    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Stainless steel is a very useful carbon and iron alloy metal. This combination allows the metal to be both very strong and sturdy, it also results in a surface that is easy to clean and hygienic. These are all desirable features for a commercial kitchen bench. Stainless steel equipment is durable, long lasting, unbreakable, and safe; also, unlike wood, steel is free from termite infestations. Perhaps the best thing about steel benches is that they are very enduring. This is because the steel alloy can withstand a lot of knocks, scrapes, pressure, and weight exerted on to it—this is why it is an excellent material for commercial benches.

    There are numerous applications for stainless steel benches, both indoor and out. As long as the steel isn’t always covered in water, steel benches make great outdoor equipment, especially in a BBQ area. Indoors, apart from the kitchen, stainless steel benches are also used in laboratories. This is for the same useful qualities the material shows in the kitchen: hygiene, easy-to-clean, robustness, durability. An added advantage is that, in most cases, steel is usually manufactured in such a way that it is stainless and rust resistant.

    Stainless steel possesses a unique lustre and is resistant to corrosion, rust, and water stains. The maintenance cost is low, and the material is (theoretically) 100% recyclable. Stainless steel benches are welded onto the frame and the worktop is brushed so that bacteria cannot easily build up in any area. These benches are customisable and the client can specify any particular needs for the design of their stainless steel bench.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Stainless steel benches are shipped after manufacturing and assembling the various parts so they can be used immediately. Some benches have flared feet which permit bolting them to the floor and also includes handy electrical/plumbing outlets. Apart from being durable, these benches have remarkable construction and possess high-tech design which makes them apt to give support to even the heaviest of assemblies.

    Look for great deals on custom designed stainless steel benches Melbourne for your warehouse, office, home or factory at Brandon Industries. There are several customisable stainless steel options to suit all of your needs.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    In any hotel, restaurant, or café, the kitchen is one of the most important areas to keep clean. With this in mind, most commercial kitchens use stainless steel splash-backs, surfaces, cookware, cooker hoods, and appliances because they are both hygienic and easy to keep clean. Although low-maintenance, stainless steel does need periodic cleaning. This is generally quite easy provided that it has not been damaged in any major way. Custom stainless steel equipment is also durable and resistant to discolouration, rust, and corrosion; although without proper care, these can affect stainless steel units. Poor maintenance as well as the use of metal scourers or harsh cleaning agents may damage or dull the surface and can potentially cause pitting.

    Periodic, thorough cleaning is critical to keep these types of products in proper repair and to remove any potential food contaminants such as dirt, dust, grime, and anything left over from the day’s work. This may seem a big task if you aren't sure what you're doing, however, when done on a day-to-day basis, as it should be for commercial hygiene reasons, it becomes easy and manageable.

    Melbourne stainless steel splash-back benches should be cleaned regularly by using a cloth soaked in warm water and then wiped immediately with a dry, soft cloth to stop water spots forming. For tougher cleaning, use mild cleaning solution or special cleaners. It is important to use non-abrasive tools and to make sure you do not scratch, dent or put any pressure marks on the steel. Spray your chosen cleaning solution on the surface and wipe off with a clean dry cloth. It is important to follow the grain when cleaning such surfaces.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Using recommended cleaning products will remove any residue left on the equipment and give it a lustrous finish. After cleaning you can buff the stainless steel splash-back benches with a soft, clean, dry cloth to enhance shine and remove additional residue. Specialised polish or cleaner will help keep your stainless steel splash-back benches gleaming and can eliminate any scratches that may occur from daily use. With these cleaners, always follow the metal grain, especially when applying the finishing wipe. This helps preserve the finish and helps get rid of the dust and dirt that might be trapped in microscopic grooves.

    Cleaning stainless steel splashback benches is usually easy, though sometimes you may find some stains difficult to remove. For stubborn stains or scratches on your stainless steel splashback benches, use an official cleaning product. The cleaning instructions will vary from product to product. Never use metal scouring pads or metal brushes when cleaning this stainless steel splashback benches as it can cause rust spots to form.

