4000-capacity kitchen and canteen built by Coninvest

At Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus, we provide environmentally friendly dishwashing solutions with Meiko products

In September 2022, Bosch inaugurated the Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus, Hungary’s newest automotive technology development centre. The new 90,000-square-metre complex will house 1,800 workplaces, 14,000 square metres of research and test laboratories, a uniquely equipped instrumented test track and a high-tech test hall with huge measuring chambers.

Bosch’s new campus and its new canteen, which serves 1,000-1,200 people a day, was one of the biggest Coninvest projects this year.

In the campus’ staff canteen, modern, snow-white, island-style serving counters are a form-fitting design. The restaurant’s innovative sales system and the matching offer were envisioned by Bosch’s project management and operating team, together with German investment colleagues under the coordination of Zita Vas-Takács. Customers dining in the canteen can choose the dishes and quantities best suited to their own eating habits through a self-service, cashless payment system.

In the kitchen, cooking is done exclusively with German and Swiss equipment and technology. Large, mobile combi-steamers, pressure pans suspended on the assembly wall and tilting pans all allow efficient production and easy cleaning. The pastry kitchen is fully independent from the bakery supply thanks to the etage ovens located here. This central kitchen is intended to serve all the restaurants on the Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus.

The kitchen technology plans were prepared by kitchen technologist András Gauland. The construction of the kitchen was carried out in phases over three quarters of a year by Coninvest’s team. The design of the kitchen preparation and production areas was done with a German approach, as described in the cookbook. The quality and finish of the cold tiling, the architraves, the corner guards and bumpers, the transparency thanks to the glass walls between the rooms and the circulation routes are fully in line with the requirements of the future.

In the new complex, special emphasis will be placed on sustainability and energy-efficient operation, which will be achieved through, among other things, excellent thermal insulation, building management solutions adapted to the environmental impact, automated lighting and shading systems, and heat recovery ventilation. Renewable energy sources are also used for campus operations, with only certified green energy purchased, high-efficiency heat pump systems as the primary cooling and heating solution, complemented in the future by solar PV systems. The heat generated by the R&D site test systems will also be reused for heating and hot water.

Sustainability is also a prominent aspect in the operation of the campus cafeteria: the central dishwashing unit is equipped with Meiko machines, which ensure an environmentally friendly dishwashing solution thanks to their minimal water, chemical and energy consumption.

The operation of the largest Meiko dishwashing system in Hungary today is spectacular. The central dishwashing unit, equipped with 3 large Meiko dishwashers, has two conveyor belts running together in a Y-shape. The system is semi-automatic: plates, food scraps and cups are picked up manually, but the tray goes on and a magnetic cutlery pick-up collects and transfers the metal utensils to the dishwasher. The same combined machine tilts the trays up and washes and dries them perfectly until they are again collected clean on a tray serving trolley.
