“We engaged Orb Rope Access Ltd to undertake a thorough inspection, vegetation removal and repair some difficult to reach stonework & masonry features on the Conway Centre Building in Birkenhead. The building is grade 2 listed, with some ornate features around the roof parapet and front façade, so attention to detail for repairs was just as important to our client as the secure fixing methodology.

Orb successfully delivered both alongside full photographic and video capture of all repair areas to the delight of our client.

We have no hesitation in using them again or recommending to others. Keep up the great service guys.”
