Site Canteens have become a regular feature at all large construction projects, many of these construction site canteens were supplied by CKF Hire. In addition, to Stand Alone Production Kitchens we have installed Multi Unit Complexes on larger projects which included Dining Units, Dry Goods Stores, Walk in Cold Rooms, Staff Changing Rooms, Toilets and more.

From small to large projects it pays to keep staff on site and well fed. We have the solution for your requirements from a single mobile catering unit to something bigger, we can meet with you, access your requirements and recommend a solution. Our transport crew deliver with the minimum of fuss and our fully compliant units can be working quickly in less than 1 day for smaller projects. We can organise Electricians, Plumbers, Gas Fitters, Carpenters in fact all that is required to site and commission our units.

When sited we can provide all certification required and our engineers will commission, sign off and offer your caterers a demonstration to familiarise them with our equipment.


We have wide experience in dealing with Catering Companies and understand their requirements, know what is and what is not required for any given contract and if necessary we can recommend a Catering Company where none are in place. With construction work actually likely to rap up in 2014 and 2015, advance planning and early booking of units is advised.
