Wootton Bassett-based GLS Foodservice Designs has completed the design, supply and installation of all foodservice areas at the Albion Clerkenwell, the latest addition to the small group of food and drink destinations established by Prescott & Conran.

The dealer was contracted to provide the design and equipment for a selection of kitchens, including a bakery, over a number of floors.

Based in the newly redeveloped Turnmill Building, in Farringdon, London, the eatery includes a Grill Room, a Pie Room and an Oyster Bar.

For the refrigeration and frozen storage, Graham Stow, MD of GLS, chose products from Precision Refrigeration.

“We knew they’d be ideal for this project,” said Stow. “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 aimed at providing a hygienic and durable work surface.

Albion also has a compact LSS300 freezer, which should offer 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 access to fresh ingredients in the dynamic environment of a public-facing kitchen.

All Precision counters are customisable with either doors or heavy-duty drawers, which are removable for cleaning.

Door and drawer locks are included on all models, providing additional security if required.

A controller should allow for precise temperature control, while audio visual temperature alarms are fitted as standard, helping with HACCP compliance.
