Vancouver skyline by constructing landmark residences in response to
the housing needs of our dynamic marketplace.
With over 200 successful projects to their credit, Cressey has built a solid reputation as

THE ARCHITECT
“MAINTAINING A TIMELESS AND REFINED DESIGN PHILOSOPHY”
Since 1983, Vancouver-based RAFII ARCHITECTS INC. has designed numerous trend-setting buildings, and is
particularly active in the design of high-end, mixed-use, and high-rise residential projects. RAFII believes in
designing innovative yet practical projects, which are timeless in design, and always contextually sensitive to
their environment.
RAFII has won numerous awards for
their designs and has been credited
to being “one of the architectural
firms
that
shaped
today’s
Vancouver” (Vancouver Sun). They
take great pride in being able to inject new energy and vitality into various neighborhoods with their projects,
but “for RAFII, a project can only be called successful when it satisfies three parties: the architects, the clients,
and the end users” (Canadian Builders Quarterly).
SUSTAINABILITY CONSULTANTS
Kane Consulting is a team of sustainability consultants specializing in helping to build and operate better,
smarter buildings. By utilizing the benefits of location, passive strategies and technology, individual buildings
and communities improve their use of natural resources and in turn, reduce their environmental footprint.
We work with owners and facility managers to define,
prioritize, and realize their sustainability objectives. By utilizing
energy, water, materials and the landscape more effectively,
the building’s operating efficiency and environmental quality
increases while reducing operating costs.

THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS
DELIVERY DATE
The delivery date for your home begins as an estimate. Until components are completed and the structure is
enclosed, the delivery date can be dramatically affected by weather conditions and the availability of labor
and materials. Even after the home is past weather-related and labor/ material delay potential, the installation
of utility services, final grading, concrete flatwork, etcetera can affect the delivery date. City occupancy
permits are acquired once these elements are complete.
**Depending on availability of labor and materials, weather conditions, site conditions and the construction
process, some homes may not be completed by their estimated delivery dates**
VARIATIONS
Products used during the construction process may change due to circumstances beyond the Developer’s
control. For example, variations in products may occur as a result of supplier/assembly line changes, industry
changes, and procurement changes. In all instances, as required by your purchase agreement, any
substitution of method or product shall be of equal or better quality than the original specification.
Your unit may also be altered during the construction process; for instance, mechanical, electrical or structural
modifications may necessitate alternations.
Variations within the same type of unit will also occur if the purchaser elected to pay for an upgrade option.

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
While emergency warranty situations are rare, when they occur, prompt response is essential. You may be able
to mitigate or solve electrical and plumbing problems by referring to the troubleshooting tips section of this
Manual (see table of contents). For natural gas and poison control emergencies, phone the numbers noted in
the “Emergency Contact” section of this Manual.
Travelers requires owners to mitigate damage (including damage caused by defects or water penetration as set
out in the warranty certificate); failure to do so may prejudice the owner’s entitlement to warranty coverage.
An emergency constitutes a:





Total loss of heat when the outside temperature is below 50°F;
Total loss of electricity;
Total loss of water;
Plumbing leak that requires the entire water supply to be shut off; and/or
A gas leak.
During regular business hours, contact either the Developer or Property Manager to report warrantable
emergency repairs. After hours, contact either the Property Manager or the applicable local utility company. If
this does not solve the problem, contact the applicable trade contractor listed in the “Trade Contact
Information” section of this Manual.
The Developer will only reimburse the owner for after-hours emergency costs if the Developer, in its sole discretion,
determines that:
1)
2)
3)
4)
A warrantable emergency existed;
The owner did everything and anything necessary to mitigate the damage;
The owner did not contravene procedures noted in the Manual;
The repairs were facilitated by the applicable contractor listed in the “Trade Contact
Information” section of this Manual;
5) The emergency occurred during the warranty period; and
6) The emergency is not covered by another insurance policy.
**If a service (gas, electricity, water) is out in an entire area, attention from the local utility company is
required**

YOUR ROLE AS A OWNER
14

Maintain your home.

