Skibo Castle, Carnegie Club

Our kitchen solution meets exacting standards of prestigious club

Altro Whiterock Digiclad, Altro Stronghold 30, Altro Whiterock

Scotland, UK - In a secluded corner of the Northern Highlands lies Skibo Castle, home to the Carnegie Club, an exclusive members club offering the best of Scottish hospitality and grandeur.

The chefs at Skibo are passionate about food and it shows through on the plate. Executive Chef Craig Rowland, recently invested as a Fellow of the prestigious Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, oversees a team of talented professionals committed to offering members worldclass cuisine.

The catering facilities at the club recently underwent a complete redesign and upgrade to the serve golf club house, doubling the size of the facility. The kitchen is used for catering as well as hosting cooking classes for members, so it needed to integrate into the interior design of the club house. The design was to create a theatre-style kitchen with clean lines and an easy-to-maintain, hygienic finish. The showpiece was an 1760lbs pizza oven from Italy.

Gratte Brothers designed and installed the new kitchen with Gavin McDonald Flooring. As part of the design, Gratte Brothers selected a range of Altro floors and walls to meet the exacting standards of the brief. Altro’s products are Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approved meet all current European Union (EU) directives on health and hygiene, making them particularly suitable for use in commercial kitchens.

Executive Chef Craig Rowland said: “We have used Altro floors at the club before and realized their many benefits. We liked the color options and that it is a cost-effective, safety floor that is easy to clean and maintain. The result is excellent.”

Altro Stronghold 30 safety flooring achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance (PTV ≥55, R12) and is designed to minimize risk in areas exposed to grease, oils and fats for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue, thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise reduction and comfort underfoot.

Craig continued: “We liked the option to get a printed picture on the wall, and that’s why we chose Altro Whiterock Digiclad for the front of house servery area to create impact.”

Altro Stronghold 30 was combined with a range of Altro Whiterock hygienic walls, including Altro Whiterock, Altro Whiterock and Altro Whiterock Digiclad throughout the kitchen and front-of-house servery area. Altro Whiterock Digiclad is created by reproducing a photographic image or vector art onto Altro Whiterock wall cladding, with consistent, photographic quality, allowing a custom design. Altro Whiterock is available in a range of 20 solid, satin-finish shades and can be used where aesthetics and durability are important.
