A challenge made a year ago, pushed Sydney-based shipping container company, Containers First towards a creatively noble path. The company recently displayed the complete realisation of its client’s dream mobile kitchen. When Australia’s Benevolent Society approached the company for the creation of an economical, highly-functional mobile kitchen that it can use for its food preparation demonstrations throughout Australia. The charitable institution presented world-class standards never before encountered by the shipping containers company.
Containers First Manager Shayne Johnson reveals, “Our challenge was to design and install everything they wanted within the dimensions of a standard container, whilst making sure it could withstand frequent transport by road and rail and then perform flawlessly at each new destination.”
Even without the aid of drawings or concrete specifications, Containers First took the challenge head on and relied on the creative expertise of its engineers and builders to be able to deliver the requirements that would meet all the objectives of the project. After several months, Containers First presented the finished product, the Taste Mobile Kitchen, to ABS.
“When closed, the 6.5 tonne Taste Mobile Kitchen measures 2.44 wide and 6.05m long. A simple two-button control panel engages the hydraulics and opens the unit: the back section expands the front platform folds down, the top sign goes up, and the depth of the entire unit increases to 6.25m – all in a total of 60 seconds. In addition, a retractable front awning protects participants on stage from the elements,” proudly describes Johnson.
The Taste Mobile Kitchen boasts of a refrigerator unit, 2 taps or faucets, Euromaid stainless steel appliance, including 2 multifunction electric ovens, 2 gas cooktops, an electric cooktop, a ceramic cooktop, 2 microwave ovens and a dishwasher. For kitchen demos, the display mirror over the preparation area provides the audience a top view of all the activity below. All these provisions greatly resemble the kitchens used for a lot of cooking shows, making them fully effective in achieving the goal of ABS in enhancing health and life through good food and proper food preparation of communities all over the country.
According to a representative of ABS, the Taste Mobile Kitchen is available for rent to groups or other organizations when not in use for the institution’s own programs. Rent fees help ABS in increasing its revenue to fund its various activities and operations.
The impressive work that Containers First delivered for ABS is expected to spawn even more innovative ideas for shipping containers, such as technologically advanced portable buildings, micro homes, et cetera, which are deemed more cost-effective compared to the conventional methods of building structures.
