues wagging. Engage your diners as well as your staff with a workspace that functions with efficiency and sophistication.
We work with your budget, not the other way round. Canopy's team of designers and architects will create a bespoke hospitality fit out for your restaurant that will add to Melbourne's thriving dining scene.
We understand that fitouts can be a lengthy process if not thoroughly planned out. So we do as much heavy lifting as possible before commencing site work. This means:
- Mocking up design variations quickly within our in-house design team. Applying changes as necessary
- Where possible, working with local suppliers with shorter lead times on furniture, joinery, and other materials
- Manufacturing the build off-site as much as physically possible, to reduce time-on-site
- Clear upfront pricing, with solutions that work within your budget, not outside of it.
- If you need to apply for a new building or planning permit, we can sort that out for you as well
It’s all about the process!
Our Consultant and Designer meet with you to discuss your business fitout needs and get a clear perspective on your vision. We will discuss your requirements and what challenges you are currently facing with your workspace; whether it’s a size issue, a functionality improvement or simply a workspace update, we will work with you to find the most suitable commercial fitout solution for your requirements and budget.
We prepare proposals based on the brief from the initial meeting where we go through and plan the look and feel of the proposed business fitout project. This is where we get feedback from you so we can proceed to the next step. We offer cost effective solutions for an affordable fitout, so your budget is always top of mind.
All costs are agreed upon during this stage and the outline of the project and timelines are discussed. We organise all relevant permits to be approved and issue you with a final Construction Set, Fixtures and Finishes Schedule and a Project Schedule.
We carefully source and recruit the right contractors for each fitout construction job. We work with our team of Designers and suppliers to ensure consistency across the look and feel of the project, and conduct weekly site visits with you so you can check in on the fitout and how it is coming together.
At completion, we conduct a handover to you after ensuring you’ve had a thorough walk through of the new space and make sure you are happy with your completed project. We continue to work with you to take care of any additional needs and ensure they are resolved in readiness for your relocation.
Canopy was recommended to us not only for their quality of work, but also for their quality of service character. We recently completed the renovation phase of our project with Karl and team. We have been extremely pleased with their collaborative approach, transparency, pro-activity, and expertise. We were set up for a challenge as renovation works coincided with the lock-down period in March/April but the team has overcome it with their efficiency and delivered as promised.

How much does a new restaurant fitout cost?
Restaurant fitouts can range anywhere between $1500 and $3000 per square meter. Depending on your needs and scale of the project, we work with you to create a fitout for your hospitality venue that is in line with your budget. We offer affordable Design and Construction services, and service all restaurants, cafes, bars and other venues in Melbourne and across Victoria.
How long does a fitout take?
This all depends on the size of the fitout project, the complexity of the hospitality venue space and the types of finishes you choose. As a general rule, large projects usually range between 8-10 weeks from initial consultation through to completion, and small projects usually range between 4-6 weeks.
We will provide you with a project schedule once initial consultations have been finalised and the fitout project has been scoped by our Designers and Architects, so you’ll never come across any surprises.
Why should I consider a new fitout for my restaurant, bar or cafe?
There are many reasons to update the interior of your workplace. Whether you’re looking to improve the functionality of your restaurant floorspace, need to upgrade the efficiency of your bar space, or want to give your cafe a fresher more modern look and feel, the end result will be your staff and customers feeling much more at ease and relaxed in a bespoke hospitality venue that has been designed and finished with style.
Previous clients of ours have come to us to report that after their new fitout their employees are much more productive, happy and engaged in the workplace, which will only benefit your hospitality venue’s bottom line.
