Installation & Handover
CHR provided a huge amount assistance and coordination in ensuring that all other trades on site were well briefed as to what their requirements were ahead of our arrival on site to install.
Structural and electrical loads were provided along with detailed service drawings enabling the wider project team to deliver their individual elements.
This upfront work allowed for a straightforward installation of the kitchen elements. CHR would like to extend their thanks to the wider project team in working so closely with them.
A comprehensive training and handover programme allowed the newly assembled teams across the Picturedrome site to get to grips with the installed equipment very quickly. And ensured Picturedrome was ready to open and operate as per Nick’s plans and on a very short bedding in schedule.
On time – on budget
“…. the acid test of any relationship is would I use CHR again – and the answer to that is “Yes”
The service CHR provided at quote stage was concise, professional and comprehensive.
At the build stage CHR worked really well and in partnership with our guys on site.
On completion, the handover was comprehensive.
CHR have forged personal and good relationships with all of the kitchens and they with you.
So – all told, thank you CHR for your role in making Picturedrome what it now is!”

“CHR were brilliant from the start.
This is our 4th kitchen build and for us it’s by far the best due to it’s efficiency and design. It’s a great kitchen and because of it’s structure, we believe we’ll save a considerable amount in staff costs and utility bills.
Thanks to Peter and everyone at CHR for such a great experience from start to finish. I certainly couldn’t recommend them enough and when we need kitchen 5 building they’ll be the first company we call.”
Matt Walsh, Owner, Tender Cow, November 2019
“Just wanted to send a quick email about how pleased I am with my kitchen and how smoothly everything went.
You have literally built my dreams, as daft as it sounds, but I have been waiting to set up my first kitchen for years now and this was my first chance.
I couldn’t be happier with the finished product and service I received from you.
I hope to see you soon.
Jamie Savage, Owner, Savages Mussels, December 2019
“Just wanted to drop you an email now that we’ve been up and running a few weeks to say thank you to everyone at CHR.
It’s a tight little space we have here at Picturedrome but having listened to what I needed and how I wanted the space to work you’ve delivered a kitchen that has enabled me to serve the dishes I want even at the busiest times.
I was chuffed that CHR were able to take a lead on all the kitchens at Picturedrome as it meant we were all working toward the same goal and timescale.
Jonny Mulyk, Owner, Terroni Pastificio, December 2019
“The extent of my kitchen experience had come from a 3x3m gazebo in a muddy field at some of Britain’s finest festivals, so when we were invited to trade at Macclesfields 400 cover new Picturedrome alongside some of Manchester’s most established traders, I was obviously going to need some help!
Thankfully Pete & the team from CHR could not have made the process any easier. Pete was always available to meet at a mutually convenient time & place to discuss, with great patience, how he could design & install a kitchen that best fit our needs. He even arranged an outdoor demonstration of our new Synergy grill on a sunny afternoon in Altrincham – 15 miles from where our kitchen was being built!
During the installation process a number of snags were identified with solutions & alternate plans devised before it ever became a risk, & as we grew into the space & recognised we required extra storage & lay-off space, Pete & his team executed all modifications within a realistic time frame,
Great aftercare with training & handover, always available to discuss future projects, will definitely be working with Pete & the CHR team again.”
Our work at Picturedrome has been shortlisted for the 2020 CEDA Grand Prix Awards.
