Heater hire cuts screed drying times to keep building project on track

Now more than ever, construction companies are under great pressure to complete building projects on time and ensure that any potential causes of delay are quickly addressed. One of the most common reasons for deadlines being pushed back is a need for screed to dry properly, which can lead to developments grinding to a halt and prevent labourers from accessing the impacted areas.

This was the situation facing a contractor responsible for upgrading a large sports complex in Cambridgeshire and prompted them to get in touch with Andrews. Our client had initially hired some DE190 electric heaters from us to assist the drying of resin in a toilet block on site, but they now required a high capacity heating solution for the project’s next phase.

With gyms and sports facilities obliged to undertake a series of updated precautions following the relaxation of blanket lockdown restrictions, operators have been forced to adapt in order to keep their customers safe.

Andrews Heat for Hire responds to hangar boiler failure

An airport located in the South East was forced to find a temporary solution following the disastrous failure of their ageing boiler system. Temporary equipment was urgently required to keep workers warm and ensure the continuous running of daily operations until a permanent boiler replacement could be sourced.

The size and scale of the average hangar makes them notoriously difficult to heat in a cost-effective manner, as pointed out by the client. Essentially, they were looking for a short-term source of heating that could deliver large volumes of warm air economically while their boiler system was out of action. Large numbers of people work inside the hangar each day, ranging from mechanics, transport staff, strategists and cleaners. The working environment is therefore extremely important, with low temperatures a potential safety issue.
