Apex General Contractors' Success with Yolanda's Mexican Cafe Renovation

Yolanda’s Mexican Cafe has long been a beloved culinary institution, cherished for its rich flavors and inviting atmosphere. When it came time for a revitalization, Apex General Contractors embarked on a transformative journey to breathe new life into this cherished establishment. The Yolanda’s Mexican Cafe renovation project stands as a testament to Apex’s dedication to excellence in commercial construction and their commitment to preserving heritage while embracing innovation.

The Yolanda’s Mexican Cafe renovation project was a comprehensive endeavor, encompassing a complete demolition and rebuilding of all finishes, including the rear patio and roof structure. Structural reinforcement of existing masonry walls was deemed necessary, and Apex proposed an innovative solution: reinforcing with Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) instead of traditional structural steel, resulting in cost savings without compromising strength. This approach exemplifies Apex’s ingenuity and commitment to finding creative solutions to complex challenges.

Apex General Contractors spared no effort in ensuring that every aspect of the renovation reflected the essence of Yolanda’s Mexican Cafe. A brand-new kitchen and bar area were meticulously constructed, equipped with state-of-the-art amenities to elevate the culinary experience. Custom woodworking details adorned the space, adding a touch of craftsmanship and authenticity. Throughout the restaurant, custom murals depicting scenes of Mexican culture and heritage were meticulously painted, infusing the space with color and vibrancy.

In addition to the aesthetic enhancements, Apex General Contractors undertook critical structural and mechanical upgrades to ensure the safety and functionality of the space. Seismic retrofitting of the roof diaphragm and steel reinforcement of new window openings were implemented to enhance structural integrity. Furthermore, all existing Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) base building systems were upgraded to modern standards, ensuring optimal performance and efficiency.
