Open Plan Facility for Swinfen

PKL designed and built and open plan temporary kitchen facility to feed 650 inmates during the refurbishment of the permanent facility at HMYOI Swinfen Hall.

PKL were given a clear brief from Swinfen Hall for their temporary kitchen facility. The kitchen had to be open plan, allowing maximum visibility and built to strict security guidelines. This was the first kitchen of its kind to be built using dwarf walls and Central Island Canopies for complete visibility around the kitchen.

Constructed using PKL container units based on the design of ISO shipping containers, the units allowed for a flexible configuration to suit the site. Upon completion, the open plan facility consisted of walk in coldrooms, warewashing facilities, dry storage, preparation areas and main production kitchen covering 365m2. ­

Kitchens Kitchens Everywhere!

Location proved to be no problem for PKL as a Portable Kitchen was craned onto the deck of HMS Invincible to cater for two events as part of the Trafalgar 200 celebrations.

The ship, which was docked in Portsmouth, was loaded with a Magnum Kitchen and two Coldrooms before sailing into the Solent where the events were held. All the catering equipment had to be compatible with the ships’ electrics and secured so they would remain static while at sea.

PKL were able to quickly position and install the Portable Kitchens and catering equipment onto the ship, which was then used to provide 700 covers in the space of 10 days.
PKL have supplied Portable Kitchens and catering equipment to a wide range of events throughout the UK including the London Marathon, Glastonbury festival, Wembley Stadium and Earls Court.
