Northampton Town FC seek air conditioning ahead of pre-season friendly

With clients ranging from sports clubs operating at the top level to everyday fitness centres and gymnasiums, Andrews Air Conditioning has a proven and extensive track record of supporting the sports and leisure industry.

In many cases, our relationships with customers span many years and are founded on an understanding that we deliver whatever is required in a prompt fashion.

This was once again evidenced on one of the hottest days of 2021, when Northampton Town FC approached us for a temporary cooling solution. A club representative called our Peterborough depot and specifically requested two portable Polar Wind units to reduce temperatures inside an office at their Sixfields Stadium.

Andrews assists M&E contractors on £19billion Crossrail project

The Crossrail project is now making great inroads and expected to bring the Elizabeth line into passenger service before mid-2022. It is thought that the Bond Street station will accommodate almost a quarter of a million people per day once operational and greatly improve accessibility at one of the UK’s busiest shopping districts.

Work is currently ongoing at the station, with M&E subcontractors and service engineers finalising the installation of electrical systems and other infrastructure inside the building’s UPS rooms. However, with seasonal temperatures becoming increasingly warm and no fixed ventilation or air conditioning system in place, the utilities company in charge of this project was forced to supply a temporary source of cooling.

Mobile operating theatre requires seasonal cooling solution

At present, there is great pressure on hospitals to improve patient flow and increase the number of appointments available for people with existing medical conditions. To facilitate this, healthcare trusts across the country have solicited the services of a world-class clinical provider with the capability to conduct most major procedures from mobile units stationed on hospital sites.

Andrews Air Conditioning was recently approached by a company known as being the standard-bearer in this niche industry, following the development of a cooling requirement. The client explained that hot seasonal weather was affecting temperature management which could have had harmful physiological implications for those scheduled to undergo operations.

Air conditioning arrangement cools hardware at sewage treatment plant

Although it’s probably more common for us to provide pump hire solutions to the water and waste treatment sector, there are also many scenarios that necessitate the use of HVAC equipment. In any sewage treatment plant, aeration is critical to the overall process which means that all mechanical components must function properly to ensure the correct conditions.

This includes the air compressors, which, if not performing as expected, can cause bacteria within the system to die and hamper the effectiveness of the chamber itself.

Designated quarantine hotel hires air conditioning as chiller replacement

As part of a wider effort to prevent the spread of both new and existing COVID variants, strict measures are currently in place for people arriving from a ‘red list’ country. This now means that any person fulfilling the aforementioned criteria must stay in a managed quarantine hotel for 10 full days before they can proceed to their intended UK destination.

To help with the smooth implementation of this process, the government has assigned hotels in all major cities to be specifically used as quarantine centres.

Andrews provides climate control for eagerly anticipated US-Russia summit

As the world watched on with bated breath, President Biden met Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for what many expected to be palpably tense diplomatic discussions in Geneva.

Although no major breakthroughs were envisaged, there was hope among other heads of state that some common ground could be established at a time where relations between the two countries have frequently been described as at their lowest.

And while some observers might have predicted some explosive exchanges and for the two protagonists to get a little hot under the collar, our colleagues in Switzerland went above and beyond to help ensure this didn’t happen.

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire provides emergency cooling for hardware company

When the European headquarters of a major research organization in Portsmouth required an urgent cooling arrangement to solve a problem with their chillers, Andrews Air Conditioning Hire were drafted in to prevent UPS batteries from overheating.

The computer hardware company were experiencing issues cooling their UPS back-up batteries, which are used as an uninterruptible power source should their primary supply fail.

In less than 24 hours, our specialists carried out a site survey and decided to install two PAC 60s, giving 17kW of cooling duty each. These were accompanied by two ASF50 cooing fans, which were situated near the PAC units to help circulate cold air. One of the PAC 60s was placed at the top of the room and the other to the side to cool the two main areas of concern.

Medical research facility seeks huge cooling package for planned shutdown

In order to manage a project efficiently, it is important that even the most seemingly insignificant details are considered before a solution is tailored. The one-size-fits-all ideology may suffice on smaller assignments but on bigger contracts with countless variables at play, this approach will almost certainly lead to complications further down the line.

At Andrews Sykes, we savour opportunities to get involved with the more high-profile or logistically challenging jobs because they allow us to demonstrate our true capability. Everyday hires provide us with sustenance, but it is the way we handle largescale projects that really sets us apart.

Cancer screening stays on track thanks to hired cooling solution

When someone is preparing to undergo a potentially stressful examination, the least a hospital and its staff can do is help maximise patient comfort by any means possible. In some cases, this could be explaining the procedure or providing an isolated area for a greater degree of privacy. On other occasions, a little more is needed.

In the build-up to summer, Andrews Air Conditioning was approached by a teaching medical centre in Yorkshire after a very specific requirement surfaced. Three dedicated breast screening units were becoming too warm for both patients and doctors, and this was thought to be predominantly caused by mammogram machines being constantly in use.

Andrews upstages the competition to acquire server room cooling job

As far as we’re concerned, supplying our clients with the best equipment for their problem is only a small part of what constitutes an excellent service. Clear communication, well-coordinated operations, skilled engineers and a ‘can-do’ attitude all have an impact on the success of a project, which is why we have been able to develop long-term relationships with customers who routinely turn to us in their hour of need.

There are, naturally, also many instances where businesses have been let down by their existing suppliers and require a short-term alternative to fill a void.
