GB Rowing Team kept cool by Andrews during World Championship preparation

As experts in the provision of temporary climate control solutions, Andrews Air Conditioning has provided the GB Rowing Team with cooling relief for a number of years.

The World Rowing Championships took place in Bulgaria in 2018, with both the women’s and men’s squads desperate to excel at what is seen as the most prestigious event on the rowing calendar.

And while the weather in the UK was comparatively cool as we approached the end of August, temperatures in Le Temple-sur-Lot – where the women’s team were training – reached 35°C most days.

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire assists Charlton Athletic with pre-season preparations

With overwhelmingly hot conditions making Charlton’s gymnasium and indoor training facilities uncomfortably hot for players during their pre-season workouts, an air conditioning solution was required to help restore temperatures to a more comfortable level.

The players were undergoing various fitness tests at their Eltham training ground, with a cooler environment required to ensure their schedules were not impacted in any way.

A club representative contacted us to explain the problem before an expert from our local depot visited the training ground to assess which equipment would be most suitable. After assessing the size of the areas in which cooling was required, it was decided that three PAC 22 split type air conditioning units would be ideal for the application and quickly address the stuffy environment.

Hospital requests seasonal cooling hire for patient wards

During the build-up to summer, Andrews Air Conditioning was approached by a prominent South Coast hospital seeking temporary comfort cooling across multiple wards. The client had been reassured by our COVID-19 precautions and was keen to select a supplier committed to health and safety best practice. Our sanitisation and sterilisation procedures and use of PPE on site were specifically cited as being among the reasons they opted for us.

Having hired air conditioning units to this hospital in each of the previous four summers, we were familiar with their requirement and what it was they needed. Their preference, as always, was to deploy several individual units within each ward to provide comfort cooling for both patients and staff.

Air conditioning hire cools London hospital

When the estates team for a well-known South London hospital enquired about hiring a large number of temporary air conditioning units, our regional expert was on hand to advise.

It was crucial that we provided suitable equipment for the application without exceeding a very strict expenditure budget that was outlined to us at the point of contact.
