The Abraxas Solution
What recommendations/solutions did we make?
Abraxas worked alongside the client’s main contractor to design a kitchen layout and Extraction system to suit the new floorplan. Being an all-electric kitchen with no gas, energy efficient appliances were specified including an induction range and combi ovens, high specification pass through dishwasher, refrigeration and fast recovery fryers. As part of the safety regime fire suppression was also incorporated to the cookline and extraction ductwork. Given the opening hours and cyclical nature of the customer profile efficient hot food holding equipment was specified.
