Project Description

This design and build project within a live prison provided a new ‘turnkey’ kitchen facility capable of serving 1000 meals, 3 times per day and 365 days per year. We constructed a traditional portal steel framed building, brick and metal clad and completely fitted the building out internally with services and equipment. The kitchen incorporated NVQ training facilities, dry goods storage, coldrooms, preparation rooms, servery trolley store, administration areas and plant room over the 1st floor level. The project included four modular servery and dining pods attached to each prison wing together with associated enabling works to divert underground drainage and services.


“The project was well managed and all the team members performed well and worked well together. Everyone is extremely satisfied with the quality of product and the users are very pleased with the improvements achieved to the Ancillaries facilities”.
