Steve Brophy

Design Director


With a strong background in kitchen and restaurant design layout and project management, as well as equipment supply Steve brings 14 years’ experience and a familiar understanding of the technical elements which contribute to delivering a successful project.

Having worked alongside the team at ISCC for a number of years, Steve has previously been employed in a similar role by a premier catering design house based in the North West, where he worked on a range of projects with values of between £15k and £1.5m.

Steve’s specific areas of experience and knowledge are fully understanding the project outcome requirement and brief interpretation followed by intelligent, creative, practical and futureproof generation of design plans and presentation of these to key stakeholders, communicating the thought processes used whilst explaining the design rationale. Steve is extremely adept at understanding the flow of a catering operation, both back-of-house within the kitchen and servery areas as well as front-of-house from the customer experience, striking the correct balance between the multiple areas in a typical catering operation.

Steve has a thorough knowledge of the most up to date equipment options available on the market, plus when coupled with years of developing supplier relationships gives Steve the ability to carefully select equipment and designs that will work together well, come with good follow-up support and provide value for money.
