Pins Social Club is opening in 2020, and is a jaw-dropping addition to the city’s social scene. Combining bowling, pool and shuffleboard with amazing food and one of the longest bars in the city, it has turned an old warehouse on Duke St into one of the best venues in the city.
Turning an abandoned warehouse being used as a car park into something as cool as Pins is a challenging design problem, and those challenges extended to the ventilation system.
We designed, manufactured, and installed a bespoke 6metre Kitchen Canopy with custom duct work onto the terrace. We had the duct work sprayed to match the building’s exterior finish to look aesthetically pleasing.
Epic Hotels run some of Liverpool’s best hotels and apartments. Based in in Liverpool city centre, the company’s portfolio includes high-end apartments and hotel across the city, including the gorgeous Seel St Hotel.
When the company wanted to add 22 new apartments to their offering, they found ideal premises on Duke St. In keeping with all Epic Hotels venues, the building was unique and characterful – which often presents engineering challenges to implement the extremely high level of services that they demand.
We worked with designers to come up with a installation that both suited Epic Hotels requirements and satisfied the stringent building regulations that apply to grade 2 listed building.
We installed 22 split air conditioning systems working around the clock to meet the deadline that the schedule demanded if the aparthotel was to open as planned. We manufactured a bespoke suspended steel platform to allow all condensing units to be fitted to the exterior of building in accordance with grade 2 listed regulations.
With more than 100 retailers and food outlets. St Johns is the largest shopping centre in Liverpool. It was built in 1969 and is a familiar site to anyone who visits Liverpool city centre! One of the main areas in the centre is the food court, which needs to be ventilated, but the elderly ventilation system was not in the best condition. Increasing numbers of breakdowns, damage to the ducting, and growing maintenance costs were causing real issues for the vendors in the food court, who were losing income every time the ventilation system was down.
We designed, manufactured, and installed a brand new, bespoke ventilation system to the food court. New ductwork was repositioned to improve air flow, which is a critical factor in ventilation installation and can often be overlooked. Better airflow means less pressure on other parts of the system (like ventilation fans), and can drastically improve system efficiency – which means lower running costs! Our installation team worked hard to avoid any further cosmetic damage, and the system was installed during night shifts to keep disruption to the centre to a minimum. The whole project was installed, tested and commissioned in just a little over three weeks, which is impressive for this sort of job!
Merseyside air conditioning and refrigeration firm Everkool is supporting foodbanks during the coronavirus lockdown as it seeks to play its “small part” in keeping vital services running across the area.
The Bootle-based company, which has seen some of its projects delayed due to social distancing measures, is offering free maintenance and repair work to foodbanks and charities providing food to struggling families.
The firm is also working with a variety of supermarkets to ensure their refrigeration systems are fully functioning given the increase in customer numbers and food deliveries.
Craig Greenwood, Everkool founder, says: “Like all businesses, Everkool has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the current lockdown.
“Some of our projects have been put on hold but we will hopefully be in a position to get back to business as usual.
“This isn’t the case for a lot of people who have seen their jobs lost and incomes disappear and who are now forced to rely on foodbanks.
“We wanted to do something meaningful during this crisis and that’s why we have committed some resources to support charities and food banks.
“We are also on call to supermarkets and other important suppliers to help keep them moving during this demanding time.
“A spirit of solidarity is fundamental in the battle against COVID-19. We are proud to be playing a small part in keeping vital initiatives running throughout Merseyside.”
Everkool was established by Craig Greenwood in 2009. It is one of the biggest providers of air conditioning and ventilation services in the North West.
One of the North West’s biggest air conditioning and ventilation businesses is expanding operations on Merseyside and is looking to recruit 10 apprentices.
Bootle-based Everkool is a leading supplier of air conditioning services and has enjoyed significant growth in recent years having won a string of new contracts with organisations including Knowsley Council, Signature Living and Iliad Group.
The company introduced an apprenticeship scheme last year aimed at school leavers who are not in education, employment or training. The programme has been so successful that Everkool’s founder Craig Greenwood has announced that it will be expanded with 10 new places available on the scheme from this summer.
Mr Greenwood says: “Our business growth in 2019 surpassed our expectations and has placed us in a very strong position. It has allowed us the opportunity to establish the apprenticeship programme and recruit new engineers.
“The apprenticeship scheme has been so successful that we are expanding it from this summer. We’re creating new jobs and opportunities for school leavers who want to get a good trade behind them.
“This is particularly important to me having left school without qualifications. I want to help young people get this foot on the career ladder.”

