Project management and installation

Court Catering Equipment specialises in the design, supply and installation of commercial catering equipment. Whether upgrading an existing installation or creating a brand new facility, we ensure equipment is installed on time and within the agreed budget. River Cafe, London: Originally, this project involved updating the restaurant over two years. However, a fire rapidly brought forward the deadline. What so impressed the judges was that Court Catering Equipment literally sprang to the rescue, accelerating their design and installation, including a superb wood burning oven, innovative underground ventilation solution and bespoke designed fabrication for the open-plan kitchen. “Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined we'd have a restaurant as good looking as this," co-owner Ruth Gray told the press. More of Court Catering Equipment’s customers explain below the benefits of working with this leading London equipment distributor.

Jane Neary, Assistant Director and Head of Commercial Business: “I am one of Court’s biggest supporters. They have proved to be an invaluable partner as we sought to develop and improve the catering provision here at Imperial College. “We were so impressed with the quality of their work – and their ability to come in on time and budget – that we have requested Court Catering Equipment’s assistance on two further projects. “Court worked well with builders and architects and proved to be flexible and highly professional in all aspects. Their enthusiasm was reflected in their presentations to university management, health & safety and maintenance teams, which helped speed the understanding and passage of these large catering projects. “Our new catering facilities are performing well, receiving excellent feedback from staff, students and the public.”

At short notice, improve the catering facilities at Ranelagh Primary School, Newham (piloting free school meals for all primary schools). Sally Sutherland, Catering Development Manager: “Court Catering Equipment provides us with excellent work. We were quite late with our order and only had the summer holiday slot free. Their original proposal met our needs and – with the help of OGC prices – was highly competitive and on a timescale that would be achievable. “We are very pleased with the result, especially the quality of stainless steel fabrication and the ventilation system. Court also went ‘over and above’ the norm to help us with additional training for our kitchen staff.”

New training kitchen for able-bodied and disabled students at Thames Valley University. Professor David Foskett, Head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism: “We are extremely pleased with the help Court Catering provided TVU, from initial concept through to final training. “The new facilities are considered to be a model in this sector and as a result, many other colleges and schools are visiting TVU to see what we have achieved. “What has particularly impressed is the optimal use of space, the flow through the facility and that the chef lecturers can clearly see what the students are cooking.”

Refit the kitchen of French restaurant, Le Relais de Venise, Marylebone, London. Mourad Dine, Managing Director: “We started working with Court 18 months ago and they have helped us in both our London restaurants. We have built a good relationship, especially with project director Simon Gelber, who is always very professional. “Also, I would highly recommend Lynda Pile in the service department – she is always very helpful. The parts department at Court is also very good, as is their design – everybody is good in this company. I would definitely recommend them.”

Installation of Min Jiang Restaurant, Royal Garden Hotel, London. Jonathan Lowrey, Deputy General Manager: “The transformation of our traditional European restaurant into the truly authentic Min Jiang Chinese restaurant presented challenges in all aspects of the design and build process, but the result is a resounding success. With the innovative design of Humble Arnold Associates and the commitment and expertise of Court Catering, we are pleased to now have a Chinese kitchen that our Master Chef is proud to cook in. “Court Catering faced significant challenges included upgrading the ventilation and sourcing specialist Chinese Wok burner cookers, wood burning ovens and stoves, which needed complex and time-consuming CE registration before being installed. They also sourced a duck ‘drying’ fridge from Italy specifically for this project. “We were impressed by the highly professional manner in which Court Catering handled the problems of dismantling the old kitchen and installing the new equipment on the 10th Floor, with the minimum of disruption to both our guests and the hotel itself. I would highly recommend them!”
