No School Kitchen? No problem!

PKL has been involved in providing modular kitchen units to thousands of clients over the last 20 years during refurbishment projects, emergencies or events such as the Olympic Games in both Athens and Sydney and very soon, in Beijing.

Modular Kitchen and Service Station

Commercial kitchen rental services from PKL have allowed them to provide many facilities. After a fire completely destroyed the MOTO service station at Birchwood, PKL rebuilt a complete temporary facility. Every area of the service station was designed, provided and constructed by PKL, creating a complete modular temporary structure. The complete facility included, kitchen and dining area, snack shop and male, female and disabled toilets, including baby change room.

The PKL built facility was operational within 3 weeks of the initial phone call, using traditional building methods this would have taken over 12 months.

PKL assign a Project Manager to all commercial kitchen rental projects to ensure all processes run smoothly from initial design through to installation and commissioning. A time line and mandatory health and safety information are provided at the beginning of every commercial kitchen rental project along with risk assessments, method statements and a safety plan for the works.
