Heathhall Business Centre has given Brad Barker the flexibility to take on the extra space as his business grows. Our central hub is the perfect location for Cool & Easy’s Head Office, as it’s within easy reach of customers across Central Scotland.
“It’s a good location and because we work a lot in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Carlisle – the accessibility to the motorway is perfect. [Heathhall Business Centre] provide good size units giving us plenty of storage space, great as we also have a roller shutter which makes it easy to access our equipment.”

Cool & Easy supply, install, repair and maintain commercial air conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration systems across Scotland and Northern England. In addition to normal office hours, Cool & Easy provide a 24 hour callout emergency service to customers – 365 days a year.
A Growing Company
Solo entrepreneur, Brad Barker, launched his business five years ago. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength and now employs six full time engineers. Recent clients include Dumfries and Galloway Council, who commissioned the local team to carry out the five-floor retrofit of their fully renovated Irish Street building.
Flexible Business Space
Being at Heathhall has given Brad the flexibility to take on extra space, as and when required. After his first two years of trading, Brad moved into a larger unit with more storage and extra office space to meet the needs of his expanding business.
“Flexible accommodation has been great for us as the business grows. Bigger units and extra storage units are always available, so you can make adjustments as your business changes.”
Company Director, Cool & Easy
Earlier this year, Cool & Easy worked with Hetland Garden Centre in Dumfries on the latest addition to their popular Dino Park attraction. The new Dino Soft Play area is housed in a purpose built, eco-friendly building, which required a full fit out. Cool & Easy designed and installed the building’s fully bespoke air conditioning system, in time for the big launch in July 2017.
The new energy efficient system at Hetland maintains a comfortable temperature throughout by harnessing excess energy to heat cold, outside air and then circulate this fresh air inside the building. Along with the building’s water saving and waste management system, the advanced air conditioning system designed by Cool & Easy has helped put Hetland’s new attraction on the map – not only as one of Scotland’s most popular family days out – but as a leader in eco-friendly innovation.
Since Brad Barker launched Cool & Easy in 2012, he has expanded his business from a one-man-band to a successful team of six full time engineers. Being at Heathhall has allowed Brad to adapt quickly to the changing needs of his business and keep up with increasing customer demand. As his business continues to thrive, Brad’s next plan is to start offering service and maintenance contracts and expand Cool & Easy’s customer base across Scotland.
