HBuilding Maintenance and Window Cleaning

Client:Lombard Wharf
Industry:Real Estate Services


Lombard Wharf Tower, a prominent 28-story building in the heart of London's, faced significant challenges in maintaining its exterior facade and windows. Traditional scaffolding methods were not only costly but also disruptive to the building's operations and the surrounding busy city streets. The client required a solution that minimized disruption, adhered to strict safety standards, and was cost-effective.


CCS Rope Access Ltd was approached to provide a comprehensive exterior maintenance solution utilizing advanced rope access techniques. The project was divided into three main phases: Initial Inspection and Assessment: A team of IRATA-certified technicians conducted a thorough inspection of the building's facade to assess the condition and identify areas requiring immediate attention. Using lightweight and flexible rope access equipment, the team was able to quickly and safely navigate the building's exterior, significantly reducing the setup time compared to traditional scaffolding. High-Rise Window Cleaning: Utilizing eco-friendly and efficient cleaning solutions, the rope access team performed a comprehensive cleaning of all exterior windows. This not only improved the building's aesthetic appeal but also enhanced natural light penetration, contributing to a better indoor environment for occupants. The flexibility of rope access allowed for minimal disruption to the building's operations,

Facade Maintenance and Repairs:

Minor repairs and maintenance tasks identified during the initial assessment were addressed, including sealing cracks, replacing damaged panels, and ensuring the integrity of the building's exterior. The team employed rope access techniques to perform these tasks efficiently, avoiding the need for extensive scaffolding and reducing the overall project cost.
