Victoria. In a large multi-use highrise the level 2 courtyard was designed with no regards to the evacuation route designed by fire engineers. Hard landscaping leaves nowhere except a tiny zig zag route for a single wheelchair.
Recently the OC installed a large concrete barbecue, tables and seats across the other evacuation path shown on plans done in 2011 and not updated.
This is a committee of 5 chosen by developer in 2014 who don’t provide notices of meetings and were originally elected by 210 empty storage cage votes.
An informal residents committee arranged Fire Services Victoria to report on the site but they are not eligible to see the report.
Are the OC allowed to block fire routes and what recourse do residents have, that doesnt cost them?
This evacuation route has never been tested and residents have never had drills. They don’t know about any exits other than the front foyer door.
This route takes residents to a staircase behind a gym on level 2 in the attached downstairs shopping mall.
The OC manages both the mall and residential tower. Although this is unconstitutional we can’t afford to dismiss them. So what else can we do to get our evacuation safety concerns taken seriously?
