Major project carried out with minimum fuss

OneFifty was contracted to carry out the external cleaning of a sizeable office building situated in Bristol’s busy business quarter Temple Quay.

The exterior surfaces included metal clad pillars, stone lintels, 6 separate corrugated roof areas and an outdoor top-floor terrace. We also cleaned the external pathways, entrance ramps, front steps and a large domed area of block paving outside the front entrance of the building.

We love a challenge!

This was a sizeable project; the building is six storeys high with a foot print of around 2,500 square metres. The location, height and structure of the building all presented different challenges – aside from a pretty tight deadline! 

We used tracked and truck-mounted cherry pickers to achieve the required height and a vertical out-reach of up to 32 metres, then rope access to get up close to some of the harder to reach surfaces of the building fa├žade. This combination allowed our operators to reach and clean every last inch of the building exterior, achieving fantastic results for our client. They also worked flat out over 14 consecutive days to complete the task within the required time frame.

Meeting all Health and Safety requirements

Health and safety is always critical in our line of work and it was of paramount importance on this project.

Temple Quay is a busy area and the building is surrounded by pedestrian walkways. Being experienced in working in public spaces our team can minimise any inconvenience to passers-by and our flexible working hours mean we can work out of hours to help reduce disruption.

OneFifty's experienced operators are IPAF and IRATA trained and we follow tried and tested procedures that support safe working. We also have all the necessary insurances in place - so that our clients can have complete peace of mind.

Reduce damage caused by dirt and algae  

Cleaning the building exterior not only makes the building look great, it also helps preserve the materials and the structure of the building, warding off costly repairs. Cladding can fail if not properly maintained, so regular cleaning is important. On this building some of the metal cladding had begun to oxidise so we used a special cleaning agent to remove the oxidation, then applied a wax covering to protect the surface and improve its appearance.

Being in the city centre (and near a train station) many of the external surfaces of the building had become badly stained by environmental pollution, others had been collonised by algae. We used pressurised steam at 150 degrees to remove these pollutants quickly and effectively. We also treated relevant surfaces with an algae inhibitor to discourage regrowth. While we had the access equipment in place we also arranged for the windows to be cleaned so that the whole building was left looking clean and shining like new.
