Case Study





Sheffield University


Specialist cleaning, restoration and protection of aluminium structure

Materials tested & cleaned

Aluminium effected by silicon leeching

The Hub is as an iconic stainless steel structure that is home to the Student Union at Sheffield University.

The University needed a full building clean and we needed to identify and create a strategic facade management programme to keep it clean. Previous to cleaning, the building had suffered from heavy leeching from the black silicon sealants that had been used in its construction. The sealants quality had broken down through weathering and UV damage from which we were asked to investigate and test a number of different solutions to keep the building cleaner. We were also required to assist in delivering a solution for the general maintenance and protection of the building facade
