RDA was recently appointed by a major contract caterer to create a new Costa Coffee for a community-based hospital in south west London.
Its team of designers worked with the contractor and the hospital, which is part of the largest healthcare provider in south west London, to transform an outdated café into a new look Costa Coffee.
The interior fit out was based on the latest Costa brand and specification with a modern look and feel and state of the art equipment.
Installation involved considerable re-modelling as well as the removal of equipment from the existing cafe. The RDA team had to work to a tight timeframe and be sensitive to working in a hospital environment.
Equipment fitted included Ecofridge chilled multidecks, Electrolux Professional refrigeration, an Ice-O-Matic ice machine, a Winterhalter dishwasher, a Merrychef oven and Pelican Rouge Coffee machines.
The result is reportedly a fresh and contemporary space located within a prime position on the hospital’s ground floor, ready to serve the thousands of patients, staff and visitors.
Neil Addyman, director at RDA said: “RDA has worked on several Costa Coffee’s for NHS Trusts across the UK and we are delighted to bring a fresh, modern and welcoming look and feel for the hospital community.”
Nick Galloway, business director, healthcare, at the contract caterer said: “I am delighted with the finished unit as it brings the high street to our hospital. We have received numerous complements about the look and feel of it from our patients, visitors and staff, and this is reflected in a 30% increase in sales since it opened.”
