Client Details: Travelodge, Newport, DTZ Property Management
Project: K Rend and Render, Building Facade and Algae Removal
To clean the K Render of the building facade and remove all algae and black mould growth.
We carried out a fully property survey with the client management team and discussed the various options and approach to the job including the repairs rather than replacement of security grills, cladding and doors. APT implemented a detailed but flexible approach to operations to accommodate traffic and pedestrians.
We used APT’s Specialised, commercial Algae Free to treat the affected areas of the K Render facade. We used our Super Steam Heated equipment to agitate and wash off.
High pressure washers with special oscillating heads were used to strip off old coatings from the cladding. Our commercial painting team treated the steel cladding with anti-rust primers and painted.
We Soda Blasted the metal grills and treated with suitable primers and undercoat; it was then painted.
Make repairs to some exit doors and re-decorate.
Pathways were treated and high-pressure jet washers used to remove moss and algae.
Due to the specialist nature of the product used along with the equipment, all algae and mould growth were removed in a very short space of time, bringing the buildings appearance back to new.
APT were able to save DTZ thousands of pounds in being able to renovate rather than replace many of the surfaces.
“APT were engaged to carry out the removal of severe algae and moss staining to the Travel Lodge building in the centre of Newport City. They advised on several other areas and provided cost saving solutions. The team project planned and delivered exceptional results under our budget cost, will be using on other projects in the future and have no hesitation in recommending them.”
