Outdoor cleaning specialist spreads wings to help client, Aylesbury Vale District Council, track the birds’ progress
CAM Specialist Support is well-known throughout the UK cleaning and facilities management industries for providing its clients with services that require skills that are out of the ordinary, but its latest job for Aylesbury Vale District Council hits even greater heights – quite literally!
CAM has installed a very special ‘cam’ on the top of the County Hall building, where two peregrine falcons have decided to make their nest. Widely thought to be the world’s fastest animal, with claims that they can reach speeds of up to 240mph when diving and swooping for prey, they have been a fixture at the site in Aylesbury for the last three years.
CAM Specialist Support offers a wide range of cleaning and maintenance services including window cleaning – via platforms or abseiling, cladding and extractor cleaning, gutter and roof clearance, as well as the provision of energy reduction solutions. It drew upon its expertise in the maintenance of tall buildings for this latest project, which gives a new meaning to the phrase ‘bird’s eye view’.
Sean Canty, director of CAM Specialist Support, said: “Specialist high level access is just one of the highly technical services in which we specialise, and this helped us immensely when taking on this unusual but extremely satisfying project. The birds are currently brooding three eggs, which we hope will hatch successfully later in April. The CAM ‘cam’ will enable people from around the world to watch the footage online, something the team are incredibly proud of.”
