This milestone marks the beginning of an exciting partnership with Advance Group, the UK’s leading designer, supplier, installer, and service provider of Commercial kitchen equipment, together delivering cutting-edge, environmentally friendly kitchen solutions within a broad spectrum of healthcare settings.

Launched with a clear focus on professionalism, ethics, and sustainability, Alfit Commercial Ltd has established itself as a progressive company committed to achieving excellence in commercial construction, refurbishment, and interior fit-out projects. The company’s dedication to these principles is evident in every aspect of their projects, from the materials used to the seamless design and installation process.

Luke Boxall, Divisional Projects Director for Advance Group, commented on the successful project, “We are delighted to report this full kitchen refurbishment for our valued client has been completed to an excellent finish, both on time and to budget. This milestone demonstrates our dedication to excellence and commitment to delivering top-tier solutions for our clients. We are already making significant headway on the next location, further solidifying the success of our partnership with Alfit Commercial Ltd.”

Aled Lewis, Managing Director of Alfit Commercial Ltd, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “The collaboration between Alfit Commercial Ltd and Advance Group is a testament to our shared values of innovation, safety, and sustainability. We believe that by working together, we can make a meaningful impact by increasing efficiency, ensuring safety and promoting environmentally responsible kitchen environments within the healthcare sector. This partnership and project represents a pivotal moment in our journey to sustainability and achieving a carbon zero future.”

Key features within the client brief include:

  1. Antibacterial Wipe-Clean Wall Cladding: Alfit Commercial Ltd has incorporated wall cladding with antibacterial properties to ensure a sterile and easy-to-maintain environment. This feature contributes to the overall cleanliness and safety of the kitchen.
  2. Gas Decommissioning: disconnection and removal of all existing gas pipework and replacement of existing equipment with new electric appliances fully equipped with cutting edge energy saving technology.
  3. Stainless Steel Worksurfaces: To facilitate rigorous sanitisation and reduce the risk of bacterial contamination, all worksurfaces are constructed from stainless steel. This not only ensures durability but also helps maintain the highest hygiene standards.
  4. State-of-the-Art Sinks with Knee-Operated Taps: The installation of sinks with self-closing, knee-operated taps enhances hand hygiene by reducing the need to touch tap handles. This forward-thinking design further safeguards the well-being of both staff and residents.
  5. Streamlined Design for Bacteria Prevention: The meticulous design and installation process prioritise the elimination of catchment areas where bacteria can thrive. This focus on seamless integration contributes to a safer kitchen environment.
  6. Electrical Safety: To minimise potential hazards, all electrical components and wiring have been channelled into the walls, ensuring the kitchen’s safety and compliance with industry standards.

Furthermore, we have taken the initiative to ensure that the completed kitchen meets the stringent environmental health standards set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). By aligning with CQC guidelines, we are not only providing a functional kitchen space but also contributing to the overall well-being and health of the care facility’s residents.

Alfit Commercial Ltd and Advance Group are proud to embark on this journey together, striving to make healthcare settings more efficient, safer, more sustainable, and environmentally responsible.
