THE WAREWASHING SOLUTION
Installing a restaurant kitchen in Heathrow is a complex business – especially if it’s ‘airside’. For the Airedale Group, who managed the project, the complexity was somewhat aggravated by the fact that the install period was cut from ten days to three, due to building delays. The situation got even worse when, on day three, at the 11th hour, suddenly a new dishwasher had to be sourced and installed.
“We contacted Winterhalter and they pulled out the stops to help us get a passthrough hood machine to site in time,” says Jason Wade, key account manager at Airedale.
“It was delivered at 3am and up and running at 7am, in time for us to open,” says Nils Braude, operational director for Delaware North’s travel sector.
Alongside the passthrough hood dishwasher, The Commission also has two Winterhalter glasswashers. “We want all our equipment to be clean – especially the equipment that our customers use for drinking and eating!” says Nils. “So with our warewashers, cleanliness is the key, along with reliability and consistency, over a long period of time: we’re a very busy operation, open from 6am to 11pm. Plus, there’s the need for speed and labour-saving. We don’t want to have to double-wash anything.