Read the Manual, including all Appendices.

Read the care manuals (attached hereto as Appendices 01-28). Fill out and submit warranty cards.

Read and comply with obligations outlined in Travelers Guarantee (attached hereto as Appendix 01).

Ensure you activate your utility account prior to your legal possession date.

Purchase insurance for your home (for example, personal property & 3rd party liability coverage),
effective your legal closing date.

Mitigate damage. Take all necessary steps to prevent damage to your home. Your warranty will be void if
defects occur or are made worse due to the owner’s failure to either mitigate damage or follow
maintenance procedures.

Prevent condensation. Follow the instructions outlined in this Manual to avoid condensation. Damages
caused by condensation will not be corrected through our warranty program. In fact, evidence of
unmanaged condensation may render an owner’s warranty null and void.

Do not tamper with your bathroom fan timer or, where applicable, your dryer booster fan. Tampering with
same will void your home warranty.

Keep your laundry closet doors open while your washer/dryer are in use. Clean your dryer lint trap each
time the dryer is used. If applicable, clean your booster fan lint trap as required.

Where applicable, ensure your plumbing systems are winterized (hose bibs, irrigation systems, outdoor
kitchens, BBQ’s, fire pits etcetera).

Keep a record of your fob’s serial number. If you lose your fob, immediately report the loss to your
Property Manager. This will help maintain the security of the building.

Take note of your closing date; it is tied to your warranty expiry dates (please see the “Warranty
Description” section of the Manual for more information).

Submit notice of warrantable deficiencies 30 days before your applicable warranty expiry date. The
Developer will not remind you of your warranty deadline.

Provide both your Property Manager and the Meccanica Customer Service Administration Team your
current contact information.

Do not hire an unauthorized trade to repair warrantable deficiencies; if you do, you will void your
warranty. If you require warranty work, follow instructions outlines in the “Emergency Procedures” and
“Warranty Description” sections of this Manual. The Developer will not reimburse owners for privately
contracted work.

YOUR BUILDING
MECCANICA
Four Walls Inspired By Four Wheels.
Welcome to Meccanica, a tailored machine with a base building
and highrise tower that embrace the beauty of straight lines and strong edges. Automotive detailing can be
found all throughout its architecture style - from its smooth, symmetrical profile, to the grill-like look of its western
façade, to its classic exterior of galvanized metal and glass, punctuated with bursts of color.
DESIGNED AND BUILT WITH A STRONG GREEN FOCUS
Meccanica follows the City of Vancouver’s Southeast False Creek
Green Building Strategy, which was built on a foundation of
sustainability principles.
By living in this development, you are contributing to a more
sustainable future with:

Water Conservation: water efficient landscaping and effective
but low water use plumbing fixtures.

Livability: green roofs, car sharing, good indoor air quality and healthy interior finishes.

Energy Conservation: use of energy star appliances and energy efficient lighting.
Meccanica is also connected to an efficient district energy system, the Neighborhood Energy Utility
(“NEU”). The NEU is an environmentally friendly community energy system, which applies economies of
scale to supply heat and hot water to neighborhood homes while using less energy. Heat is extracted
from community biological waste and transferred to the building’s energy transfer station. From here, it
is fed to individual suites via a hybrid heat pump.
EXTRAS…
New places to work out, hang out and pig out without ever leaving the building.
ROOFTOP DECK
The rooftop deck is more than just a place to have a barbeque. It’s
a place where owners and friends can gather – whether it’s just a
casual, spontaneous get-together for watching the fireworks, or a
formal party celebrating an important event like a wedding or
birthday. The rooftop deck features landscaped gardens,
community garden plots and a children’s play area.
GYM
Enjoy the convenience of a work out facility without the inconvenience of commuting to an alternate location.
DINING HALL WITH DEMONSTRATION KITCHEN
Think: a 1,100 square foot entertaining room with a 12 person table, a chef’s demonstration kitchen and the
ideal place to showcase your hosting skills.
19
CAR SHARING PROGRAM
Meccanica is the home of two Modo car share vehicles. Your purchase price includes a free one-year "Casual
Modo Membership" and a one-time driving credit of $40. The Modo vehicles are accessible "24/7/365"; they are
conveniently located at the base of the parkade entrance ramp. To begin your driving experience, contact
Modo at (604) 685-1393. For more information, refer to Appendix 22.
20
YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
Meccanica lives in the heart of Southeast False Creek, the only neighbourhood to perfectly straddle the city’s
east and west sides. It was once the industrial heartland of Vancouver but, whoa, what a renaissance. With
brand new bike lanes, street level patios, and lushly landscaped sidewalks, these streets are quickly evolving
into the coolest neighbourhood.

