Innovation in Façade Access
Building owners and tenants have high performance expectations from ‘modern’ and iconic building envelopes but they must be kept clean and well maintained. Maintainability will be ongoing over the life of the building and one of the key aspects when detailing the façade and determines the budget attributed to the façade package.
Modern façade material requiring regular cleaning and maintenance to warrant performance entails working at height. Where the building surfaces and services are beyond the nominal reach; roof or ground based façade access strategy and / or techniques will be required to achieve safe and efficient cleaning.
Façade access is not limited to tall structures constructed of specific material for example glass, it is applicable to all kinds of building and structure. Cleaning and maintenance strategies determines the frequency at which access must be provided for periodic cleaning and long-term maintenance and the capacity of the access equipment resulting in determining permanently installed or temporary access equipment.
