As such, precautions needed to be taken to ensure the marquee was comfortable regardless of the outdoor ambient temperature.

Andrews Air Conditioning aid successful broadcast of James Bond Spectre premiere

With the new James Bond movie now hitting cinema screens across the UK, box office predictions have tipped the film to gross close to $1billion by the end of 2015. It is of no surprise, then, that the premiere for Spectre at the Royal Albert Hall was attended by a seemingly endless list of celebrities that even extended to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

All were present to witness the debut broadcast in London, leaving no room for error from a transmission perspective. Organisers were naturally keen for the event to be a resounding success and so every logistical factor was thoroughly considered beforehand – including cooling of the projector room. Should vital electronics or servers overheat on the night, consequences would likely include a complete inability to show the film.

University in Wales seeks air conditioning

One of Britain’s leading education institutions recently required temporary cooling for a series of graduation ceremonies during the summer period. Rising seasonal temperatures combined with large numbers of people in a confined space had caused the university’s main hall to overheat, and as such a short-term solution was needed. The client had a fixed cooling arrangement on-site but our portable units were also required to supplement this effectively.

The enquiry was swiftly handled by a member of our contact centre who was able to recommend equipment suitable for the application. This in turn ensured that a site survey was not necessary and enabled three Cyclone Evaporative Coolers to be delivered within hours of the initial call.

Major snooker competition seeks temporary climate control

A world-famous snooker theatre contacted us regarding the need for appropriate cooling during a two week tournament. The client – who was using Andrews Sykes’ services for the ninth consecutive year – had a heat problem caused by lighting and the sheer volumes of people inside. Temporary equipment was therefore required in order to effectively counteract these unfavourable conditions.

We supplied the facility with three PAC22 air conditioners – two for the main auditorium where matches were played, and one for the media area backstage. This solution proved to be adequate in cooling not only the players, but also reporters and snooker fans that were in attendance.

The festival organisers have been clients with Andrews Sykes for years.

This meant that there was a need to reduce the temperature within certain areas. We provided two Polar Wind 4.1 kW air conditioning units on a short term hire, each unit was strategically placed, so that the individual cabins would not be compromised, whilst still managing to cool the sensitive areas. The Polar Wind has a fully automatic thermostat and a remote control, it’s totally portable and can be positioned to direct a welcome breeze of cool air anywhere in a room. The job was specified on site by one of our engineers, ensuring for the best solution on last minute changes.