    You may prefer to use natural cleaners for cleaning stainless steel splashback benches. Baking soda sprinkled on a damp sponge cleans beautifully, or instead of sprinkling the baking soda, you can mix it with a mild liquid soap or detergent to make a thick creamy texture. Remember always go with the grain. Stainless steel sinks and shelves are usually standard in any commercial kitchen, even some bathrooms, because this metal is so durable. Water spots can make your stainless steel splashback benches look drab pretty quickly so keeping it dry and clean will go a long way in maintaining its shine. Light water staining can usually be removed with warm water and a soft dry cloth to polish off.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Both the potential and functionality of a commercial kitchen are significantly influenced by the underlying design and layout plan. In order to improve efficiency, without affecting running cost, you will have to setup your commercial kitchen fitout very carefully. The tips provided in this article can help you in this regard, and thereby potentially increase the profitability of your restaurant.

    Purchase and installation of refrigeration units

    In order to improve productivity of your commercial kitchen you should buy various refrigeration units, as per the size and needs of your restaurant, and install them perfectly to get the best results. You can buy a walk-in cold room, a refrigerated storage room cunningly placed in your kitchen that will maintain a constant low temperature keeping your food safe and usable. If your restaurant is small then you can buy a large freezer instead of walk-in refrigeration unit. The size of your commercial kitchen freezer depends upon the scope of your business and available space. They are categorised by the number of their doors, and are available in single, double, and triple—or even a customised solution that is perfectly tailored to your fitout. Supplemental refrigeration units and a refrigerated line station can also be an option for your commercial kitchen as it allows your kitchen staff to cool down their preparations before serving them to your customers.

    Purchase and installation of storage units

    You should storage units to store non-perishable and perishable food items, equipment and dry foods separately. These units can also be custom made by us to use the optimal amount of space and allow for a perfect solution to your kitchen layout.

    Purchase and installation of equipment for cooking food

    In order to upgrade your commercial kitchen, you will have to buy and install certain commercial kitchen units to help you cook various types of foods; this includes: a HVAC ventilation system, a restaurant grade hood for your commercial cooking range, and a broiler or stove top. The ventilation system will pull out harmful materials and carbon content in the environment of the kitchen, a task aided by the hood that is designed to cover the stove top of the cooking range. Of course, the oven/cooking range that you are purchasing needs to be suited to the particular fitout of your commercial kitchen—a task that we can definitely help with. These units are available in various sizes and are typically classified by their number of burners. Additional equipment may also be necessary, such as a fat grill, convection oven, and a deep fat fryer according to the size and type of your restaurant.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Purchase of small wares and food preparation station

    With all of the large machinery carefully selected and ordered within your design layout, the next step is to fill your kitchen with all of the utensils and other smaller items that are necessary for an active kitchen. This includes such items as cutting surfaces, knives, mixing bowls, wooden spoons, and all of the required bench-top equipment. Luckily for you, we have all of that right here, and the acquisition of such items need not be a schlep to another company to pick through some assorted catalogue of kitchen utensils of haphazard quality. Our seasoned sales staff also have a keen eye for items that may have accidentally been left of your commercial kitchen shopping list. The experience and product-knowledge of Brandon Industries is much more valuable than the savings of a few dollars on a set of stainless steel spoons. All of what you need under one roof.

    Purchase and installation of sanitation, fire and safety equipment

    Apart for the general necessities of a kitchen in regards to preparing food is the occupational health and safety side of things. Proper signage and design elements in your kitchen need, by law, to be properly implemented. Of course, being an old-hand in the commercial kitchen design business, we have had experience with this type of thing and are able to quickly spot deficiencies that aren’t quite up to proper regulation. Also, we have the products you need: from exit signs to custom made ventilation. Oh, and sinks, we also custom make sinks of all shapes and sizes.

    For many hospitality enterprises, the kitchen is the heart of the business. If it is a great kitchen, offering good food safely and efficiently, then the business, be it a café, hotel, or restaurant, will flourish. A poorly maintained and failing kitchen can bring the entire enterprise down with it. Good service and a pleasant dining room experience will not make up for bad quality food, and kitchen inefficiencies can lead to excessive wait times that ruin even the best dining room ambience. Being the heart of the business, a great deal of success, or indeed failure, comes down to the design of the kitchen, and commercial kitchen design can be a complicated affair.

