High level cleaning, high access painting, surveys and maintenance for tall and difficult to access buildings in London, Manchester, Birmingham and across the UK.

Challenging to access, high level and complex building maintenance problems simplified and safely delivered on a planned and re-active basis. Practical and cost-effective solutions, which help you avoid expensive future repairs or help keep your building safe.

Building Transformation provides flexible high level cleaning and painting services for commercial and domestic properties. Commercial building maintenance comes with many challenges, including difficulties accesses areas of the property for cleaning, maintenance, painting, surveys etc.
Given the overall size and scope of many commercial and industrial properties, which are often multiple storeys high, accessing specific areas is often impossible without suitable equipment. This where high level cleaning and maintenance services come into play.

What is High Level Cleaning?

Our high level cleaning is conducted using a rope access system. As the name suggests, this involves uses rope-based systems to access hard to reach areas of a building. The system is used in many sectors and industries, for everything from construction to building maintenance.
Rope access cleaning involves a technician ascending and descending a building using practical ropework. This allows them to move across the building exterior to complete routine maintenance like washing windows, cleaning stonework, fixing lighting etc.
Rope access painting uses the same rope and harness system to traverse a building exterior when repainting the property. Again, this system allows the painter to reach those difficult areas and awkward spots that other access equipment (such as scaffolding) cannot reach.

The Advantages of High Level Cleaning and Painting

Whether you require rope access cleaning or rope access painting, using this system for building maintenance offers many benefits.
This includes more flexible access to the entire building exterior. While other access systems like scaffolding and GMUs are great for scaling the surface of a building, they lack the manoeuvrability of a rope system.
Technicians are less restricted in their movement, allowing them to reach those more challenging spots where other equipment struggles to reach. Simply put, it makes all kinds of building maintenance tasks quicker and more efficient.
For example, because only rope and harness systems are attached to the building, less time is wasted setting up for maintenance. Compared to scaffolding and other systems, rope access takes a fraction of the time to get set up, meaing less downtime and minimal disruptions.
Window cleaning is one often most common uses of rope access systems. Cleaners can reach virtually any window on a building using this system. Ladders, scaffolding, and platforms are limited in their reach, meaning rope access cleaning is often the most efficient for window maintenance.
The same benefits apply to other building maintenance tasks. For instance, rope access painting offers unlimited access to the entire building exterior, allowing for a complete paintjob where no spots are missed because they are hard to reach.
Similarly, building surveys and inspections can quickly be conducted using this system. Given that inspections often involved just a few people, it makes sense to use a more streamlined system such as rope access.
Plus, rope access is a proven system. It has been used for building maintenance for decades, with all the procedures being incredibly safe – often safer than other high level cleaning systems!

    Buildings, no matter how smartly constructed are vulnerable to weathering and decay over time. As we continue to build higher and higher, the requirements to access tall structures become gradually more complex. Simple tasks such as regular maintenance and more in-depth condition knowledge become limited, leading to failures.

    Every project has its unique access plan and building working specifications. From listed buildings through to contemporary or commercial buildings – we use the latest technology, modern rope access methods, industrial abseiling solutions, traditional skills and craftsmanship, to stabilise, clean, repair, fix, respray and restore your building fabric.

    We provide a wide variety of working at height inspection, repairs and maintenance tasks for clients throughout the UK, developing site-specific solutions. From stone, brick, or concrete repairs to stabilising weak chimneys, removing loose signage or materials from buildings, undertaking high-level leak investigations, condition surveys, repairs and much more. We have a wealth of experience in assessing, testing and delivering the most complex building cleaning and restoration requirements. Our expertise with high access maintenance solutions can be gauged with our work on Deansgate Square, the impressive residential complex in Manchester.

    In addition to rope access methods, temporary cradle, MEWPS, and scaffold form part of our access strategy to provide you with safer, faster and more effective solutions to effectively repair and maintain your building.
