Commercial Kitchen re fit March 2020

Complete new Commercial Kitchen in 10 days

We were recommended to the client by one of our suppliers.

After a brief phone conversation we travelled to site to meet the Owner and the Head Chef.

We discussed their brief and gained an understanding of the timescales  and budget.

With Chris , our lead project manager , having  nearly 20 years hands on experience  as Head Chef and owner of multiple successful restaurateurs we were able to identify the pinch pints in the current very busy kitchen. This was achieved by watch the kitchen and the staff in a very busy service.

After a number of discussions about the clients expectations , evaluating a number of proposed layouts the client had   and offering up our outline proposals we were commissioned to undertake the project.

The complete gutting of the kitchen was being undertaken at the same time as a complete overhaul to the front of house and external areas. Working along side their designer we undertook responsibility for  the entire kitchen project ( less running new electrical services )

As soon as the work was agreed we produced full 3D drawings , which enabled the client to visulaise  the new kitchen. These drawings lead to a number of small revisions resulting from our discussions with the Chef about layout and with the site owner increasing slightly the  budget to get the specification of equipment Chef requested.

As soon as the layout was signed off , we produced full service drawings and arranged a meeting with the clients electrical contractor.
