Deloitte Birmingham

The project:

Design and install a kitchen and servery for the staff restaurant of a prestigious business located in a busy city centre.

The result:

Overbury, the UK's leading office fit out and refurbishment specialist, was awarded the contract to transform Deloitte's 52,000 sq ft office premises located at Four Brindley Place in Birmingham city centre where its 750 employees occupy three floors. Overbury were tasked with reconfiguring and refitting Deloitte's existing offices to create an inclusive, inviting and inspiring workplace for Deloitte's people and clients and chose Bettaquip to design and install the kitchen and servery for the staff restaurant that is located on the first floor of the building.

To achieve maximum efficiency and reduce environmental impact the latest cooking technology was proposed by Bettaquip. This includes a Falcon induction cooking range that only uses power when a pan is present on the hob for reduced energy consumption and improved, cooler working condition free of products of combustion. An efficient Frima Multi Function Cooker does the work of a bratt pan, boiling kettle, and fryer all in one unit up to four times as fast and with 40% less power consumption. Stacked Rational combination ovens are fitted with sophisticated electronic controls that match cooking conditions to the task in hand for faster results with reduced shrinkage.

A similar high tech solution was specified for the dishwashing area. The Meiko DV80 hood dishwasher is equipped with GiO reverse osmosis water treatment to demineralise water to a purity level of around 98% for crystal clear results and an Activ Air feature reduces steam emissions, making for a much more pleasant working environment.

The servery design incorporates a curved stone with Oak laminate frontage to serve as a focal point and complement the d├ęcor of the restaurant.

Planning and logistics were key to the success of the project with only restricted deliveries allowed into Brindley Place and with the kitchen located on the first floor specialist lifting equipment had to be used to get heavy oversized items up the stairs.

The response:

Haydon Whitehead, the Overybury Project Manager, described the fit out by Bettaquip as "an excellent performance".
