The challenge of washing window on a curved building at about 1,000 feet off the ground is quite the task.
But the job of keeping the exterior of Salesforce Tower clean is made possible with help from a pair of innovative tools.
“Well, when you get this tall in a building like this, you’re over 1,000 feet off the ground. It becomes very complicated,” said Daniel G. Murtagh, Vice President of Engineering with Boston Properties. “Even the simplest thing becomes very complicated.”
The simple thing Murtagh is talking about is cleaning 61 floors worth of windows on the massive tower. To do that, you need the right tool for the job.
