Façade Access Management

What We Do

D2E’s Façade Access Department offer a dynamic and knowledgeable approach to deliver safe and reliable solutions; solutions which endeavour to facilitate and exceed client needs and expectations.

By adopting an integrated approach from concept to completion we are able to offer innovative designs to accommodate the most complex building facades. Our services and advice take in to consideration the complete life cycle of the building and the effects the equipment has on all stakeholders.

Customer Satisfaction

The overriding principle applied at D2E to measure our performance on each project is Client satisfaction. Therefore, our first undertaking following our appointment for any Façade Access (FA) project is to understand both our Client and Shareholder’s needs.

Clients

  • Develop solutions which clean and maintain the building facades safely and efficiently whilst considering life cycle costs.
  • Develop bespoke solutions, concealed within the envelope to promote the building image and prestige to attract potential new tenants.
  • Advise on measures that can be implemented to ensure the equipment performs reliably over a long life span.

Design Team

  • Facilitate solutions that support the architectural aspirations of the building whilst minimising visual impact.
  • Lead early co-ordination to ensure the equipment and associated loadings are integrated in to the structure to avoid potential re-design during the latter stages of the project.
  • Facilities Managers, Operatives & Building Users
  • Promote strategies which aim to minimise disruption to the tenants and building users.
  • Facilitate schemes which can be accessed safely, are maintainable, and effective when in operation.
  • Design solutions which are not only safe for the building users and general public but also the operatives. This includes advice on rescue procedures and safe systems of work.

Our Services

D2E’s Façade Access Department offer consultancy services from concept, throughout the life cycle of the building. Together, our creative designers and knowledgeable field engineers provide the following services;

  • Performance based design strategies using the key RIBA design stages
  • Project Management for Modernisation/Refurbishment
  • Portfolio Management and Framework Agreement Contracts
  • Health & Safety Audits in line with EN1808/BS6037

Our industry experience and contacts also enable us to keep abreast of industry standards and benchmarks so that we can facilitate up-to-the-minute proposals and strategies.