WARRANTY PROVIDER
Travelers Guarantee Company of Canada
Warranty Coverage for New Home Buyers
PROTECTING YOUR INVESTMENT IN A NEW HOME
Tel: (604) 682-3095
Toll Free: 1-888-555-9431
650 West Georgia Street, Suite 2500
P.O. Box 11542
Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 4N7
www.travelerscanada.ca
Congratulations on your decision to purchase a new house, townhome or condominium. A new home is likely
the largest investment of your lifetime. Therefore, we encourage you to carefully research all aspects and to
seek professional advice when required. In order to receive the benefits of Home Warranty Coverage from
Travelers Guarantee Company of Canada (“Travelers Guarantee”), consumers must purchase a new home
built and sold by one of our approved Builders. Prior to signing a Contract of Purchase and Sale, it is also
prudent to contact Travelers Guarantee to verify that the Builder is officially registered and that Home Warranty
Coverage has been issued on your prospective new home.
OWNER PROTECTION ACT – STRONG PROTECTION FOR NEW HOME BUYERS
The Homeowner Protection Act & its Regulations (“Act”) became effective July 1, 1999. Prior to the issuance of
a building permit, the Act requires all residential builders to be licensed by the Homeowner Protection Office
(HPO) and to provide the “2/5/10” warranty from an approved third party warranty provider. For further
information, contact HPO at: (604) 646-7050 or visit their website at www.hpo.bc.ca/.
WHAT IS A “2/5/10” WARRANTY?
The Act outlines specific details about the mandatory warranty commonly referred to as a “2/5/10” warranty. It
is the most comprehensive third party warranty in North America, and even the world. By law, builders must
provide a third party warranty covering:

First 12 months – coverage for any defect in materials and labor;

First 15 months – coverage for any defects in materials and labour in the common property of a multiunit building; and

First 24 months – coverage for any defect in materials and labour supplied for the electrical, plumbing,
heating, ventilation and air conditioning delivery and distribution systems. In addition, coverage for any
defect in materials and labour supplied for the exterior cladding, caulking, windows and doors that may
lead to detachment or material damage to the new home.
Our approved Builders are responsible for having their new home buyers sign and date a Warranty
Commencement Date Certificate at the time of either title transfer or the actual occupancy of the home
(whichever is earlier). Upon receipt of this completed certificate from the Builder, Travelers Guarantee issues the
owner a Home Warranty Coverage Certificate. Be sure to read this document carefully and keep it in a safe
place. It explains warranty coverage and the process for reporting defects in your home or common property.
Upon review, if you have questions or require clarification, please contact Travelers Guarantee.

WE’RE HERE TO STAY
In 2007, our parent company, The St. Paul Travelers Companies Inc., underwent a name change to The
Travelers Companies Inc. This entity was the result of a merger between The St. Paul Companies Inc. and
Travelers Property Casualty in April 2004. They provide commercial property-liability insurance and non-life
reinsurance worldwide, and asset management through its subsidiary The John Nuveen Company. They have
offices and subsidiaries throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. The
Travelers Companies Inc. is a world leader in surety bonding and one of the largest providers of construction
insurance in the United States.
We were the first warranty provider to enter the home warranty market in British Columbia following the
introduction of the legislation under the Act. We have firmly established a reputation for employing highly
experienced staff, implementing strong underwriting guidelines, and for delivering exceptional customer
service.
Travelers Guarantee Company of Canada is fully committed to the home warranty business for the long term.

