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.
As a result, around 60 Polar Wind portable air conditioners were delivered to the hospital out-of-hours. Despite the customer’s familiarity with our kit, they requested that our engineers handle the installation to ensure everything was operating effectively before seasonal temperatures got too warm.
By supplying the kit outside of normal working hours, we were able to move the units around the building and minimise disruption within a busy and fully functional hospital. These were strategically deployed at purposefully selected locations in order to maximise cooling potential without impeding the nurses and doctors who were constantly passing through.
The entire installation was carried out in just a few hours, providing one of the South East’s largest hospitals with an air conditioning hire that will remain in place until September.
