New partnership aims to ‘revolutionise’ window cleaning in London

Skyline Robotics and Principle Cleaning Services have joined forces to bring autonomous window cleaning robots to London.

Principle, a market leader in providing corporate, commercial cleaning in London, will be the exclusive provider of Skyline Robotics’ flagship window cleaning robot ‘Ozmo’ and will start planning an operational rollout across the Capital, which will transform its window cleaning offering.

The partnership goes beyond window cleaning with the ultimate goal of delivering ESG monitoring to the building envelopes in London, to provide data, insights and analytics on a building’s facade health.

Ozmo combines artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision with advanced robotics and sensors. With Ozmo, window cleaning can be performed up to three times faster than humans, without putting workers at risk.

Additionally, as Ozmo is operated by humans, it is not replacing human window cleaners, but is accelerating a future where humans and robots work together. The result is a smarter, faster, safer, and more economical alternative to human window cleaners.

Michael Brown, CEO, Skyline Robotics commented: “Having demonstrated Ozmo’s value in New York City, we’re excited to expand operations and partner with Principle to bring our robots to London. London has more BMUs than the rest of Europe combined, making it a key global geographic location to showcase the impact automation can have to help achieve business growth.”

Tom Lloyd, CEO, Principle Cleaning Services said: “Principle is committed to investing in a future where humans and robots work collaboratively together. Through this partnership with Skyline Robotics, we’re securing all future capabilities to service customers for decades to come.

“Our clients always expect us to deliver new value and innovations to them as leading asset managers in our market. Our pillars are people, sustainability and innovation and with Ozmo, we feel we’re not just meeting but exceeding expectations.”

Skyline Robotics is the recipient of a 2023 RBR50 Robotics Innovation Award for its Ozmo robot. Additionally, the company has received a 2023 PropTech Breakthrough Award for Construction Robotics Solution of the Year and was named to the 2023 BuiltWorlds Robotics 50 List.
