Chester-based kitchen house C&C has landed its first ever project outside of the UK.
The company has been contracted to complete a fifth-floor kitchen at fashion house Burberry’s flagship showroom in Paris, France.
C&C has been given just over two weeks from receiving the order to complete the project, but despite the unusually short turnaround time, the company had no qualms about taking the job.
“Any project that has a work window of only 16 days is always going to be a challenge but adding to that we will be working in a new country for the first time and in the busy heart of one of the world’s great cities,” said C&C’s project director Paul Parry.
Burberry is installing the food service facility to serve buyers and other clients visiting its showroom just off the Champs Elysees.
“Our project manager Keith Hartharn is already on site and we have had to carefully coordinate with suppliers to ensure the right European credentials to support our client,” added Parry.
The kitchen has been designed by foodservice consultants, Tricon, which C&C has worked with on a number of other projects recently, including the installation of a catering facility at Google’s HQ in London.
