More about this project

A large local theatre and music venue that we have had the pleasure of dealing with for many years.
One of their busy kitchen’s combination ovens, after 10 plus years of service, had suffered a catastrophic failure and needed replacing.

This site is located on many levels and access to the kitchen is via a couple of small freight elevators.
As their requirement was for two new large gas combi ovens we had to be millimeter perfect on whether the ovens would fit in the lifts as there was little in the way of alternative routes for such a heavy piece of equipment.

The equipment was delivered early morning and unpacked in the main auditorium area before we started the move to the kitchen two floors below. The oven doors had to be temporarily removed and 4 men were needed to move the equipment.

We supplied the following kitchen equipment

2 x Rational SCCWE201 Combi Ovens
Rational are clear market leaders in what they and were an obvious choice for this busy site. The machines are excellent and in our experience the support, if needed, is outstanding.

10 x Rational finishing system trolleys
Being a busy banqueting site that can cater for up to 700 the use of the Rational finishing system was vital allowing the kitchen to part plate hundreds of meals in advance of service.

Installation, testing and commissioning took most of the day but all went to plan.
Post-installation we arranged a couple of chef training sessions to ensure that the client was getting the best out of their two new machines.
