How Calling a Contractor Changed My Life

This might sound completely crazy, but the most important call I ever may was to a construction contractor. I can remember the day as if it were yesterday. I had decided to rebuild parts of my home. This involved removing part of the roof, knocking down a brick wall and removing some electrical wires and water pipes. I started out just fine but then I started to have problems. I realised I was in out of my depth and decided to call an expert. The contractor who came around was great and he quickly fixed up the mess I had made. Since that day, I have had a keen interested in construction contractors. I hope you like this blog.

Two tips to enhance your new commercial kitchen

If you have just bought a commercial building and need to have a kitchen built on these premises in order to prepare food for your customers, here are some tips that you might find helpful.

Make the freezer room as safe as possible

Most large commercial kitchens feature freezer rooms, as these are spacious enough to enable kitchen staff to easily store, organise and access large quantities of frozen ingredients and pre-prepared frozen meals. If your contractor provides freezer room construction services, it is important to ensure that they make this room as safe as possible. For example, the flooring material that the contractor uses for it should be textured, so as to reduce the risk of kitchen staff slipping when they are walking around inside of it. This is important, as the floors of freezer rooms can often end up covered in a thin film of ice that makes them very slippery.

Additionally, the freezer room should be well-lit, with easy-to-access light switches by both the door and the shelving units. Since freezer rooms don't feature windows, they are very dark when the door is closed. As such, if there is a lack of adequate lighting in the room, the kitchen staff who use it are more likely to bump into shelves or trip over items and injure themselves.

Finally, you should make sure that your contractor who constructs the freezer room fits a door that can be unlocked from the inside; this will minimise the risk of anyone getting locked inside the room and developing hypothermia if their co-workers accidentally lock the door from the outside.

Don't opt for excessively-large worktops that will take up too much floor space

Spacious worktops are very useful in busy commercial kitchens, where large amounts of food need to be prepped. However, when your contractor asks you to choose the size of your new worktops, you should make sure that you do not select ones that are excessively-large and will take up a lot of the kitchen's floor space. In a busy commercial space of this kind, there will be staff members walking around the kitchen all day long. Some of these people may be carrying plates or containers of hot foods and liquids, as well as sharp kitchen knives, whilst they walk from one part of the kitchen to another.

Thus, it is important to make sure that the people working in the kitchen have enough floor space to comfortably move around, without bumping into each other. If the worktops you pick are so large that people have no other option but to squeeze past one another whilst holding the aforementioned hot foods and sharp utensils, there is a much greater chance that these items will be spilt or dropped and that someone will sustain an injury as a result of this.
