Airkool were asked to initially visit the site with a view to checking over the ducted air conditioning system that had been installed (by others) within the main kitchen area.
The comments from Malcom Barrett, Estates Manager, was that the system did not seem to be cooling effectively, and whilst we were on site we were asked to quote for new air conditioning systems to be installed within a number of key areas.
A full site survey was carried out within the kitchen area, to determine why the units were working so ineffectively, and it was soon apparent that the whole system had been installed incorrectly.
We sent forward our quotation for new air conditioning and also our proposals on how best to rectify the ducting within the kitchen.
We were very mindful of the fact that Dove House Hospice is a local registered charity, so we were keen to ensure that our price was as competitive as we could make it.
Airkool subsequently not only received an order to rectify the ducting within the kitchen, but we were also asked to supply and install all the new air conditioning systems which we had quoted for.
The contract lasted 3 weeks, which did include some out of hours work, this was due to the kitchens working hours.
Whilst on site the engineers were aware that this was a hospice, and that the patients were very unwell, or had a serious life-altering condition, so they had to have empathy whilst still trying to carry out their works in a safe, and professional manner.

The air conditioning is crucial in every room within the nursery, but none more so than in the babies room, this is because babies cannot regulate their own body temperature, so they rely on other sources, having the air conditioning ensures that the babies are always comfortable, which can be a lifesaver in the extreme weather that we sometimes experience.
