The design of a modern Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) is the focal point of the Exterior Building (EBM) System for this tower. A 97' telescoping boom positions a suspended work platform on any point of the buildings facade to provide access for window cleaning and building maintenance. The BMU runs along a structural steel track system that is centrally locations along the building longitudinal axis. The luffing and slewing and elevating mast functions allow the BMU to be stored out of the line of sight.
