Site: Merrill Lynch, Cheapside EC2

Contracted to mace Ref: Steve Burrows, Garrett Weir, Jim Trask.


External Works: Techcrete UK


Carry out all Natural stone repairs using various methods, each presented with method statements. Some operations include the use of electrical equipment, (cutting, spinning, drilling and power washers). All the above works undertaken are uniformed throughout every external elevation to a high finish. Some pre cast panels were clad with red bricks these needed the above alterations as well as brick replacements generally due to discolouration damage or problems incurred during the manufacturing process. As a result interest was taken to the re pointing of various panels to which a method statement covers each stage.

Atlantic House, Farringdon Road, EC2

Contracted to Skanska Ref/ Roman Kirbybuk, Lee Stacey & Asgar Chouglay

In coordination with Benwall Fixing Company Ref/ Sam, Ian, Chris & Steve


Curtain Walling installation, replacement and remedial work undertaken using specialist access. With a constant liaison with Skanska and Benwall we combined skills and experience to address and overcome various problems throughout the building. Relevant method statements prided by G.T. ROPE ACCESS Ltd supported all operations undertaken.


Using a team of abseil operatives equipped with two way radios and digital cameras we successfully carried out a process of de-glazing and glazing safely and efficiently without the use of a house cradle. With the use of a mobile cannon, seated on the house cradle track we attached a block and tackle, hooked onto a rechargeable power sucker, which enabled units to be raised and lowered, glazed or de-glazed. Banking and rope management skills ensured high and low level safety during all operations. This procedure enabled the glazing program to regain its target within a four-day period.


Various sealant modifications were introduced and installed throughout the building, such as glass-to-glass units, horizontal and vertical joints to be tooled flush, not recessed as fitted. Part of our remedial package was to cut out meters of sealant and conpreband, then reinstall as instructed. During all sealant operations, sheets of cordex protection were used on all stonework, low-level canopies, paving stones and terrace flagstones then disposed of. With combined efforts from Benwalls, Skanska, Mace, and G.T.ROPE ACCESS Ltd, Atlantic House is without any further weathering problems!

- Remove each high level ventilation grill and vacuum internal filter and visible grills uniform throughout atria.                                       

- Vacuum all steelwork and ledges accessible from the internal person ridersystem.

- On request commission all internal atria lighting systems.                                       

- In the case of an urgent requirement for abseil access GT Rope Access Limited will guarantee a same day response.

- Industrial rope haulage systems shall be created and installed to raise and lower materials and equipment when the abseil technician is in a working position.                           

Protection to all finished surfaces must be installed prior to project commencement and blue shoe covers to be worn at all times to prevent damage to painted surfaces.

GT shall supply all certifications and insurances on request.

Naracon Monorail Internal Trolley System

Using industrial rope access equipment and advanced rigging systems connect a GT operative to the internal perimeter person rider trolley rail.

Throughout the project a second GT operative shall police ground level if requested install cordons and signage.

Carryout a visual and textile examination to each bolted attachment point to perimeter person rider bracket plate system installed. With works carried out 2006 the continuity of the rider system fabrications has shown a noticeable reduction in deflection.

Each bracket has six bolted fixings, a total of 216 fixings were tested and 3 were tightened.

No deflection was visible and end stops were in good order.                           


Naraco External Box Ladder System

The low level buffer rail has been drilled and fixed on every horizontal providing continuity within the structure and will prevent any further distortion damage.

Three        external elevations on second, third and fourth floors.


Remove the adhesive label marks and dust clean 68 glazed window units. Install beige sealants to brick work and  grey to powder coated alloy window unit surrounds. Apply grey sealants to existing lead work, a total of 68 window units in three. External elevations.

To create access the minimum requirement for anchorage is a connection that can withstand a 6 kilo Newton direct load (BS 5485), hereafter this will be referred to as safe anchorage. Safe anchorage will be made by using the existing roof cradle tracks and certificated anchor bolts.

The working ropes will be connected to bomb proof rigging strops by means of a Karabiner with a minimum breaking load of 22Kn as per CE EN362/EN12275. Each pair of working ropes will have two points of safe anchorage.

The working ropes will comprise of low stretch 10.5 or 11mm diameter Kernmantle ropes in pairs and comply with CE EN1891 with a minimum safe working load of 270kg and a breaking load of 2700kg.                           

The abseilers will connect to the pair of working ropes through their harness by means of ascending or descending devices, complying with CE EN567, EN341. Once fully equipped they will step over the parapet wall edge, then abseil to the workface. The working ropes can be deviated by using material slings attached to the fitted roof hand rails creating precise work positioning. A central haulage system will be used to feed materials and equipment to the working technicians. The attendant ground operative will provide this service; he can operate this rope from the roof or ground.                                    

The supervisor will communicate with the abseilers via two way radios.                           

If there are structural members or jagged edges these will be protected using rope protecting sleeves, reducing the damage to the ropes.

If necessary additional anchorage points will be required, this will be achieved by cables, slings or “cows tails” A cows tail being a short length of dynamic rope complying with CE EN9892 which will be attached to the harness at one end and in a karabiner at the other (Where attached to the anchor point).                  

A complete photographic data report can be provided on completion.
