to clean and maintain the faades is by means of MEWP. The proposed MEWPs will be required to deploy on
surrounding roads and walkways in order to access areas of the faades when deployed in the working position.
The point loads of the machines should be considered when designing the surrounding landscape.

In areas where this is not practicable due to traffic flow and surrounding landscape it is proposed that windows
are designed to be openable to allow cleaning and glass replacement to be carried out from inside the
apartments.

The spatial requirements for the setting out of the MEWPs have been co-ordinated in detail with the landscape
architect.

In addition to cleaning from inside the apartments a number of areas are proposed to be cleaned by alternative
methods to maintain a high quality finish. A number of terraces are to be provided and it is proposed that the
glazing will be cleaned by means of a rigid long handled squeegee with cleaners working from the floor level of
the terrace.

In order to provide access for cleaning to the proposed glazed balustrades which envelop the residential
balconies it is recommended that suitable cleaning tools with cranked heads, to mitigate the risks associated
with leaning over the balcony, are issued as part of a tenants pack. Residential balconies should only be utilised
for cleaning by the tenant unless a cleaning contractor is permitted access through the apartment, in which case
they should be accompanied by a concierge.

2.0 INTRODUCTION Physical contact with the building surfaces and associated wear and tear

This report evaluates the options for the proposed faade access and maintenance systems for the Earls Court The options proposed have been benchmarked against the following standards:
Village Development. The buildings have large areas of faade which are clad with glass and therefore require
safe and efficient faade access systems to ensure the appearance remains suitable for a prestigious residential BS 6037-1:2003 Permanently Installed Suspended Access Equipment
development. EN 1808 (1999) Safety Requirements on Suspended Access Equipment
BS 7985:2009 Code of practice for the use of rope access methods for industrial purposes
Although the primary objective of any solution is for access to the entire building, it is not the only objective that
is to be considered. Secondary objectives are also to be considered so as to achieve maximum benefit from any
solution. In total all these functions can be summarised as follows:

Routine cleaning of the building fabric externally.


Long term inspection & maintenance of the faade such as the replacement of cladding panels/glazing.

EC Health & Safety directives and legislation play a direct role in the manner and application of access systems
to buildings along with the CDM Regulations 2007. Under section 11 the regulations state that designers must
avoid foreseeable risks to the H&S of any person involved in the cleaning of windows. The designer shall
eliminate hazards which may give rise to risks; and reduce risks from any remaining hazard.

The strategy for selection of the systems should therefore be to find an economical solution that is easy to
operate and provides adequate access according to the HSE guidelines set out in information sheets MISC611,
MISC612.

HSE information sheet MISC611 Safety in window cleaning using suspended and powered access equipment
states that for every window cleaning job, the choice of access equipment will be determined by the height
negotiated, site conditions, duration and extent of work and frequency of access. Cradles and mobile platforms
are an ideal form of access for external window cleaning for many larger buildings.

HSE information sheet MISC612 Safety in window cleaning using rope access techniques clarifies that for all
work at height, the most intrinsically safe means of access should always be the first consideration. Other safer
methods of access, such as cleaning from inside, suspended access equipment (BMU) or mobile platforms are
preferred.

Based on the information published by the HSE it is our understanding that where practicable internal cleaning
access, temporary access equipment (MEWPs) and permanent suspended access equipment (BMU) should be
provided for the buildings of this development.

The design of any suspended access equipment is required to meet the safety regulations set out in BS EN
1808 1999+A1 2010.

Overall the facade access strategy options use strategies which are already tried and tested in the public
domain and minimise the risk to cleaning operatives in the maintenance of the facades.

Key considerations in the selection of the options have been;

Compliance with all legislation and codes or practice


Added value the system could deliver
Simplicity of operation
Minimising the cost of cleaning the faade
Environmentally acceptable both visually and in materials used and waste products generated
Having the ability to access and clean a wide range of building surfaces during a use

Other items which should be considered as the design progresses are:

Building and structural requirements


Life cycle costs

mobile platforms are an ideal form of access for external window cleaning for many larger buildings. The jib will be approximately 23,000mm long when fully extended and will be capable of slewing the cradle over

A number of elevations which envelop buildings WV04E and WV06A exceed the maximum reach capabilities of
the large reach MEWP recommended for site-wide access. It is therefore proposed that an ultra large reach
MEWP is utilised to allow operatives hand contact to the highest sections of facade.

It is likely that the proposed MEWPs will be required to deploy on surrounding roads and walkways in order to
access certain areas of the faade when in the working position. The point loads of the machines should be
considered when designing the surrounding landscape. Loadings and spatial requirements for each of the
proposed units have been provided within the appendix and co-ordinated with the landscape architect.

Specific elevations where MEWP access is not practicable due to traffic flow and surrounding landscape it is
proposed that windows are designed to be openable to allow cleaning and glass replacement to be carried out
from inside the apartments. Cleaning diagrams have been provided within this report to demonstrate the
recommended methods of access to open able windows/balconies.

In order to provide access for cleaning to the proposed glazed balustrades which envelop the residential
balconies it is recommended that suitable cleaning tools with cranked heads, to mitigate the risks associated
with leaning over the balcony, are issued as part of a tenants pack. Residential balconies should only be utilised
for cleaning by the tenant unless a cleaning contractor is permitted access through the apartment, in which case
they should be accompanied by a concierge.

It is proposed that access to clean the main elevations of the high-rise hotel and high-rise residential block
faades is by means of fully counterweighted building maintenance units (BMU) as described in section 3.1.

For each building cleaning access to glazing below 5m can be achieved effectively with long handled tools; this
will allow these publicly visible faades to be cleaned frequently and a high quality finish to be maintained.

