Celebrated as an industry leader in the provision of premium facade access solutions, CoxGomyl is called upon time and time again to develop building maintenance systems for mega-tall skyscrapers around the world. Renowned for overcoming previously insurmountable challenges presented by height and building structures, CoxGomyl develops innovative building maintenance solutions that are designed to provide seamless access across the facades of the world’s tallest and most complex buildings.
Towering over Dubai at 828 metres, the Burj Khalifa has held the title of the world’s tallest building since its completion in 2010. The unique design of the mega-tall skyscraper features a ‘tri-petal’ flower shape as a nod to Islamic tradition and required no less than 18 strategically placed building maintenance units to provide access to the entirety of the 162-storey landmark structure.
Chow Tai Fook Financial Centre serves as a focal point for the city of Tianjin, China, with a tapering form thanks to eight sloping mega columns and stacked floor plates of progressively smaller sizes as the tower rises towards roof level. A total of 5 CoxGomyl building maintenance units maintain the 530-metre tower with four and five-stage telescopic jibs designed to provide provision facade access across the tower.
CTF Guangzhou, China
Featuring a range of sky terraces, the CTF Guangzhou in China boasts a striking angular structure designed to stand out against the city’s skyline. Standing at 530 metres, the tower achieves mega-tall status and is maintained by a multi-unit building maintenance system designed by CoxGomyl.
Standing at an impressive 528-metres, the super-tall CITIC Tower in Beijing features a dramatic architectural form that is maintained by five roof-level BMUs and a further four units at level 73 of the building which all feature telescopic jibs to manoeuvre the curved facade of the tower.
A system of 20 CoxGomyl building maintenance units provides access across the facade of the Shanghai World Financial Centre for regular cleaning cycles. To preserve the aesthetic integrity of the building, the system is designed to retract into parking garages when not in use, preserving the visual impact of the structure. The highly specialised system utilises fixed-length jibs and multistage knuckle jibs, which offer the functionality of launching the cradle out from limited spaces to provide 100% facade access.
