In November 2020, Speedspace was contracted by Montego Pet Nutrition to design, supply and construct a new staff canteen facility measuring approximately 590sqm at their head office and factory in Graaff-Reinet in the heart of the Karoo.
The new facility was designed and constructed using a steel portal frame structure made up of 9 x 40′ insulated shipping containers. This created the outer perimeter facilities which comprised of a spacious seating area, gaming and deck area, full kitchen area, tuck shop and ablution facilities.
The project was a first of its kind for the Speedspace team, taking six months to complete from design to handover, with resources from both our Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth office leveraged to ensure successful completion.
The double-storey canteen includes a fully-functional staff kitchen, plenty of space for tables and chairs, the capability to serve staff outside of the actual building, multiple entrances and an upper loft level that really maximises the use of space in the building.
Montego’s own professional marketing team added their finishing touches from a shopfitting, look and feel perspective to create a friendly and comfortable meeting area that was on brand and of the highest quality. As you can see in the images, our design team used high-level planning and design resources to produce an exceptional double-storey space management solution for Montego’s staff canteen, and the result is an eye-catching, comfortable, functional and inviting canteen for the staff to enjoy.
