University Kitchen
Regents Park, London

A private university providing fresh food across its campus

Idyllically situated in Regent’s Park, Regents’ University, one of only five private universities in Britain, consists of five very successful schools offering pre-degree and foundation courses through to undergraduate and postgraduate programs to students from all over the world. A recent refurbishment included re-designing and upgrading the university’s five catering facilities used by more than 2500 students, staff and visitors every day. Nelson Catering Equipment won the contract to refurbish and re-fit all five sites.

The most important of these, the Refectory, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for more than 2000 students so needed a strategically designed food service system. Custom made units gave us the flexibility we needed but, before work started, we produced several sets of plans and elevations to help the client anticipate the finished result.

The servery area is now compartmentalised to simplify the students’ choice, maximise food display and prevent queues. There is a sandwich area, an ‘L’ shaped salad counter, a soup counter and a hot and cold beverage area. Hot meals are sited directly in front of the kitchen so food can be replenished while a further hot and cold display holds desserts.
