Although no major breakthroughs were envisaged, there was hope among other heads of state that some common ground could be established at a time where relations between the two countries have frequently been described as at their lowest.

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.

Local council in Essex seeks temporary cooling

A council established in Essex was in need for temporary cooling whilst they replaced their fixed system. The cooling was imperative as they were in the process of doing some building work. The contractor contacted Andrews Sykes to install and deliver the perfect solution.

At once, one of our experts was sent from our local depot in Basildon to conduct a thorough site survey. Due to the limited ducting possibilities it was recommended by Andrews Air Conditioning to use twelve M9OO Evaporative Coolers. The M900 is fully automatic, quiet and safe when in operation, furthermore it’s ideal when access to the outside is difficult. Similarly, it’s economical and runs on a standard power supply, proving to be the perfect solution for the issue at hand.
