There are opportunities to dig, plant and grow vegetables and plants in the plots and polytunnels on site, or pick, cook and serve food in the newly developed training kitchen. All under the watchful eye of qualified tutors who have a passion for their craft and for teaching young people.

Home Independence Services was asked to come up with a design and installation program to bring a disused building back into use, creating an accessible teaching kitchen and store room for the young adults, allowing them to take the produce grown on site a stage further with catering course opportunities developed on site.

Creating an accessible teaching kitchen

Accessible Kitchen Plan

Stage 1: Technical Surveys

Our Survey and Design team began a series of Technical Surveys to investigate and overcome the challenges related to meeting current building regs requirements and creating an area suitable for a teaching kitchen

Stage 2: Specialist Design

Incorporating the specialist knowledge of our Occupational Therapists, we set out designing the teaching kitchen and incorporating products that would be flexible to meet the requirements of different users, whilst being robust and long lasting to ensure years of sustained use.

Stage 3: Kitchen Installation

Liaising with specialist suppliers and co-ordinating our dedicated and professional tradesmen, we set out creating the ideal kitchen.

The Results...Delighted Client`s

"Thank you and your team once again for your commitment and hard work in helping to deliver this project on time, to budget and to a very high standard. Everyone gasps (in a good way!) when they see the kitchen for the first time so now I just have to fill it with young people and community groups!" – Tim Knight, Chief Executive
