Our Design Journey
At our heart we are a design-led company, with over 75% of our commercial catering projects we complete every year having being designed and specified by our experienced team. We have one of the largest design offices in our industry and also employ our own BIM Manager and BIM Coordinator.
We play an integral role in supporting main contractors’ own bids for major government build initiatives such as Priority Schools; working closely with both the Design Managers and projects’ architects. We also frequently work directly for end-user clients on their own commercial kitchen designs, with a number of our national key accounts and pub chain clients benefiting from our 32+ years’ experience.
Our commercial catering design experience extends to all front-of-house areas, including stunning interior design and retail spaces that our Arc division creates.
Every commercial catering design and interior design represent their own challenges; every client has their own aspirations and it is our responsibility to marry both to produce cost-effective, inspiration designs all stakeholders can be proud of. The following short Video illustrates the four main stages of our Design Journey. To begin yours today, call our main office on the number below or complete our simple contact form.
“we found Airedale to be wholly professional and wiling to engage with us from the onset, listening to our own concerns and addressing these in a timely manner. We are very pleased with the overall project.”
“We were hugely impressed with the professional presentation made by Airedale, their project sales manager had clearly done his research prior to our initial meeting and had a number of detailed, thoughtful solutions to our particular challenges. All of their staff were conscientious and the complex project was delivered within the strict timescale and budget allocated.”
Parker's Garden Centre
I’m extremely satisfied with our new laundry equipment. Laundry tasks have become far more time and cost efficient. Airedale Laundry Solutions’ customer service has been exceptional and I will definitely recommend them and be using them again for any equipment and servicing requirements.”
Redcliff Guest House, Weymouth
“Airedale have a great can-do attitude, are willing to help and have a great understanding of their trade and working on Heritage sites, meaning that that they are good and prompt at problem solving.”
“The team at Airedale provided a reassuring sense of professionalism within our development. Their holistic considered approach meant that aspects that would not necessarily fall within their remit were identified and where required resolved prior to any issue or delay arising. Their willingness to share their experience and knowledge allowed the project to be delivered to the standard which exceeded our expectation.”
Langdale Estate and Spa
“Since the restaurant has opened there has been an increase in the staff footfall, with the well designed layout coupled with the use of the latest technology keeping queues down to a minimum. The whole installation despite its complexity was relatively pain free with the communication between Airedale’s Project Manager and ourselves being a key factor.”
Advanced Engineering Centre
“Our new catering facilities are second to none. As a primary provider of professional chef qualifications within the South West it was imperative to have a design which enabled excellent quality teaching and training. As a catering team we are extremely pleased with the final results; with the excellent support of Airedale it has enabled us to ensure first rate delivery of teaching in a first rate environment and will no doubt continue to aspire future chefs in future years.”
Petroc College, Barnstaple
“The Airedale Group were appointed because of their depth of knowledge and experience in delivering similar schemes. Their staff were very professional and on-hand to answer any queries we had whilst our Chef’s have commented that it is one of the best designed kitchens they have worked in.”
“We were continually impressed with Airedale’s performance on this scheme. They assisted us with value engineering options throughout the tender process; were very competitive commercially and managed the on-site works seamlessly. Further, following practical completion they have attended to the operator’s queries very quickly and held themselves professionally whilst working in a live hotel environment. ”
