Abseiling, cradle work, tracked access and access solutions
Tall buildings, limited access or challenging to access structures, we provide a complete solution from designing an access strategy to implementing the building maintenance and solution to restore or repair the external building fabric by using a variety of access methods. Our work will often take place whilst the building is in full use, but programmes and access strategies adjusted to meet onsite and tenant’s requirements or delivered through the night where required. We use a variety of building access methods such as temporary cradles, façade hoist, scaffolding and abseiling methods to restore, repair, stabilise or painting building facades.
We specialise in the following façade maintenance services for tall and high rise buildings:
- High level building repairs and maintenance
- Façade condition surveys
- Bridge inspections and structural surveys
- Grouting and resin injection
- Concrete protection and reinstatement
- Brick and stone repairs / replacement
- Application of surface impregnators and protective coating
- Inspection and replacement of gaskets
- External building painting and redecoration
- Façade cleaning and restoration
- Cleaning of canopies, cleaning roofs and atriums
We work with surveyors, facility managers, engineers, property manager, architects, local authorities, building owners and managers to create bespoke solutions for façade maintenance activity, both on a planned or re-active basis using abseiling methods to tackle problems with tall or in-accessible structures. We provide building surviving solutions, building fabric condition surveys, materials testing, masonry repairs, concrete re-enforcement, building cleaning and painting projects with minimum impact to the surrounding environment.
Tall, challenging to access and modern buildings are often constructed with no façade maintenance plan or understanding to proof the facades condition into the future. Beautifully designed and intelligently engineered building facades are often inaccessible, materials weathering and decay cycles not fully understood, leaving a heavily invested structure little scope to be effectivity or pro-actively inspected, cleaned or maintained in the future. No other building captures your eyes and imagination like a tall building structure. Tall buildings, skyscrapers and modern architecture continue to push the boundaries of material design and performance, thus creating a greater need to ensure that the building fabric can be safely accessed and maintained into the future.

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.
