Heater keeps patrons warm at trendy London pop-up food and retail park

The looming winter presents event organisers with a binary decision to make in terms of climate control: do we need heating, or not? In many cases, a temporary solution is a necessity as exposing your customers or guests to a cold and unwelcoming environment would never constitute satisfactory practice in the hospitality sector.

At Andrews Heat for Hire, we are widely experienced in providing events, retail spaces and food outlets with stand-in equipment – particularly around the festive period. Temperatures in recent weeks have begun to noticeably drop off, which has coincided in with an upsurge in enquiries from event planners and operators.

Yorkshire university hires temporary heating and air quality control systems

After 18 months of social isolation and disruption to the education sector, we’re now seeing institutions across the country take action to ensure the wellbeing of students and lecturers. In recent days, there has been palpable excitement across the country as people returned to university campuses in record numbers.

Tour of Britain organisers turn to Andrews for comfort heating

From providing Olympians and professional footballers with temporary climate control equipment to installing complex ventilation solutions at public gyms, it’s fair to say we’ve probably encountered just about every conceivable requirement of the sports and leisure industry. Our experience in this field is second to none, which is why we have been trusted by some of the sector’s biggest associations and clubs.

Earlier this month, we were delighted to add another esteemed name to our extensive list of clients after agreeing a heater hire for a stage of the 2021 Tour of Britain.

Construction site provided with air changes and heating via single unit

Very few industries have remained unaffected by coronavirus, and the construction sector is one of many that has been forced to make changes to ensure the well-being of those working within it. Comfort facilities were quickly identified as an area meriting particular attention, with these environments generally unconducive to allowing sufficient space between people while they relax, dine or take a break.

Because of this obligation, a national building contractor approached us and asked us to provide two of their sites with some heaters. Projects were being undertaken at separate locations in Swindon and Redditch, with the expectation that these would run into 2022. As such, our client was keen to get ahead of the game and source some temporary heating units well before seasonal temperatures began to drop.

Multi-solution climate control arrangement keeps major vaccination hub in service

With the Covid-19 vaccination drive in full flow and the daily average for jabs administered well above 300,000, temporary medical centres are taking measures to ensure seasonal temperatures and conditions remain safe for those receiving their inoculations.

There are four dedicated vaccination hubs within the grounds of a prominent London hospital, with their estates team requesting that we tailor an HVAC solution for the entire application.

Given the unpredictable climate and fluctuating temperatures that have so far been synonymous with April, our client was looking for both heating and cooling. The cold mornings at present necessitate heating equipment, but with this viewed as a long-term project and summer heat inevitable, air conditioning systems have also been earmarked as a top priority.

FM company hires kit for load testing following office refurb

With a significant proportion of office workers still expected to remain at home for the foreseeable future, many facilities managers have taken the opportunity to implement changes while building occupancy is low.

A large commercial office site based at London Wall subsequently took the opportunity to renovate their whole premises, with a comprehensive redesign even extending to new HVAC systems being installed.

In such situations, it is very common for heating and cooling load tests to be carried out in order to verify electrical and climate control capacities within each room. This process allows contractors to identify any inefficiencies within newly installed systems and make the necessary adaptions before the office is back to full capacity.

Andrews delivers heating solution to unconventional production control room

Our experience of working alongside TV companies is extensive and has seen us provide specialist equipment to assist the filming of some of the world’s most popular films and shows. During that time, there is very little we haven’t seen. From creating artificial waterfalls for a specific scene to delivering a quiet high capacity air conditioning system designed to cool an entire TV studio, our track record for implementing solutions speaks for itself.

The aptitude of Andrews Sykes’ engineers is well-known in the industry, which is why a private media company responsible for the production of one of the UK’s best-loved series felt confident about trusting us with a requirement they had.

Happy customer comes back for more with another heating requirement

There is no greater indication of client satisfaction than repeat business, which is something we can definitively pinpoint as being a fundamental reason behind Andrews Sykes’ success and longevity.

The importance of recurring custom is obvious and has been exemplified once again by a recent instance in which a temporary heater hire paved the way for two more projects that we were subsequently asked to take the lead on.

Following the success of a screed drying job at a site along the South Coast, we were approached by the same company and asked to provide another solution for an application at a different location – this time near Didcot.
