Newport-based distributor, Shine Food Machinery, has outfitted a new staff eatery at tech giant Microsoft’s new London campus in Paddington.
The project formed part of the software maker’s long range plan to create a ‘one Microsoft’ London premises that is optimally aligned to current and future needs.
The successful main contractor Overbury was selected to complete the works at the former Nokia site, working over six floors, including major refurbishment works to the level 4 main kitchen and foodservice area.
The project, which was designed by Tricon Foodservice Consultants, used a mixture of existing and new equipment to deliver to high expectations set by both Microsoft and contract caterers, Baxter Storey.
Shine Food Machinery believes it was selected to deliver the project due to its understanding of the project requirements through the tender process.
The dealer worked with Pioneer, Foster Coldstores, Foster Refrigerator, Trak Hupfer and Hatco to produce a high standard kitchen for Microsoft.
Senior project manager Carl Stowell-Smith commented: “We have been given extremely positive feedback from the main client, who has said the team here in London has just set a new standard for global premises at Microsoft.
“Never before have they seen a project achieve such high levels of quality at practical completion.”
