AKU Main Kitchen, Karachi
The main kitchen at AKU Hospital was expanded and underwent a major upgrading of MEP services. The hot kitchen was entirely relocated. This was a very challenging project which required retro-fitting of new equipment into existing HVAC & Plumbing system and re-using substantial portions of the installed equipment, ducting and piping. The hot kitchen was entirely re-located and a new ventilation system designed by modifying existing 20ft long kitchen hoods to allow fresh air addition and extraction, while maintaining comfortable conditions in this hot area, which was not air-conditioned. A new grease trapping system was designed to replace the existing system which has causing the drainage system to continuously become clogged by cooking grease.
