Dawson Design Projects takes starring role in hotel group’s kitchen mission


Dawson Design Projects teamed with a UK-based hotel group to provide a complete kitchen overhaul for its Bury St Edmunds property.

The Chestnut Group, which owns and operates six boutique hotels, collaborated with the commercial kitchen fitting company to refit the kitchen of its Northgate property, which had been completely gutted.

Reg Dawson, of Dawson Design Projects, was project manager of the Northgate fit-out.

Philip Turner, founder of The Chestnut Group, said: “He [Dawson] understands what we’re trying to do as a business. I think kitchen design and the execution of a new build of a commercial kitchen is probably an art rather than a science.”

The kitchen, which had a set of unique requirements due to the age of the hotel, was fitted with Precision counters and glass frosters.

Turner added: “The Northgate is a Victorian building and one of our concerns with refrigeration was the flow of air, we needed to ensure that the fridges could work efficiently with the ventilation that we could give them.

“Equipment like the Precision glass frosters has a real impact in terms of drinks presentation. If your customers think your product is great, they promote it via social media. They end up doing your marketing for you.”

Turner has been working with Precision since 2012, when he founded The Chestnut Group.
