Andrews Dehumidification assists Sheffield school construction

The construction of a new school in Sheffield prompted one of the country’s leading infrastructural companies to get in touch with us to assist with the latter stages of completion. The contractor in charge of the building contacted us regarding a temporary heating hire arrangement which was needed to support the laying of wood flooring.

Before this process could take place, however, it was important to ensure that the temperature of the areas in which wooden panels were to be laid had been kept at 18⁰C or above for at least 48 hours. This was to ensure that air humidity was at a normal level for habitable premises but also to dry any concrete or surfaces that could have conceivably been damp or contained moisture.