25
WARRANTY DESCRIPTION
The Developer constructed your home with carefully selected materials and the effort of experienced
craftsmen. Although this group works from detailed plans and specifications, no two homes are built exactly
alike. Each home is unique; in fact, a home is one of the last hand-build products in the world.
Each home requires care administered by the owner beginning the very first day. Regular maintenance is
essential to maintaining a quality home for a lifetime. Neglecting routine maintenance will not only erode home
value, it can also affect the overall desirability of the community. Most importantly, it can void warranty
coverage on all or part of your home!
The Developer is a licensed builder registered with the Homeowner Protection Office. The Developer’s warranty
is backed by third party insurance, per the BC Homeowner Protection Act. The third party insurance provider
for Meccanica is Travelers Guarantee Company of Canada (“Travelers”).
The Developer, in conjunction with Travelers, has arranged for one of the most comprehensive warranties in the
industry. The following table describes the timelines and lengths of the “2/5/10” coverage:
WARRANTY
COVERAGE DESCRIPTION
LENGTH
** CONSULT THE TRAVELERS HOME WARRANTY POLICY FOR MORE DETAILS**
12 MONTHS
Coverage for any defect in materials and/or labor.
15 MONTHS
Coverage for any defects in materials and labour in the common property of a multi-unit building.
Coverage for any defect in materials and labor supplied for the electrical, plumbing, heating,
ventilation and air conditioning delivery and distribution systems.
24 MONTHS
In addition, coverage for any defect in materials and labor supplied for the exterior cladding,
caulking, windows, and doors that may lead to detachment or material damage to the dwelling
unit.
5 YEARS
Building Envelope Warranty.
10 YEARS
Structural Defects Warranty.
**Common property is considered all the areas outside of your home bounded by your strata lot. Should a
dispute arise between the owner and the Developer regarding a warrantable construction item, both this
Manual and the Traveler’s home warranty will serve as the standard to settle such disputes**
26
DEFICIENCY & WARRANTY REPAIRS
There will only be one initial orientation per suite. A subsequent purchaser will not have an opportunity to
conduct a second walkthrough with the Developer.
All warranties are linked to the “initial sale closing date”, which is defined as the closing date between the
Developer and the purchaser. Subsequent purchaser(s) may benefit from unexpired portions of the warranties;
for example, a subsequent purchaser’s 12 Month Warranty will expire 364 days after the initial sale closing date.
Refer to the “12 Month Corrective Period”, the “24 Month Corrective Period” and the “Corrective Period Rules
& Regulations” for warranty information.
INITIAL ORIENTATION
The Customer Service Administration Department will contact the purchaser to set up an initial orientation
appointment to view the purchaser’s new home. The target appointment date is approximately 1-8 weeks prior
to the initial sale closing date. During the inspection, a Customer Service Administrator will:


