More about this project

Deal & Betteshanger sports and social club are very much part of the local community needing to upgrade its kitchen facilities.

We were originally asked to refurbish the clubs existing part commercial/part domestic kitchen.
The club was fortunate to have another slightly larger room which was just used for storage and occasional meetings so the decision was made to convert this room instead.
Starting from scratch in a new room made complete sense as the works would have been fairly disruptive to the existing operation. 
This allowed the existing kitchen to continue in use right up to the day before the new kitchen was completed.

We added hygienic wall cladding to all wall surfaces and Altro safety flooring to the floors.
An extraction system for the cooking area was designed and built which included a gas safety interlock system.

Once the construction site of the project was completed the following new equipment was provided and installed.

Client's Testimonial

In 2015 Deal & Betteshanger rugby club, took a decision to substantially upgrade its kitchen facility to a full commercial kitchen status, to allow the club to offer upgraded kitchen and cooking facilities to the local community on an ongoing basis. Our budget was £40,000, we appointed a project manager and a subcommittee to ensure the project was managed professionally and delivered on time. From the various business and commercial business colleagues we have in the club, we decided on a shortlist including Advantage Catering Equipment. Each was invited to the club to view the kitchen site, and to understand the spec from our project manager. We received quotes together with references. From this process, Advantage Catering Equipment was appointed.

Our project manager worked in partnership with Simon Critchett to agree the various phases of work, and project plan, and to agree on a final completion date. We are very pleased to report that the work was undertaken effectively, professionally and within a time-scale and to our budget.

Based on our experience we would recommend Simon Critchett and Advantage Catering Equipment for serious consideration when considering your kitchen requirements.
