A kitchen refit at Lindsey Lodge Hospice, Scunthorpe.
Lindsey Lodge Limited
Lindsey Lodge Hospice, Scunthorpe
The existing kitchen was approximately 25 years old and general wear and tear was noticeable and although we have consistently achieved a 5-star rating in respect of Food Hygiene ratings on external inspection, we were advised to work towards some replacement programme. The Trustees were happy to support a full kitchen replacement to an agreed budget given our increasing demands on catering for staff, volunteers, inpatients, day care patients and support to an external Hospice retail outlet.
ATL Commercial Kitchens were commissioned to design/plan the full new kitchen. This was to include new bespoke stainless steel sink units and benches; prime cooking equipment including the industry’s best RATIONAL 5 SENSES combination ovens, the fitting of hygienic wall and floor coverings, ventilation/extract system with the addition of a hygienic suspended ceiling and energy efficient LED lighting.
Our in house design team produced a CAD Drawing and specification for approval by the client.
Once the drawing and specification had been approved it was handed to our project management team who produced a program of works to inform the client of every step of the process.
ATL assigned an experienced and dedicated project manager to ensure the project was completed on time and cost with minimum supervision from the client. The project manager was responsible for safe working at all times while ensuring our team of contractors and our own team of engineers where working to the highest possible standards.
The work consisted of:
- The installation of hygienic wall and floor coverings.
- Hygienic suspended ceiling and energy efficient LED lighting.
- The Installation of full new extract/ventilation system and ATL’s ECO LOGIC energy efficient environmental control system. See - http://www.atlcommercialkitchens.com/news/2-eco-logic-ge4s
- Installation stainless steel benches, sinks, and racks.
Once completed the project manager conducted a handover meeting and a project completion folder. This contained all of the relevant certificates to ensure the complete satisfaction of the client.
ATL completed the project in exactly 4 weeks and delivered the project on timescale and cost.
"The project was very well managed from start to finish, a project plan was handed over at the initial start-up meeting and regular communication took place throughout the 4-week project with the supplier and the team on site. Any queries or out of scope requirements were dealt with immediately and efficiently, in particular the provision of a quotation for a replacement fridge which was off specification but delivered next day – amazing service and a competitive price too! Training was offered and a comprehensive handover of the kitchen equipment and functions took place.
Ash and his team were a pleasure to have on site and apart from a more limited provision of catering to staff and volunteers whilst the re-fit took place; we would hardly have known they were here! We would thoroughly recommend ATL Commercial Kitchens. Our Catering Manager and his team are thrilled with their new kitchen – a great result for us at Lindsey Lodge Hospice, thank you."
