Subtitle: Developing and implementing a strategy

Ref Code: DG449/1
Authors: M Murray, S Pryke and T Yates

Abstract1: Cleaning the exterior masonry of buildings presents issues for owners, their advisors and contractors. This Digest describes these issues, often presented as risks because of the materials and methods used, and the conditions encountered. It is especially relevant to public and historic buildings. Part 1 outlines the approach that should be taken to managing cleaning projects; types of cleaning; choosing cleaning methods; specification and tendering criteria; research and trial cleaning; and analyses the cleaning of a building as a process.
