The City Learning Centre regenerates a brown field site in the
centre of Portsmouth, in the heart of the student quarter. The 7
storey, 55,000m² building comprises 6 large teaching kitchens
including a dedicated Fish & Meat preparation Kitchen and a
dedicated operational bakery and an additional two fully
working kitchens serving a staff/student refectory (top floor)
and a public access silver service restaurant (ground floor). The
scheme also accommodates a number of IT facilities, a health
and childcare facility, a dental suite with laboratory, a crèche
and a number of general teaching classrooms.
The clients brief was to provide a 1st class facility utilising specialist equipment conversant within the restaurant industry. Equipment included 12 Charvet Suites, 7 Rational Combination Ovens, 3 Meiko Dishwashers, 4 Williams Cold/Freezer Rooms & 20 Halton Ventmaster Canopies including the Capture Jet System. This aided the client’s commitment to the BREEAM initiative.
