Carrier Rental Systems supplies temporary services for film maker

With no existing HVAC infra-structure existing when a major film-production company converted a factory building in London into individual sections to create a film set, Carrier Rental Systems (UK) was called in to supply temporary cooling, heating and ventilation. The facilities also included workshops, dressing rooms and a technical centre.

Each of the six separate spaces required its own heating, ventilating and air-conditioning services to maintain optimum conditions for film crews, performers and technical equipment.

Simon Ward, national events manager with Carrier Rental Systems, explains, ‘The client asked us to equip the site with high-efficiency temporary HVAC services so it could operate to full, modern standards during the 39-week film-production period.’

Equipment included roof-top mounted chillers and indirect-fired units for space heating, and a 100 kW boiler to supply hot water to air-handling units. The company also installed and commissioned the plant.

To maintain a dust-free atmosphere during construction, porous fabric ducting was used to supply low-velocity to avoid entrainment of fine airborne particles.

A remote control system enabled crew to switch the plant on and off when the stage set was being used. When turned on again after a take, the supply of cool air was instantly restored without noise or vibration affecting production.
