More about this project

The pay attention to the detail both on the food, delivery and presentation and even if you have no cooking experience at all a fine dining experience can be achieved by the home enthusiast.

We were contracted to provide a design that incorporated dry, fresh and frozen goods in, separate prep areas for meat, fish and vegetables, a general cooking area and a combi oven cooking area, a blast chilling zone, goods out chilled storage, a packaging area and a pot washer and waste area.
The customer new premises are an empty 200 square meter warehouse on an industrial estate, so a blank canvas for us.
After a detailed consultation with the customer and the usual layout drawing revisions a layout was agreed and works started.

The Central Production Unit (CPU) Build started with ground works are there was one drainage point in the building, in totally the wrong location.
Mini diggers were used both internally and externally to dig in new drainage back to a drain cover at the from of the building.
With this work done and flooring made good we prepared the complete flooring area and applied Altro Tect, a robust slip resistant resin coating.

Two extraction canopies were requires, one 5m long and the other 8 meters, both linked to extract plant located on the roof.
Gas pipework was run nearly 30m across the building to form a gas manifold as over half of the cooking appliances were gas.
The gas system was then interlocked to both extract and fresh air fans.

We installed 2 Megaflow hot water systems and completed all copper pipework for H&C water systems within the building.
Waste pipework into the new floor drainage was all taken back through a large mechanical EPAS grease trap to ensure water regulations compliance.

Whilst extract canopy works were underway we then started on the formation of dedicated food prep and storage areas with timber and plasterboard stud walls all clad in Bioclad Upvc hygienic wall cladding, with some walls only half height to allow better staff supervision from the main cooking area.
Next a large cold room and freezer room were constructed followed by the delivery and installation of a large number of stainless steel benches and sinks and all of the commercial cooking appliances.
