For 25 years Dawsonrentals have led in the rental of blast freezers, tempering/defrost units, cold storage units, fresh-air chilled production facilities although as we evolved,  projects became more common and in 2007 we set-up a standalone Projects Department.

Customers should expect that for every serious enquiry we take on, that we will attend meetings, supply state of the art CAD drawings and send specialists in to site survey and supply, for each proposal, a detailed specifications document. 

We understand that some organisation will want our input on how they could improve productivity within their production, allowing them to target new opportunities. We do this happily in the knowledge of no guarantee of business for us.

Why do this? Because we know our proposals will be genuinely attractive solutions for our clients which are cost effective enough to allow us to offer this service free-of-charge.


When designing your individual solution, our experienced in-house team will create the design with your needs and requirements in mind. We offer a free no obligation proposal (which includes site measured drawings, specification and refrigeration calculations).

Dawsonrentals can develop a number of designs, including a full 3D model of the solution that we have suggested, giving you an idea of how the solution will look when finished.

Dawsonrentals is accredited by CHAS (Contractor’s Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) as well as SAFE accreditation approved.


Dawsonrentals will be the one point of contact for the entire project, project managing from conception to completion, taking on principal contractor and designer duties as set out in the CDM regulation 2015. This includes managing the construction process on your behalf. 

When constructing your project, we will have a continuous site presence (if required SMSTS & First Aid qualified site managers). In addition to taking care of installation we also have in-house appointed staff that can plan and organise crane lifts along with fully qualified slinger signallers.

Dawsonrentals will produce a project specific Gantt chart, outlining the time the project will take, being updated when it is necessary to do so. We will chair a weekly/biweekly site meeting to ensure the project remains on schedule, design and budget.


Dawsonrentals can be used to modify and extend existing units and even update old units for new ones, this is for the benefit of the client, allowing you to continuously adapt to an ever changing market place.
