Andrews Sykes provide climate control for world’s rarest dinosaur exhibit

Glasgow is hosting the world’s only original skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex at a public exhibition in Kelvin Hall – and Andrews Sykes have been called in to help!

The 39ft-long T.rex weighs the same as four Mini Cooper cars and has arrived in Scotland on the last stop of its eagerly awaited European tour.

Like a lot of priceless artefacts, the T.rex’s skeleton must be held in a monitored climate-controlled application for preservation purposes, with Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall the chosen location.

Andrews Air Conditioning support 2018 European Championships in Glasgow

More than 4,500 athletes are competing in the 2018 European Championships, which is being co-hosted by Germany and Scotland. The continent’s biggest multi-sport event sees most of this year’s action take place in and around Glasgow during the spell in which regional temperatures are typically at their highest.

Organisers were quick to source cooling equipment prior to the Championships’ commencement on August 2, with a range of applications requiring temporary air conditioning.

As a result, Andrews Air Conditioning was contacted by those responsible for the logistical planning – including Glasgow City Council – prompting the installation of our units in various locations across the region.

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire provide emergency cooling for Glasgow’s leading facilities management company

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire was recently contacted by one of Glasgow’s leading facilities management companies who required an emergency cooling solution for one of their major clients. The project surfaced following the breakdown of their fixed cooling system, which occurred during the peak of summer and necessitated the urgent provision of replacement equipment.

The facilities manager was tasked with providing cooling equipment for a large commercial building housing up to 100 staff  on each floor. An Andrews technician was sent to site to conduct a survey to propose and install a high-volume cooling solution that would successfully reduce temperatures inside the building.

Andrews Heat for Hire on standby as snow sparks chaos in Scotland

Forecasters have issued a fresh warning of persistent heavy snow for southern Scotland, resulting in the Met Office circulating an amber alert asking locals to “be prepared.” Similar notifications are likely to remain in place across most of the country until at least Friday, with more extreme weather expected.

As a result of this anticipated snowstorm, hundreds of drivers spent the night stranded in their vehicles on the M74 in Lanarkshire and Dumfries and Galloway, with the motorway completely shut until the storm passed. Public transport networks and schools have also been severely disrupted, with more than 200 Scottish schools and nurseries shut or partially closed – affecting more than 20,000 pupils.

Scottish client hires Andrews heaters after seeing them on a rival site!

At Andrews Sykes, we pride ourselves on investing time and resources on our marketing to boost our profile and ensure potential customers are aware of exactly what it is we do.

Sometimes, however, business can be generated via the most straightforward situations – like a customer stumbling across our equipment working in situ on another site!
