School Catering Refurbishment

We were tasked with the school catering refurbishment and redesign of the dining and servery areas; specifically focusing on improving the speed of service, enhancing the food display and changing the students perception of their dining experience at the college.

The principle behind the design was to upgrade the restaurant and servery taking influence from contemporary high street market retailers. To give a sophisticated feel to the space granite tops were used in conjunction with contemporary food displays. Fresh colours combined with glossy finishes and natural materials brought the interior to life. Ambient space is premium allowing flexibility for seasonal menu change and future adaptation of the food offer.

As part of the school catering refurbishment we introduced a duel flow counter system to improve the service delivered to the students, creating more efficient mealtimes.  On the counters, old fashioned bain-maries were replaced with contemporary displays and gantry’s. Pendant lighting hangs above the servery and the back wall boasts feature metro tiling and wood paneling, a new timber floor throughout creates warmth complimenting the simplistic white counters. Partition walls between kitchen and servery were created to reduce the visual aspect of the back of house services, whilst still enabling the operating staff visibility into the service area. New drinks counters with contemporary style fonts were relocated  into the dining room to improve circulation space.
