Having supported the Hilton portfolio from condition surveys through to façade and roof restoration projects within the UK, we were asked to undertake a full façade condition survey detailing and providing essential fabric condition information to be used for the specification of repairs during phase 2 of the project.
We were asked to undertake a full façade condition survey across the Paddington property detailing and providing essential fabric condition information to be used to design the specification of repairs during phase 2 of the project. The works included prioritised short and long-term maintenance activities and key data to help re-align the visual aspect of the façades with the client’s vision and performance needs.
Located in the beating heart of Paddington, with its busy roads and being linked directly to the station, it was clear that our specialist abseil teams would be the best choice in terms of access. Whilst documenting and ensuring that all defects across the façades were recorded, mapped and geolocated using our specialist façade management software, the teams removed any loose, fragile, and high-risk materials, maintaining the integrity of the building and a safe environment for all.
With the survey completed and an overall, holistic view of the façade’s condition created, it allowed us to compile an all-encompassing report that documented and detailed the condition of each element of the façade, identified any areas of weakness or concern and prioritised the need for repairs. Having now collated all of the information related to the defects, including location, type size, severity and many more metrics, we are in a unique position to provide the client with a holistic view of the property’s condition. With all of this data documented within our report, we can now work closely with the client to provide them with a pathway from the façade’s current condition, returning it to a truer reflection of its historic heritage and aligning it with their brand vision.
