GJ Custom Contracting


The Smoke Eatery Collingwood

GJ Custom Contracting was contracted by the owner and chef of The Smoke to completely transform a former retail space into what is now a traditional, award-winning BBQ featuring indoor BBQ smokers made possible through a custom-designed HVAC system.
When the client contacted GJ Custom Contracting, they were armed with plans for the design, but knew they had a formidable job ahead. The GJ Custom Contracting team took over the lead to manage the project from start to finish, while keeping the client informed along the way.
The client wanted to put their personal stamp on the restaurant, so they brought in an interior designer for assistance in selecting design elements and colours. The GJ team worked closely with the interior designer to ensure the client’s vision was realized. Custom elements created by the GJ Custom Contracting team include an impressive staircase with corrugated metal railing.
The project required coordination with other sub-trades for specific construction and interior finishing elements, so GJ Custom Contracting remained in close contact with all sub-trades through to project completion.
The Smoke Eatery remains a popular destination in downtown Collingwood for locals and visitors alike.
