GLS Foodservice Designs has completed the design, supply and installation of the Albion Clerkenwell, which has a selection of kitchens over a number of floors.
Albion Clerkenwell is the latest addition to the small group of food and drink destinations established by Prescott & Conran.
Ian Wood, executive chef for Prescott & Conran described it as a “large and ambitious project”. He noted that plenty of challenges had to be overcome.
For the refrigeration and frozen storage Graham Stow, managing director of GLS, chose products from Precision Refrigeration.
Commenting on the install, Stow said: “We knew they’d be ideal for this project. Precision’s products are solidly built, reliable and they look good in public-facing areas.”
With such a broad range of activity, Albion needs a lot of storage capacity. Precision supplied upright freezer cabinets, and a selection of refrigerated and freezer storage counters.
Models like the LCU211 freezer are designed so they can be used as preparation tables in locations where space is at a premium, with stainless steel construction providing a hygienic and durable work surface.
Albion also has a compact LSS300 freezer, which offers the same storage capacity as a traditional two-door GN1/1 counter but with a 30% smaller footprint.
Chilled storage is handled by four MCU311 three-door counters, which are used to allow easy access to fresh ingredients in the dynamic environment of a public-facing kitchen.
