About us

Established in 2002, A&E Catering Design are an independent, fee based consultancy who take professionalism very seriously. To remain at the cutting edge of industry knowledge, legislation and trends, we operate our own comprehensive Continual Development Programme. We believe in operating our business ethically and to a high standard.

We do not assign junior or inexperienced consultants to lead roles on our projects.  Few aspects of assignments are routine, especially those in heritage buildings. Continuity of a senior consultant’s full involvement is, in our opinion, essential.  Our consultants are imaginative, innovative and experienced in working as part of a collaborative design and project team.
