DO & CO Luxury Catering Facility completed at London Heathrow Airport

The DO & CO Luxury Catering Facility at Heathrow Airport has been completed and has begun the first phase of operations.

The operationally complex and fast-paced project involved the high-end fit-out of a showcase food production facility providing catering to passengers in the aviation sector, as well as retail customers.

Vienna-based DO & CO provides gourmet catering for airlines and international events as well as operating its own restaurants, bars, lounges, and hotels. It is a world leader in gourmet entertainment and catering.

Chapman Taylor was appointed at the beginning of 2019 to work from planning to construction stage on the fit-out out of the newly built 25,000m² production and distribution facility.

The facility provides two main levels of commercial kitchens, storage and process areas as well as extensive office, meeting and presentation areas and a culinary theatre for demonstrations and lectures. An internal “restricted zone” with scanning for goods and people allows products to go straight to the airfield.

The project had a fast-track design and construction programme, with overlapping design stages for efficiency.

UK Transportation Director Peter Farmer comments: "It has been a great experience working so closely with DO & CO and McLaughlin and Harvey to deliver this outstanding project. We wish DO & CO many years of successful operations at this innovative new facility."
