We know clients want much greater clarity at the beginning of the project, so we have a dedicated building fabric surveying team who can provide clients with the information they need to effectively restore the building façade. Click here for more service options.

We focus on using 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, high heat and specific nozzle design to create highly effective solutions for all building façades.

Benefits include:

  • Façade cleaning test trials create proof of concept, a vision and value on investment
  • A proven specification can be developed from testing, thus limiting damage
  • Cost and programme clarity can be developed from an understanding of the methods
  • By using ‘super-heated water’ we avoid abrasive and chemical cleaning
  • We mitigate damage and façade material failure by adapting specialist techniques
  • We continuously adjust products and methods to ensure that each building and façade type receives a tailored façade restoration solution
  • We adjust all methods to suits the buildings conditions and build up the testing processes
  • Solutions are designed for both historic and modern building structures
  • We can support with any listed building planning consent

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. Speak to James your façade testing specialist.

Our aim is to ensure we provide our clients with as much information and scope to fundamentally improve the condition and value of their building or property portfolio. It’s your building, your investment, and we can help bring your ideas to life and ensure your building is ready for the 21st century.

We love building fabric, we understand it, we manage it and we care for it; speak to a member of our team today to discover how we can help you and your building.
