Taking panes to get job done
Published 11/01/2014 | 02:30
It looked like a scene from a Hollywood movie.
A team of crack cleaners abseiled down the front of the National Convention Centre yesterday.
Their mission -- to wash the windows.
The landmark building in Dublin's docklands has 475 panels on its curved atrium, which takes the team up to four days to clean.
It's such a large job that it's only done twice a year.
The shining edifice was the world's first carbon-neutral constructed convention centre when it was completed in 2010.
