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.

Replacement cooling hire keeps data centre online during system upgrade

Data centres and server rooms are among the most temperature-sensitive applications around, so there can be no room for error when it comes to ensuring that climate control systems are operating properly.

This means conducting regular maintenance which should include the frequent replacement of filters, coils and the cleaning of drains and other components. Many cooling solutions will also comprise of direct expansion (DX) units, which function by cooling indoor air using condensed refrigerant liquid. These, too, will also need to be replaced from time to time to help preserve the longevity and performance of a fixed air conditioning system.

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.

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.

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.

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.
