Rope Access Surveys

Belfast NI; London, England; Dublin, Ireland
Claridges Hotel, London: This world famous hotel was suffering from a myriad of structural defects on its historic facade. Stronghold Preservation were requested to carry out a survey to assess the extent of the damage, and to provide a solution. Due to the spalling brickwork across the entire facade, the urban context, and the height of the building, it was decided that the most economical way to survey the building would be via rope access (abseiling). Dunluce Castle, Co. Antrim: The castle sits atop a sheer cliff, which falls away into the sea. As the cliff face was beginning to sheer and fracture, the castle was in danger of falling into the sea. Due to the position of the castle and cliff face, the only means of access was by rope access. All surveying and structural repair works was carried out by rope access. Jurys Hotel, Liverpool: The new stone clad facade on this modern hotel was delaminating and causing a risk to the public. Due to the height of the building, and the extent of the problem, the most economical method to survey the building was via rope access.
