Specialized
‘Highlevel Access’ Cleaning
& Complex Project Management

Burj Khalifa

The Challenge:
In ‘High-level Access’ cleaning, anything over the height of 200m can present its own set of logistical challenges. In this case, the world’s tallest tower, standing at 828 meters above ground also posed new level of weather challenges in addition to restrictions due to it being a working construction site The Burj’s BMUs could not handle this mammoth task, and rope access hooks could not be used due to the fact it was still under construction

Client Requirements:
The specific requirements of the Burj were:

  • To clean the structure twice; the first time, complete wash down of the tower and the second time, a deep cleaning from top to bottom
  • An alternative to BMU access would have to be provided as a solution to facilitate for a deep cleaning routine.
  • There was an emphasis on proficient project management and coordination with other building contractors to ensure non-conflicting scheduling.
  • The main perquisite after meeting all of the above requirements was to adhere to the strict standards set by both Emaar’s H&S department and other contractors working onsite.

The Solution:
Our solution consisted of utilizing specialized rope access equipment specific for building sites, operated by highly skilled IRATA* trained personnel, coupled with access machines thereby achieving complete and thorough access of the 828 meter high façade.

High-pressure washing and other deep cleaning methods to clean the tough post construction residue and debris were also employed.

Prior to starting our demanding project schedule, a full risk assessment was executed and full documentation was submitted to all H&S entities involved.

The Result:
Thanks to our excellent project management and complex scheduling, comprehensive cleaning of Burj Khalifa was achieved with the utmost quality, within the time provided to us by the client. While all budgets, environmental and H&S objectives being met to our client’s satisfaction.
