Why use a commercial kitchen design company?

When planning a redesign or updating your commercial kitchen, you may be tempted to plan and source equipment independently. However, there are many reasons why choosing a specialist commercial company like Vision Commercial Kitchens could be the best choice and help you save in the long run as commercial kitchen systems and installations can be incredibly complex.


Specialist companies like Vision Commercial Kitchens are extremely knowledgeable - they know the process inside out and therefore will be invaluable in understanding your procedures, layout and menu. With back of house, efficient use of space is key both in terms of equipment that is multifunctional and where this equipment will reside in comparison to other areas. Additionally, they can offer technical expertise on things such as extraction systems, extract supply and flow rate, M&E (mechanical & electrical information) and can dovetail into your design team to ensure that the project is looked at holistically. Such considerations are where a specialist company will be invaluable in assisting you with the planning of your new facility or redesigning your existing facility.

Therefore, they can consider all requirements to ensure they design the best possible catering environment based on the specific equipment requirements which will be most beneficial to your establishment, and at the optimum cost and/or budget.

Project Management

Specialist kitchen and servery design companies like Vision, also manage the whole design and fit out process and can work alongside your other specialist trades such as Main Contractor, fit-out contractor and mechanical and electrical installation companies to offer support along the way to ensure that your new design or redesign exactly meets your requirements.

We can also offer training and a planned preventative service programme for your equipment after the initial fit out.

Although it is always best to begin the planning process as early as possible, if this is not feasible then choosing a reliable catering design and supply company with a proven track record is highly recommended.
