At Arcus, we pride ourselves on our ability to consistently deliver the very best industrial kitchen equipment to businesses across Western Australia. After more than 66 years of successful operation, we’re still committed to upholding our strong customer service values, which is why we relish the opportunity to supply industrial kitchen equipment to some of Perth’s leading businesses. We recently had the opportunity to work alongside the dedicated professionals at St John of God (SJOG) Hospital on their Midland hospital development.
Our Work with St John of God Hospital
Because of our existing relationships with both SJOG Murdoch and Subiaco, we were asked to consult on the design and fit-out of the new hospital catering facilities for their new venue Midland. When we started work on the project there were basic plans that had already been drawn up. However, over the course of two years, and many group meetings with SJOG and their team of architects and consultants, we refined the design and layout of the main kitchen, dish wash room and plating room. We also designed the caregiver’s café (staff canteen) and the main hospital public café, with both of these undergoing radical changes after we were awarded the fit-out contract, due to a change in working processes at the hospital. In addition, we also brought our suggestions to change the kitchen’s refrigeration operations to fruition, despite our initial plans being rejected.
State-of-the-Art Kitchen Facilities
To ensure the successful completion of the project, we chose to work with one of our main suppliers, Moffat. Working in collaboration with this brand we were able to fit the kitchen out with Convotherm Ovens, Waldorf and Crown Cooking Equipment, Friginox Blast Chillers, and Wexiodisk Pot and Dishwashers, as well as Reiber Plating Belts and the Burlodge Meal Delivery System.
In the café and caregiver’s canteen, we installed Washtech Dishwashers, FPG and Arcus Front of House Displays and Turbofan Ovens, plus state-of-the-art Turbochef Speed Cook Ovens. We were also directly responsible for the supply and installation of all of the hospital’s kitchen refrigeration, and the cooking, food preparation and service equipment in the kitchen, café, and caregiver’s café.
The Project’s Success
Our collaboration with Moffat was a resounding success, as together; we were able to supply an overall food service equipment solution, which can accommodate for up to 1,000 meals per day. Each product that was utilised needed to contribute to the overall goal of efficient food production, with reduced labour costs, and food with a long shelf life, without skimping on quality. Arcus and Moffat delivered on this expectation, proving yet again that the two companies are at the forefront of the industry when it comes to supplying innovative industrial kitchen equipment solutions.
This commercial kitchen project was a fantastic opportunity for the team at Arcus to put their skills to the test. When working on a project as important as a hospital development, coming up with clever solutions and functional designs is a must! We gave the hospital our word that we would deliver on our promises, which was made easy by incorporating reputable brands, such as Moffat. All in all, this commercial kitchen project was a team effort that yielded phenomenal results.
