Chef in a Kitchen

Hospitality Design

 

Cafes | Bars | Restaurants | Hotels | Health Care 

Our design consultants interpret the brief with an in-depth technical expertise, supporting and informing the client and external design team.

We're designers of commercial kitchens & bars that suit the requirements of your hospitality venue or commercial production kitchen, the available space and your budget, at the same time ensuring that Australian Standards and food hygiene requirements are met. 

Base Build Design Appraisal

 

Design | Consult

How do we design your hospitality venue or commercial kitchen?

We carry out a preliminary assessment of building premises to ensure their suitability to accommodate a Client or operators food and beverage requirements. Early consultation can result in fit out savings and reduced capital expenditure.

We also take this opportunity to fully understand your projects desired outcomes.

 

Preliminary - Schematic Design

Cafes | Bars | Restaurants | Hotels | Health Care

We develop a layout design to meet your brief, from there we'll fully review & seek your approval before taking it to the next stage of design development.

We find that this level of documentation is perfect for Council Health Department Applications and confirming kitchen and bar envelope parameters. Along with the design layout we'll supply schedule of key equipment. This will be completed in 2D CAD and usually 1:50 @ A3

Design Development

 

3D Drawings |  Augmented Reality  |  3D Movie

We deliver projects using BIM modeling providing both traditional drawings and AR walk-through for spatial allocation and 3D kitchen & bar design movies.

We are at the forefront of sustainable kitchen design and take very seriously our responsibility to deliver environmentally efficient designs. A well designed and specified kitchen can deliver up to a 30% reduction in utility usage per annum, and our designers work with our clients and MEP engineers to consider lifecycle cost benefits to optimise capital expenditure. 

We incorporate extraction canopy & services markups for consultant engineers to incorporate into their documents or contractors based on the project size.

A well designed bar can increase revenue earning potential through effective ergonomic design. We work closely with interior designers to ensure that bars not only look stunning but operate effectively to maximise profit.

Tender Documentation

 

Design Specification

We provide a fully comprehensive kitchen design service, from the base build design appraisal to the preliminary schematic concept layouts through to detailed design development. Liaising with the other design team consultants, we deliver a fully coordinated catering equipment tender package.

We document the scope of works to be carried out as a separate package to the building contract with demarcation between consultants, architects, procurement, clients, subcontractors and base builders works.

 

We include the specification of works & construction standards of custom made stainless steel & joinery as well as the equipment specification, providing a full description of equipment detailed with make, model & service requirements. 

 

The quality of an installation is largely down to the quality of the technical design and production information at tender stage. TK Consulting's documentation has a reputation amongst contractors for being accurate and detailed removing the requirement for commercial risk pricing. Our attention to detail ensures that the client gets what they want.

Project Management

 

The construction fit out of a project can be a time consuming & costly process. Ensuring a design is correctly interpreted and installed is a key part of achieving a quality end product. We work with main contractors attending site coordination meetings and oversee the procurement & installation of FF&E to ensure a smooth installation. This includes contractor review meetings, site inspections and attendance, approval of manufacturing drawings, off site manufacturing visits and equipment commissioning through to defects inspections on completion and finally handover.