Introduce the purchaser to the various components of his/her new home (for example, water and gas
shut off locations etcetera.); and
Make a deficiency list of any outstanding construction deficiencies. This is the only time deficiencies
such as scratches on hardwood, dents on appliances, scuff marks in bathtubs, cosmetic defects on
plumbing features etcetera can be reported. The reason for this is post-closing, items can be damaged
by owners.
The Developer will endeavour to complete outstanding deficiencies within a reasonable period following the
initial sale closing date. If the Developer cannot reach the owner to book appointments or obtain sign offs, the
owner’s file will be closed and the deficiencies deemed completed.
A Customer Service Administrator may record a number of items on the Initial Orientation form; that stated, the
Developer will only correct items that are regarded as deficiencies per the Homeowner Protection Act
(Residential Construction Performance Guide), regardless of what the Customer Service Administrator may
promise.
12 MONTH CORRECTIVE PERIOD
364 days after the initial sale closing date, the owner has a second opportunity to report warrantable defects.
This is the best time to report items such as cracked drywall and other deficiencies due to shrinking and settling.
For more information, refer to both the “Corrective Period Rules & Regulations”, “Electrical System”, “Plumbing
System”, “Appliances” and the “Protecting Your Investment” sections of this Manual.
To report warrantable deficiencies, please complete and forward the “Service Request Form” found at the end
of this Manual. Warrantable service request will be entered into our database and dealt with in a timely
manner (following the expiry of the 12 Month Corrective Period).
CORRECTIVE PERIOD RULES & REGULATIONS
1) The warranty coverage is conditional upon the owner:




27
completing reasonable maintenance of the home;
conducting reasonable inspections of the home from time to time in order to discover if a
defect exists;
reporting warrantable defects when they are discovered; and
mitigating damages, including damage caused by defects or water penetration.
2) The Developer will not remind owners (or their tenants/Property Managers etcetera) their warranty expiry
dates are approaching. It is the owner’s responsibility to report any warrantable deficiencies prior to their
warranty deadlines via procedures noted in this Manual. The 12 month warranty expires 364 days after the
initial sale closing date. The 24 month warranty expires 728 days after the initial sale closing date.
3) The Developer will not recognize a request for service that is communicated to our on-site personnel.
4) Registered owners and/or their authorized representative must give the Developer written notice that a
warrantable deficiency exists in the home. Owners must record the warrantable deficiency on the
“Service Request Form” found either at the end of this Manual or on our website (www.cressey.com). The
owner must then e-mail or mail the form to the Developer using the e-mail/address noted on the form. If
the owner mails the “Service Request Form”, he/she must do so by registered mail. Forms will not be
deemed received (email or otherwise) until the Developer sends the owner a confirmation notice. The
Developer will not accept emergency or non-emergency service requests that contravene this procedure.
5) Owners and/or their authorized representative must send a copy of their “Service Request Form” to
Travelers, prior to the expiry date of the applicable warranty. Owners must review their Traveler’s
documentation to ensure they are complying with Traveler’s “Notice of Claim” requirements. Amongst
other things, Travelers requires the owner to submit their Home Warranty Certificate Number, particulars of
the claim etcetera.
6) We encourage owners/their representatives to submit written warranty request forms 30 days prior to their
applicable warranty expiry date. The Developer must receive the “Service Request Form” the day before
the applicable warranty period expires; otherwise the warranty will be deemed expired. The Developer will
begin inspecting non-emergency “12 Month Corrective Period” warrantable items and “24 Month
Corrective Period” warrantable requests after the applicable warranty period has expired.
