Leisure facility reopens on time thanks to swift chiller hire

When the Government’s recent easing of lockdown restrictions allowed many indoor entertainment premises to reopen, Andrews Air Conditioning was contacted on behalf of a UK-based bingo operator desperately in need of some temporary climate control.

Due to an extensive period of inactivity brought about by enforced closure, compressors on the building’s chillers had failed and left the entire facility without any means of cooling. Our client only became aware of the issue two days before the hall was due to welcome back guests, with the issue uncovered out-of-hours on a Saturday evening.

The management team planned to reopen to the public just 48 hours later, on the Monday evening, allowing little time for an air conditioning hire replacement to be sourced, delivered, installed and functional. With equipment needed urgently and a morale-boosting community activity hanging in the balance, Andrews’ local expert reacted quickly to propose a solution and set the wheels in motion.

A 100kW chiller was dispatched the following day and positioned in the car park outside the building. Although a simple project from an implementation perspective, the client was thrilled and relieved in equal measure at the response we provided at short notice. Our reactive service meant that the bingo hall was ready to open its doors to the public and provide a semblance of normality to the many happy customers in attendance.
