Noise Etiquette & Holiday Reminders

Posted November 23, 2012 at: 9:55 am

The Residential Section Executive Council would like to remind all owners and residents to always be mindful of others in the building by keeping noise to a minimum. Some feel that downtown living means having to deal with excess noise. However, Bylaws 1 (g) are very clear regarding noise within the building:

i) No noise shall be made at any time, which in the opinion of Management is a nuisance or unreasonably interferes with the use and enjoyment of any other Strata Lot.

ii) No stereo, radio, television or other sound reproducing equipment shall be used at a volume, which, in the opinion of Management, causes a disturbance or unreasonably interferes with the use and enjoyment of any other Strata Lot.

iii) No musical instrument, tool or other device shall be used which in the opinion of Management, causes a disturbance or interferes with the use and enjoyment of any other Strata Lot.

iv) Municipal bylaws covering noise, disturbances, and public nuisance shall apply to all Owners.

The Executive Council has a duty to ensure that residents adhere to the bylaws at all times. We take noise complaints very seriously and will not hesitate to levy fines against strata lots, if necessary.

Please respect your neighbours and the bylaws at all times during the day and night, and follow these tips:

  • Use the lobby for cell phone conversations, and greeting or saying goodbye to your guests. DO NOT use the hallways or elevator landings.
  • Lower the volume of your music & TV, especially if it can be heard in the hallway when your suite door is closed.
  • If you use a subwoofer, please elevate it off of the floor. Bass vibrations are carried easily between the walls and floors – especially in units with hard surface flooring.
  • If your unit has hard surface flooring, please use area rugs. If you don’t have area rugs, please wear soft-soled shoes or remove your footwear when inside your unit.
  • Do not allow your suite door to slam shut at any time.
  • Do not leave your suite door open to the hallway at any time.

Holiday gatherings, food smells & Christmas tree bylaw:

  • Please advise your neighbours of the date and approximate end time in advance of any parties. It is also a good idea to provide your contact information so that they can address any questions or concerns directly.
  • If your holiday cooking sets off the smoke detector, do not open the door to your suite door to vent the smoke to the hallway. That will set the building fire alarm off. The right things to do are turn off the stove, turn on a fan and open your windows.
  • Live and freshly cut Christmas trees are not permitted in the building or on any common property.

Please direct any questions or complaints to the Executive Council, via our property manager Ken Bro (kbro@colyvanpacific.com) or to the on-duty security desk (evenings & weekends).

Thank you and happy holidays!


Annual fire inspections & elevator upgrades

Posted October 30, 2012 at: 12:38 pm

Below is important information regarding upcoming mandatory annual fire inspections and planned upgrades to the residential elevators. Please read below and contact the On-Site Manager at 604.488.0048 with any questions.

Mandatory Annual Fire Inspections

Mountain Fire Protection Ltd. will be on site from November 5 to 9, and again on November 13 to conduct mandatory fire and safety inspections through all sections of the building. The British Columbia Fire Code requires that fire alarm systems be inspected and tested, including in-suite devices.
In-suite device testing will happen on November 6 and 7 between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Bells will ring intermittently throughout the inspection.

Notices will be delivered to each strata lot and will be posted. Please contact the On-Site Manager if you need to make arrangements for access to your unit. The Strata Corporation will not cover any missed in-suite inspections. Owners will be responsible to pay any expenses for missed testing in their unit.

Elevator motor generator/machinery upgrades

Contractors will begin planned upgrade work to the motor generators and machinery of all three residential elevators, starting on Monday, November 5. The work is expected to be completed by November 22.

One elevator at a time will be completely shut down for the work. The other two elevators will be operating normally.

Residents may experience a longer than usual wait for elevators, especially during peak usage times.

Thank you.
