The brief: RDA was appointed to this full redesign, supply and installation project for the main production kitchen at the Cranfield Management Development Centre (part of Cranfield University).
The project also included upgrading the staff mess facilities with a dedicated servery and refrigerated space. Future-proofing, eliminating ‘dead areas’ and maximising energy efficiency were all key aspects of this demanding brief.
The result: Creating a smaller kitchen has resulted in a more efficient and operationally sound facility, with the leftover space providing valuable storage areas.
As a full fit-out job, works included installing new extractions and ventilation systems, new cold and freezer rooms and bespoke fabrication, including a unique ‘one-piece top’ cooking island which was welded on site.
