The Board is aware of the ongoing performance issues with the building elevators. This and previous boards have been telegraphing for some time that our elevators are in need of an overhaul.
As reported at the recent AGM in May, an elevator consultant has been retained to help us assess how to move forward. Since then, the Board has met with the consultant and approved a bid document for the complete modernization of both elevators. The consultant is currently in the process of inviting a number of contractors to bid on the project.
Broadly speaking the earliest that such a project could get underway is next April or May 2018. There is a long lead time required for equipment orders and once the project begins it will take approximately six months to complete. So this will require a lot of patience on the part of all of us.
We will endeavor to keep everyone informed as progress is made. Current estimates suggest an overall project cost of approximately $500,000. The Board is considering a number of options as to the best way to fund the project assuming that we decide to proceed.
What do you do if the elevators are down?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and inform us of the issue you’re having. We are also residents of the building and are often aware of elevator issues. However, there are times when some (or all) of us are not in the building. The best method to ensure prompt attention is paid to a dysfunctional elevator is to simply let us know. If you email us, please specify which elevator is causing the problem and any other things you notice; that way we can coordinate next steps.
Thanks kindly for your patience as we deal with the existing elevators and move toward new ones in 2018,
The Huntsman Board