    Many factors have to be balanced to produce a satisfactory and optimal design. This includes answering questions such as: Has the correct equipment been installed at the right location to ensure a smooth and efficient kitchen flow? Have potential “traffic jam” spots been identified and rectified in advance? Does the whole operation comply with Health and Safety legislation and will it satisfy the Environmental Health Officer? If it is a restaurant kitchen open to the view of the clientele, does it appeal to the eye? Above all, has the kitchen been achieved at a cost that has not upset the financial stability of the business? Have financial options such as Silver Chef been taken into consideration?

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    It is no surprise that many businesses faced with the task of creating a new commercial kitchen space turn to the services of a commercial kitchen consultant and designer. These specialist companies have both the experience avoid problems in advance as well as an up to date knowledge of current kitchen equipment technology and functionality. This means the design will include an optimised and efficient layout that has the right equipment for the flow and load of the hospitality industry.

    Take, for example, the fundamental design of commercial kitchen and the construction of the plan. The do-it-yourself unskilled designer will seemingly have to use a ruler and graph paper and do his or her scale conversions with the aid of a calculator and pencil. With care, an accurate ground plan can be achieved, but a two-dimensional representation can only offer so much information.

    Hiring a team of commercial kitchen consultant designers is the most constructive option. They will have access to the specialised software and will be able to construct a 3D CAD kitchen plan, with all the chosen equipment installed, that the customer can thoroughly inspect. This experience can be invaluable for spotting any areas that will inevitably be changed. It is much better to spot this during the design stage than be faced with them after the install.

    Custom commercial kitchen fitouts

    Professionals are aware that the dual imperatives of functionality and compliance are constantly at work in any kitchen design, sometimes pulling in opposite directions. It may be convenient to have the washing facilities in one place, for instance, yet lawful to have them in another. Food storage and preparation areas have to be kept separate but must also have easy access from one to the other. The owner of the business must be concerned with ventilation, lighting, the provision of first aid equipment, and dozens of other things before he or she lets the chefs go into action. Here the expertise of the kitchen design professional will be of great use, as they will be able to advise the kitchen owner on the regulations and plans accordingly, achieving the best balance between the two contrasting needs.

    The Brandon design team will also be able to advise a kitchen owner on the matter of equipment purchase. As has been mentioned, this includes knowing about the different technology solutions within the hospitality industry, but also includes understanding financial options that can greatly reduce the start-up cost.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Designing a custom commercial kitchen is great for any restaurant owner. Not only can you design a commercial kitchen setup that fits your business perfectly, you can also ensure that the design is to your taste and suits the overall look of the space. If your kitchen is part of the visual field of the customer, i.e., a customer can watch their food being prepared, you really must make sure that the design of the kitchen fits with your brand. You don’t want diners feeling distracted by the kitchen. Rather, it should add to the atmosphere. With a custom commercial kitchen, you can choose the layout, the equipment, and the style.

    Your commercial kitchen setup is in some ways similar to a scaled-up domestic kitchen. However, the difference in scales brings new troubles and new solutions. You have to think about key issues like through-traffic, distance between equipment, and convenient storage areas. Furthermore, unlike a domestic kitchen, you may need specific commercial tools and equipment, depending on what your business is. For instance, a fast food restaurant or ramen house will have entirely different needs to a large commercial kitchen in a hotel. A custom commercial kitchen design will allow you to plan the space better and make good use of any area, even if it’s smaller than you would like (which is often the case, especially starting out). A custom design will work with any existing fittings like gas or water and make everything else flow smoothly.

    Custom commercial kitchen fitouts

    An important aspect to a commercial kitchen setup is ventilation. In small spaces it’s especially important to make sure that the ventilation works well enough to rid the kitchen of air pollutants, dangerous steam, and to make the environment more pleasant and safe for the kitchen staff. You also want work into the design surfaces and storage areas that are easy to clean and maintain. Stainless steel design works great for this purpose and has a nice modern look to it.

Appropriate use of kitchen space will allow chefs to have easy access to everything in your commercial kitchen. The following information will help you optimally design and plan you kitchen, and our expert commercial kitchen team can help you with anything not found below.

