Scrapping BSF schemes places many schools in quandary

08 July 2010

The news that 719 planned Building Schools for the Future (BSF) schemes are to be scrapped puts many schools in something of a quandary when it comes to maintaining catering standards, says PKL, the UK’s leading supplier of temporary kitchens and catering equipment for hire.

“Many of these projects would have included essential upgrades to kitchens, so schools will now have to look for alternatives,” notes PKL’s Lee Vines. “And with other capital budgets also being squeezed there is a very strong case for considering capital-free alternatives such as long-term hire of equipment or entire kitchens. Using the contract hire option to procure new kitchen buildings or to replace or upgrade a current kitchen estate provides a viable alternative to capital purchase,” he adds.

PKL offers a wide choice of hire options, ranging from the ability to specify a complete kitchen equipment estate with inclusive service and maintenance, to permanent modular kitchen buildings that can be designed and configured to end user choice. The company will also work with schools to evaluate their needs, identify the best solution and explore the options that are open to them.
