Complex travel plans, machinery painting and even bird netting removal made this job for Brother in Wales a unique, but successful, project for our Cladding Coatings team.
Every project and every property is different, and needs an expert touch and experienced eye to deliver the façade finishes that are right for you. Yet our team faced challenges new even to us with one of our recent large projects in Wales.
Managing travel challenges
In October 2020, our team began work on an external building wall and roof repair and refurbishment project for a new client, Brother Industries UK LTD. The site was in Wrexham, North Wales – and just as we began the work Wales entered a nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.
Our team usually find accommodation near your site to make our timescales as smooth and swift as possible. Yet we knew our client’s project management budgets and our exceptionally high delivery standards would not be compromised by restrictions. So our team travelled back and forth each day, around four hours of daily travel, to meet the client’s timeframes.
Removal of bird netting
Our team had attended the site to provide an onsite survey, and delivered a fast quotation for the client on the same day. In the quote, we included specific information that we were able to gather in detail having visited the site in person. This included costs to chop down bird netting that was in place in front of the façade, so we could access the cladding and repaint the steel columns, and reinstate the netting when our work was complete.
The removal of the netting was essential for us to recoat the cladding as part of our onsite spraying work. However, our conscientious approach and duty of client care means we always consider every eventuality. So we informed the client that we could not guarantee the bird netting would be suitable to reinstall once removed. Therefore, we recommended an allowance from pest control to reinstall the netting and repair where necessary. Never leaving any part of our work unfinished, we instructed a firm to reassemble new netting once the cladding coating was complete – taking care of everything for our client.
Painting external machinery
The cladding was recoated with an onsite spraying application of a tried and trusted paint system: Rust-Oleum Noxyde®. This system, backed by a ten-year guarantee, was installed to the external wall cladding across the large façade.
Yet it wasn’t only the façade we repainted. Unlike our usual cladding clean and spray work, we painted the exterior machinery too. This is a slightly different way of working for us, but it was right for our client, so we readily adjusted our work to meet their needs. The result was an impressive finish, with the refreshed external machinery helping the full building come back to life.
We’re never afraid of a challenge here at Cladding Coatings, and we’re delighted we were able to adjust processes and adapt our offering to meet our client’s needs.
