Rope Access Surveys | MGF Roofing Edinburgh

A building rope access survey is an important preliminary step to doing any kind of building repair work and when it’s done accurately, the cost is invaluable. Without a proper building survey. Many maintenance/surveying companies will erect scaffolding, an unnecessary cost, prior to the commencement of works resulting in increased cost for scaffolding hire and increasing the presence of construction works in the immediate area needed to gain access to particular areas. Industrial Rope Access creates minimal architectural impact and very little in terms of ongoing maintenance cost, with ease of fast return visits, much different to the burden of scaffolding. Rope Access means minimal disruption to building occupants, pedestrians and traffic flow.
