Andrews provide temporary boiler for Public Services

Mechanical engineers at local council in Yorkshire need to replace all ageing and coal fired boilers in public buildings, while safeguarding hot water and heating. Ensuring these services are maintained while removing the source of heat can cause difficulties.

Andrews Boiler Hire was called in to provide a solution that could be used in this project, initially providing heat and hot water for a care home. A 100kW boiler supplied via a temporary bypass system allowed existing fixed boilers to be replaced without interfering with services within the building. Equipment was delivered and installed at times convenient, so as not to disturb patients and residents and to minimalise disruption.

Andrews Sykes – 30 Years of Great Teamwork in British Motorsport

Andrews Sykes has been supplying climate control equipment for events at one of Britain’s leading race circuits since 1983, which, for the fact fiends amongst us, happened to be the last year the Grand Prix took place on a Saturday. The winner, Alain Prost, was amongst a field of names many will remember from when there were more ‘characters’ in Formula 1, such as Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet, Niki Lauda and Keke Rosberg.

The facilities in motorsport and other hospitality events have certainly evolved since then and to ensure what are now expected steady levels of comfort, especially in VIP hospitality, Andrews Sykes  provides automatically controlled heat pump/chiller units capable of maintaining constant even temperatures irrespective of whether it’s a sweltering heatwave or a typically British summer – unrelenting rain and blustery winds.

Deadline looming for flood insurance agreement

Recent ‘flash floods‘ in Co Durham indicator of more householder misery to come?

The current agreement between the government and insurance companies has committed insurers to providing cover for homes at high risk of flooding at a reasonable cost. The expiry date for this agreement is looming however, and as June 30th 2013 approaches with no sign of a renewed agreement, homeowners in high risk areas are understandably concerned.

Fortunately, the Association of British Insurers has recently confirmed they will voluntarily continue to offer flood insurance for an additional month after the current agreement expires, pushing the end date back to 31st July. This will give ministers and the industry more time to decide what will happen next.
