Specialising in Eastern cuisine, Tampopo had proved a hit in the north of England and was expanding into London by opening a new 100 cover restaurant. Perfectly located by Oxford Street, close to Fitzrovia’s pubs and bars, the new restaurant proved great for work lunches, post-work eats, a break from shopping or just a chill.
The objective for the team at Key Integrated Services was to design and deliver new mechanical services installations. The new systems not only had to serve their intended purpose but also had to fit into the overall design of the internal space.
Being located in central London, lack of external plant space proved a challenge to position all intake and exhaust terminations and condensing unit plant. Managing deliveries, storage of materials, equipment and general access to the site was difficult at times.
An aesthetically acceptable design was developed with the team that was discreet enough not to affect the theme in the restaurant. All heat rejection plant had limited space externally and had to be positioned to satisfy the manufacturer’s requirements plus leave space for the discharge ductwork from the kitchen canopy installation. These careful considerations from the team at Key ensured a suitable solution was delivered.
The project was delivered ahead of programme and has proved to be another part of the growth of this fantastic chain. We wish the business continued success for the future.
