PKL Group, which claims to have the UK’s largest range of temporary kitchens for hire, has recently undertaken two projects to supply temporary kitchen complexes at prestigious London schools.
St Paul’s School near Hammersmith Bridge, on the south side of the Thames, is an independent school offering an outstanding, all-round education for gifted boys aged 13 to 18 years.
The PKL team has been busy installing a large temporary complex with a number of the company’s modular units linked together, and joined to a tented dining room, which the school had also hired for the duration of the project.
“We also installed a range of servery equipment in the dining area. We’ve worked with the supplier of the tented dining room many times before, so the teams on site worked together to successfully complete the installation," the company said. The facility will be on site for over 12 months while the existing school kitchen undergoes major refurbishment works."
Still in south London, in the leafy environs of Clapham Common, PKL has been busy at Eaton House The Manor School, an independent preparatory school where, due to limited access, a crane was pressed into service to lift temporary kitchen units over the buildings into the area set aside for the facility.
The units were subsequently moved into position using forklift trucks. As with St Paul’s School, this kitchen facility will be used while the school’s existing kitchen is refurbished.
