Royal Holloway University
The brief was to include a dining-in and takeaway service from the Refectory, known as The Hub, for 1,000 students, corporate hospitality for 400 with several functions taking place at the same time, a Coffee & Deli servery, and a separate dining facility on the lower floor for 300 summer language students or private use within the existing refurbished building.
This was achieved by the main kitchen undertaking the preparation and bulk cooking with the majority of theatre cooking being front of house on a central island with induction woks, pasta cookers and waffle irons.
The main servery provides a call order grill bar, rotisserie, pizza merchandiser (pizzas being baked on a conveyor oven in the main kitchen along with cookies to be sold in the Coffee & Deli), a traditional hot section, large separate salad bars and several chilled multi decks.
From our Client
“With Sterling being an independent consultancy, we had Andrew and Elaine’s undivided attention. The equipment is good quality and they specified to a higher standard than we had planed - that is the advantage of consultancy like Sterling, they know what’s on the market and what it does. We’ve had very few snagging problems with the equipment. It went in, it fitted and it worked.”
