Download Case Study


Vision Commercial Kitchens were already working on the new City Campus for The Manchester College, when the client asked Vision to also look at the design for a new foodservice counter at their Openshaw Campus. Vision designed and developed the space according to the client's requirements and the busy throughput that the counter would receive on a daily basis.

The space available for the counter was restricted, therefore the design required innovative thinking to ensure it was compact, yet flexible and could meet the busy needs of the college. Vision developed 3D visuals of the proposed design which gave a more visual, real-life representation of what the finished counter would look like. This ensured that the client was confident moving forward with our recommendations as they could envisage the finished project and how it would work for their facility.

Working closely with the operators throughout, Vision designed, supplied and installed the new foodservice counter, complete with hot and cold grab and go units. The finished project meets the needs of the client and provides a flexible and efficient counter.

"Vision Commercial Kitchens worked with us on our Openshaw Coffee Shop project and their ability to bring our brief to life was seamless. They worked with myself and the team to review the design at each stage and problem solve giving us alternative ideas and showing how the scheme would look for each idea. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The budget was adhered to and the installation was a trouble free experience, even during a pandemic. We are also working with them on some much larger projects and the experience and service they offer is the same irrelevant of the size of project. I look forward to working with this dedicated team on future projects." 

- Cathy Gates, Head of Campus Redevelopment, The Manchester College
