Tralee College Of Technology
Co Kerry, Ireland
We worked with the award winning Tralee Institute of Technology, in designing and equipping a series of inter linked training kitchens for the new building.
A key objective was to reflect the diversity of today’s foodservice industry in a safe, practical, student friendly training environment. The brief was to equip a single building with 3 x 18 student training kitchens, a bakery, 2 production kitchens, a demonstration kitchen, a central wash up for both crockery and glassware plus a 70 cover multi function restaurant and bar. The kitchens have to encompass everything from classic five star dining to bulk meal production, including speciality menu styles using woks, tandoor ovens and the latest baking and combination oven technology.
Our innovative mobile student stations consist of gastronorm size sinks with inset cutting boards to enable them to extend the workout area, undercounter 3 drawer refrigerators to train them on food segregation and either a mobile electric or gas range. All equipment is on quick disconnect hoses to allow for thorough cleaning or for the equipment to be interchangeable.
For these ground breaking facilities we were honoured with an FCSI “Excellence in Design” award.
