5FiVE is a new juice bar which opened on the Colchester Business Park in October 2019. This innovative, forward thinking and vibrant new concept bar is the brainchild of businessman Richard Triolo, born from his own health and fitness journey. It offers an extensive menu of specially blended juices, smoothies, shakes, shots, coffee and teas to drink-in or takeaway as well as healthy snacks and treats to enjoy or to grab and go for later.
GS Contracts’ Kevin Hill worked with Richard on the design of the bar and within 4 weeks our team had completed a strip-out of the space, which had previously been used as an office, and installed a completely new shop front, a wall to separate the prep area, laid new floor coverings, installed all new LED light fittings, designed, manufactured and installed the units to the prep area, including Hi-Macs work tops, and the shop fitting units to the front including counter, wall and base units, seating and tables. Phew!
There were a few tricky aspects to the fit-out, not least that the space is set on a crescent and doesn’t have any right-angles! Fitting all the necessary equipment in was also no easy task.
“GS Contracts has been great and Kevin in particular has been incredible! I absolutely trusted him to lead us in the right direction. I am a very happy customer.”
Once the bulk of our work was completed, we worked with Richard’s direct contractors who installed the signage, security system and artwork to the walls, and as a finishing touch we had bespoke monitor brackets manufactured for the colourful menu boards, which we also installed.
We’re extremely proud to have brought Richard’s vision of a compact, clean and colourful juice bar to fruition, and Richard is over the moon too, telling us, “GS Contracts has been great and Kevin in particular has been incredible! I absolutely trusted him to lead us in the right direction. I am a very happy customer.”
5FiVE is at 707 The Crescent within Colchester Business Park, open from 7am to 8pm daily on weekdays and 7am to 4pm on weekends. Drop in to admire the décor and try a smoothie!
