Stoke Prior based commercial kitchen and design firm Procaterserv, are basking in the praise of the new catering facilities they have recently created and installed at London Zoo.
The kitchen and catering design firm were recommended for the project as being one of the top companies able to design and install the facilities, as part of a brand new venture for the Zoo.
The Animal Adventure café is housed within an existing building, which was gutted in order to give Procaterserv a blank canvas to start with, when designing the bespoke kitchen and dining area.
One of the specific requirements for the café was fitting in with the Zoo’s environmental eco-policy. To ensure this was taken into account, Procaterserv designed and fitted various facilities including a bespoke worktop made from Resilica – which contains recycled glass, which is both eco friendly and durable.
Resilica is a bespoke worktop and surface material which is hand made in the UK from 100% recycled glass waste. Mixed with a specially developed solvent-free resin system then cast into solid panels, the surface is ground away and polished to reveal fragments of embedded glass which reflect light
Lee Shelton, Sales Director said “We were presented with some ideas by the in-house team at London Zoo, together with their budget – and we advised on lots of different options in order to maximise their investment, and provide not only the kitchen itself, but also all the catering equipment too.
“The budget was fairly tight, as they required lots of additional seating, but together we were able to come up with a solution that enabled them to have everything they required and all within their budget.
The team at London Zoo were drawn to Procaterserv as they were able to offer the whole package – from initial CAD design of the kitchen, through to install and sourcing of all the equipment.
Steve Alexander Operations Manager (Catering) at London Zoo was delighted with the results “The enthusiasm that the team at Procaterserv has shown in both designing and developing the project, on time and in budget, has helped us immensely.
“Their supervision of the project has been key, and we will certainly be building on this relationship for future projects”.
The London Zoo facilities follow appointments for other household brands such as River Island and Mama Group.
