Complete Project Management

PKL offer a complete turnkey service when providing a temporary kitchen for a major event. The tabs below illustrate the full turnkey package offered by PKL.

Our design team is vastly experienced in delivering major event catering complexes. We can begin working with the chosen master caterer or organising committee a number of years before the commencement of your event to design a facility that matches your requirements and budget.

We can provide a complete temporary catering solution, including the specification of the temporary structure to house the kitchen and dining facility, kitchen and dining hall layouts, mechanical and electrical service layouts and loadings, drainage requirements, and foundation drawings. All of our designs are available in 2D CAD design and can also be illustrated in 3D. As part of the design process, we will undertake visits to the host country of a major event, to understand local regulations and regulatory bodies that must be satisfied in regards to catering infrastructure and understand local power and gas services and regulations.

Once we have provided a suitable design, we will provide a detailed installation schedule and programme of works, outlining all aspects of the delivery, installation and handover process.

We are vastly experienced in delivering temporary and permanent catering infrastructure around the world and will take care of the shipping and delivery of all temporary catering infrastructure to the site of your event, and its removal once your event is finished.
The installation of kitchens and catering equipment is undertaken utilising our vastly experienced team of project managers and catering equipment engineers. We can also manage subcontractors  involved in the groundworks, construction of the temporary venue, the mechanical and electrical services, air conditioning, and gas and water distribution if required.

Where possible and relevant, we will utilise the services of local contractors for specialist services, who are identified during the design consultation process. During the installation and build we will move a team of project managers and installation engineers to the country of the event, to ensure that we have a permanent presence on site during the construction phase. This can sometimes be up to six months before the commencement of an event. Once complete, all kitchens are commissioned and tested before being handed over to the caterer.

Each venue will have a project manager and team of engineers on site to ensure that the kitchens and serveries remain operational at all times, and that any problems are dealt with as quickly as possible. A stock of critical spare parts will also be kept at each venue to ensure that any catering equipment breakdowns are fixed as quickly as possible.

PKL can act as a project manager for the kitchen and dining installation, organising the provision of:

  • Management of groundworks and drainage
  • Construction of temporary kitchen and dining accommodation
  • Dining and seating installation
  • Gas and water distribution
  • The delivery and installation of all temporary catering equipment
  • M&E services
  • Air conditioning

A Complete Event Solution

Due to the nature of a major event, the catering operation is often spread out across a games park, or even throughout the host city and beyond to other event venues.

We can manage the entire catering infrastructure operation for a major event, and have experience of designing, installing and managing 150 kitchen locations at a single major international event.

Having a single supplier of catering infrastructure provides you with peace of mind and ensures that you have one point of contact for all aspects relating to the temporary catering overlay for your event.
