The Open University, Milton Keynes

Located in Milton Keynes the Walton Hall site is the Head Quarters for The Open University. The Catering Hub is a brand new purpose-build catering facility. The new building contained a new Kitchen, Refectory Area, Café Common Room, Private Restaurant & Outside Dining.

We worked closely with The Russell Partnership to provide a facility that fulfilled the University’s requirements in terms of Size, Quality, Style & energy efficiency.

Our contract contained 2 key elements. The Refectory & Cafe have been designed to provide hot & cold dishes throughout the day with a variety of snacks and drinks also available. The production Kitchen has to respond to the high demand at peak times. The ethos through the project was quality, both front & back of house. This was achieved via one piece cooking islands & High quality finishes to the servery counters using materials such as Granite.

Equipment included MKN Island cooking Suites & Combination Ovens, DPL Canopies & SDU’s, Hobart Mixers, IMC Waste Products, Meiko Pot washers, Hobart Dishwashers, Fosters Refrigeration & Essex Fabrications Counters.
