How to Clean Rendered Façades

In Europe building cleaning is an essential part of the planned maintenance schedules with buildings generally cleaned every 2 years.  It is a cost that property owners prioritise to protect their investments. Sadly, this is not the case here in the UK and where buildings are left for 10 to 20 years before any cleaning… Read More

  This iconic building sits proudly within the local environment. Our client required us to put a cost, programme and access strategy together to sensitively restore the organic-stained metal roof along with the external façade. Our solution was to visit site and use our equipment and specialist façade steam cleaning solutions to treat and clean… Read More

Materials Innovation

Material innovation and creative architectural façades designs will always play a significant role in assisting building sustainability objectives. Innovation must effectively work in line with functionality, aesthetic and commercial returns in order for it to be an attractive and utilised solution. This need is what can often create limitations in their appeal or speed of… Read More

Electrochromic Glass and Nanotechnology

Electrochromic glass uses installed photovoltaic cells that enable the transition of the façade appearance and rate of sunlight deflection. Over the past five years there has been vast improvement in the
 levels of performance obtained from the photovoltaic cells and as performance increases the costs have decreased. While glass is a favoured product for use… Read More

A More Sustainable Approach for Future Façades

Facades – Future Activity

  Deconstruction, re-manufacturing and reuse of facades The construction of façades lends itself to a sustainable practice not commonly employed in domestic construction.

Deconstructing in place of demolition allows immediate… Read More

Sustainable Façades

GREEN infrastructure in cities and urban environments is transforming the way we live today and the energy use in buildings is undeniably a blisteringly hot topic. The concern voiced is obvious, as buildings represent roughly a third of primary energy use globally. It is crucial that buildings are designed well to minimise energy use during… Read More

Building Envelope Design and Other Solutions

Modern building envelopes are high-
tech components that must meet several requirements and constraints with regards to architecture/planning, structural performance, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, buildability and ultimately, value. As a result, building envelope design has become a specialist discipline where the building envelope engineer (aka façade engineer) collaborates with the other members of the design… Read More