    The Size of the Space

    Calculating the exact amount of space to work with in your commercial kitchen is the first step in designing the most optimised plan. Make use of the tape measure to know the actual size of your kitchen length, width, and height. Use these measurements to come up with a planned scaled plan in the kitchen area. Also consider filling in extra details that may be unique to your kitchen, this includes any brand-specific layout requirements, strange features in the building, or anything else that might be necessary to know when creating a detailed layout plan.

    Required Equipment

    Make a full list of all essential equipment that you will need in the kitchen. This list will be helpful as a starting point, and can be updated and streamlined by one of our professionals.

Our 3D drawings can allow you to visualise how the kitchen will fit together and can be easily tweaked. With accurate measurements, this is the best way to proceed with the layout planning. Sufficient space will be planned out to allow your chefs to have proper workflow, and our custom made items will greatly improve the ease and end result of the design.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    When you start a food business, the prime requirement is to establish a fully-equipped and fully-functional kitchen. Well, what does this mean? Does it simply mean that you should fill the kitchen with the most expensive and impressive sounding equipment? Of course not. A commercial kitchen is not simply a repository for equipment and the design has to include a factoring of certain particulars. This includes understanding the workflow, the maximum and average turnover, the refrigeration requirements, as well as things such as power and water consumption. A custom made piece of equipment can be perfectly suited to the fitout and outperform the top-of-the-line alternative in terms of optimisation and efficiency.

    Cooking Stations

    A cooking station refers to the specific cooking area dedicated to an area of food preparation. Each station offers the equipment and layout required for carrying out the appropriate food preparation. The design and synthesis of the cooking stations depend on the purpose of the kitchen. For example, if your kitchen fitout is a training centre, then allowances will have to be made for the movement of budding chefs only beginning to get familiar with the workflow of a commercial kitchen, there will also need to be extra space for trainers/teachers to evaluate and guide performance. A kitchen purposely suited for baking will be set up differently than a pizza shop or any other specialised kitchen. This is an important factor in the design of the commercial kitchen.

    Choosing the Right Equipment

    Commercial kitchen equipment should be capable of handling large-scale customer requirements. Always buy sturdy commercial equipment that is suitable for mass production of food. High-level safety standards are required, and longevity and durability should be selected for. It is sensible to purchase from reliable and well-known commercial kitchen equipment manufacturers, however a commercial kitchen consultant may be able to recommend lesser known, cheaper, but equal-quality alternatives. Since these products are still commercial-grade equipment, they will necessarily include all the mandatory features such as: safety shields, finger guards, dehumidifiers, and so on.

    Custom commercial kitchen fitouts

    Layout and Design of the Kitchen

    The layout and design of a commercial kitchen are extremely important in regards to workflow, optimisation, and efficiency. There are stringent safety and quality guidelines about size, dimension, temperature, and airflow. There should be enough space for movement, and everything should be well-organized.

    Ergonomics: You should make sure that the design is convenient for the workers. They shouldn’t be expected to have to continually overexert themselves due to a poorly designed kitchen. Not only does a proper design reduce fatigue but it also brings efficiency and better service to the customers.

    Energy efficiency: You must ask for a design that is the most energy efficient. Aside from the environmental considerations, this will help to keep down the cost of your bills. Keeping the kitchen illuminated with natural light, and placing all the cookers at a centralized place are some examples of energy saving. Use of solar water heaters keeps the operational costs to minimum levels. Things such as ceiling height and room volume also contribute to the energy efficiency of the kitchen.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Whether you are renovating an existing restaurant kitchen or planning to open a new restaurant altogether, it’s likely that you are thinking of buying new commercial kitchen equipment. During this process there can be several questions in your mind which are best addressed to a professional custom commercial kitchen consultant. Before finalising a deal, it’s important to know precise details about your new kitchen and the current technology on offer in the world of commercial kitchens. Some of these questions and their possible answers are given below to help you find some clarity with the design process.

    What materials are used in the commercial kitchen?

    Normally, highly durable stainless steel is used in making commercial kitchens so that the equipment can be used safely for preparing food without being affected by high temperatures. Most of the components of commercial grade kitchens, from dishwashing sinks to the hood of the stove, table tops and splash backs, are made of stainless steel. The cutting boards on the prep tables in these kitchens are colour coded polyethylene to allow its users to hygienically prepare various types of foods simultaneously. The stainless steel used in these kitchens help in increasing its productivity along with keeping the food safe.

