The addresses of the houses where they plan to change the elevators in 2022–2023 are now marked on the interactive map of the capital’s Capital Repair Fund.

The website of the Fund for Capital Repair (FKR) appeared interactive map with a plan to replace elevators in the coming years. It contains the addresses of houses in which the elevator equipment will be 25 years old in 2022–2023. It is these lifts that are subject to replacement by overhaul standards.

“Since 2019, Moscow has new requirements for elevators. In addition to general safety issues, special attention is paid to the comfort of residents. So, for example, in houses where elevator shafts allow to increase the door openings, they are increased to 700 millimeters. Modern wear-resistant finishing materials are used for elevators. The walls of the cabin are covered with metal-reinforced plastic, and the floor is covered with corrugated aluminum. The new lifts are also fitted with brushed stainless steel control panels. Each panel is equipped with a built-in electronic scoreboard and steel buttons with circular illumination, ”said Ilya Baiduzhiy, Deputy Director General of the Moscow Capital Repair Fund.

The site has electronic service, issuing individual proposals for the replacement of elevators to the owners of apartment buildings, which are on the interactive map.

Citizens will be able to find out in advance about the prospects for upgrading elevator equipment in their homes, then vote on a specific proposal at general meetings at home, and then agree on the work.

The procedure is simple. First, find your address on the interactive map. Houses where they plan to replace equipment are marked with icons. You can also find your home by entering the address in the search bar of the map.

After making sure that the replacement of elevators is really planned in 2022-2023, you need to get an offer for your home through an electronic service. The address is also entered into the search bar there, and the user receives an offer form for the replacement of lifts.

Owners of housing in apartment buildings can, within three months from the date of publication of plans for the replacement of elevators (up to May 10, inclusive), hold meetings, vote and decide whether they support the replacement of lifts. Residents notify the management company about it. Meetings and voting are held in any format convenient for the owners. Including in electronic form using the platform “Electronic house”.

If the meeting and voting are not held and the residents do not present their decision, the house will remain on the list of the current plan of the Capital Repair Fund. Then the elevators will be replaced in the years indicated on the interactive map and electronic service.

In addition to the general interactive map on the FKR website, local interactive maps of individual districts have appeared on the official websites of the capital’s prefectures.

The tender procedures for finding contractors for the replacement of elevators start immediately after the signing of the minutes of the meeting of homeowners or the passage of the regulatory deadline after the placement of the proposal. The specific dates for the replacement of elevators in each house will be determined after the end of the auction and the signing of contracts.

More precise terms of work will be published on the portal “Our town”… Now here you can find out about the timing of the replacement of elevators in specific buildings in 2021.

Every house needs overhaul over time. This is the best way to keep a building in good condition. Gradually, the turn will reach everyone: according to the norms, major repairs in the house should take place every 25 years. This means that sooner or later this issue will affect the majority of residents of the capital.

IN long-term program of the City Capital Repair Fund includes all Moscow houses, with the exception of those that are recognized as emergency and are planned for demolition or reconstruction, as well as houses with less than three apartments. In addition, it does not include buildings included in the renovation program.
