Design, supply and installation of a new function and main kitchen, plus the refurbishment of the remaining kitchen facilities for this stylish boutique hotel. 

This project began with the demolition, removal and refurbishment of much of the old kitchen facility. Decking and carpet protection were provided, alongside new plumbing and electrical services. 

In the function kitchen, Court Catering Equipment stripped out the old equipment for safe disposal, installed new ventilation including a fresh air make-up system, a dishwash condense system, fire suppression equipment and gas interlocks. Stainless steel wall cladding was also supplied and fitted. 

A full equipment package was supplied including induction for prime cooking, alongside combination ovens, fryers, griddles and grill. 

Work in the main kitchen included new electrical supplies and stripping out and relocating the chef’s office, with all associated facilities such as heating, light, telephony and electrics. Equipment specified and installed including a coldroom, blast-chiller and 20-grid combi oven. 

Other works included the complete stripping out and refurbishment of the existing dishwash area, which included new floor screeding and the fitting of anti-slip flooring.

An existing combi-oven was relocated and new strip curtaining was also provided for existing coldrooms.
