Canada Life Headquarters
Dun Laoghaire, Ireland
A major refurbishment of the building necessitated the expansion of the staff restaurant on the top floor which was serving 200 daily meals.
Since it’s transformation the turnover has increased by 50%. This is due to the provision of an open plan kitchen and theatre style servery where the customers become wholly involved with the dining experience, a large self help salad bar, separate Deli counter serving bespoke sandwiches and barista coffee, which remains open throughout the day and provides an informal meeting area with a beverage station dispensing hot and cold drinks.
Noisy operations such dishwashing, deliveries, food preparation, waste collation and hospitality trolley make-up are out of sight of the servery and customers’ view.
