HK Projects has kitted out the training kitchens at Barnsley College’s new campus building and called on Winterhalter-owned Classeq to provide the backbone of the site’s warewashing infrastructure.
HK Projects has been involved in the design and project management of the new catering kitchens since their inception three years ago.
Jason Fish of HK Projects says the company selected Classeq equipment for a variety of reasons.
“We had to keep the budget down, without cutting back on the quality of training that would be delivered to the catering students,” he said. “For the kitchen we specified Classeq machines for their reliability, performance and affordability.”
HK Projects has installed three Classeq machines: an Alto 100 dishwasher capable of washing up to 100 racks per hour; a Hydro 957 pass through dishwasher with a 1.5 or three-minute wash cycle; and a Viso 55 front loading utensil washer that has intensive two, four and six-minute wash cycles.
All three training kitchens at the college are in use every day, with as many as 70 students involved in the three daily classes that take place. As each student will usually have one or two gastronorm containers to clear away, plus any pots and pans, the washers are constantly being put through their paces.
“The Classeq machines are standing up well to the throughput at the college,” insists Fish.
