Elevators were installed and put into operation at the west No. 4 building of Kuangda Community of Xueyuanlu Subdistrict of Haidian District in Beijing on September 10, as a special gift for the retired professors living in the building on the Teachers’ Day this year.

The Kuangda Community is a typical compound community under multiple ownership and most of its buildings have six floors without an elevator. The retired professors from the west No. 4 building came to the community’s neighborhood committee to tell their difficulty in going upstairs and downstairs and they appealed for installing elevators over the six or seven years.

Later, a self-financed elevator-installing pilot project was decided to be conducted at the building, which totally has 48 households of four units. In September, 2017, the neighborhood committee began to sign elevator-installing agreements with each of the households and hold frequent coordination meetings to solicit residents’ opinions. After many years of hard work, the project was officially launched in March, 2018.

It is learned that seven communities have conducted the elevator-installing work at multi-floor buildings to facilitate elders’ travel since the work was launched in the Xueyuanlu Subdistrict on May 24, 2017. The elevator-installing agreement has been signed at 114 units of buildings, including 90 in 2017 and 24 in 2018. Now pipeline relocation work of 66 elevators have been completed , main body installation work of 20 elevators have been completed, waiting to be inspected for trail operation, and building the main body of cages is in progress for another 11 elevators.
