In 2013, Sky Rider completed the installation of window washing equipment at the Devon Energy Corporation Headquarters. Located in downtown Oklahoma City, the building is an iconic, 50-story, 1.8-million-square-foot office tower, comprising nearly 1.8 million square feet of office and amenity space. Devon Energy Corporation, the largest U.S.-based independent oil and natural gas producer.
The window washing at the complex required a full range of equipment from ground based to roof top mounted davits and sockets to specialized interior monorail systems. Most significant however, is the Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) permanently located in the center of the tower rooftop. Weighing in at 97,000 lbs. with a maximum outreach of 92 feet, the BMU allows service of the entire tower’s facade. The BMU features automated work position indication, digital control through conductors in the wire ropes and an auxiliary hoist. The auxiliary hoist operates from platform controls to assist in glass replacement.
