PKL supplied a high specification 29-unit temporary kitchen facility to Trinity College, to ensure the high catering standards for students, Fellows and staff was maintained during a major refurbishment of its kitchens.
Trinity College is renowned for the quality of its food and its kitchens cater for three to four sittings a day. Each sitting caters for up to 300 people, ranging from routine meals for around 900 students in residence to feasts and other formal functions.
The temporary kitchen supplied was customised to meet the College’s requirements and prefabricated at PKL’s purpose designed facility in Cheltenham.
It was then delivered to site as 29 separate units before being craned into place and connected onsite to create an open plan facility. As the entrance to the College dining room is 1.3m above ground level, the temporary kitchen is also raised to the same height and connected to the main building by a specially constructed flying walkway.
The exterior of the kitchen has been finished in a colour selected by the College to blend in as far as possible with the surrounding buildings, which are Grade 1 listed.
