Facade Access Solutions
Many facade access solution providers will be happy to offer you ‘off the peg’ machines. CoxGomyl are one of the few providers in the world who offer a comprehensive, end to end solution and have the staff and experience to provide design and engineering solutions, manufacturing, installation and ongoing maintenance. One provider, over the whole project and beyond, means an experience that is less complicated and stressful, more controlled and streamlined.
From the start of our relationship, we will appoint a technical representative and project manager to guide you through the project and ensure your needs are met. They will work with you on specifications, engineering calculations, building loads, machine positioning, track connections, and ancillary products in developing an estimate and tender for the optimal solution.
Your project engineer will have the expertise to help you tackle design and calculations, plan integration with the structure and comply with health and safety requirements
The higher the level of involvement of your CoxGomyl team early in the design and planning stage, the better the efficiency of the solution.
We employ the industry’s largest team of BMU design engineers, practiced in developing safe, functional, cost-effective facade access solutions for even the most complex builds. Collaborating with architects, consultants, builders and developers, the design engineers develop an integrated solution that delivers the desired access and cleaning cycles, whilst blending seamlessly into the building aesthetic.
The design process includes careful consideration of heights of the building structures, number and shape of facades, slopes and angles, atriums and balconies, facade materials and surfaces, cleaning cycles by zones, roof access, building loads, concealment of the BMUs, operational safety and cleaning productivity.
For the more complex solutions our cutting edge 3D design software allows you to integrate concepts into your building interface model and visualise the outcome. This allows modelling of all surface area access as well as the early identification of any integration issues. In most cases, we can show you or your stakeholders similar examples of previously installed BMU systems and videos to help demonstrate how the solution would work in practical terms.
When you are completely satisfied with the design, production of your facade access solution commences in our modern European manufacturing facility.
Your project manager will help you prepare for a smooth delivery process, including crane services, traffic management, liaising with site management and preparation of garages, track work and machine locations. Careful planning will make for an efficient delivery process with the right people on site at the right time.
Our specialist team of installers are all trained in CoxGomyl methods and processes, as well as fully inducted in the specific site safety program. Progress reports will be regularly delivered, with all machines fully tested before handover and operator training provided.
At CoxGomyl, we can provide a full range of maintenance services for the BMUs in all of our facade access solutions, to protect your investment in exterior care, for the life of your building.
