About Air Conditioning Hire During the Olympics

September 26, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 227

Hired air conditioning for hospitality venues at sporting events can prove an invaluable option for organisers responsible for ensuring a comfortable temperature for guests is always maintained.

Soon, we'll all be cheering on TEAM GB With the London 2012 Olympic Games being less than a year away, those accountable for the construction and completion of the Olympic facilities will be feeling the heat now, as scheduled deadlines and final inspection dates loom.

During the Olympics, venues offering hospitality will need to provide pleasant temperatures for guests. The last thing Olympic organisers will need is for visitors to go home (or to their hotel) after an event, complaining that they were either too hot or too cold and so could not enjoy watching what has to be the biggest sporting occasion on earth.

Of course, most hospitality venues will have a fixed (or 'built-in') air conditioning system in place, but these could develop a temporary fault or completely breakdown at any time. That is why it is essential that organisers have a contingency plan in place - a back-up plan formulated in conjunction with an equipment hire specialist who offers a 24/7, year-round, emergency call-out service.

Air conditioning hire for pubs showing Olympic events Not everyone will be able to actually attend the Olympics, of course. In the UK, from their armchairs at home, millions will be watching household names, such as Rebecca Adlington, Victoria Pendleton, Phillips Idowu and Jessica Ennis do their best to win gold for Britain.

Pubs and bars showing Olympic events (with big screen TVs) are sure to be packed. But customers will soon drink up and go elsewhere if the venue is simply too hot. And with so many pubs and bars across the UK having old or faulty air conditioning systems, lost trade during the Games is a real possibility unless they too have an emergency equipment hire plan in place.

The option to avail of emergency air conditioning rental is something hotels 'serving' the Olympics in London next year should also seriously consider and plan for, not to mention those responsible for the air handling equipment at the Olympic Village itself, and at the media centres where the world's TV and radio crews will pretty much 'live' for the duration of the Games.

Power failure at Athens Games It is not only a fixed system that can fail during a huge sporting event, such as the Olympic Games. Sometimes a power failure can be responsible for an interruption to air conditioning provision during an Olympiad (and in the weeks preceding the opening ceremony). One month prior to the 2004 Olympics in Athens, in fact, a major power failure hit the city and other parts of Greece. Sensitive locations, such as Olympic venues, were immediately put on an emergency power supply.

At the London 2012 Games, the option to hire emergency generators (to power mobile cooling units) will be something a good specialist hire company will also offer as part of their overall services. All this means that organisers can enjoy peace of mind knowing that, whatever happens, an adequate supply of air conditioners can definitely be provided throughout.

Hired air conditioning units - essential 'Olympic participants' From the moment the International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge announced the London bid's success way back in the summer of 2005, the British Olympic organisers and their staff have been working hard to ensure that when London 2012 finally arrives everything will go without a hitch. Providing first-class hospitality venues where a comfortable temperature is maintained will be expected. The option to hire air conditioning units from a proven specialist means that provision during the Games will definitely meet that expectation, to a gold medal standard!
