EventCity, Manchester

EventCity is a 28,000m² exhibition and event venue, which opened in 2011. Originally the site of the Manchester tobacco factory there was limited facilities within the venue during the initial opening period, including no kitchen!

In 2012, working with Olympic Games caterer - Smart Hospitality and leading kitchen design company InoxEquip; Devlin Consulting acted on behalf of the venue and the caterer to project manage with InoxEquip the concept, design and installation of a new 752m² kitchen. The kitchen has a dedicated restaurant preparation area, hotplate, and rack conveyor for glass washing, flight machine for crockery & cutlery and secure equipment storage area. At Boxer Amir Khan’s wedding, the kitchen was put through its paces and delivered a banquet for 3500 wedding guests.

"Jayne was excellent to work with throughout the design and build of the kitchen. She fully took on board the key aspects of the project – budget, purpose and functionality. The end result is a kitchen that has been proven to be capable of delivering 3500 covers, is energy efficient and future proofed to meet EventCity's ever increasing variety and demands."
