Rapid Reponse Systems

PKL can provide relocatable kitchens and support facilities for remote international sites. Our range of options includes containerised units, tented solutions, and modular System Kitchens as well as facilities composed from ex-rental portable kitchens.

Containerised Systems can have a design life of up to 25 years and consist of highly robust ISO rated units that can be used in isolation or in unison to construct a larger facility. The units are designed specifically for rapid deployment and provide a safe, robust and efficient environment, self powered if necessary, with onboard generators, water and waste tanks.

System Kitchens are modular buildings designed and built using the latest in off site construction techniques. A System Kitchen is fully relocatable and conforms to full construction standards and is ideally suited for longer-term solutions.

Tented solutions offer great value for money and are easily relocatable and although they are not as robust or long lasting as containerised units, their low cost and portability make them ideal for many situations, including dining rooms and stores.

Inflatable systems have many benefits including speed of erection with minimal labour and extremely high insulation values.

PKL has the largest fleet of portable kitchen units in the world. Where an extremely rapid delivery is required, projects can be delivered utilising kitchens and equipment drawn directly from the PKL fleet

We have an impressive record of delivering fast-track facilities to the world’s military forces as well as to major construction and oil exploration sites and for relief work.

All Systems Go!

System Kitchens are commercial kitchens designed to take advantage of the very latest in off-site construction methods and while often specified for permanent use, are entirely relocatable allowing the end user complete flexibility. This construction method ensures that the time spent on site is drastically reduced.

Over the last 18 years, PKL have completed over 200 System Kitchen projects for a range of clients including facilities management companies, schools, hospitals, contract caterers, prisons, the armed forces, hotels and oil companies. A large number of clients opt for a System Kitchen because it can be constructed quickly, without having to compromise on building standards.

Our System Kitchen specialists at PKL are able to consult with clients to ensure the kitchen is designed to reach its full potential while PKL also provide a dedicated project manager to oversee both the construction and on site installation of the kitchen. In addition our high level of expertise is kitchen design, means that the facility will be constructed to meet exact end-user requirements.

Mobile Canopies – Perfect For Major Event Catering

Mobile Canopies have been developed for cooking under canvas and within existing buildings and have been supplied by PKL for a number of major event catering projects. Mobile canopies are fitted with automatic fire suppression systems, an automatic gas shut off system and a full-length extraction canopy.

At the Commonwealth Games in Manchester, PKL supplied, managed and installed the temporary catering and dinning facilities at the Athletes Village which provided over 18,000 meals, 24 hours a day, serving athletes and officials alike. The food production operation was centred around six open plan kitchen units and three fully equipped “Central Island Canopies,” joined together to form 130m2 of production capacity.

In addition, another 400 items of catering equipment were in use throughout the dining, kitchen and serving areas.
