Expert Façade Restoration & Protection Solutions for Modern Buildings.
Modern buildings are often constructed with little or no clearly defined façade access and maintenance plan. Beautifully designed and intelligently engineered building façades may be inaccessible, or the material’s weathering and decay cycles may not be fully understood. This leaves an expensive structure with little scope to be effectively or proactively inspected, cleaned or maintained in the future. Modern architecture pushes the boundaries of material design and performance, thus creating a greater need to ensure that the building fabric can be maintained into the future.

Building restoration and façade refurbishment projects will often take place whilst the building is in full use, programmes adjusted to meet onsite and tenant’s requirements or delivered through the night where required. Due to the type of buildings we refurbish, their height, shape and size, we design and implement façade refurbishment façade repair or external building painting solutions which use a variety of building access methods such as temporary cradles, façade hoist, scaffolding and abseiling method, cleaning, repairing, stabilising or painting building facades.
