Nigels Stephensons Retirement

Nigel Stephenson Retires

After 34 years of dedicated service to Allcool (NW) Ltd our longest servicing employee, Nigel Stephenson, has decided to hang up his spanners, screwdrivers and gauges. Over the years Nigel has been instrumental in training apprentices and engineers and seeing them grow into confident and skilled engineers. Nigel will be sadly missed by all his colleagues and customers alike and we would like to wish Nigel and his wife a long and happy retirement.

Local business Allcool (NW) Ltd has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
Employing 24 people, Allcool (NW) Ltd is principally involved in the mechanical sector, specialising in the refrigeration and air conditioning industries.  Allcool (NW) Ltd's most recent clients have included major players such as the Partington Group, Blackpool & Fylde College, Blackpool Council, Bowker BMW, Grand Hotel at Grasmere, Lancaster University, Slater Gordon Solutions, Williams Refrigeration and Metrolink.
The Company's application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the Company's ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.
John Kinge, Technical Director of Safecontractor said, "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place."
More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Allcool (NW) Ltd has done.  The firm's high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.
Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process."
Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice.  Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site.  These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 210 major, nationwide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

Allcool (NW) Ltd working under instruction from AC Electrical, recently installed 10 X 10KW Daikin cassette style air conditioning systems along with two heat recovery fresh air system's into Kirkgate House on the Blackpool Business Park off Squires Gate.
Our first task was to commence with the stripping out of the existing air conditioning systems and remove the old equipment from site.
The large open planned area had been divided into 4 distinct open planned areas. Allcool (NW) Ltd installed 10 X 10KW cassette units that have both cooling and heating capabilities by means of a supper efficient heat pump system. The use of the In ceiling cassette units was felt to be the optimal solutions and were installed with the outdoor condensing units mounted on cantilever brackets with all wiring and pipework secured neatly inside cable tray.
As you can see for yourself, the result was an exceptionally neat and efficient system.

Allcool have recently installed replacement air conditioning equipment for the Prize Bingo Area of Coral Island.  

The existing air conditioning units were all pumped down and de-gassed and safely disposed of in compliance with the F- Gas regulations.  The interconnecting pipework and services were retained and we flushed the copper tube with a solution to remove any residual oil that may have been contaminated.  We then installed three Mitsubishi cassette type air conditioning units with the outdoor units having been treated with a specialist marine coating for added protection against the harsh North West environment that exists here at the coast in Blackpool.  The indoor cassette fascia grills were spray painted black to match the ceiling tiles within the Bingo Area to ensure that they matched the fa├žade that exists in the hall.
It was required that the engineers "Work at height" when installing the outdoor condensing units, once again, our engineers undertake a full health and safety inspection prior to commencing with work on any Air Conditioning installation.

Budgets for Refrigeration and Air conditioning in Educational Institutions 

Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Maintenance Contracts for Educational Institutions.

In line with recent changes to legislation, most academic institutions including, academies, colleges and universities are now responsible for their own finance and budgets when it comes to the air conditioning and refrigeration servicing, repair and maintenance within these institutions.
Allcool (NW) Ltd have worked for over 40 years in the North West and Lancashire areas as well as with many of the borough councils when it has come to managing the refrigeration and air conditioning assets within these institutions.

Air Conditioning maintenance contracts for Lancashire based Universities.

The supply and standards that a company needs to correctly asset and maintain air conditioning systems in these academies, colleges and universities are paramount.  As a starting point in recognising the importance of working in and around children and young adults, all our engineers have DBS certification. We have often found that areas within the academies, colleges and universities that have these systems have a limited window of access. Allcool (NW) Ltd will work with you and has the management team and air conditioning engineers that will work with you to achieve the optimum maintenance contract that works within the legislation requirements and your budget.
