Lifts - what's happened and what's happening.

Lots of energy has been spent of getting the lifts in good working order. They were both actually functioning quite well until a resent flood on the 4th floor caused water damage to the B lift and taking it out of service. We're working on getting it repaired ASAP. We've also requested that some of the faulty buttons on both lifts are also being repaired.

It can easily happen that flooding on any of the floors damage the lifts in future. If you see any flooding on a floor, please report it to security ASAP so that they can park the lifts up at the 16th floor, out of harm's way, until the flooding has been fixed ad the floors dried.

The reason for the flooding this time was severe damage to the roof that covers the bottom of the fire escape stairs. It looks as if something heavy was dropped onto the roof, breaking an opening through which drainage water from the roof of the building entered the stairwell and flooded the 4th floor and the B lift shaft.

If you see anyone doing things that could damage the building like this, please report it to security immediately. If damage to the building can be avoided, it would save the thousands in repair costs, make more money available to get renovations completed sooner, and help avoid high levies.
