Case Study: Care Home Emergency Kitchen
Dawsonrentals recently provided an emergency response temporary kitchen for a care home in Lincolnshire. We were contacted by a previous customer on Thursday, in urgent need of a temporary kitchen. Their current kitchen was out of action, but they still had an obligation to cater for their residents. We knew a swift response and turnaround time would be required.
The client initially got in touch with us at 10am, and by lunch all contracts had been signed and work had begun. Just 5 hours later, the temporary kitchen had been fully equipped to the customer’s exact requirements, safety checked, completely sanitised and loaded, ready for delivery. Despite a heavy work load at the time, we rose to the challenge and successfully delivered and installed the kitchen at 6am on Friday, less than 24 hours after we were contacted.
Dawsonrentals provided all the equipment in the kitchen; this included a 6 ring burner, upright fridge and freezer, a salamander grill, double bowl and hand wash sinks and a stainless steel prep table; all fitting into a Companion kitchen unit. The temporary kitchen was on site for 6 weeks, whilst the necessary works to get their facility back up and running were being completed.
Being able to respond to a client’s needs is the key focus of our business. We are delighted that, once again, we were able to deliver within this small time frame. Businesses never know when they might require a temporary kitchen, but they can at least feel at ease knowing that if the worst should happen, a quick solution is readily available.
‘We placed the order on the Thursday, and it was here, ready to go, Friday morning!’
