The only requirement for installation of the Grillo Forge is a flat surface.

The Grillo Forge is free-standing, so no digging is required. Assuming the surface is ready, we can assemble most smaller layouts on site within a couple of days. The Forge’s construction relies on the iroko uprights extending to the ground, so some rougher surfaces (such as York stone) may be unsuitable as a kitchen base. Contact us to discuss your requirement if in doubt. We also advise against installing a layout that includes the Chef’s Anvil on a flammable or heat-sensitive surface.

How we work

Who we work with: We work closely with specifiers right across the industry - garden designers, architects, builders, interior designers - and also deal directly with homeowners. If you are a specifier, it is your choice whether we work with you or liaise directly with your client. See more on what we can offer specifiers here.

Design process: The Grillo Forge is not a one-size-fits-all product - each kitchen is slightly different. We work closely with you from concept to install to ensure the end product will meet expectations. Usually we are given some sort of plan or vision for the project - sometimes it’s as little as a set of dimensions, other times we are commissioned with closely matching a layout which has already been designed. We then prepare a tidy proposal including CAD drawings, visuals, costings and mood boards, ready for you to show your client if you wish. A site visit is usually necessary before the installation phase.

Installation: We do the install. We prepare the majority of the kitchen at our premises in Cambridge, to minimize our time on site. Assuming the surface is ready (a flat patio or similar), most smaller layouts can be assembled on site within a couple of days.
