The University Of NSW were having a mid year uni gear sale and decided to house it in a pop-up shop. But being the middle of winter they needed a way to keep the merchandise and students warm.The pop-up shop organisers called Pages Event Equipment for their marquee and equipment hire and Active Air Rentals for their temporary air conditioning.
Working in close collaboration we defined the expected heat loads (how many people would be in the marquee), marquee set up, location access, install times and subsequent air conditioner size and ducting requirements.
Based on the key requirements and constraints the new 30kW Portable Air Conditioner with reverse cycle was specified to ensure a toasty warm, yet well ventilated marquee.
A single fabric ducting run was installed along the length of the marquee to ensure even heat distribution.
As the university is a high foot traffic location the install and removal were done on the weekends to ensure student safety.
The three week long pop-up shop event was a great success with the visiting students staying nice and warm, and the merchandise sold quickly.
