The designs above illustrate examples of small, medium and large open plan kitchen facilities. These show the types of kitchen facility that we can design and supply where an open plan solution is required.
There is, however, no limit to the size and layout of the open plan kitchens that we are able to supply, and for each project we will work with you to ensure that we design a facility which best matches your requirements. This includes the addition of office space, showers, WC facilities and dining rooms if required, as well as a bespoke kitchen configuration.
Each open plan kitchen facility supplied is first constructed at PKL and fitted out with all catering equipment and relevant M&E fittings, before being broken down into modules, delivered to your site and reconstructed, tested and commissioned.
Our open plan kitchens are designed specifically to your requirements, incorporating your choice of production, preparation, dishwashing and storage facilities.
Our open plan kitchens are ideal for longer term projects or larger volume catering requirements and have been developed from our vast experience in delivering large scale kitchen complexes to major sporting events, the MOD food manufacturers and the MOJ.
Why Open Plan Kitchens?
Improved working conditions
Communication within the kitchen is improved and the working environment is lighter and more spacious.
Improved air handling
Central Island Canopies feature powerful extraction, linked into balanced air intake systems. Heat build-up is reduced and kitchen airflow improved.
Central Island cooking
Many chefs prefer Central Island Canopy systems. With the open plan kitchen, this is a reality with canopies 6m x 2.5m or larger.
Large volume catering
The MOD, prison service and even contract caterers have used this system from PKL to produce anything from 200 to over 5,000 meals per day.
How does it work?
Design and build
Working with you, PKL will design the kitchen best suited to your needs.
Speed of construction
Open Plan Kitchens can be delivered and installed in as little as five days.
From our experience we have proven designs ready to go – all using PKL hire equipment.
PKL will project manage the installation from the preparation of groundworks and services, to the handover and training of your personnel.
Health and safety
Full compliance with construction industry standards are followed including risk assessments, method statements and PKL safety officer site visits.
Fire suppression systems and auto gas shut off devices are standard. Fire alarms and detection devices are available for hire.
