The Brief

Chef Duet Catering approached Northwave electrical in Spring 2021 to help transform their new premises into a commercial kitchen, bakery, dining area and office space. No small task as the they had tight deadlines to meet in order to be operating by July 2021. 

The building, an old school house had hosted many different businesses in the past and after assessing their power requirements and new layout for the building we decided a full rewire was the quickest and safest option. 

Open Plan Design

Chef Duet had cleverly sub divided the space into a cook line, prep area, bakery and private dining area. Chef duet wanted to allow diners to see the cooking and prep areas so they could be immersed into the whole experience. 

The challenge for Northwave was how light all of these spaces as the building was one large vaulted ceiling space.

Cost and preserving the existing features prevented running cables through the ceiling so to complement the commercial kitchen feel we opted for a full cable tray system suspended just above the walls of each space. This provided a great way to sub divide all the lighting but all run the fire alarm and smoke alarm cables out of sight. 

We selected pendent lights from the excellent Industville company, backed up with discretely hidden LED Battens along key areas like the cook line extraction system.