    Who should I meet to ask for advice when buying a new commercial kitchen?

    When buying a commercial kitchen you should seek advice from a custom commercial kitchen consultant along with your chef and kitchen staff. The kitchen consultant will have insight into important construction details, including the needs and roles of tradies, such as plumbers and electricians, which are vital when building a new or refurbished commercial kitchen. A consultant will also be able to have a dialogue with the chef of your restaurant since they both share a knowledge that encompasses kitchen usage and workflow.

    Custom commercial kitchen fitouts

    What ergonomic and functional needs should I consider?

    The design of a commercial kitchen can be said ergonomic when it has been customised according to the space available and enables its users to cook food at a fast and comfortable speed. This means that the kitchen design should take workflow and the specific spatial layout into consideration. When buying a commercial kitchen, you should consider the particular type of cooking and preparation that will be undertaken, as well as the availability of the space.

    How can I maximise the energy efficiency of a commercial kitchen?

    While discussing the designs of different types of commercial kitchens with the custom commercial kitchen consultants you can also ask about the ways to increase energy efficiency. An experienced consultant, as well as designer of commercial grade kitchen equipment, can be very helpful to guide you with such a query. This will also help you in making a wise decision when buying a piece of expensive but energy efficient commercial kitchen equipment.

    What size commercial kitchen will be suitable for my restaurant?

    The size of a commercial kitchen depends on various factors including the maximum number of customers that can be served and the different kinds of meals on offer. The kitchen of your restaurant should be proportionate to its seating capacity, factoring in the average space needed by your chefs in order to prepare and cook the meals. A professional consultant will be able to give more nuanced details pertinent to your specific fitout, as this kind of information is very much derived from the locational context and your own personal vision.

    Custom commercial kitchen design

    Custom commercial kitchen installation is best executed with one professional installer/vendor rather than buying equipment from multiple vendors. This will likely save you money since discounts may be offered, especially when buying numerous products together. It is also particularly beneficial when that one installer/vendor has a range of custom stainless steel equipment on offer.

    Commercial Refrigeration

    For restaurants and other hospitality fitouts, selecting the appropriate commercial refrigeration is vital. This is because it will increase the lifespan of your ingredients by keeping them at safe temperatures, as well as the unit itself having a proper lifespan and durable construction. Brandon Industries knows how to handle your specific needs when it comes to kitchen installation. They know the different equipment needed to meet your kitchen demands. The refrigerators are adjusted at different temperatures based on the types of food stored. This is to meet health and safety specifications. The refrigeration system regular servicing and maintenance to continue working efficiently. This includes:

    cleaning the condenser weekly,

    cleaning the fridge with mild detergents,

    emptying the icemaker,

    and maintaining the right temperature in case of any interference.

    Custom commercial kitchen fitouts

    Steps for Custom Commercial Kitchen Installation

    When it comes to restaurants, cafes, and other eateries, the kitchen has to be safe and highly efficient to optimise food production and enable the creation of the highest quality delicacies. An effective kitchen fitout comes from a well-planned commercial kitchen design. Such a design will be able to save you both money and time.

    1. List your menu. As the director of your restaurant, have a list of the foods you plan to offer your customers. Later, have planned how you will prepare and store this food. Remember that “a goal without a plan is just a wish”.

    2. Ensure you have an efficient list of the equipment that you will require. This will be based on your menu list that you made above. The equipment list may include items such as: pizza ovens, mixers, chicken rotisseries, commercial dish washers, bakery items, countertop induction range, vacuum cleaners, and filter systems.

    3. Pick your commercial kitchen site. Whether you are constructing a new site or refurnishing an old site, you have to contact the local zoning commissioner to check and countercheck your restaurant. You should take note of the measurements of your site. This can be the windows, doors and your working area. After having that at hand, a simple sketch of your plan can help to explain your vision to professional kitchen designers. Take note of the new special features you might need to add to your plan.

    4. Get in touch with a building inspector to go through your plans. They will go through your plan to see whether it meets health codes and fire precaution rules. This includes things such as: site ventilation, fire precaution equipment, first aid supplies, and so on.

    5. Remember to insure your restaurant. Even after meticulous planning and designs, the future may hold unforeseen misfortunes. After all, as Robert Burns wrote, “the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”.
