Case Study: Campsmount Technology College
Dawsongroup kitchens recently supplied a number of kitchen facilities to Portakabin Limited to assist with their project at Campsmount Technology College.
Campsmount School suffered extensive fire damage that required a school to be constructed whilst rebuilding took place. Alongside the school buildings, a full catering facility was required to cater for over 800 students and staff.
Dawsongroup and Portakabin worked in partnership, from outline designs to an agreed plan that fulfilled the client's specific requirements. Dawsongroup installation team worked closely with Portakabin and all other contractors to ensure the delivery went smoothly. Due to the nature of the project, the catering element was delivered, linked and commissioned within a six day period, on time and on budget. Once completed, comprehensive training was provided to the catering staff so they could utilise the new facility to its maximum capacity.
The complex was in place for over two years, and with our bespoke approach to kitchen facilities, the core units were laid out exactly as the catering staff required, with the right type of equipment enabling a full meal service to be provided.
Alongside a main production area, a preparation unit was supplied with various chilled and frozen storage areas. Linked to these areas, a dishwashing unit and dry goods area were also provided, with the entire catering facility linked to a temporary dining area.
To complete the facility, there was a need to create an additional space where the Catering Manager could carry out administrative work. An office area was installed away from the busy cooking areas and it was also used for internal communication, such as general notice boards and staff planning rotas.
Dawsongroup's special design of the dining area has enabled pupils to be separated according to their meal requirement. Refrigerated multi-decks and bain marie units have created a fast 'grab and go' section with hot and cold food servery runs, each with a cash register.
Through the Campsmount project, Dawsongroup has once again demonstrated why we are at the forefront of kitchen solutions in the UK, with a flexible approach and an on-going focus on providing the highest level of service to our clients.
