Popular beach restaurant pleased with the impact new Precision refrigeration is having
The Hut is a popular restaurant situated in Colwell Bay, on the northwest coast of the Isle of Wight. Since opening five years ago it has established a reputation for the quality of its menu. “Our philosophy has always been to use local produce as much as possible,” owner George Adams explains. “The quality of the seafood we use is very important, so we need to be able to keep it in perfect condition until it’s ready to be used.”
The Hut recently completed a major refurbishment to improve both the dining area and provide an upgrade to the kitchen. George brought in catering design firm Little Duffy to oversee the project, and he was quite clear about the standard he expected. “It was quite a simple brief, really. We wanted the best of everything!
The Chestnut Group aims to ‘bring a bit of Soho House to Bury’

Configurator creates Revit files of non-standard models

However, Precision’s highly flexible product line can be configured to meet customers’ specific requirements – and the company wanted its Revit BIM files to be able to reflect this. “There are over 12,000 different standard configurations in our product range,” says Nick Williams, managing director of Precision. “Most consultants, designers and operators planning their kitchen use a variant rather than a standard product. We wanted them to be able use a BIM file of the specific variation they need – so we created a tool that allows them to do exactly that.” (more…)
