Blend Kitchen - Sheffield
Opened In July, 2018.
Based in the heart of Sheffield, Blend Kitchen gave us the opportunity to design and build an open plan kitchen which would stand up to the rigours of a busy, city centre establishment but also have the flexibility to cope with Blend’s daily changing menu. We tackled this first by installing a neat extract system above the proposed cook line, utilising a refurbished canopy fitted in to an existing alcove, this not only looks great but also kept costs down. Before taking the ducting up and across the tall ceiling, all of which had to be finished to as high a standard as possible as all this work is on show to the public.
Next, the wholly electric kitchen was delivered, including a large bain-marie hotcupboard with a stainless steel overhang that was placed over a low wall, creating an excellent pass and stopping the need for waiting staff to enter the kitchen. The kitchen also contained an electric range, fryer and grill, all designed to be placed in the alcove, gaining the kitchen some well needed extra space as well as being neatly under the hood of the extract. All the equipment, including the fabrications and some refrigeration that we also supplied, were from our refurbished stock, saving the customer a large proportion of cost of equivalent new equipment which was great for all concerned especially as this project is part of a community based charity! We also supplied some further equipment for a separate dishwash room, working around what existing equipment they already had to make the space work more efficiently.
