A growing awareness of healthy eating and childhood obesity has increased pressure on the education catering sector to deliver better, healthier food.
But the traditional requirements to deliver large volumes of meals in a short space of time and often on very tight budgets still remain.
We can ease some of the pressure by working closely with both catering teams and educational institutions to design kitchen and catering facilities which maximise productivity. Our relationships with commercial kitchen equipment manufacturers allow us to negotiate the best prices for new refrigeration, ovens and dishwashers.
For school, college and private academy kitchens we can help any organisation to provide an exceptional quality of catering. Our experience in the commercial sector is also valuable in providing a variety of kitchen and catering outlets for universities, which face greater competition from external vendors.
All of our kitchen design consultancy, procurement and builds for educational facilities meet the latest health and safety legislation. And our timescales can be tailored to suit the nature of the academic year to avoid disruption to students and teaching staff.
Set to open this September, the new Cherstey High School will provide first-class facilities for 900 pupils aged 11-16 years old. KCCJ was successfully awarded the commercial kitchen package for this project.
Although best known for its expertise relating to the design, specification and installation of commercial kitchens, KCCJ’s skills extend way beyond these disciplines, as a recent project undertaken at Richmond Education and Enterprise Campus (REEC) clearly demonstrates.
