Specialist educational institution in London requires cooling

With temperatures in the capital regularly approaching 30°C during August, it was perhaps unsurprising that demand for climate control solutions soared. So when a dedicated drawing school in Hackney required a temporary cooling system, they contacted Andrews Air Conditioning in search of a temporary hire package.

The client was an existing customer of ours and approached us following the breakdown of their fixed units. With much of the South East experiencing a heatwave at the time, alternative equipment was sought immediately as the premises had begun to overheat.

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.

University Contract With Andrews Air Conditioning

Studying and revising for exams throughout the long summer days can be gruelling task. Many students and teachers are left uncomfortable and demotivated, trapped in airless stuffy classrooms, such was the case with one university this summer. The university building is quite old and doesn’t have very good ventilation, this causes rooms to get too hot and stuffy. In any working environment it can be extremely hard to focus when you are overheated and do not feel comfortable. Because the quantity of people that occupy the class rooms vary from hour to hour, day to day, it is very difficult to regulate fixed air conditioning systems in order to provide the ideal level of cooling. Subsequently, a temporary solution is often ideal as you can reduce and increase the units needed.

Andrews Air Conditioning assist University exam week

Universities often contact Andrews Sykes when it comes to overheated offices or classrooms. When a well-known university contacted our specialist Air Conditioning Hire division concerning a lecture hall for their exam weeks, we were on site immediately.

The lecture hall can contain up to 50 students per exam which meant that it overheated very easily. When a room is too hot it can be stressful for the student sitting the exam. Andrews Air Conditioning provided five Polar Wind units which were delivered and installed within a three hour timeframe. The units were placed strategically throughout the hall to ensure a cool ambient throughout. The Polar Wind has a fully automatic thermostat and a remote control. It can be positioned to direct a welcoming breeze of cool air anywhere.
