Broomhall Community Centre
Jack at Broomhall Community Centre reached out to us through a recommendation from one of our previous customers. He asked us to design, supply and install a new commercial kitchen space in place of the domestic kitchen they had previously. We were charged with mixing new equipment and appliances alongside refurbished equipment to deliver a high quality product whilst still saving money where applicable. We were also asked to supply and fit stainless steel cladding behind the 6 burner cooker and white, plastic cladding to the remainder of the kitchen.
Once the builders and flooring contractors had done their part, we were left with a blank canvass to fill and 3 days to fill it. On day 1 we delivered all the equipment, including a brand new dishwasher from DC, new microwave from Sharp and new refrigeration units from Blizzard. We also supplied a refurbished Falcon Dominator 6 burner oven range. As quoted, we managed to use mainly refurbished fabrications, saving heavily against the price of new equivalent. We did not allow our cost saving to affect design however and therefore supplied a purpose built, bespoke double bowl sink unit with space under for the dishwasher to be housed as this was integral to the kitchen design.
Our cladding team then set to work, firstly installing the stainless steel cladding behind the oven range, before tackling the white plastic cladding that would be used for the rest of the kitchen area. We decided, with the customer, for this cladding to be taken to half height, saving costs on materials and fitting whilst still providing a great splashback for all the kitchen surfaces.
As the cladding was being fitted, our installation team worked with them, following them round where they had finished, installing the kitchen including extending/altering the water supplies and drains for the new sinks, fixing wall shelves, Before installing and commissioning all the equipment.
All the cladding work was completed on day 1, as was the majority of the kitchen install, leaving the install team chance to come back in the next morning to finish off what they needed to before signing off the kitchen to the customer at lunchtime on day 2. A day and a half ahead of schedule. We were really happy with the finished project, bringing it in on time and below the centre’s initial budget. Giving them additional funds to spend elsewhere on the centre.
