Andrews Heat for Hire keeps shoppers warm at new retail store

A popular international retail chain opened another of its stores in Bristol last week, amidst much anticipation from those living nearby. Local news outlets reported that crowds of eager shoppers had assembled ahead of the grand opening – and we played our part in ensuring that all went according to plan!

The premises in question had previously been occupied by a well-known electronic hardware company and was thus significantly larger than most of our customer’s other stores in Bristol. Because of this, their internal HVAC system needed to be more powerful than those typically found in smaller outlets.

High capacity heating arrangement aids hotel building fit-out

With a new hotel in Croydon said to be just a few months away from opening, the construction company responsible for the project turned to us for a temporary heating solution. Their requirement stemmed from the need to complete the interior fit-out as quickly as possible, which was being made more difficult by the unfavourably cold conditions.

Our client had arranged for various sub-contractors to visit the location and undertake timber works, joinery, plastering and floor laying, so it was critical that the temperature and humidity levels of the building were conducive to these tasks.

National food outlet seeks tailored heating replacement

In a lot of cases, simply delivering and installing temporary hire equipment will sufficiently address whatever problem our customer has encountered. However, more complicated issues require a greater degree of intuition – and that’s where our highly proficient engineers come in.

Earlier this week, we received a query from a well-known food retailer after their heating system stopped functioning.

Former RAF airport seeks temporary heating for hangar

Before a newly constructed aircraft hangar could be deemed ready for use, the lead contractor had to ensure that flooring was properly laid to facilitate the storage of planes. Although seemingly a straightforward process in principle, extra care and attention must be paid to guarantee the floor could handle the intense load of aircraft weighing several dozen tonnes.

To achieve this a special resin is chemically fixed to the substrate beneath, which enables it to withstand sustained vehicular traffic and general abrasion. During the application process, temperatures must be maintained at approximately 15⁰C. This can present quite a challenge due to the sheer size of a typical hangar – and this is where we come in!
