Our reliable and unique service allows us to guarantee the delivery of equipment to your site within four hours of receiving your instructions. We recognise the tight time constraints that exist within the construction industry and pledge to act quickly to whatever problem you encounter. Our site engineers are experienced in working on construction sites, they carry the necessary PPE equipment and many have CSCS cards. For large projects we offer a full method statement and risk assessment to meet the necessary health and safety requirements. We will help you counteract bad weather and adhere to project deadlines without incurring added costs or a damaged reputation.

Unexpected temperature drops often require an immediate reaction - particularly in the construction sector where continued operation and safety is imperative. We will provide an urgent solution should a breakdown occur and also assist you in measuring the temperature and humidity on site for long term installations. At Andrews Heat for Hire, we have the UK’s broadest range of adaptable, high performance units suitable for multi-storey buildings or solitary rooms.

We regularly work with building contractors and construction firms, producing and installing heating hire packages according to their individual specifications. Our impressive track record in accommodating virtually any kind of scenario is substantiated by frequent repeat business from clients who trust us. With a network of 30 depots nationwide, we will have your equipment on site and functioning almost instantly.

Wet or damp conditions on a major building project or a small-scale job can have severe repercussions if the problem isn’t countered effectively. Our multi-purpose heaters and dryers can be employed in many scenarios - from drying buildings following flood damage or wet trades to concrete curing or heating an area containing delicate materials. We understand the importance of keeping a site warm and dry to facilitate continued work on a project, and thus allowing it to be completed on time.

Our range of hire equipment spans small, compact units and extends to high capacity industrial models capable of heating even the largest of areas. We also stock a wide range of portable dehumidifiers which will help your site overcome moisture and humidity problems. Regularly used within the construction industry, our units will help speed up the drying process and allow work to continue as normal.

We have years of experience working with the UK’s leading construction companies nationwide, we also work closely with local building contractors on the smallest of projects, helping to maintain or restore a practical environment. Time lost on projects due to damp surfaces or flood damage costs money, so we understand the importance of reducing this risk. We are confident that our selection of electric and indirect oil-fired heaters cover all conceivable problems, and are here to help should they arise.

During winter, cold snaps often bring on unwanted ice and frost which can prove problematical if not dealt with quickly. Implications of this can vary from frost damage to newly laid concrete or plaster, freezing pipework, difficulty achieving the required conditions for wet trades or simply making the surroundings more dangerous for builders and workmen.

At Andrews Sykes, we specialise in the instant hire of temporary heaters, allowing your business to continue functioning efficiently. Our competitors cannot match our wide fleet of commercial heating units, nor our pledge to deliver reliable heat for hire 24 hours a day. If you are managing a building site or a construction business, we can help you.

Our units are available for sale or rental and stocked nationwide to ensure rapid delivery, regardless of your location. We offer free site surveys, where our expert engineers can advise on the best solution to your problem. We provide a cost-effective remedy and give continued support throughout a period of hire. For emergency response to a breakdown or routine maintenance assistance, call us on 0800 211 611. Alternatively, complete an enquiry form and one of our experts will be in touch.

Andrews dry concrete flooring at tarmac company warehouse
Before concrete can be laid during the winter period, a series of precautions must be taken to ensure the composition sets correctly. When outdoor temperatures are low, concrete naturally sets more slowly and can even stop completely if it gets colder than 5°C. In some cases contractors will alter the mixture constituents, but this may not always be feasible if the weather fluctuates too unpredictably. A large building materials company encountered this precise scenario at one [...]
