Ceba Solutions Ltd were invited to create a complete new catering facility for Halo’s new headquarters in London. The build consisted of a new Cafe Bar design and associated equipment.


The Halo building is very large and spread over 11 floors. The new Cafe Bar is allocated on the ground floor, made up of various levels and ceiling heights.


Due to the area provided, creating the perfect Cafe Bar design was difficult due to space restrictions. We consulted with the client to ensure the catering facility to be created would enable them to achieve their menu offering. We needed to work closely with the building architects to achieve a modern cafe bar design and functional space within their guidelines. The rear of the cafe needed to be utilised as the cooking area, meaning Ceba needed to provide an air extraction canopy and flexible cooking equipment with preparation and storage areas.


To utilise the limited space, Ceba designed an L-shaped service counter with a central rear bar to support both sides of the facility. The design also included:

  • Hot beverage area
  • Panini Grill & refrigeration
  • Hot holding food display
  • Cashier areas
  • Ambient chilled retail units to display products & condiments
  • Combination oven and induction ranges to support the hot menu offerings
  • Waste recycling and customer tray stations

How it was achieved

Ceba’s project management team oversaw the programme which included regular site visits prior to installation and providing on-site support during installation. We engaged with our service partners to provide shop fit counters to our design, incorporating the following equipment:

  • Lincat – Water Boilers
  • UNOX – Oven
  • Heated Cerans
  • Winterhalter

  • Electrolux Speedy Grill
  • Hand wash basins
  • Insectocutors


  • Worktops – Granite

  • Lights – LED Strips, variable colour and brightness