7) The Developer will contact the owner using the contact information listed on the “Service Request Form”.
The Developer will not contact the owner’s tenant. If the Developer cannot contact with the owner within a
30 day period, all warranty work will be considered complete and the file will be closed.
8) If the Developer cannot gain timely access to inspect a warrantable deficiency, the defect/damage will be
excluded from warranty coverage.
9) The Developer’s Customer Service Administration Team will schedule warranty appointments during regular
business hours - 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Monday through Friday (statutory holidays excluded).
10) The owner or his/her representative must be present when the Developer inspects alleged deficiencies and
corrects warrantable defects. If a unit is tenanted, the owner will need to contact the tenant to arrange
access to the suite. It is important the owner schedules service appointments at a time when he/she can
remain in the unit until the repairs are completed.
11) The Developer’s first warranty appointment will be to inspect items recorded on the “Service Request
Form”. The Developer’s technician will use his/her best efforts to determine whether or not a listed item
qualifies as a warrantable deficiency; in some instances, the supplying/installing sub-contractor/trade may
need to review the alleged defect to determine if a warrantable deficiency exists. If there are warrantable
defects in the home, the Developer will schedule a second or subsequent appointment(s) to repair the
deficiencies.
28
12) Only warrantable deficiencies will be corrected. The Developer will refer to the “Residential Construction
Performance Guide” (published by the Homeowner Protection Office – a Branch of BC Housing) when
determining whether or not an item is a warrantable defect. The Developer will also refer to the “Protecting
Your Investments” section of this Manual.
13) The applicable sub-contractor/trade is the only party authorized to make warranty repairs. Refer to the
“Trade Contact Information” section of this Manual for contact information. If another sub-contractor/trade
repairs a warrantable defect, the owner will not be reimbursed for the repair cost. Further, the warranty on
that particular component will be void. For example, Benson Industries supplied and installed cabinets at
Meccanica; only Benson Industries can correct warrantable cabinet deficiencies.
14) If a sub-contractor/trade is asked to attend a home inspection and determines a warrantable deficiency
does not exist, the owner will be responsible for both the travel and repair costs of the sub-contractor/trade.
Prior to a sub-contractor/trades scheduled appointment, the owner must familiarize herself/himself with the
sub-contractor’s rate sheet/price list. It is not the responsibility of the developer to procure and forward price
schedules.
15) The Developer will invoice an owner $80 per hour if the Developer’s technician is asked to inspect
damages that were caused by the owner’s negligence or lack of maintenance.
16) Refer to the “Troubleshooting Tips: Electrical” and “Troubleshooting Tips: Plumbing” sections of this Manual
before reporting electrical or plumbing issues.
17) This warranty does not cover changes, alterations or additions made to the home by anyone other than
the Developer and/or its sub-contractors/trades. During the warranty period, ensure you contact the
applicable trade to discuss changes, alterations or additions prior to commencing work. If you alter the
original contractor’s installation, their warranty will be void.
18) This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, weathering, deterioration or deflection consistent with
normal industry standards.
19) Maintenance duties such as sink plug cleanings and burnt out light bulbs will not be attended to, as these
items are considered normal wear and tear.
20) The warranty does not include damage that is caused or made worse by an owner’s improper
maintenance, operation, or failure to take timely action and reasonable steps to prevent or minimize loss or
damage. The Developer requires the owner to maintain the home and mitigate any damage, including
damage caused by caused by water penetration. The owner’s duty to mitigate survives even if:




