    No.1 Deansgate, Manchester - Cradle/BMU Window Cleaning Case Study

    Here's how our Cradle/BMU window cleaning teams carry out window cleaning at No.1 Deansgate in Central Manchester.


    No.1 Deansgate is the name and location of a medium-rise apartment building in central Manchester, England. It is the tallest all-steel residential building in the United Kingdom, and one of the most exclusive addresses in Manchester. The building was completed in 2002, and is situated at the north end of Deansgate close to Manchester Cathedral. The 60 metre high building consists of 14 floors which provide 84 apartments, including 8 penthouses. The apartments are above a retail level, and are supported by raking steel tubular columns.

    Works Carried Out

    This building is cleaned via cradle window cleaning methods by our team of qualified cradle operatives. On average it takes our teams up to three weeks to complete a full external clean of the building.

    Issues faced on this particular project include factors such as, high footfall at ground level around the city centre retail outlets, this is managed by placing exclusion zones below the working areas. Another factor which needs to be considered are adverse weather conditions.
