As a company with 30 years experience in food technology room design, Klick Technology can help in applying the advice provided in the government guidelines regarding the requirements for teaching food technology in schools. We can tackle any technical issues and ensure your specific requirements are addressed.
Our expertise in planning rooms means we can incorporate the relevant DfE recommendations and at the same time make the most of your available space. Current guidelines for food rooms are encompassed in "Building Bulletin 81" in combination with "Food Technology Spaces in Secondary Schools - A Design Guide".
Food Technology facilities need to allow students the flexibility to analyse, prepare and cook food as well as study theoretical topics such as diet, nutrition and the role of the food industry. Our experienced design team can advise on layouts to accommodate both these practical and theory based lessons. We offer a free service providing 3D CAD layouts for all quotations which aids visualisation of the room before making a final decision.
Students benefit from a well ordered environment, designed with their learning needs in mind. Materials such as Corian, Velstone, Trespa and Stainless Steel provide an excellent surface in food technology rooms where maintenance of hygiene and ease of cleaning are a major consideration.
There are health and safety issues to consider when planning a room, such as safe working distances around cookers and sinks. Pupils will be more easily distracted and disturb each other when conditions are cramped and rooms have not been thoughtfully planned.
Pupils with special needs must be taken into account when planning a Food Technology room. We can provide specialist adjustable height hobs, sinks and tables - ideally one of each should be provided in rooms which are to be used by students with disabilities.
We offer a wide range of storage options to accommodate the utensils and equipment required for practical lessons. Space will be required for the storage of ingredients brought in by pupils and you will also need areas to keep coats and bags away from the practical area.
We can build you a new room from scratch or convert any kind of existing room or rooms into a Food Technology room. We can carry out a feasibility study to assess the most cost effective room to convert, bearing in mind the availability of existing services and structural considerations.
We offer standard food technology rooms or stainless steel commercial catering facilities. We can also advise on air conditioning and heat extraction requirements. Whatever your needs we can help you deliver the ideal facility for your school.
