High-Rise Building Condominium Management Challenges and Solutions
Managing a condominium in a high-rise building poses a lot of challenges compared with any other condominium community management elsewhere. There are specific needs that work for a highrise building which may not be considered important for a normal community, and such bring out unique challenges that a HOA management needs to really consider.
Fire safety is a major security concern in high-rise buildings. The HOA management in charge of the condominiums should ensure there are working fire equipments and evacuation routes from the highest floors because they are most likely cannot be accessed fast by a fire brigade in case something was to spark fire up there. It’s also a good damage control step because upper floors can quickly damage the whole building if nothing is done fast.
In a high-rise building, elevators come in handy and are of service to a lot of people. If something like this was to malfunction, inconveniences are likely to happen. The HOA management should work to have someone who is just a phone call away and can do a quick fix if need arises to avoid creating discomfort to homeowners in the building.
Security concerns are also another challenge due to the number of residents coming in and out of the building. It may be hard for the HOA to control these movements, and so creating additional precautions other than security at the entrance such as security cameras all throughout the building. This will give residents peace of mind knowing their possessions and homes are safely secured if anything was to happen.
