Andrews Sykes flood packages put to action!

When a burst pipe caused major flooding in an apartment block just before handover, the construction team needed to act fast. They called on Andrews Sykes to provide emergency temporary equipment.

The property management company reported that water had flooded into multiple apartments over two floors, causing extensive damage. With the building scheduled for completion and handover in just days, time was of the essence to dry out the affected areas and avoid costly delays. We conducted a detailed site survey, provided technical recommendations and stayed in close communication through delivery and installation.

Within 24 hours of the initial call, Andrews Sykes had a comprehensive drying package in place: - 2 x FH111 indirect-fired oil heaters - 6 x FD40 refrigerant dehumidifiers - 6 x ASF50 ventilation fans

The heating and drying units were carefully positioned both inside and outside the building in line with site regulations. The powerful indirect heaters supplied warm, dry air from the exterior, while the dehumidifiers and fans circulated air and removed moisture inside the flooded apartments.

The solution allowed the construction team to quickly dry out the water-damaged areas. This enabled them to proceed with secondary fixing work and keep the high-profile project on schedule. The customer was extremely satisfied with the reactive service and fast turnaround from Andrews Sykes.
