Secondly, a new kitchen was designed and fitted to support the Oxfordshire’s Pantry’s offering of fresh sandwiches, salads, homemade cakes, soft drinks and coffees.

CDG will also enhance customer flow within the Water Terrace Café, with new retail and service counters, together with providing new restaurant furniture.

Back on Kingston University’s campus for a third time, following a second project completed in 2015, CDG will be converting an existing break out and foodservice area into a modern high-street themed café, bar and restaurant space for the surrey-based university’s students.

Named The Picton Rooms, the space will be designed as a café during academic hours with a wider brief to evolve into a bar in the evening.

Furthermore, Babraham Institute, an independent charitable life sciences institute involved in biomedical research, will receive a new dining area for its 300 plus staff at its parkland estate just south of Cambridge.

With work previously undertaken in 2014, this will be CDG’s third project for the institute which will see the business design and completely refurbish and fit-out a new restaurant and café space.

While CDG is returning to several former customers following successful contract wins, the business has also recently completed a design and refurbishment project with casual dining brand Wrapchic.

The Indian burrito company has opened a 28 seater site in Milton Keynes shopping centre.

The concept’s latest site takes inspiration from Indian markets and street food, with a space that amalgamates industrial materials with a vibrant colour scheme – brought together by custom-made furniture and distinct branded graphics.

CDG has also been appointed to design Farmer Copley’s restaurant and café space – Moo and Beast.

The concept will reflect the agricultural roots of the West Yorkshire business with locally sourced materials and natural finishes.

CDG’s design will also incorporate a private dining room which can also be used as a meeting space.
