Popular TV network seeks temporary cooling during upgrade

Earlier in 2020, Andrews Air Conditioning was contacted by one of the world’s largest mass media companies to discuss a long-term project involving a complete overhaul of the cooling equipment in place at their London data centre. Our client operates a widely viewed television channel and was conscious that ageing air conditioning units within their server rooms had lost efficiency and suffered water leakages.

The broadcaster had drawn up plans to replace the entire cooling system with modern equipment and this was due to be installed over two separate phases. Following discussions back in January, our client had made adaptions to their premises that allowed Andrews units to be connected directly to their own ductwork.

GB Rowing Team kept cool by Andrews during World Championship preparation

As experts in the provision of temporary climate control solutions, Andrews Air Conditioning has provided the GB Rowing Team with cooling relief for a number of years.

Prominent UK water supplier requests multi-site cooling hire

When one of the country’s largest water authorities contacted Andrews following an issue at one of their regional pump housing sites, we were quick to take action. Although you might assume that a water company would most commonly require temporary pumps from us, it was an air conditioning hire that was needed on this occasion.

Our customer had rented dozens of portable heating units from us the previous winter, with the successful completion of that particular project culminating in them earmarking us as a potential air conditioning supplier going forward.

UK poised for heatwave with 30⁰C temperatures set to return

An 11-day heatwave is expected to scorch much of the country after Britons experienced the third hottest day on record on Friday 31 July.

The 37.8⁰C recorded at Heathrow Airport that day was the highest temperature of the year, with experts predicting that we could see similar readings on the mercury over the coming days.

Met Office officials have advised that the first part of the week will be mostly warm with unsettled spells of sunshine and scattered showers, before things really hot up from Thursday onwards.

Hospital requests seasonal cooling hire for patient wards

During the build-up to summer, Andrews Air Conditioning was approached by a prominent South Coast hospital seeking temporary comfort cooling across multiple wards. The client had been reassured by our COVID-19 precautions and was keen to select a supplier committed to health and safety best practice. Our sanitisation and sterilisation procedures and use of PPE on site were specifically cited as being among the reasons they opted for us.

Having hired air conditioning units to this hospital in each of the previous four summers, we were familiar with their requirement and what it was they needed. Their preference, as always, was to deploy several individual units within each ward to provide comfort cooling for both patients and staff.

Bespoke air conditioning hire cools hospital during summer

At the beginning of summer, Andrews Air Conditioning was contacted by an NHS Trust searching for seasonal cooling on behalf of a prominent hospital in Hampshire. Our client required a temporary air conditioning hire to be operational for approximately 12 weeks and specified that they would be unable to house any equipment within the buildings themselves, with space also very restricted at ground level.

The customer advised that their existing air handling system was perfectly functional and that, if possible, it was preferred that we provide units that were compatible with this equipment.

Emergency air conditioning hire helps keep vital medical staff cool

The impact of COVID-19 has necessitated that staff working in hospitals wear personal protective equipment (PPE), with direct consequences for nurses, doctors, therapists, technicians and anyone else carrying out their daily duties on site. While this precaution has been effective in reducing the transmission of infectious agents between people, it has put medical staff at greater risk of suffering heat stress and general discomfort.

For this reason, Andrews Air Conditioning was recently contacted by the estates team of a prominent hospital in Gloucestershire. Our client explained that the mandatory use of PPE had greatly affected many of their employees and as such they were looking to create specific areas on each ward that would allow overheating staff to take quick ‘cooling breaks’.