The maximum radius of the counterweight swing will be 6800mm from the centre of the wheel base unit and It is proposed that access to the BMU is from the main stair core which rises to roof level. The currently proposed
suitable clearance should be provided to avoid clashes with the structure and surrounding plant. parapets and plant screens provide adequate passive height safety whilst persons prepare the equipment for
use.

3.1.4 Flues

Limit stops will be fitted to the BMU to ensure the jib does not pass over the boiler flues where there is a risk of a
stream of hot gas.

3.1.5 Budget Dead Load

The BMU proposed for the scheme will be bespoke and the load and distribution of weight is subject to detailed
design.

We have referenced a number of example building maintenance units, from each of our preferred suppliers, with
specifications similar to those proposed for the high-rise buildings in order to develop a realistic set of
assumptions.

The total weight of the BMU will be in the region of 57 tonnes however this load is approximate and may vary
dependant on the appointed contractor.

3.1.6 Power

A weather proof IP65 3PH/N/PE ~50Hz 400/230V isolator and RCD protected supply is to be provided by the
electrical contractor to a connection box adjacent to the parking position of each BMU. All connections from this
point are by the permanent faade access supplier. The mains power required is a maximum of 10kVa.

safest method of escape. There are only two safe methods of escape, return to the roof or descend to Ground
Floor Level. We would propose a detail similar to that shown below,

If the fire is on another elevation to the suspended cradle position, the operatives should if practicable, return to
the roof and descend from there. The operatives should climb out of the cradle when it has landed on the roof, in
the parked position, switch the isolator off on the cradle and evacuate the building via a suitable stair and route.

If the fire is on the elevation where they are located, the method of evacuation is dependent upon the time to
evacuate. If the fire is below them, we would recommend they ascend to the roof. If the fire is above them then
provided they can safely pass to one side of the fire, they should preferably ascend. This decision is based on
the vertical and horizontal distances, bearing in mind the time taken to raise the suspended cradle and the
distance the fire may spread.

If the cradle must descend, then the cradle will lower until it reaches the lowest point of travel, which may be a
canopy. If the operatives cannot leave the cradle to a place of safety they should remain in the cradle until
rescued.

Due to planning constraints there are limits to the cradle lowering to the ground in public areas. If the cradle is to Image 7 - Typical Faade Restraint Pin

Revision P1

3.1.8 Building Maintenance

During design development due consideration has been made to the repair and / or replacement of the faade
panels and M&E equipment. Whilst this is likely to be carried out on an infrequent basis, the principles have
been considered.

It is recommended that the replacement glazing is carried out from a glass replacement unit (GRU) fitted to the
BMUs which shall be rated suitably to lift the heaviest glass panel.

Due to the fact that the maximum panel weights have not been provided at the time of writing this report we have
based the weights on the assumption that the safe working load (SWL) will be in the region of 300kg. If the
maximum panel and ancillary lifting equipment exceeds this value and the SWL is required to increase the BMU
design will have to be developed to accommodate the additional loads. This is likely to increase the dead load of
the unit as provided in section 3.1.5.

3.2 MOBILE ELEVATED WORK PLATFORM

A large reach mobile elevated work platform capable of accessing the majority of the external elevations is a Leo
36T from Teupen which will access 36m in height at 13.9 m outreach and is able to work from a slope of up to
30%. This unit has a crawler base to cross landscaped areas and 4 outriggers (the load per outrigger is 35kN).
To spread the loads spreader plates can be used on each of the outriggers.

The point loads of the machines, which can be found in the appendix at the rear of this report, should be
considered when designing the surrounding landscape. Co-ordination will also be required with the architect
regarding landscape arrangements to ensure sufficient access is permitted adjacent to the facades.

Image 9 illustrates the dimensions of the proposed MEWP in the travelling and working positions. In order to
access the highest elevation (BW07 B) at approximately 35,000mm the MEWP is required to be positioned a
minimum of 7,500mm or a maximum of 9,000mm from the faade. When accessing lower elevations the unit
can be positioned closer to the faade and can operate at angles which will minimize disruption to surrounding
roads etc.

Mobile Platform Technical Data:


Reach = 36,000 mm
Safe Working Load = 200 Kg
Gross Vehicle Weight = 4,850 Kg
Live Load in Working Position = 2.4 kN/m
Max Outrigger Clear Area (W) = 5,500 mm

For further details on the proposed large reach MEWP please refer to the data sheet provided within the
appendix.

The spatial requirements for the setting out of the MEWPs have been co-ordinated in detail with the landscape
architect.

A small proportion of the facades exceed the maximum reach capabilities of the Leo36T. Although it is not
recommended to provide cleaning access from a unit with a reach exceeding 36m an ultra large reach MEWP
such as the Leo50T could be considered to access these elevations. Due to the increased reach the units can
operate from fewer working positions however it should be noted that controlling movement of the jib arm from
the basket can be extremely difficult and disorientating from such a height. This could potentially result in
clashes with the faade and ancillary services.

For further details on the proposed ultra large reach MEWP please refer to the data sheet provided within the
appendix.

3.2.1 Cleaning Time Analysis

The cleaning times provided are preliminary and based upon access to the glazed elements of faade by means
of the faade access equipment noted within this report. The cleaning times proposed are based on continuous
operation of a unit.

The calculation below has been provided for a sample section of faade 32m (L) x 28m (H) using a mobile
elevated work platform.

Not allowing for inclement weather it is proposed that the sample section of glazing can be cleaned in
approximately 1 day.

These times may be extended based upon the frequency and cleaning method used for the various faades.
The recommended setup times provided by permanent faade access contractor will also vary.
