The following information must be provided to the Committee - plans (including scaled floor plans & location of condenser unit, pipe work, wiring, drainage, etc.), quote, timing and details of any drilling through common property (e.g. slab, roof, etc.). Roof's have special areas set aside specifically for condenser units. Similarly, some apartments have special condenser areas in the basement car park. Installation is only to be carried out by an approved installer. Electrical work must also be approved by the Committee to ensure safety procedures are carried out and electricity use is charged to the appropriate apartment.
No external pipework or wiring is to be visible on the external walls. Units must have rubber anti-vibration mountings to prevent structure borne noise. Adequate capacity of electricity supply lines / feeders must be validated by an authorised electrician. A copy of this validation must accompany the application. Any wall penetrations must be sealed so the building's integrity is not affected.
When owners arrange for a quote, please notify the Building Manager so our maintenance person can accompany the contractor. This will ensure the installation conforms to the OC requirements.
The written application, with all accompanying documents listed above, must be sent to the Owners Corporation Manager. Once approved by the Committee, the Owners Corporation Manager will notify you in writing, instructing you to proceed or to advise of suggested changes to the installation plan.

A member must not and must ensure that the occupier of a member's lot ("the Lot") does not and the occupier of a lot must not install or permit to be installed any air conditioning compressor or air conditioning unit on any balcony forming part of the lot or on any other part of the exterior of the lot.
