Case Study

Hired drying arrangement assists school renovation development

Andrews Heat for Hire was recently approached by a construction company after it took over the renovation of an academy school in West Sussex. With work in the latter stages, a hired drying solution was required.

Cold November temperatures in the region meant that it would take far longer than the time available for plaster and flooring to dry inside the new building. The contractor responsible for the project contacted Andrews Heat for Hire before one of our local experts visited the premises.

After carrying out a free site survey of the building and discussing the best solution with the customer, our engineer proposed the installation of an Aurora FH2000 alongside four ASF50 fans. The heating unit was capable of supplying up to 200kW of warm, dry air with the fans deployed simultaneously to maximise air movement.

The FH2000 was situated inside the school’s forecourt with lengths of ducting used to help distribute hot air inside separate entrances. Once operational, the hired drying arrangement worked quickly and effectively to dry cement and wall surfaces.

As a result, our client was extremely complimentary of the set-up and knowledge of our technician before confirming they would be contacting us for similar projects in the near future.
