RDA has proved to be top of the class in educational catering, with its latest commercial kitchen design and servery fit-out achieving top marks with both students and teachers at the University College School, London.
Working in partnership
RDA secured the contract to supply and install the kitchen and catering equipment specified by the Litmus Partnership, sourcing all equipment, managing delivery and installation of coldrooms, ventilation canopies, bespoke fabrication and servery counters, working in collaboration with Litmus, the main contractor and the school.
Part of a major refurbishment at University College School, RDA split the project into two phases to coincide with the main contractor’s works, to minimise disruption to students’ education.
As a listed building with no lift, the kitchen and catering site on the first floor of the school also presented its own unique challenges. RDA first surveyed the site in detail, before assisting Litmus in specifying equipment, counters and bespoke fabrication designed to suit the access restrictions, working within short timeframes.
The project is part of RDA’s continued success in the independent schools market, as headline sponsor of the Independent Schools’ Bursars Association (ISBA) Exhibition 2016 and again for 2017.
