Home from Home

Allsop and Pitts helped the Charity create a luxurious Home from Home for ill children and their families by breaking new ground.

The kitchen had to look like that of a smart private house but be able to function as a commercial kitchen.

The solution was to provide Commercial Range, Convection Oven and Dishwasher.  Alongside refrigeration and serving equipment integrated into High-end domestic cupboards and drawers. In addition to bespoke Corian Solid Surface worktops with inset sinks and custom draining boards.

Efficient Running Costs

A joint venture with Electrolux Laundry equipment also enabled Allsop and Pitts to install high capacity commercial laundry equipment.  With fantastic reductions of 30% in utility costs and 40% on water costs.

  • Two washer extractors with capacities of 105 and 180 litres
  • One 528 litre Tumble Dryer
  • 1000mm wide Bed Type Ironer.

Allsop and Pitts are very proud to have been involved in a project that will provide medical attention, high levels of care and respite for those who are unfortunate enough to need it in Cornwall.

Little Harbour is the third hospice for the charity Children’s Hospice Southwest and their first in Cornwall.
