Elevators, Window Washing & Fire Alarm Panel
Posted By rfigley on July 22, 2019
I am pleased to report that it has been a productive week, and things are falling into place for upcoming projects. I am sure that you will be interested in the three projects below.
After some back and forth with the City, we have been approved to close Fifth Avenue and erect a crane on Saturday, August 10th.
With that said, the service elevators in both towers will be taken out of service on Thursday, August 1st through Friday, November 1st, for modernization. During this time, only the residential elevators will be working. The elevators will be padded the entire time to protect the finishes inside as contractors are going to be allowed to use these elevators. For more information on elevator access procedures, please refer to the attached memo that was sent last month.
This week, we received our inspection certificate and clearance to window wash.
The window washing company’s earliest availability and the dates that we will be cleaning are August 12th through August 24th.
Fire Alarm Panel
We have to replace our fire panel sooner than expected as many of the parts were discontinued for this system. The Board approved a contract, and a permit is being pulled from the City.
We are expecting to replace this panel during the month of August. It will take several weeks and will require additional testing of the annunciators in your unit and the common areas once the panel is installed. Thankfully, the field devices (the devices in your unit) are compatible with the new system. This saved us a significant amount of money on the replacement.
If I can answer any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.
All my best,
