Having provided products for Alan Yao’s restaurants for more than a decade, stainless steel specialists Component Developments were specified to supply stainless steel drainage channels and gullies throughout both the ground floor and basement kitchen areas of the Park Chinois.
The Park Chinois is an ambitious restaurant located on Berkeley Street, London W1. Alan Yao, who originally opened the Wagamama chain in 1992 and has since added Hakkasan, Busaba Ethai, Yauatcha and Sake No Hana to his list of stylish restaurants, launched the new 15,200 sq. ft. Park Chinois, which seats 300 people.
On the ground floor kitchen area a total of 20 stainless steel channel drains and gullies were fitted, each with Anti-slip gratings. The channel widths ranged in size from 395mm to 995mm, with lengths up to 5.75 metres.
On the basement floor a further 2 channel drains and 15 large gully pots where fitted. All gully bodies installed were standard designs, supplied by Component Developments to various projects throughout London on a regular basis. All included removable stainless steel odour traps and baskets placed inside which allow for easy access.
Working closely for over a year with the kitchen design team and on-site contractors, Component Developments were able to make sure the plumbing and floor tiles tied together nicely, both practically and visually, sticking tightly to the original kitchen design.
