Back to School for the Space Catering Team

As an established commercial kitchen design company serving the whole of the UK there aren’t many sectors we haven’t worked in over the years.

The Space Team have designed and executed new kitchen and foodservice areas in cricket clubs, stadiums, hotels and theatres but one area in particular that has proved to be a growing part of the business is education.

In the last 5 years we have completed kitchen design projects in schools and colleges across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we have recently been commissioned to undertake over 10 separate installations this summer from Manchester to Bristol to London.

Keep an eye on our portfolio section for details of recently completed projects. In the meantime, here’s a quick overview of some of the education-sector projects we’ve done so far…

All Saints Academy, Cheltenham
Space saw off the opposition in a competitive tendering process to win the contract to design and install the foodservice areas for this brand new college opening in 2011. The brief contained 3 specific areas: a large kitchen for delivering meals to 1500 students and staff, an educational foodservice training area and a mini kitchen for snacks at break time.

Gloucester College, Gloucester
As with every new project brief, there are challenges and mandatory requirements, the resolution of which form part of the bespoke service our kitchen design team provide. In the case of Gloucester College, space was at a premium whilst a specific number of workstations were needed, including an adapted station for students with special needs. The Space Team stepped up to the challenge to deliver a project that left the client ‘extremely happy’.
Petroc College, Barnstaple
The north-Devon catering college had outgrown their thirty year old facilities and needed to bring the training kitchen up to date for their increasing student numbers.
Space Catering were able to provide the College with a 21st century design with green credentials, ultimately achieving 50% more capacity and increased workstation space for each student.
What’s more, the modular design ‘future-proofs’ the kitchen allowing for contents of the room to be moved should there be a requirement to relocate the foodservice area in the future.
