World's First Facade Weathering App Goes Live

Share Article

Building Transformation (based in the UK) has created a revolutionary new app which can help clients visualize the future for their building skin as part of the 21st Century Façades™ programme.

In a global first for façade weathering Building Transformation has used pioneering technological methods to demonstrate how façades decay, weather and decline.

Founding Partner Reece Wood said: “By embracing current technology we are now enabling clients to visualize the lifecycle changes of a building façade.

“Our app aligns both positive and negative façade decay and protection solutions over the predicted lifespan of the building, helping bring to life the true benefits that a façade restoration project could bring.

“Clients are now able to see, interact with and fully appreciate the future restored façade space. Our unique interactive visualisation app helps clients to significantly improve understanding and build confidence in the investments they are potentially making.”

The benefits include:

  • Façade decay is brought to life.
  • Align weathering, lifecycle costs and maintenance.
  • Visualize the future of your building.

Mr Wood added: “We understand that making property refurbishment decisions is difficult. People find it hard to truly appreciate and visualize how a restored façade can add real value to the building, occupants and surrounding environment. We’ve created a stunning, interactive digital model to help make property investment decisions easier.”

Building Transformation has spent 16 years building a specialized bank of solutions to solve problems related to external building fabric decay and building skin performance issues.

They have delivered their expertise to a wide range of landmark buildings around the UK and beyond.

Recent contracts include:

Solving a façade decay and coating failure at Exchange House in East London;

Delivery of a six-month restoration programme at Abbey Wood, an iconic estate of MoD buildings in Bristol;

Carrying out specialist façade cleaning test trials at Xscape Snow Dome in Milton Keynes;

Solving coating failure, UV damage and oxidation problems at Red Bull head office in Milton Keynes; and
