The Catering Insight Distributor of the Year, Project Management Award, sponsored by Welbilt, honours the distributor that has excelled in project management and delivered very special kitchen schemes this year.
And suppliers decided that this year that the winner should be KCCJ, with 35% of the vote.
In the last 12 months, the Kent-based distributor oversaw the completion of its massive £35m project at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium in north London.
11 years in design, the scheme involved three different architects, with KCCJ spending 2 years managing the project onsite as a shell and core fitout.
Noted by the project director of the site as the stand out contractor, KCCJ was also asked to design, build and install 60 different bars at the stadium complex, equating to three per week, when the football club was concerned that its build company would not be able to complete this in time.
KCCJ’s Kevin and Julie Slatter collected the trophy. Kevin commented on the win: “We are very happy with it,” while Julie added: “The team back at the office will be very pleased with this. There’s lots more stadium work to come for 2020.”
