Case Study: Olympic Park
Morrison Construction are one the UK's largest construction companies and conducted various site service roles at the London 2012 Olympic Games site. During their work on site, the company needed a catering solution for their 300 workers.
Catering company, Dino's Café, were tendering to provide the catering service for the workers at Morrison Construction and turned to Dawsongroup for an effective catering solution. Having previously used one of our kitchen facilities at this site, Dino's Café knew the potential benefits a similar solution could offer.
Dawsongroup worked closely with Dino's on a proposal, demonstrating how they could provide a suitable catering solution to the workforce at Morrison Construction, where Morrison had originally intended to build a kitchen area within an existing dining area onsite.
Dawsongroup showed that by using a separate kitchen unit linked to the main dining area, space would in fact be created within the canteen facility. In addition, all kitchen units supplied by Dawsongroup have all the necessary health and safety features fully integrated, saving any additional costs in retro fitting a current building. This proved to be a more effective solution for both Morrison Construction and for the staff at Dino's.
A 16ft Companion kitchen was specified for the job, though due to site restrictions, all the catering equipment required needed to run on three-phase electric power. As every kitchen unit Dawsongroup prepare begins as an empty shell, the catering equipment inside is tailored to each site's specific demands, ensuring these issues can be easily resolved.
Within the kitchen alongside a double basket fryer, hot plate range and upright freezer, additional space was also allowed for preparation tables. In addition, both ambient and heated servery units were supplied to allow food to be presented and served in a professional manner.
The temporary kitchen solution supplied and installed by Dawsongroup in just one day, and was used initially for twelve months until the beginning of the Olympic Games.
Dino's Café recommended Dawsongroup to other companies working on the Olympic site, enabling more workers to benefit from our integrated catering solutions.
