The container wharf extension development at Port of Brisbane prompted the need for a single 12-metre container kitchen to service 200-plus shift workers at any given time.
The kitchen had to facilitate three meals a day at non-stop, staggered intervals. Improbable Project’s design catered for this, as well as included a large cook line with twin-stacked Combi ovens, blast freezer, built-in cool room storage, serving window and separate dish-return window.
Further to the container a full roll-out external service area was designed, which included a bain-marie, cold food displays and beverage station for the self-service of staff meals on the lunch deck.
The design required integration with other containerised and demountable structures, and container-mounted shade shelter.
This unit was also on-sold to further private enterprise following the project’s completion.
300 pax per service
At home in the shipping yard, the design featured integration into a break out deck, surrounding containerised amenities and shade shelter structure.
Project in motion
The kitchen only being required for the 18-month term of the project, it was on-sold following rigorous servicing of equipment & components, proving its flexibility in the industry.
