Onsite Pre-Project Testing

Our approach and methodology

Steam cleaning also known as ‘super-heated water cleaning’ combined with PH neutral methods and specialist products for environmentally friendly results.

A continuous high temperature and lower water volume. This is delivered as a liquid spray, even at temperatures close to 155ºC. We use the heat to break down and decompose façade pollutants and the light water spray as a sensitive cleaning mechanism to agitate, loosen and remove pollution from the façade. We use minimal water, a high heat and specific nozzle design and specification to provide a highly effective method for all building façades.

By using ‘super-heated water’ we avoid abrasive and chemical cleaning. We mitigate damage and façade material failure by adapting specialist techniques, products and methods to ensure that each building and façade type receives a tailored façade restoration solution applicable to both historic and modern building structures.

CPD training and visualisation app

Façade cleaning is inherently risky; different methods, processes and strategies are used to clean, over-clean and bring buildings back to life. Really there is only one chance to effectively and sensitively restore a building, irrespective of its modern or historic status.

We provide a range of onsite, practical and façade methodology training to help property specialists with a range of façade cleaning and performance related issues. Through this process, we provide clients and management teams with fabric specific weathering and lifecycle demonstrations through our unique app. Call 01234 496 4016 to speak to James your façade testing specialist.

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.

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.
