Project Spotlight: Canons Square Apartment Blocks Exterior Renovation

Location: Canons Square, Edgware Green Development, Stanmore/Edgware Borders

Challenges: Scaffolding Costs, Complex Renovation

Project Overview

The complete renovation and painting of the exterior of a series of apartment blocks located in Canons Square, within the Edgware Green development was one such undertaking. Our client approached us with a unique challenge: astronomical scaffolding costs were putting the project on hold, and they needed an alternative solution to kickstart the renovation.

Cost-Cutting Innovation

Upon initial assessment, we recognised the potential for a groundbreaking solution. By utilising IRATA-trained and qualified techniques, we delivered significant savings on the client's budget, slashing the total cost by more than 50%. This cost-effective approach allowed our client to proceed with the project and provided an opportunity for Contract Abseiling to showcase our expertise in unconventional renovation methods.

The Journey

The Canons Square exterior renovation was a multi-faceted endeavour, requiring meticulous planning and execution. Our team faced numerous challenges throughout the 20-week project. The comprehensive scope of work included:

  1. Preparation and Cleaning: Before applying a fresh coat of paint, we had to ensure that the apartment blocks were free from dirt, grime, and any previous paint defects. Thorough preparation and cleaning were essential for a long-lasting finish.
  2. Fungicidal Wash: Certain areas of the buildings were plagued by fungal growth, necessitating a specialised fungicidal wash. This critical step ensured that the renovated exteriors would remain clean and free from unsightly fungi.
  3. Painting: The final phase involved the application of high-quality exterior paint to rejuvenate the appearance of the apartment blocks. Our team of skilled technicians meticulously applied the paint, leaving the buildings looking brand new.

Client Satisfaction

Throughout the project, we maintained open communication with our client, addressing any concerns and accommodating additional requests. Our dedication to delivering exceptional results and our ability to adapt to evolving project requirements led to a delighted client who was thrilled with the outcome.

Contract Abseiling takes immense pride in overcoming challenges and finding innovative solutions. The successful completion of the Canons Square apartment blocks renovation demonstrates our commitment to quality, efficiency, and client satisfaction.
