The penthouse apartment resident had a long-standing complaint about -damage on the curtain walling cappings and some staining on adjacent cladding. The resident agreed to vacate the apartment to allow for chemical cleaning, but only for 14-days, so repairs had to take place within a short time-frame.


Specialist facade contractor McMullen had installed the glazing throughout the development. Having previously engaged Renew Surface Repairs for surface restoration works on other projects, when the McMullen team became aware of the problem, they immediately recommended Re-new.


Jennifer Galea, St George customer service executive was glad of the personal recommendation. The residents at Battersea Reach have high standards and beautiful belongings, so Jennifer and her team wouldn’t allow just anyone to work within their buildings. With McMullen’s endorsement, Jennifer was happy to engage Renew Surface Repairs for this important project.




Bob Griffin, Renew’s managing director comments: “We worked closely with the McMullen and St George teams to ensure that our technicians maintained the property in a clean and tidy manner, so that minimal cleaning work was needed prior to handing the apartment back to the residents.”


“In line with the Health and Safety at Work act 1974 and the 2005 amendment Working at Height Regulation, RAMS were created to ensure safe practice was adhered to and our team was safe on the high balcony, whilst they re-sprayed the affected curtain wall glazing and cladding.”



Renew Surface Repairs completed all works within the time allocated and St George was delighted with the quality of the chemical cleaning and with the way the technicians conducted themselves on site.

Bob summarises: “We understand that the resident was very happy with the outcome. With our strong culture of customer care, attention to preparation and on-site supervision the Renew Surface Repairs team was delighted to deliver a high-quality job. All this at a fraction of the potential replacement costs.”
