Legal firm arranges maintenance visit before work from home directives change

Prior to a well-known solicitors in London requesting that staff return to the office following an easing of Covid restrictions, the facilities manager responsible for the building suggested that all air conditioning systems be serviced while building occupancy was low.

Due to the premises effectively lying empty for the best part of 18 months, the air conditioning equipment had not been used at all during this period. Our client considered it in their employees’ best interests to ensure that air within the building was as clean as possible, hence the need for our involvement!

Andrews Air Conditioning was appointed to provide a maintenance visit and assess all existing units, and this was overseen by our local engineer. Following the initial appointment where the equipment was serviced and cleaned, we then recommended an ongoing plan which included F-gas certification and TM44 energy efficiency surveys.

Our client was also keen to introduce more fresh air into their offices, prompting us to propose the installation of some heat recovery units. This technology helps supply clean air as required, delivering the necessary air changes to ensure the office environment is conducive to preserving the well-being of staff – and in the most energy efficient way possible.

With the needs of customers always at the forefront of everything we do, our engineers ensured that the majority of the work was conducted outside of the traditional 9-5 working hours to prevent overcrowding and minimise any potential risks on site.
