Supervision and monitoring software that has been designed with modular buildings in mind.
In a world that is becoming increasingly dynamic and unpredictable, the supply chain supporting the built environment has had to become agile and able to deploy at pace.
What slows this down is the buildings themselves. Traditional bricks and mortar construction becomes unfit for purpose as the need for flexibility and scalability comes to the fore. The unpredictability of factors such as office occupancy, electricity usage, demand on data services, healthcare utilisation and classroom occupancy have driven the demand for a new revolution in modular construction, where buildings, like the supply chain, are also becoming agile and able to deploy at pace.
Thermal management of modular buildings is nothing new to Airedale. The telecoms industry pioneered a scalable approach to building deployment as mobile internet swept the world and Airedale were there from the beginning. Supporting industries like telecoms and rail have given Airedale the knowhow and product portfolio to be able to support other sectors as they start or accelerate their own modular journeys.

Providing a suitable thermal management envelope for people and equipment to perform at their best is a critical consideration for modular construction. Gone are the days when students were happy to sit shivering in a cabin in the school carpark. Airedale have drawn on 46 years of providing critical cooling in the world’s toughest applications to develop solutions tailored for modular environments.
Unlike a lot of providers, our solutions aren’t simply designed to operate at a fixed setpoint, pumping air into a space. This approach can result in over-cooling, hotspots and high energy bills. Airedale modular solutions flex with demand, using intelligent software to keep the entire space at optimum condition. We leverage what we have learnt from data centre cooling, utilising ambient conditions to maximise free cooling and dynamically adjusting set points to save energy.
Our supervision and monitoring software has been designed with modular buildings in mind, giving operators holistic views of entire fleets or detailed views of individual spaces at the touch of a button. Additional monitoring points and pressure sensors can be deployed to give precise control of sensitive equipment like batteries, keeping them within their optimum operating envelope whilst saving energy where possible. We are also able to connect to third party devices like security cameras, giving a single source of truth for all critical building services and delivering piece of mind for operators managing sites in remote areas.
Our products and software are backed up with our Special Projects team, dedicated to modular construction. From initial survey through to installation, commissioning and beyond, this team will design and deploy
Our modular building thermal management solutions are suitable for:
Edge Data Centres
Schools / Universities
Rail (Trackside kiosks)
Power (substations, battery storage, renewable energy, peaking plant)
Temporary buildings (constructions sites)
TACKLING THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES IN MODULAR BUILDING MANAGEMENT
Airedale have been involved in precision cooling since 1974 and our products are designed to dynamically respond to both internal and external conditions, optimising set points to reduce energy use.
