Project Challenges & Successes

COVID-19, Brexit and the Russian invasion of the Ukraine all had an impact during the project programme and the repercussions needed to be closely monitored to avoid delaying the programme or having to vary from the original specification. The main challenge faced was that the café and staff dining counters were specified to be clad in birch panels however this material was in severe shortage in the UK at the time of installation. After a focused effort to find alternative methods of resourcing alongside proposing alternatives, the team was able to achieve the client handover on time.

Following handover of all areas, a training plan was agreed with the client and operational team to encompass a detailed overview of the catering facilities delivered as well as specific equipment training by the relevant manufacturers to ensure a seamless transition for the client.

Due to our successful delivery of this project, we were delighted to be appointed as the maintenance provider for all of the commercial catering equipment installed on site.
