PKL Group constructed a prison kitchen for a temporary custodial facility built alongside existing prison buildings.
Working to a tight deadline, PKL supplied a 560m2 System Kitchen to site, 13 weeks after receiving the order from the main contractor. The kitchen was delivered fully equipped and was handed over to the client eight weeks later.
The System Kitchen was built using off-site construction techniques, which greatly reduced the overall lead-time of the project. The kitchen, which contains a number of unique features, is designed to blend in with its surroundings and is fully relocatable so that it can easily be moved to another part of the site if needed.
PKL has over 20 years’ experience of designing modular buildings and, using the very latest off-site construction techniques, has delivered many System Kitchen projects throughout the UK.
A System Kitchen can adhere to the latest in prison design specifications, while being tailor-made for the facility in question. It can be adapted according to the equipment required, the amount of people catered for, staffing levels and the number of meals that will be served each day.
Specifying a System Kitchen can drastically reduce the overall timescale of a project, as design and off-site building takes place at the same time as work on the construction site. The kitchen arrives on-site fully equipped, negating any fit-out time, and it is ready for connection to the required utilities.
PKL provides a complete ‘turnkey’ solution covering design, planning, construction, M&E, equipment, installation, commissioning and service.
“PKL met all of our expectations delivering the kitchen onsite 13 weeks after receiving our order. Kier Custodial would not hesitate in recommending the services of PKL to others.”
