The project:

Refurbishment of the main kitchen and basement prep kitchen to make the best use of the available space and improve the work flow at this country retreat in Staffordshire that combines spa treatments and gourmet lakeside dining with luxury events and wedding venue facilities.

The result:

Bettaquip proposed a solution that included a central island cooking suite with open pass into the restaurant, under counter refrigeration for mise en place and a new dishwashing layout based on a rack dishwasher. Included in the proposal was a new extraction hood and Altro safety flooring throughout with hygienic UPVC cladding to all walls. Working in close partnership with the clients appointed builders and M&E contractors, Bettaquip completed the refurbishment over a three week period to minimise disruption to normal business.

The new equipment and layout has made a dramatic improvement to the working ergonomics within the kitchen to improve the speed and efficiency of service. The kitchen team are also benefiting from the improved working conditions with lower working temperatures and an atmosphere free of products of combustion following the introduction of the latest cooking technology, This also reduces both energy costs and environmental impact as the Electrolux induction cooking hobs only operate when a pan is present and the Frima Vario Cooking Centre cooks faster than conventional alternatives and is over 95% efficient.

The new wall and floor finishes enable easy cleaning of work areas to ensure a hygienic environment and aesthetic visual appeal which is important with the new open kitchen layout.

The automation of the dishwashing area with a Meiko rack machine has made a major difference to a busy area of the kitchen enabling staff to manage the increased capacity in the restaurant and at peak times during banqueting events.
