Littlemore Hospital

The project:

To supply a new production kitchen and servery at Littlemore Hospital.

The result:

The project had to be completed within a very short timeframe of just six weeks in order to ensure that Littlemore Hospital would be able to fulfil a number of pre booked events. BETTAquip was quick to understand that this constraint meant that performance and delivery were the key project requirements. Meeting the six week deadline was an even greater challenge as the installation of the foodservice equipment had to integrated with an extensive programme of building works

The brief given was to design and install a kitchen and servery with the capability of doubling the food production capacity. To meet this brief BETTAquip designed a solution which maximised the available space by extending the production kitchen into the existing servery area and relocating the servery area within the dining area.

The scope of the works included the installation of a new air handling system with a central island extraction canopy and tempered input air. New Electrolux Prime cooking equipment were incorporated into a central island and featured two 20 grid combination ovens, two bratt pans, two solid top burner ovens and two fryers. A general and chilled preparation areas were installed and included HD Line refrigerated counters, an 80 litre mixer and a vegetable preparation machine. Two 20 grid 100KG Blast Chillers with remote compressors were also installed. The bespoke Staron topped servery counter includes a facility to serve hot meals, Grab and Go area and an Island Salad Bar.

Despite the time constraints and complex nature of the installation, BETTAquip completed the project on time and on budget. The facility is now used by visitors and staff and is proving to be a popular canteen.

The response: 

Steve Warner, Catering Manager, Oxford & Buckinghamshire Mental Health Trust:

I am delighted with the finished outcome and believe that BETTAquip performed exceedingly well to complete the installation on time and within budget."
