Case study 5
Air sealing using industrial rope access
Galaxy Buildings, Brussels, Belgium
The brief was as follows:
- Air-seal 16 internal ducts, throughout full depth of 28 storeys
- Pressure tested successfully on contract completion without one failure
Client asked us to repair his external banners during the contract.
Options: Rope Access
Air leakage is the unintended infiltration of air through the building envelope. We were asked to complete this air duct sealing process on the new-build twin towers of North and South Galaxy. Each duct was approximately 2.5m by 1m, and 130m deep - thus giving a particular access problem.
Client extremely happy with the task - for which there was no other solution but rope access.
