Karl Strauss Brewery Restaurant

Project Overview

Michael Wall Engineering, Inc. provided electrical construction documents for the $1.5 million Karl Straus Brewery Restaurant tenant improvement in the 4S Ranch area of San Diego. The facility features a full-service commercial kitchen, restaurant and bar spaces, and a visible operating brewery. Electrical design for the 8,243SF project included power distribution and telecommunications systems, power for the kitchen and bar equipment, power and data monitoring support for the chilled and frozen food storage rooms, and infrastructure for the wireless network and entertainment systems.  Brewery equipment power, controls, and data system requirements were reviewed and coordinated directly with the manufacturers to ensure all needs were met to provide a functional system.  Lighting design incorporated dimmable LED fixtures with digital, multi-scene programmable controls. Additionally, while decorative lighting fixtures at bar, restaurant, and patio entries were chosen for visual appeal, lighting efficiency remained high, resulting in a system rating 26% below California Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
