AET boosts service and maintenance division
AET Flexible Space, which makes and supplies underfloor air-conditioning systems, increased its annual service and maintenance contracts by 60% in the last six months of 2014. Some of the newly managed sites include Centrica in Aberdeen, the NHS Education Centre near St Thomas’s Hospital in London, 20 Cannon Street in London, 175 Oxford Street in London and 76 to 88 Wardour Street in London. Other contracts include Kestrel Court serviced offices in Portishead and Gloucester.
AET has serviced selected underfloor installations for many years. With many sites approaching or over 15 years’ operating life, the company decided to focus on the promotion of planned service and maintenance for these sites.
Recognising that older installations may also require equipment reconfiguration and upgrades in response to change in use and occupant density gave the opportunity to contact many sites with Flexible Space installations and offer services such as full systems surveys, health checks, reconfiguration, re-commissioning and controls and communications upgrades.
The success of the move has led to another full-time engineer joining the team.
