Tall buildings cleaning using façade gommage®
MetLife Inc. was designed in International style and remains one of the 100 tallest buildings in the United States. The world’s largest commercial office space by square footage at its opening, it remains one of the 100 tallest buildings in the United States.
As it is too high and simply unreachable from a boom, an extraction cabin was purpose-built by Thomann-Hanry® and could be seen in-situ where it had minimal impact on the appearance of the building.
With new buildings only getting taller and taller and so there will be more call for working this way. Thomann-Hanry® Surveying and Engineering departments can design structures and machines to tackle any challenge for tall buildings cleaning.
