With the accelerated aging of the population, the need to install elevators in some old buildings in the old city is becoming more and more urgent. In recent years, the Guangzhou Municipal Government has issued the "Trial Measures for the Installation of Elevators in Existing Residences in Guangzhou", which provides legal guidance for the installation of elevators in old buildings.
The reporter learned from Beijing Street that in the past two years, there have been many successful elevator installations in Beijing Street. Currently, 4 unit dormitory buildings have been successfully installed, and another 12 buildings have submitted applications for installation. The reporter combed and found that in the process of installing elevators, it was a crucial part that someone took the lead and the neighbors supported and cooperated with each other.
The process of installing an elevator
1 Before installing an elevator, you must first find a construction unit that performs infrastructure work, and at the same time find a qualified supervision company to supervise the project.
2. The owner needs to go to the sub-district urban management department for review and record. The urban management department reviews whether the project has qualifications and obtains the construction permit before starting the construction.
3 After the infrastructure work is completed, the elevator company can be selected so that the elevator can be installed.
4 After the elevator installation is completed, it is necessary to find the Quality and Technical Supervision Bureau for acceptance, and appoint a representative of the owner to receive training and obtain the qualification of a safety officer (the safety officer is responsible for publicizing the safe use of the elevator to the owner and keeping in touch with the elevator maintenance personnel) Get a lift license. After that, the elevator can be officially used.
key to success
It is very important for someone to lead the neighbors to cooperate
It is understood that in recent years, there have been 4 successful elevator installations in Beijing Street, all of which are unit dormitories, including the Municipal Justice Bureau dormitory at No. 87 Lianhuajing, the provincial court dormitory at No. 26 Cangbian Road, and Guangren Road. The dormitory of the Provincial Department of Education on the 10th and the dormitory of the Municipal Health Bureau on the 35th Cangbian Road.
The reporter learned from the Beijing Street Urban Management Section that in addition to the above-mentioned 4 successful installation cases, there are 12 applications for the installation of elevators within the jurisdiction of Beijing Street, most of which are private residences. In addition, there are six or seven cases that have the intention to install elevators, but they have not yet reported to the Municipal Planning Bureau.
The relevant person in charge of the Beijing Street Urban Management Section said that the unit was responsible for the leadership of the four successful cases, and it was easy for residents to reach a consensus, so the operation was simpler. Among the 12 cases that have been applied for, 5 cases have been submitted for construction but have not been approved by the Urban Planning Bureau, and 7 cases have been approved but have not been constructed. "The main reason is that the installation cost has not been collected yet, and the compensation standard for low-rise residents has not yet been determined." The person in charge said that some residential buildings have more tenants, and the owners are unwilling to invest in the construction of elevators, so it has become difficult to install elevators. .
In addition, although some owners have reached a consensus on the installation of elevators, they need to show the drawings of the additional elevators when submitting the plan for approval, which will cost a fortune. "It costs thousands of yuan to ask someone to draw a picture. When the plan has not yet been determined, some people are unwilling to pay the money." The person in charge said that if the installation of elevators can be put into practice, the support and cooperation of the neighbors are crucial. important.
Patiently persuade all owners to agree to install
Building No. 10, Guangren Road, which belongs to the Caitangqian Community, is one of the successful cases, but its installation process was not smooth sailing. Through the establishment of a working group, the residents successfully obtained the consent of all users to install elevators after 4 years of hard work, and completed the elevator installation process by themselves.
It is understood that this 9-storey building is the dormitory for the staff of the Provincial Department of Education. In 2007, the Department of Education planned a livelihood project and installed elevators for old buildings free of charge. At that time, in order to cooperate with the work of the Provincial Department of Education, the building owners elected seven representatives of the owners to form a working group. But by 2009, the owners were told that the cost of installing the elevator would have to be paid by the owner. Subsequently, 22 of the 24 households on the 2nd to 9th floors agreed to install elevators at their own expense, but one household on the second and third floors disagreed. "Although the policy says that elevators can be installed as long as two-thirds of the owners agree, but in fact, when applying to the Planning Bureau for approval and filling out the form, each owner's signature is required, and the property certificates and ID cards of all owners are provided, so it is still necessary to It can only be installed after the consent of all the owners." Some owners said.
Regarding the installation of elevators, the owner of a household on the second floor thought that he did not live here often and did not need an elevator; while the owner of the third floor felt that he was still young and could climb the stairs. After that, other owners began to persuade them patiently and meticulously for a year. Finally in 2010, all the owners reached a consensus and agreed to install the elevator. After completing all approval procedures, in August 2013, the elevator was finally successfully installed.
The adjacent building said "no" and the installation of an elevator was put on hold
Among the more than 10 cases where elevators have been installed, the seventh building at No. 375 Huifu West Road can be regarded as a rather special one.
The building was built in 1999, with 9 floors and a total of 16 households. It was originally a dormitory for the Guangzhou Municipal Engineering Maintenance Office, and was later converted into a private residence after housing renovation. Only the first floor was left for the office of the Municipal Engineering Maintenance Office.
Since there are many elderly people and children in the building, as early as 2008, some high-rise residents proposed the idea of adding elevators. Chen Bo, who lives on the 6th floor, told reporters that when he first proposed the idea of installing an elevator, he gave up because of the objection of a small number of owners. In 2010, with the unremitting efforts of high-rise residents, the owners unanimously approved the plan to install elevators. In April 2013, the Guangzhou Municipal Engineering Maintenance Office, the owner of the first floor, also submitted a written consent. Chen Bo and other owners' representatives even formed a six-member team to collect and sort out relevant materials and raise funds from the residents. In August 2013, the building officially submitted the installation application materials to the Yuexiu Branch of Guangzhou Urban and Rural Planning Bureau.
However, in September 2013, the Guangzhou Municipal Planning Bureau replied in writing that "the design plan will have a direct impact on the ventilation and lighting of the building in the north", and should obtain the written consent of the directly affected households before applying. The affected property mentioned here is No. 375 West Huifu Road, an office building owned by Guangzhou Municipal Industrial Co., Ltd. and managed by the municipal property company.
Subsequently, on the premise of ensuring that the elevator design complies with fire protection regulations, the building owner shortened the elevator walkway by 80 cm, and reduced the width of the elevator aisle to a minimum of 1.2 meters.
However, Guangzhou Municipal Municipal Group Co., Ltd., the superior management unit of Municipal Industrial Co., Ltd., still reported to the owner that "the design plan for the expansion of the elevator room in the building has a direct impact on our company's ventilation and lighting. Due to the issue of maintaining the value of state-owned assets, our company It is recommended to postpone the implementation." To this day, the installation of an elevator is still on hold.
