Brymec delivers next-day for London Luton Airport
Building services component distributor Brymec has supplied a range of air conditioning and plumbing components on a next-day delivery basis for HVAC contractor Principal Cooling while it works on the London Luton Airport project.
Principal is replacing LLAs air conditioning and ventilation systems in several areas of the airport including departures, immigration, international and domestic baggage, arrivals, central screening area as well as communications rooms, goods in/waste away and the terminal building.
The project has not been without challenges. Rory Carron, account manager at Brymec, explains: “LLA is not the easiest site to deliver to, but our drivers have built strong relationships on site and understand the the process to go through to deliver to such a high security environment”.
Brymec supplied 3,500 metres of channel, predominantly in 6m lengths (equating to about 10 tonnes); 4,200m of copper tube and insulation; 1,000m of cable tray; 2,500m of studding, fixings, bracketry, condensate pumps and other sundries such as paint and cutting disks.
The components distributor also supplied 700 of Conex Bänninger’s MaxiPro fittings and its specialist tools from Rothenberger to create reliable, tamper-proof connections from a single action.
Nigel Treanor, Principal Cooling’s contracts manager on the LLA project, adds: “We have used other suppliers, but none of them have the same range that Brymec have… The working relationship with them is also exceptionally good.”
He adds: “Brymec are unbeatable in terms of service and delivery. If we place an order at 4.55pm, it is there at 7.30am the next morning so they can’t be faulted.”
The contract which began in March 2017 is now due for completion this year.
