Four steps food and beverage retailers can take to cut energy consumption

Posted: Mar 27, 2019

According to the Carbon Trust, the retail sector uses around seven percent of all UK building energy consumption, releasing over five million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year.

It’s big business, and it’s vital we all work towards doing better on energy emissions. The same report by the Carbon Trust estimates that retailers could save as much as 20% by focusing on this issue alone.

Deery me: Four Royale coldroom projects worth talking about

Posted: Mar 14, 2019

Fridges and coldrooms might sound like an everyday thing on the surface, but the truth is a little different: they’re the backbone of businesses across the world.

Shops, restaurants and large franchises all stock thousands of Pounds of goods in these areas and they’re vital in preserving what a business needs to keep service going and clients or customers happy.

For Royale, these types of jobs are a staple that we have grown familiar with indeed. Over the years we’ve installed, improved and maintained more than a few refrigeration areas and coldrooms.

Shopping around: Royale’s contribution to a stunning new-build project

Posted: Feb 27, 2019

It’s been another busy period for Royale, and we wanted to take the time today to share another interesting and challenging project!

Country Food and Dining, a long-standing client of Royale, owns and operates a range of farm shops and garden centres across Berkshire. They came right to us once more for a new build project with some seriously specific requirements. Let’s take a look.

What did Royale do?

November 2018. It doesn’t seem so long ago!

Of burgers and Burberry: A day in the life of a Royale engineer

Posted: Jan 24, 2019

It’s a fascinating, fast-moving career with Royale! Our engineers are always on the move, responding to requests from customers as part of our ‘reactive service’ that ensures a resolution within four hours in the event of a business-critical problem.

Each day is different. With jobs varying from a quick part replacement and testing to a prolonged investigation and repair, a typical day is hard to summarise!

Beating climate change: What’s being done in our industry and the wider world

Posted: Jan 24, 2019

Climate change is at the forefront of our global political landscape, and for good reason: We have one world to live in, and it’s our duty to leave it in a good state for the generations that will follow us.

Today we’ll be describing recent developments and progress on this subject, with a brief round-up at the end of the article to summarise what key industry players – including Royale – are doing to help.

Born in a barn: The Royale team refits a stunning listed building for Quicklight

Not all air conditioning installations are equal!

Once in a while, something special crops up. Where modern buildings are consistent and built to planning specifications, older buildings, and listed buildings in particular, vary about as much as you’d expect – a lot.

What to do, then, when another great Newbury business needs a refit? You call Royale, of course! We thought this job was so unique and interesting that it’d be a shame not to write about it.

The intriguing past and important future of air conditioning technology

Posted: Jan 02, 2019

It sounds incredible, at first glance. You mean we can control the weather, make it hotter or cooler at will? As the saying goes, ‘advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic’!

While we’re all familiar with air conditioning as a modern piece of technology, it must’ve been a different story entirely when it was first invented. From fans to theatres, quite a lot went on.

Today we’re taking a step back to that time. Air conditioning has changed and shaped the world to where we are today, and its impact on industry, the home, and the environment are profound.

Three special moments from the fascinating history of refrigeration

What does a Chinese poem from over 3,000 years ago have in common with an American entrepreneur born in 1783?

Ice, of course!

We can’t get enough of it, at least where food and drink are concerned. Our ability to preserve such items despite the temperature outside has helped drive and advance our societies throughout our entire collective history. Pretty cool, right?

Let’s look at a few more examples. They’re rather interesting if we do say so ourselves!

Royale’s apprentice Dominic Dray beats country-wide competition to take gold in the SkillFRIDGE Challenge

Posted: Nov 27, 2018

Apprenticeships are vital to the trades, and they’re a great way for companies like us to help give the next generation a head-start in a rewarding career.

Our industry is a challenging one to get into. The many certifications and regulations – not to mention the differences between individual units and models – mean an apprentice has a lot to learn, remember and recall on the spot during their work.

It’s our role in the apprenticeship relationship to be encouraging and informative. Air conditioning and refrigeration skills aren’t learned overnight, after all!
