Overcoming communication obstacles to open premier Japanese restaurant in Australia

April 25, 2016 Laura McDaniel

When Ippudo, a premiere Japanese ramen restaurant chain owned by Chikaranomoto, decided to open a restaurant in Australia’s new Central Park development, JLL was tapped to provide project management for the fit-out of the new restaurant. Although communication transpired through a translator and the design for the project was carried out in Japan, the local JLL project team worked around these communication barriers and adapted the design to the Australian standards, while still maintaining the original design’s character and intent. Not only was Ippudo thrilled with the overall look and design of the restaurant, but the project team was able to bring the project costs down through multiple value engineering sessions, saving nearly AU$150,000 without sacrificing any functionality.
