On-Site Kitchen Rentals has revealed that its contract to supply temporary kitchens during the summer Olympic Games was worth more than £450,000 to the company.
The company negotiated the supply of a large number of portable kitchen and dining installations for the event, and provided a new range of cold rooms for internal and external use.
In total, it carried out 22 installations and utilised 400 pieces of catering equipment across two sites that it managed in Greenwich and Eton Dorney.
The Lancashire-based outfit had to design and build a whole new range of temporary portable kitchens and kiosks for the project, noticeably increasing the size of its hire fleet and bringing it up to date with the latest developments.
On-Site Kitchen Rentals also had engineers based permanently in London. The company claims that it only received one service call for the 400 pieces of kit it supplied for the Games, but says engineers were kept busy changing more than 500 47kg gas bottles during their period on site.
The company has since met with “representatives” of the Brazil Olympic Games organising committee to discuss possible future collaboration, it confirmed.
