The reports are available for downloading from the web site (see below) and are available for examination at Blackwell Management during office hours. There are two reports: a Conditions Assessment Report [PDF] and an Elevator Evaluation Report [PDF] dedicated exclusively to the elevators. Thornton Tomasetti recommended that we conduct a more detailed electrical study to assess the power usage of our building as compared to the current electrical capacity given the nature of the building and its construction. However, this is best done at a time of peak demand and we will consider asking that be done in August.
