Le Manoir Staff Canteen

The Brief

Le Manoir’s existing canteen was very dated and run down, we were asked to come up with a design concept that would be warm and welcoming to the staff. It had to be multi-functional as some of the staff bring their own food in, with an option to have hot and cold food offerings every day.

The management wanted a cold and hot drinks area, so the staff could stay hydrated with cold or sparkling water on tap. A bean-to-cup coffee machine was a must to give the staff options on what coffee they wanted and ease of use. The counter needed to be hard-wearing and have a smooth finish.

Midlands was asked to be involved with the building works on the project, to provide wall cladding, non-slip flooring, electrics, and a canopy over the dishwasher.



The Solution

We redesigned the counter and drinks area to suit the new operation, and to give the staff better facilities.

New coloured hygiene wall cladding and non-slip flooring was installed. This gave the staff a welcoming area to eat at lunchtime and to relax on their breaks.

The finish on the counter was in premium Black Corian with Gloss white panels. The drinks area was finished with a Frankie coffee machine, Instanta water boiler, and a Borg & Overstrom water system.
