The Residents’ Buildings and Maintenance Committee

The Residents Association set up a Buildings committee from the first days of the complex opening. The committee works closely with First Port to ensure our buildings are well maintained.

The ‘Buildings Committee’ meets four times a year. Face to face with First Port regional and local managers.  A resident always chairs the meetings. Our aim is to ensure that our buildings, and all common areas, ( lobbies, stairwells, corridors, roof terraces, garages,  lifts etc) are kept in good order. The committee also considers the longer term upkeep of the buildings.

We get sight of First Port’s budget and their Asset Management Plan to help ensure proper measures are taken to buffer against future large item expenditures.

While First Port deal with day to day maintenance issues as they arise, the committee  maintains its own ‘Repair and Maintenance Log’ of items raised  by residents. We check on progress at each meeting. Any resident can attend this meeting or add an item to the Log.

The minutes of the last meeting are available in hard copy for  residents only.  They can be obtained from the Site Manager’s office in Gaumont Tower, during office hours. Ask the concierge desk for directions or contact Gerald Bernard the Site Manager directly if you want a copy.

 Future meetings and agendas will be advertised on this site. Next meeting is scheduled for June the 8th 10 am.

All residents are welcome to attend. Please contact First Port offices to express interest.
