Access and Egress 

“A move in the right direction“


Our nationwide team specialise in the maintenance, repair and refurbishment of commercial  buildings exterior fixtures and fittings. We also offer a wide variety of Rope Access and Technical Operations for commercial and private clients

Documented Work

Projects are documented photographically to visualise rectification works step by step so clients understand the project fully and any future servicing needs.

Business hours

Mon - Fri 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday CLOSED  


We are able to work outside the above hours by prior agreed appointment. 


As building designs increase in height and our towns and cities become busier and more populated, conventional fixed scaffolding and access methods have become very expensive and disruptive. 

These access methods require local authority permits, road closures and quite often lengthy pre-project planning. A high percentage of projects are now undertaken by rope access teams. Abseiling has progressively become the preferred method to overcome the disruption and expense of utilising conventional access methods.

Within the Technical and Rescue sector Rope Access Technicians are in increasing demand. This is due to the older mountaineering/ climbing qualifications phasing out rescues completely. Also for insurance and liability reasons many production companies are favouring IRATA due to its impeccably high safety record.




Here at Access and Egress we pride ourselves on being as discreet as possible. Regardless if this is working for a 5 star hotel cleaning windows, carrying out maintenance work on the exterior of serviced apartments or for any commercial client. 

We aim to cause minimal disruption for daily operations and are often in, completed the works  and out without occupants or residents being effected. 

We also have a strict AccessNI policy in place should any client require work to be carried out on Government sites or Instillations. 


Unlike other trades we at Access and Egress will give you an accurate arrival time for the team on the day. We also aim to provide a daily update each evening on the work completed that day, if required.

Transparency is key for happy clients, we will be punctual each day and you’ll be the first to told of any challenges in the project that may extend our time onsite. Nobody wants to wait around all day!

With regards to the Technical and Rescue Operations a dedicated team will be placed on that specific job. This means if We are instrumental in the running for the rest of the day or for the job to go ahead you can be assured cover will be in place for the duration.

Matthew Warke

Paramedic and Team Technician  

Matt is our team Paramedic who has recently graduated from university/ WMAS. He has almost 5 years experience as a frontline healthcare professional working in a mixed area. Some shifts require him to deal with busy cities and other shifts will see him working in remote, rural or agricultural areas. 

Matthew also previously studied Marine Biology and graduated from Ulster University. This unique combination means he is no stranger to delivering care or operating in the outdoors, in challenging weather or on the water. Matthew holds a wide range of qualifications as he too has search and rescue experience of 10 years, powerboat qualification, and large open air event stewarding experience.

Matthew is currently working primarily as a Paramedic in a remote section of the Glens. So again naturally this means he performs well under pressure, with limited resources and often no additional backup.
