Ferny Grove State High School is located in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. The thriving regional catchment has the school at capacity of just under 2,000 students.  
The school's vision for a new canteen that can cater for students and teachers was critical to its successful business plan.
The kitchen and serving areas had to enable high volume cooking and heating of healthy meals as per the Queensland Government guidelines.The menu would potentially change often which required carefully selected equipment and work flows.
The systems and specified cooking equipment needed to be robust and functional yet have a user-friendly interface for kitchen-staff and volunteers.
The entire kitchen and service areas have been enclosed in an air-conditioned room to allow comfortable working conditions and the management of the flow of customers and queues.
Safety was paramount for the design brief because unskilled students and volunteers would be assisting in the canteen.  
Naturally budget was a driving factor for the school, however nothing has been left out of this new and fully functioning commercial kitchen that can now cater for the diversity of daily meals and events while giving opportunities for fund raising in the local community. 
Now there's no excuse for the teachers and students to be tired - we've also included a coffee machine and grinder for fresh coffees prepared by in-house baristas.
