GEC Anderson selected to cater for sustainable Lambeth Community Project

GEC Anderson selected to cater for sustainable Lambeth Community Project

A highly sustainable Education & Visitor Centre is nearing completion alongside a historic landmark in a south London park, with the fit out including the installation of stainless-steel sinks, work-surfaces and shelving units, supplied and installed by sector specialist, GEC Anderson.

The engineered timber structure has been built for the London Borough of Lambeth and The Friends of Brixton Windmill, a registered charity, beneath what is the last functioning windmill in the capital. Now fully refurbished, the brake on the sails is due to be released this summer. The construction of the multi-functional education centre, which is designed to accommodate schools’ workshops as well as being available for community events, has been carried out by Erith based Logan Construction (SE) Ltd, while Squire and Partners is the local architectural practice leading the design work.

With the centre able to seat around 120 people for functions, it required a substantial kitchen area, with the GEC Anderson units arranged along parts of all four walls, providing space for storage, food preparation and portering. Standards of hygiene and the need for low maintenance were primary considerations in GEC being awarded the contract to manufacture and install all of the sections, complete with integral sinks, splashbacks and spaces sized to take appliances like a dishwasher. There are also three adjustable wall shelving units.

The project architect for Squires and Partners, Albert Suen, commented: “Our designs for the Brixton Windmill Education & Visitor Centre included performance specifications for all of the kitchen fittings, for which stainless steel was the obvious choice for the counter tops etc. Logan Construction worked with GEC Anderson to obtain an appropriate commercial kitchen. It is well made and definitely meets the purposes we were targeting.”

Since its formation in 1962, GEC Anderson has built its reputation for the supply of top end stainless steel sinks and sanitaryware on a combination of innovative design, top quality materials and expert craftsmanship. In addition to the company’s Decimetric system of cabinets, sinks, drainers and other equipment - widely specified for sectors including health and catering - the company’s custom engineered solutions have been selected for some of the country’s top sports, entertainment and leisure destinations.
