C&C’s team first met Nigel after he had visited one of their other client’s kitchens at Simon Radley’s Chester Grosvenor Hotel. Working closely together to achieve the unique scheme meant close attention to every detail, continuous development of the design ideas and extensive use of C&C’s BIM 3D modelling software. Designs were created in 3D and then studied for potential difficulties before any installation work took place.
The scheme includes a standalone Charvet cooking suite, an Electrolux Thermaline suite, Meiko dish and glassing washing units, bespoke refrigeration from local supplier Universal Cooling and a prototype solid-fuel oven from Esse.
At the recent Obsession event held annually at Northcote, where many of the world’s top chefs visit to prepare stunning food for a ten day festival of food, more than one chef was seen casting envious glances at the facilities. One was even overheard saying he was “going back to ask for a new kitchen”.
The project is part of the overall £7million expansion and refurbishment currently in full swing at Northcote, which includes the addition of a cookery school, a new-look restaurant, private dining suite and new bedrooms at their exclusive country retreat.
C&C’s Commercial Director Trevor Clark who was heavily involved in the project from the beginning commented: “It’s been an exciting and challenging project as we’ve more than doubled the space available for the back of house team and provided an installation which is personally customised to the chef’s requirements. There is a real sense of calmness in the kitchen despite the team working flat out and producing world class cuisine.”
