Whether it’s a café in an office building or a full-scale restaurant, a meal is always nearby. When constructing large and complex facilities, the systems required for food service spaces are commonly overlooked. The Commissioning Process offers opportunities to overcome challenges presented in these unique spaces and help us deliver buildings with safe and functional food service facilities.
Many of us give little though to where we will get our next meal, because . a quick meal is always nearby whether it’s a restaurant, café in an office building, lunchroom at a school, restaurant at a hotel, or coffee shop at the airport. Similarly, especially with large and complex building projects, it’s also common for little thought to be given to the systems that serve kitchen areas.Often time food prep areas are a small portion of a large building project. These spaces are often given little special treatment by contractors. Specialty contractors may be used for food prep equipment and specialty ventilation systems. However, the sub-contractors for the overall project are likely responsible for the supporting HVAC, electrical, plumbing, life safety systems and integration of those systems. The commissioning process offers opportunities to help overcome the challenges that food service spaces present. Understanding common issues, attention to detail, and proper teamwork are key to delivering a building with a safe and functional food service space.
