Key Elevator Information for NYC Property Managers and Building Owners to know.
Vertical Systems Analysis has created this key information blog for property owners and property managers to help ensure that their elevators and escalators are performing well throughout 2023 and for many years to come. Property owners and managers realize that when elevators go down it inconveniences all the people that frequent that building. For this reason, keeping elevator downtime to a minimum is always the goal of every building owner and manager.
The people most affected by an elevator that is not working often have limited knowledge of how their vertical transportation is maintained and managed. Elevator and escalator equipment is mechanically very complex and the components are highly specialized. Vertical Systems Analysis has put together this checklist as a way of empowering building managers and other stakeholders with key information for 2023 and for many years to come.
Here is the Vertical Systems Analysis checklist for building owners and managers.
1. Keep Your Elevator and Escalator Service Records.
This may seem obvious, but many people don’t keep meticulous records. These are very helpful to any company that is servicing or evaluating your elevator or escalator equipment. Another good reason to keep good records is that you may be already paying for services you aren’t receiving. Be sure you always have these up to date too.
2. Be Sure to Track Your Elevator Performance Against Industry Standards.
Your local Department of Buildings will likely have these. Be sure to understand how to know whether the elevator performance is within industry standards. Some ways to track performance is through downtimes and usage.
3. Be sure to stay on top of safety code requirements to avoid costly fees.
You can always check local code requirements through DOB. Also Vertical Systems Analysis is always up to date with code requirements, so our team can help you too.
4. Study your equipment and be sure to try and have a working knowledge of the escalator and elevator equipment within your building.
This key understanding will also help you with all of the other tips. And, if there is something you don’t understand, just ask.
