Andrews Boiler Hire gives students an early move-in date

In spite of their considerable experience in installing temporary heating solutions, engineers from Andrews Boiler Hire often come across a new challenge as was the case when called upon to provide a hot water and heating solution to part of a Scottish University campus.

A new-build construction project at a Kilmarnock college included additional student accommodation which opened in advance of completion of the overall project. Although a permanent boiler was on-site, an unconnected gas supply prevented its commissioning. This meant that the student accommodation could not be used unless an alternative heating source could be found.

Short-term boiler hire was the answer. One of the country’s leading specialists in industrial boiler hire was contacted, and shortly after an engineer from Andrews Boiler Hire was on-site to evaluate requirements.

Following the site survey it was decided a 500kW boiler together with a 3,000 litre fuel tank was required to ensure that student’s living quarters had an adequate supply of heating and hot water.

On-going groundworks nearby prevented the Andrews boiler being installed inside the designated plant room, an alternative location had to be found. This was a short distance from the plant room. Unfortunately it was on the opposite side of a main construction site access road. By erecting scaffolding across the road, Andrews’ engineers were able to run water hoses directly into the campus plant room and tap into existing pipework.

Although boiler hire was originally expected to last six weeks, the 500kW boiler and fuel tank hire from Andrews Boilers actually remained in place for almost three months whilst groundworks were completed.

Andrews Boiler Hire, part of the Andrews Sykes group, is ideally suited to providing a fast response to organisations suffering heating issues. With more than 25 depots strategically positioned across the country; a dedicated team providing true 24 hours, 7 days a week and 365 days service, Andrews Boiler Hire has gained a reputation for delivering expert tailored solutions in less than 4 hours.

The solution proposed by Andrews Boiler Hire for the Scottish campus proved extremely effective, ensuring that students living in the large accommodation block enjoyed comfortable living standards throughout the three-month hire.
