Maintaining Below Ground Infrastructure

July 2017

When it comes to high-rise building condo maintenance, most of the attention is given to common areas and amenities.

All high-rise buildings have an underground portion of the building.  This space is most likely a parking area but other building features may also be housed in the space.

Much like the foundation of a house, this underground space is the foundation on which a high-rise condo building sits.  Maintaining the integrity of this space is an important part of overall condo maintenance.

The British Columbia Housing Homeowner Protection Office has created a video explaining how to protect this space from damage.  This is part of their series to help those responsible for the maintenance of multi-residential properties.
