Facade survey by abseiling can save time and money

Industrial rope access facade surveys can be a great alternative to engaging an engineer to visually inspect the facade of a structure using EWP, scaffolding or swinging stages.

Some engineers have in fact taken to abseiling to facilitate easy facade inspections, however they tend to still charge very high rates for these services. For basic facade inspections to isolate items such as concrete repair, it can be very cost effective and also efficient to engage abseil building maintenance personnel to descend the facade of the building and provide a report on any issues of concern.

Picking a company who also does the type of repair work that they are assessing is always a good idea as this will cut down on overall costs at the end of the project and means that the people who surveyed the building are familiar with the scope of works to be undertaken.
