Lock, Stock and one Smoking Extractor Fan!2019-09-19T14:28:54+01:00

Project Description

The Problem:

A top London hotel – which has featured in some iconic British films such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels – needed a kitchen extractor fan replacing urgently.

The fan was linked to the kitchen’s gas supply – so when it went down, everything else went with it. The hotel management were therefore faced with having no facilities with which to prepare the following morning’s breakfast for hundreds of guests.

Our Solution:

Gibbons’ HVAC Services manager Andrew Knight took a call at 1pm from the hotel’s chief engineer.

We had components delivered to site the same day and our engineers worked through the night to ensure the kitchen would be fully operational for cooking breakfast the next morning.

“Our engineers understood the urgency of the situation and pulled out all the stops to get the kitchen running again. By 6 o’clock the next morning the fan and the rest of the facilities were running as normal.” – Andrew Knight, HVAC Services Manager
