Bristol-based distributor Western Blueprint has overseen a project to design and install a new kitchen at the iconic Somerset House in central London.
David Canham, MD of Western Blueprint said: “We were delighted to be appointed as the contractor for the Somerset House project. We have an outstanding track record of completing projects on time and it was of utmost importance that our suppliers shared the same ethos.”
Due to the restricted size of the kitchen, the project required an innovative extraction system design as there was a substantial amount of air to move through a limited amount of space.
The dealer therefore called in Bradford-based ventilation equipment firm Mansfield Pollard to help with the project, as it has experience of developing bespoke solutions for challenging kitchen projects.
Working together with Western Blueprint, Mansfield Pollard overcame the logistical challenges and designed and installed four kitchen canopies, the largest of which was a 10metre L-shaped wall mounted unit.
Fire rated ductwork systems were also installed to serve each of the canopies: in total handling an air volume of 5.60m³/s. The company then completed the project with a bespoke sound attenuation system and high level grease/odour reduction technology ensuring that the stringent planning conditions were met.
Scott Donoghue, kitchen ventilation manager at Mansfield Pollard said: “The brief for Somerset House was incredibly challenging and enabled us to demonstrate our ability to provide a complete packaged solution.
“Our reputation has been built on the successful delivery of complex projects and we are delighted that Western Blueprint was impressed with our team.”
