SAN ANTONIO - The 54th Street Restaurant & Drafthouse has a growing popularity in San Antonio. The “polished casual,” concept is known for their large selection of “scratch prepared,” menu items as well as 54 draft beers served at 29 degrees and high quality libations using fresh ingredients, made in house daily. The eclectic atmosphere features unique artifacts collected all over the world, an enormous bar with an open keg room and large screen TV’s for watching the next big game. Nana walls open up from the bar area out to the patio with a live open fire-pit and water feature surrounding the area. There is something to see around every corner so that each seat is the best one in the house! It is no wonder that the laid back, eclectic atmosphere draws both young and old alike.


    The Struthoff Company, founded in 1993 by Lynn Struthoff with the objective of providing turn-key commercial construction services, has a history of delivering projects for a wide variety of clients; including restaurants, retail, commercial, medical, industrial, and educational clients. This history, background and experience was instrumental in the successful completion of the project. The new 7,000sf 54th Street Restaurant & Drafthouse is located at Loop 410 and Hwy 281 and took 220 days to construct.
    The project’s scope of work encompassed site development, utilities, landscaping, concrete pad and paving, brick and cultured stone veneer, wood trusses, wood framing, millwork, TPO, standing seam roof, storefront, doors, windows, painting, ceramic tile, carpet, epoxy flooring, fire protection, plumbing, mechanical and electrical.
    “There are always challenges when undertaking a new project for a new client.  Focusing upon a realistic schedule of goals, expectations, and objectives and bringing on board key subcontractors, with their project interest and buy-in to delivering quality on time and on budget are paramount. Finally, having knowledgeable and experienced resources as part of the project team leadership was key,” adds Project Manager, Ryan Klekar.
    The key unique feature of this project was the systematic execution of meeting agreed upon project goals and objectives. This was the overriding and on-going focus of the entire Professional Services, Construction and Ownership Team. “Commitments were made and commitments were met throughout the entire construction cycle. There was a unique synergy and timely communications amongst all the key players that lead this project from start to finish,” says Klekar.
    “The Owner and the Professional Services Members of the Project Team had significant previous similar project construction experience. As a result the construction documents and project requirements were very well defined and communicated and the process was both familiar and well understood.” This strength of background by the Professional Services and Ownership Team Members allowed The Struthoff Project Team Members to really focus upon executing the construction process.
    Klekar and Superintendent, Michael Hengst worked closely with owners, Jason, Michael and Jerit Norsworthy to ensure their continued vision throughout the construction of the project. 
    The Struthoff Company is a full-service turn-key commercial general contractor in San Antonio. -cmw
