It Is Difficult To Unify The Elevators In The Old Community. The Cost Of Covering The Lighting And Escalating Is The Main Cause

Dec 26, 2018

Recently, an old district in Chengdu has been heated up by the news that the low-rise residents of the elevators are required to compensate 300,000 yuan, which has led to neighborhood discord. The installation of elevators in old residential areas is an effective way to improve the living conditions of residents in recent years. However, in the actual promotion process, there is often a phenomenon in which high-level households respond positively and low-level households oppose it. The original “convenience project” has become the direct cause of contradictions in some neighborhoods. How to let the high-rise tenants "benefit" while not letting the low-rise residents "annoyed", has become an important issue to be solved in the old community to install elevators.


The resistance of the old community to install elevators comes from low-rise residents. Many low-rise tenants bluntly said: "It is meaningless to install an elevator, not only to pay for it, but also to influence the lighting." Du Grandpa, who is over 80 years old, lives in Building 6 of the Wudianzi Community, Taipei Street, Wuhan City, Hubei Province. Going out to buy food on weekdays, Du can not go upstairs alone, can only wait for his son to help after work. Previously, due to the opposition of some residents in the community, the desire to install elevators has been difficult to achieve.


After understanding the concerns of low-rise households about the problem of lighting in the home, Du Grandpa negotiated with other residents to optimize the elevator design, and changed the original cement-made elevator shaft to glass material, and installed the elevator shaft separated from the residential building by 1.8 meters to avoid the impact. Low-rise households pass. In terms of expenses, the first-floor and second-tier residents of the community do not pay any money. The cost is divided by the three-tier or above households according to the different factors. The elevator does not stop at the second floor. The residents on other floors use the elevator card to take the elevator. After the communication and coordination between the neighborhoods, the frame structure of the elevator shaft installed in the machine swinging area has been basically completed.


In the China University of Mining and Technology (Beijing) community in Xueyuan Street, Haidian District, Beijing, the self-raised elevator project has also been built and used in the fourth floor of the community. “Because the installation of elevators is a self-raised project for residents, the process of promotion is also more difficult. The contradictions are concentrated on the allocation of installation costs and the lighting of low-rise residents.” Community Director Xu Hongwei said. According to reports, considering the structure of the house and the actual use of the residents, the exterior of the West Fourth Building will be equipped with a glass material, and each kitchen will be used as an elevator access passage, thus solving the problem of lighting for the low-rise residents. After soliciting the opinions of the residents, set up a ladder payment method, and increase the cost from the second floor to increase the reasonableness of the payment.


It is understood that many old residential buildings are equipped with elevators. The residents are self-issued. Apart from the relevant procedures, the design, purchase and installation of the elevators are complicated. Each link will be divided according to the different demands of the residents. The contradictions between the neighborhoods have also arisen.


In order to build a bridge for community communication, community workers have repeatedly visited the residents to understand the residents' demands and do their best to solve the residents' difficulties. Some residents go to work twice if they can't do it once, and twice when they don't, the community workers said. “The work of the community must be patient. We need to get the understanding of the first-floor residents, and we must strive for the participation of the second-tier households. Only in this way can we install elevators to really 'pass' in the hearts of low-level residents.”
