In order to exclude cases of emergencies related to the operation of elevators in residential buildings that were built under the “Nurly Zher” program, JSC MO “Kazakhstan Mortgage Company” (hereinafter KMC) signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Association of Legal Entities "National Association of Elevator Managers of Kazakhstan" (hereinafter “NAEMK “).
Under this memorandum, KMC together with Representatives of NAEMK, conducted an unscheduled comprehensive inspection of elevator equipment in residential buildings that were built under the public housing program “Nurly Zher”. In total, there were more than 200 elevators inspected in 20 Kazakhstani cities.
The technical inspection revealed defects in the operation of certain elevators, which were shortly after eliminated. For defects’ elimination, KMC used their financial resources and mechanisms to eliminate the deficiencies under the contractors’ guarantee liabilities as well as by engaging responsible bodies of the operating companies.
Further work on the elevators operation is planned to be put onto a system basis. Under this Memorandum, NAEMK undertakes to provide information on companies which are included in the Association and correspond to the National Standard: “Elevators, escalators, travellators and lifts for the persons with disabilities. Requirements for delivery, installation and operation.”
Hereby, NAEMK ensures that Association members will provide services on proper installation of elevator equipment, ensure proper maintenance of existing elevators, provide monitoring and regular reports on current equipment’s technical condition. In addition, as per memorandum, separate requirements will be provided for the maintenance of elevator equipment in KMC buildings.
Aisultan Akchurin, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of the JSC MO “Kazakhstan Mortgage Company”: “According to the “Nurly Zher” Program, KMC has introduced more than 1 million square meters of housing, which amounts to 326 residential buildings throughout Kazakhstan. More than 50 thousand people live in these residential buildings and our main task is to provide careful and competent maintenance of engineering equipment to ensure a comfortable and safe living for the tenants. We hope that our signed Memorandum will become an incentive for the development of the elevator industry in our country and serve as an example for the implementation of elevator maintenance service standards”.
