Serving the seas..
ABOUT THE DESIGN
KSA was approached to design and build the new commercial kitchen for one of Londons premier water based tour operators, City cruises plc, due to expansion of their business and modernisation of its existing facilities. The pontoon will be used to deliver 5 Star quality meals to its fleet of vessels that serve the Thames.
The design was conceived and Project managed throughout its entire development
by KSA. Using their expertise in this field of engineering and dedicated work
force, hopefully delivered and exceeded the clients expectations.
The key features of this project was to deliver a quality pontoon that was self sufficient and could cope with the future work loads forecasted for it..
3d design software and 3D surveying were fundamental tools in developing the
key characterisics required to ensure the new pontoon interfaced with the
existing pile configuration.
The pontoon was built in partnership by KSA & Thames ship repair on their
slipway in Gravesend. The Pontoon took 20 weeks to build from the ground up and finally weighed in at just under 200 tonnes with final ballast.
The pontoon design is split over two spacious floors and has facilities that consist of Walk in Fridges, dry stores, Linen cupboards and even a Staff changing room and a Chefs office.
The Steel and concrete floors are laminated with non slip Hygenic vinyl flooring and the walls and ceilings are completed in high quality stainless and sterile finishes suitable for a commercial kitchen environment.
The Pontoon and Upper building structure are constructed from mild steel sections and fully plated with a variety of thickness hot rolled plate ranging from 6mm thk shell plate and 10mm Hull plate.
