The Toro Chu kiosk in Auckland’s Sylvia Park mall is a recent bespoke project by Foster Engineering. Owner Rajesh describes the finely engineering steel fabrication as both ‘beautiful and unique.’ Foster Engineering has worked with Raj before, refurbishing nine of his mobile Toro Churro trailers to date. However, a standalone kiosk within an open shopping mall was a new venture for both parties. Apart from a completely new concept, challenges included installation and the long-term security of the kiosk.
The only item supplied was the deep-frying unit. Foster Engineering designed and made everything else, including bespoke stainless-steel benches, sinks, storage draws and units, water and waste tanks.
Kiosk and contents were created at Fosters’ Hamilton workshop, then transported by Foster Transport to Sylvia Park for installation.
Fosters also oversaw the fitting of the electrics, plumbing, flooring and signwriting. The project was completed in the six-week timeframe, which included over 300 hours in steel fabrication.
