About BASE Group
We run an amazingly diverse painting company that uses rope access as its primary method of access. We travel the country seeking out the iconic structures of each town in need or protection. We pride ourselves on continually pushing standards and going where no company would dare to go to protect the iconic structures of America.
In 2007 The BASE Group was founded by a full-time sponsored ice climber, Rich Purnell, when he realized he could make money hanging at the end of a rope painting the iconic structures of America. Rich started his fledgling business painting a few small buildings in Denver by himself. Little did he know that his skills would be requested across the nation within a few years. Today, the company paints iconic structures like State Capitol Buildings, Roller Coasters, and Stadiums from coast to coast.
Some 15 years later, not only have we worked coast to coast on unique projects, but we have won several awards from industry leaders. We are one of the few companies to specialize in painting projects that are seemingly inaccessible and difficult, places most contractors dare to go. Painting of the inconvenient, we proudly paint where no one else will work with commitment, assurance, and precision.
