The Wentworth Hotel Kitchen Refurbishment

The Wentworth Hotel is situated in the historic town of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coastline, within an area of outstanding natural beauty and only a stone’s throw from the beach.

Following successfully refurbishing the hotels wash up and vegetable preparation area in 2011, Caterplan were asked to return and completely refurbish the expansive kitchen, pastry section, food preparation and beverage area of the hotel with new hygienic solutions by Altro. 

The project involved carefully removing all of the existing catering equipment and setting to one side before completing all of the wall, floor and ceiling finishes and installing new mechanical and electrical services for the equipment. New manholes and gullies also had to be installed to accommodate the Altro heavy duty vinyl flooring.  Altro white rock was fitted to all of the walls with stainless steel corner protectors where necessary.  The ceiling in the main cooking area required a suspended ceiling with washable ceiling tiles.  The other food preparation areas had Altro’s ceiling plank system installed. Finally, all of the catering equipment had to be reinstalled and commissioned ready for the chefs to move back in.

This project had to be completed within a planned ten day closure whilst other refurbishment works were being implemented to the front of house area.  With bookings be taken for when the hotel was due to reopen there wasn’t any room for error, it was literally all hands on deck!

Thanks to our reliable team of skilled tradesman the project was completed to the usual high standards and handed over on time!
