Over time, the outside of buildings begins to deteriorate. This may happen as the materials age, or due to pollution, fire or water damage. We offer external refurbishment and facade refurbishment so you can keep your properties looking their best and safe for those who use them.
So, what is external refurbishment? It can take many forms. You may want any of the following things fixed: chimney stacks, gutters, roofs, pipes, fire escapes and external staircases, fences and maintenance to any plants growing on your building. As any building maintenance worker will tell you, all of these things need regular checks to make sure the building is safe.
Some people will want their buildings modernised, and others will want to uphold the building’s historic features. Refurbishment often includes adding or updating parts of a building: for example, someone owning a Tudor cottage might want to keep the thatched roof but add in modern gutters to keep the place dry and pleasant.
To completely modernise the outside of a building will require cooperation between refurbishers, builders, architects and owners. When this happens, buildings can gain all kinds of useful amenities such as accessible entrances for wheelchair users, or balconies for people looking to make the most of their space.
Most importantly, though, we need to keep buildings safe. Whether they’re for homes or businesses, buildings need to meet certain codes and have things like fire escapes and sturdy structures. External refurbishers may need to work with internal refurbishers to make sure that everything runs smoothly and safely for the benefit of all involved. Any damage or negligence could result in anything from lawsuits to loss of life. In less drastic cases, a lack of refurbishment may cause leaks and subsequent damage to the property through roofs with missing tiles or insufficient or broken gutters.
From Savills, JLL, Hilton Hotels, MOD Land Securities, City of Westminster or Manchester City Council, we have successfully worked across a broad range of property portfolios with care, attention and detail. From façade cleaning, repairs, recoating or replacement of failed materials, we can help building owners, managers and surveyors with practical solutions to restore their façade.
Modern buildings are constructed with a wide variety of materials that need specialist façade care, cleaning and maintenance. Each material needs a different solution to enhance its lifespan. Our sympathetic building restoration and refurbishment solutions are designed to restore weathered and decaying buildings with maximum sensitivity and integrity. Look at some of our latest façade restoration projects here.
By creating transparency from the outset, we help you understand the needs of your building and adjust the specifications to suit your budget. We can help you prioritise key actions, remove scaffolding with access innovation and create plans to fit your overall vision.
From paint removal and masonry repointing to façade repairs and redecoration, we specialise in sensitive façade cleaning, restoration, and protection solutions for tall and high-rise, challenging to access building façades. With each elevation receiving a customised treatment, we have tailored solutions for your building and budget with appropriate access solutions to suit your needs with scaffolding, cradle, rope access, and MEWPS.

Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site.

A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight. The Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work around dynamic operational issues completing the project within three weeks.
May & Co have worked with Building Transformation on a number of projects which have included external building cleaning and refurbishment. They provided a great service, supported by the high level of documentation from the initial quotation to books and industry-related guidance, all relevant to our project.
I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business. They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.
Building Transformation is always mindful of the environments they are working in and take the time to understand the restrictions of each site; whether they be physical or due to the client’s day to day activities. They are extremely proactive and ensure that any issues are flagged to a client immediately, and when doing so always make sure a solution is provided. I couldn’t recommend Building Transformation more highly.
I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far. Dave and the team have done a great job.
I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.
At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.
The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.