Following a tender process, Everkool was appointed in August 2014 to supply and install a new air conditioning system to the Beatles Story, consisting of 17 A/C units, into a Grade II listed building in the Albert Dock.
Method statements and risk assessments were supplied and site visits, prior to the installation, identified any additional considerations to be integrated into the project plan and schedule. As an example, traffic control measures were put in place to ensure the safety of the general public whilst unloading the VRF condensers.
The project required additional building, electrical and ventilation works to be undertaken. Everkool used its trusted sub-contractor partners to complete the works, with Everkool maintaining main contractor status.
A timeframe of 14 days was stipulated for the works to be completed. We delivered the installation in full, within 11 days, to the agreed budget and the immense satisfaction of the Client.
Servicing and maintenance
Everkool is now contracted to service and maintain the air conditioning units at The Beatles Story on an annual contract. We also have a service and maintenance agreement with Merseytravel which covers the refrigeration equipment at the Fab Four Cafes, Pier Head and in the Albert Dock.
We are continuing to provide on-going work to Merseytravel, as a direct result of satisfaction with our delivered works, and look forward to continuing the strong relationship for years to come.
Everkool is a longstanding and trusted partner of Signature Living Hotels.
We have undertaken a number of one-off systems installations for, and on behalf of, the Client and have a number of servicing and maintenance contracts in place across their estate portfolio.
Our installations include air conditioning and heat recovery systems, air handling units and a variety of refrigeration solutions; our servicing and maintenance contracts cover each of the installations.
We have selected the work we have undertaken in the prestigious 30 James Street as a reference point.
30 James Street – ‘Home of the Titanic’
We were required to specify, supply & install new air conditioning and heat recovery systems (97 AC units & 6 fresh air extract systems) as part of a complex full refurbishment of the Grade II listed building into a 63-bed boutique hotel.
The installation, planned and project managed personally by Craig Greenwood, was delivered to the Client agreed specification, within the agreed timeframe and to the stipulated budget.
As a direct result of the Client’s satisfaction with the installation works, Everkool were awarded the contract to service and maintain the equipment – in addition to existing contracts with other Signature Living buildings.
“Our projects need trusted contractors, which is why we continually call upon Everkool. All work is completed on time, within budget & to our exacting requirements.”

Viva Brazil is an award winning, authentic, Brazilian-style steakhouse in Liverpool. Everkool is contracted to provide servicing and maintenance to the 6 air conditioning and 16 refrigeration units within the restaurant.
As with every one of our Clients, we have a proven methodology to ensure we deliver a first-class and reliable service and are able to respond quickly to any urgent call-outs should any of the equipment develop a fault or a breakdown.
A fast response is essential for this Client, due to the nature of the business – equipment failure could damage the dining experience, the restaurant’s reputation and lead to substantial waste of foodstuff supplies.
The Servicing and Maintenance contract details the specification and precise nature of the works to be undertaken during each visit, together with the agreed service intervals. We maintain an electronic asset register on behalf of the Client, detailing make, model, serial numbers, full service history and the next scheduled service.
Viva Brazil are so delighted at the high quality of the work we provide and our responsiveness that their sister company, has actively commenced a programme of referral marketing on our behalf resulting in our acquisition of contracts with Red Hot Buffet in Liverpool and Manchester.

‘Shankly’ is a name proudly associated with the city of Liverpool, with Liverpool FC and now with Everkool.
The latest in our long-standing relationship with the Signature Living Group, and just one of many prestigious projects we’ve been commissioned to work on in recent years, The Shankly Hotel is a tribute to one of football’s greatest managers Bill Shankly.
Currently offering spacious accommodation in the form of 83 luxurious rooms and suites filled with unseen memorabilia rooms, a trendy bar and a 150-cover restaurant, the landmark hotel will go a stage further in Spring 2016 when phase two is completed.
Phase two will include a rooftop bar and restaurant, infinity swimming pool, conference facilities and 100ft slide which will be used to raise money for charity.
Our extensive works on Phase One of the project, undertaken between February 2015 and its grand opening on 15th August 2015, covered the majority of the building inside and outside and from the roof downwards and involved the full range of air conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration services.
Having previously worked together on numerous occasions, the Everkool team, other contractors and the Client were already familiar with the working practices and processes – a contributory factor in the early completion of the project – a £20million project which was anticipated to take 14 months but was actually completed within six months.
As an accredited installer and Business Solutions Partner with Mitsubishi Electric we receive frequent technical training and support on the latest technologies and initiatives, insight which enables us to specify the best possible equipment to meet the needs and budgets of our Clients.
For The Shankly we recommended Mitsubishi Electric’s City Multi Range, Mitsubishi Electrics’s equivalent to large scale VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) applications. The City Multi range is widely acclaimed across the sector and recognised for its substantial increase in seasonal energy efficiency, low running costs and reduced CO2 emissions.
Its flexibility, with up to 50 indoor units can be connected from just 1 outdoor unit, was also a factor as we look ahead to the next stages of The Shankly’s development. A total of 12 City Range systems and accompanying ductwork were installed.
Mitsubishi Electric indoor fan coil units were custom sprayed to match the Client’s chosen colour scheme and blend seamlessly into the rooms and suites, with each treated with Blygold’s anti-corrosion coating to ensure optimum performance and to maximise its lifecycle.
To date 75 fan coils have been installed, with a further 45 scheduled.
Renowned locally amongst Liverpool’s bars and restaurants for our refrigeration expertise, we also supplied and installed the equipment to ensure the stock of food and drinks for the Hotel’s numerous bars and Bastion restaurant is kept at the optimum temperatures. This included the cellar cooling system, the walk-in fridge and freezers, the bar fridges and ice machines
In addition to the core air conditioning works, we supplied and installed 60 extraction systems into the toilets together with the associated ductworks, as well as fire dampers throughout the Hotel.
“It’s no coincidence that we work with Everkool on our most prestigious projects. Craig and his team are meticulous in their attention to detail, which complements the way we work and what we look for from a trusted partner.”
Dave Hailwood, Site Foreman, Signature Living (The Shankly Hotel)
