Light abrasive cleaning

If your building cleaning project requires some gentle abrasion, Building Transformation can help you to select the most appropriate aggregate method for your building, soiling type, level or paint.

VorTech is a ‘swirl-abrasive’ system, borne out of the “Jos” technology, originally developed in Germany, in the 1980s. The system uses a selected abrasive carried by a flow of compressed air to a nozzle, at which point, water is added. The mixture then passes through the nozzle and exits in a vortex, which is directed at the substrate to be cleaned.

The VorTech system we use is an innovative way of cleaning your building and helping to shift stubborn coatings and paint.

The VorTech system has many advantages including:

  • Portable design.
  • Requires minimal maintenance.
  • Robust, user-friendly controls.
  • Improved sensitivity and repeatability of adjustment.
  • Reduced reliance on electricity.
  • Reduced costs.
  • Increased performance without compromise of sensitivity

The VorTech is our go-to solution for light aggregate cleaning, as it allows us to clean your building sensitively and efficiently. Coupled with the environmentally friendly build, this method of cleaning sits within the conservation-based approach of Cladding Transformation and many of our clients.

Sandblasting

Certain situations call for a more abrasive method of cleaning in order to achieve the desired result.  This is where blast cleaning and stripping comes into its own.  Delivered at high speed through a hose and nozzle, abrasive material and compressed air hits the surface with a punch, stripping away stubborn rust, dirt, varnish, paint and coatings with ease.  This method is ideal for preparing surfaces for recoating or painting, or simply for removing years (or centuries) of dirt accumulation on aged brickwork.

Our sandblasting services can be used on the following:

  • Stone
  • Brick
  • Timber
  • Steel
  • Flooring
  • Beams
  • Graffiti
  • Residential properties
  • Industrial properties
  • Commercial properties
  • Heritage properties

Testimonials

Building Transformation’s unquestionable honesty and enthusiasm for ensuring the client receives the correct whole-life solution (rather than a quick fix) resulted in us being able to ensure the building was not only returned to its former glory, but will stay that way for years to come. I would recommend them to anyone.

Kenny Gash - Carillion Amey

The work provided by Building Transformation was excellent. Their product and building exteriors knowledge is detailed, comprehensive and practically applied to the client’s needs. They offer a professional, detailed, high-quality and customer- focused service which meets the short, medium and long-term needs of the client, and provides practical, cost-realistic advice.

Kerry Quinn - Echo Arena

Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site. The quality and level of support provided by Building Transformation is priceless to any client/contractor.

Marc Blow MCIOB MBIFM - Carillion Amey

The approach and advice on setting up the works at the Wolverhampton Civic Centre were first-class. Building Transformation’s attention to detail was excellent and the RAMS were followed meticulously to every detail. We were delighted with the works and service, and would not hesitate to use them again, nor hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.

Kevin Egginton - Wolverhampton Council

A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight to deal with the traffic issues, while the site remained open throughout. The project took around three weeks to complete and went exceptionally well; the Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work round dynamic operational issues. The clean was of a high standard and has made a significant different to the image of the building. A very difficult job done well.

Suzanne Green - Land Securities

May & Co have worked with Building Transformation on a number of projects which have included external building cleaning and refurbishment. They provided a great service, supported by the high level of documentation from the initial quotation to books and industry-related guidance, all relevant to our project.

Anton Theobald - May & Co

I am very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. Also the level of cleaning provided and attention to detail is much appreciated.

Waqas Bin Tahir - Ibis Southampton

I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business.  They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping slowly win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.

 Needless to say Building Transformation is a name that is now becoming known and respected.

Simon Attwood - Broadgate Estates Ltd.

will be my pleasure to recommend Building Transformation.

Our Philosophy

21st Century Façades: Breathing Life into Urban Landscapes

The urban environment has changed enormously since the majority of building maintenance concerns were focused on more traditional masonry structures, materials, pollution levels, weather patterns – even the height of most buildings are completely different to a hundred years ago. This book illustrates how Building Transformation’s methods breathe new life, energy and vitality into building skins and cities.
