G.E.C Anderson gives unique performance at historic London cultural venue

  • 24 Jun 2019

G.E.C Anderson was recently chosen to supply and install custom designed stainless steel units and worktops in the food preparation area of the country’s oldest purpose-built cultural entertainment venue, Blackheath Halls in Lee Road, South-East London.

The work at the historic Blackheath Halls has been carried out by Sykes and Son on behalf of the operating company, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

The project included the redevelopment of the Great Hall, bar and box office/foyer areas.

With such construction work as electrical rewiring, plumbing and plastering completed, G.E.C Anderson’s project management team carried out a precise survey of the food preparation area, located to one at the North end of the main bar, in order for the design and fabrication process to commence.

The conservation considerations to the work within Blackheath Halls required a bespoke solution from G.E.C Anderson.

The sector specialist manufacturer’s workshops duly produced a set of three base cabinets in stainless steel and a single-piece L-shaped stainless steel work-surface with integral sink and splashbacks.

Such custom made installations offer a pristine appearance that is ideal for such public facing applications while helping establishments maintain an efficient cleaning regime essential in achieving the high standards of hygiene essential in commercial premises.

Hannah Benton, Operations Manager for Blackheath Halls whose responsibilities include the servery area, commented: “The refurbishment of the different areas of the venue – including the general building work, updating of plumbing and electrical services and installation of the new servery facilities, was completed to schedule for the reopening in November.

“All of the equipment matches the scope of the works effectively as well as hygiene requirements.”
