Access all areas - cleaning the Environmental Agency's roofs

We recently cleaned the roofs of the Environment Agency buildings in Exeter. The roofs are concrete-clad and over the years atmospheric pollution had built up on the corrugated surfaces leaving them covered in a thick layer of dirt. Because the pitch of the roof is quite low, the dirt was very evident so they had decided something needed to be done. 


The facilities managers in charge of building maintenance were struggling to find a contractor to do the work. The ones they had spoken to had all proposed erecting scaffolding to access the roofs, and then cleaning off staging boards. Health and safety regulations prohibited anyone stepping onto the roofs, so they were not keen on this method of access. When we proposed using cherry pickers to gain high level access they were really pleased as it solved their dilemma. Our approach also meant work could be completed more quickly and more cost efficiently.  


The cleaning was carried out over two consecutive weekends so as to not interfere with their weekday schedule, and the whole project ran really smoothly. The roofs now look as good as new, you can see from the pictures what a difference our cleaning made.

The facilities managers in charge of the property were impressed by our planning and organisation and the way that we managed the whole project from start to finish, so much so that they have invited us back to do more work!
