Condition Assessments / Maintenance Audits

APEX provides condition assessments and reports that are designed to assess the current state of the elevators, identify any remedial work required, and determine if equipment needs replacement. During a condition assessment, our team will review all aspects of the elevator system. This includes but is not limited to the machine room equipment, hoist way and door equipment, operating fixtures, hoistway and pit.  Additionally, the APEX team will take the time to review the elevator with respect to code compliance.  APEX provides a report detailing our findings. Maintenance Audits are reports addressing the current state of your elevator assets that address the reliability and performance of your maintenace contractor and promote life expectancy of your elevator equipment. 

Depreciation Reports / Reserve Fund Study

APEX provides independent depreciation reports and/or reserve fund studies for Strata councils and Condominium boards. These customized reports provide an inventory of current elevator equipment in a report that will allow our customers to gain a comprehensive understanding of potential upgrades with recommendations ranging from zero to 25 years out. 

Reducing Elevator Shut Down Programs

We empathize with the frustration and inconvenience caused by recurrent elevator shutdowns with no resolution in sight. Cases with frequent shutdowns as a result of unusual, unexpected reasons can be difficult to diagnose. We are happy to take on the challenge to help restore elevator reliability for our clients. We do this though our pioneered “callback reduction strategy”. We would recommend and facilitate subsequent monthly conference calls or meetings with the Owner, Elevator Contractor, and Consultant for the next three (3) months to implement the callback reduction strategy. This would include: 

  • A review of the Callback history during the time between meetings.
  • A review of maintenance efforts and steps taken by the Elevator Contractor.
  • Discuss feasibility and cost of potential capital improvements that may improve reliability.
  • Revisit strategies as needed to restore reliability.
