Refurbishment is crucial in extending the operational life of facade access systems. CoxGomyl’s refurbishment solutions offer a cost-effective alternative to replacing entire existing building maintenance units. They provide upgraded technical and safety features while minimising downtime. These solutions include a detailed inspection, evaluation report, and proposals to assist customers in making informed decisions.
CoxGomyl’s modernisation programmes also cater to a building’s evolving needs, offering options such as increased cradle capacity, glass handling, improved materials handling, and replacement alternatives when required. The project management team ensures a smooth execution without disrupting building operations.
Designing Facade Access Solutions to Safeguard the Building’s Architectural Integrity
CoxGomyl’s commitment to preserving the architectural aesthetic of iconic structures is evident in our innovative facade access solutions. As demonstrated in projects such as the Rockefeller Center in New York. Tasked with developing and implementing a modern facade access system for this historic building, our team meticulously addressed unique installation requirements within a tight timeframe, delivering a comprehensive solution.
The first building maintenance unit (BMU) on the eighth-floor terrace prioritised a compact design to fit within an existing garage structure during parking. The second BMU on the roof required careful planning for precise transportation through the building using existing elevators and an aluminium gantry, ensuring efficient installation.
Furthermore, CoxGomyl’s involvement in projects such as the Silver Tower in Frankfurt showcases our dedication to supporting the redevelopment and modernisation of historic structures while retaining the architecture’s aesthetic. The Silver Tower, built in 1978, underwent extensive restoration in 2009, during which CoxGomyl replaced the old facade access system with a new, modern building maintenance unit. Carefully designed to align with the client’s goal of preserving the floor-to-ceiling windows, the new system ensures the protection and longevity of the exterior facade.
