We relish the unique challenges of combining modern kitchen equipment and facilities in historic settings.
Our commercial kitchen projects will maintain original finishes and comply with the strict rules from organisations such as English Heritage and National Trust. But they also meet the latest health and safety legislation for staff and visitors. And enable you to deliver the food services your visitors will expect, without detracting from the historic nature of the setting.
Even delivering and fitting current commercial kitchen equipment can provide a challenge due to the nature of heritage sites. Our solutions have included the use of cranes to deliver ovens to basement kitchens in listed buildings and delivering new machinery before our joinery and decorating teams finished the kitchen fit-out - preventing narrow doorways being a problem.
The fact that we can provide all stages of the commercial kitchen project allows us to be flexible and incorporate different solutions into our timeframes without causing confusion for other contractors. Instead our teams are able to work together to solve any problems before they occur.
KCCJ were appointed principal contractor for the complete refurbishment of the commercial kitchen facilities at the historic Mercers Hall in London, a building with a long history dating back to 1370AD.
