An new kitchen installation at the City Hall in Hull, East Yorkshire
Hull City Council Culture and Leisure Department & Norfolk Property Services (NPS Humber LTD)
Hull City Hall
Due to the recent take over of the City Hall by The Culture and Leisure Department and the need for an up to date facility to provide banqueting for Hull’s City of culture status for 2017 a full kitchen refurbishment was needed.
ATL Commercial Kitchens role was to supply and install catering equipment and install a state of the art energy efficient extract / ventilation system and to work with nominated contractors to deliver the best kitchen Hull as ever seen.
“A flagship kitchen to the city of Hull and a benchmark in event catering for the city!”
Never ones to shy away from a challenge the City Hall was to remain open for business as usual during the works so access, deliveries, noise, workspace and parking where always going to be major issues but the biggest challenge of all was to deliver the entire project in under 4 weeks!
This was not to mention working with and around builders, steelworkers, and electricians to name a few! The tight program of works was due to a major event that was planned by the City Hall requiring on site catering facilities on the day.
All design and planning was conducted by NPS Humber LTD and our in house Engineering team put together a specification for an energy efficient kitchen ventilation system using our own ECO-LOGIC Control Panel for approval by the client, this was quickly accepted due to the unrivalled performance and cost saving. All while our kitchen design team was keeping on top of making sure all appliances and our bespoke fabrication fit perfectly and had all the correct services to connect to.
ATL assigned an experienced and dedicated project manager to oversee the work and ensure all the client’s needs where met as far as quality and timescale.
ATL’s work brief consisted of:
- Stripping out the kitchen appliances and old extract canopy.
- Installation of new catering appliances
- The installation of New extract canopy including ATL’s ECO-LOGIC control unit and heat recovery system.
- ATL Were also awarded the mechanical contract to re-fit the kitchens plumbing and gas supplies.
Once completed the project manager conducted a handover meeting and ATL Produced project completion folder. This contained all of the relevant certificates and manuals to ensure the complete satisfaction of the client.
ATL completed the project in exactly 4 weeks and delivered the project on time.
"ATL Commercial Kitchens role was to supply and install catering equipment to the highest specification to ensure the kitchens production level was not compromised. As ATL already have a great reputation for quality and service and are main dealers for Rational, Frima, Hobart and Falcon, they were the perfect choice of catering equipment supplier/contractor.
ATL’s dedicated engineers worked tirelessly working weekends, early mornings and late nights. They are a true credit to the company. We used to serve a maximum of 150 covers in 25 mins, we can now serve 500 covers in 24 mins!"
