In Covid Isolation? There’s help
With Covid lockdowns gone but Covid variants still around, it’s possible you, or others in your unit could contract Covid and need to isolate and recover.
If you do, call the Concierge so any mail of grocery deliveries can be taken up to your door. While you recover, this also reduces the risk of transmission to others in common areas, including in the lift or gym.
Do you need help to evacuate?
If an emergency occurs most of us are able to respond and make our way down the fire stairs, others find this difficult.
If someone in your unit has issues with their vision, hearing, mobility, cognitive or other conditions that would pose difficulty to get out safely, please let the Concierge know.
In an emergency, the Fire team identifies priority floors and who to assist to evacuate safely.
Advise the Concierge if someone in your unit should be on this list.

There are three ways to dispose of rubbish:
What Goes Down The Chute
Items in Car Spaces
Only items with wheels are permitted to be stored in car spaces. The reason is all other items pose a fire or health risk as vermin like rats and cockroaches nest in boxes.
Residents will be warned of items to be removed. On the third reminder the items will be disposed of by the Building Manager. This includes any items not owned by current occupants or owners, eg. vacated tenants.

Acumen Strata - Full Update
Occasionally drains are blocked by the wrong items being flushed. Thankfully it does not occur frequently but it is expensive for the building, and owners when it does. Also awfully inconvenient for a Resident if it results in a flood inside a unit.
There are items which should not be flushed. Please see the full notice.
