New Eaton-Williams service replaces or renews plant

Eaton-Williams has launched a refurbish or renew service for facilities managers. These people often have to decide whether to renew existing air-handling or ventilation plant or refurbish it in situ. Space constraints, limited access, changing conditions in buildings, energy efficiency and environmental issues all have a bearing on the decision. This new service includes a comprehensive feasibility study on site. In most cases, Eaton-Williams can refurbish plant in situ using engineers with vast experience of maintaining and servicing a variety of ventilation and cooling plant. Refurbishment can be cost effective and avoid disruption of services. When it is not cost effective to renew existing plant, Eaton-Williams can provide a renew package based on Edenaire or Moducel plant. Equipment can be tailored to fit into the same plant-room space or locate onto the existing roof kerb. A flat-pack solution enables air-handling plant to be assembled on site when access is difficult. In most cases, the replacement plant will provide greater duty and be more energy efficient than the original installation.
