GastroNorth have recently completed works at Bedlingtonshire Community High School in Northumberland where we were appointed by Galliford Try to design, supply and install the new catering facilities in the new PSBP build school which is on schedule to open in September 2016.

Featuring state of the art equipment and innovations from market leading suppliers such as Unox ChefTop Mind Maps Plus™ combination steaming ovens and SpidoCook™ Contact Grills, Blue seal, Falcon, Williams Refrigeration , Hobart Warewash, Sammic preparation appliances , Hatco holding cabinets , Mechline hoses, taps and pre rinses and Grease Paks, IMC waste disposal station and E&R Moffat counters, the School, EFA and client are delighted with the overall project and the performance of everyone involved.

By carefully planning the counter systems and vast equipment range involved in the scheme, the kitchen staff are equipped with an operational solution that flows perfectly during busy periods of service and the ability to deliver a vast menu offering to students and staff.

Richard Toye, Director at GastroNorth commented: “We are really familiar with education catering schemes this is one of over 60 school/ college or University kitchens for us this year with five having been in Northumberland and we thrive at the challenge of creating new facilities in state of the art buildings. While the blue print of education projects is often similar, it’s extremely important that the team carefully consider the flow of each project individually, and each catering team’s specific requirements, this is crucial to the efficiency of the day to day operation and productivity.
