Darren Cummins from Haughton and Young commented:
“Euro Gas supplied the plantroom equipment and heat interface units to the Gardiner Street Student Accommodation Project. We found Euro Gas excellent in dealing with any queries directed towards the equipment that they supplied. They offered great support to HYL before, during and after the construction stage to ensure the Client benefited from the HIU’s full capabilities. This Project had an accelerated programme due to the building needing to be operational before the new academic term and once utilities came live, Euro Gas were able to meet the tight commissioning deadline with 89 Heat Interface Units commissioned on time.”