The home is unoccupied;
The home is occupied by someone other than the owner;
Water penetration does not appear to be causing damage; or
The owner advises the Strata Corporation about the defect.
21) The warranty does not cover expenses an owner may incur as warrantable deficiencies are corrected (for
example, lost wages arising from an owner’s obligation to be present while warrantable repairs are
completed).
22) This warranty does not cover moving of furniture or electronics to complete warrantable repairs.
29
23) Damages resulting from either inadequate or excessive suite heat and/or humidity will not be remedied.
For example, engineered hardwood floor damage resulting from either inadequate or excessive suite heat
and/or humidity will not be remedied under warranty. According to your flooring’s maintenance
documents, your suite temperature must be kept between 65-75°F (18-24°C) and your suite humidity levels
must be between of 35-55% at all times. Problems resulting from flooring exposure to heat and/or humidity
levels outside of the above noted ranges will not be covered by warranty. For more information, refer to
Appendix 10.
24) Damages resulting from condensation and/or poor ventilation will not be remedied. Review the “Avoiding
Condensation Problems” literature attached hereto as Appendix 10.
25) Tampering with the automatic bathroom fan will void the home warranty.
26) Tampering with the booster fan switch (if installed), by either setting it to the “off” position or otherwise
disengaging it, will void the home warranty.
27) The Developer is not responsible for appliance repairs after the initial sale closing date. To facilitate an
appliance repair, contact the appliance service company directly. Refer to the “Appliances” or
“Emergency Contacts” sections of this Manual for appliance service phone number(s). For product specific
warranty/maintenance information, refer to Appendix 02. The appliance customer service representative
will request your faulty appliance’s model/serial number during the service call.
Prior to initiating a request for service:
 Peruse the trouble shooting sections of your applicable appliance manual; and
 Ensure a breaker has not tripped.
If an appliance technician inspects your appliance and determines the malfunction is not covered by
warranty, the owner will be responsible for the technician’s travel and/or repair costs.
28) The Developer will only repair some warrantable items once during the term of the warranty (refer to the
“Protecting Your Investment” section of this Manual for details regarding warranty policies/guidelines). For
example, the Developer will come once, within the applicable warranty period, to remedy reported
warrantable cracks in either the drywall or the ceiling. The owner will be responsible for remedying
subsequent cracks, at the owner’s cost.
29) Meccanica Customer Service Administrators will sign off on either a construction or warrantable deficiency
if, in the Customer Service Administration Department’s opinion, the applicable deficiency has been
remedied to industry standards. The purchaser’s signature will not be required. Industry standards are
outlined in the “Residential Construction Performance Guide” published by the Homeowner Protection
Office (a branch of B.C. Housing). To view a copy of the guide, visit www.hpo.bc.ca/.
30) Implied or expressed warranties or representations made by a Customer Service Administrator to an owner
are not binding on the Developer.
31) The Developer is not responsible for third party damage(s).
32) The Developer is not responsible for damage resulting from an act of God.
30
33) Lack of knowledge of a particular maintenance requirement is not justification for requesting the
Developer to make a repair.
24 MONTH CORRECTIVE PERIOD
This is the final corrective period in the “2/5/10” warranty. During this period, the owner is entitled to report
defects in the electrical, plumbing, heating, and ventilation. In addition, the owner is also entitled to report
defects in materials and labour supplied for the exterior cladding, caulking, windows and doors that may lead
to detachment or damage to the home. To facilitate repairs, please complete and forward the “Service
Request Form” found at the end of this Manual; then e-mail or mail this form to the Developer using the email/address indicated on the form. If the owner mails the “Service Request Form”, he/she must do so by
registered mail. Forms will not be deemed received (email or otherwise) until the Developer sends the owner a
confirmation email. The Developer will use its best efforts to complete warranty repairs within a reasonable
period of time, following the expiry of the “24 Month Corrective Period”.
Refer to the “Corrective Period Rules & Regulations” recorded under the “12 Month Corrective Period”. Where
applicable, they also apply to the “24 Month Corrective Period”. For example, if the owner does not deliver
his/her written request to the Developer on or before the day the applicable warranty period expires, then that
warranty will be deemed expired.
The Developer, in its sole discretion, will determine which “Corrective Period Rules & Regulations” apply to the
“24 Month Corrective Period”.
WARRANTY REPORTING AFTER THE 24 MONTH CORRECTIVE PERIOD
After the “24 Month corrective Period”, the warranty covering materials and labour is complete. Refer to the
“Travelers Home Warranty Certificate” (Appendix 01) for a description of the remaining warranties.
COMMON PROPERTY & LIMITED COMMON PROPERTY
Service and warranty on all issues relating to areas outside of your home will be dealt with through the Property
Manager. Report any defects you notice to your property management company.
HOME INSURANCE
Contact a private insurance company directly to determine the type of insurance policy you require at closing.
It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure proper insurance is purchased.
31
CONDENSATION/VENTILATION
When warm, moist air comes into contact with cooler surface, the moisture condenses. Outside we see this as
dew; inside you may see it as a layer of moister on glass windows and doors. This condensation comes from
high humidity within the home, combined with low outside temperatures and inadequate ventilation.
Normal activities cause condensation. As you live in your home, your daily lifestyle contributes to the moisture in
the air. Cooking, clothes washing, clothes drying, bathing, showering, aquariums, plants (etcetera) all add
water to the air in your home. Your daily routine can minimize the amount of moisture in your home, thereby
reducing condensation on interior surfaces.
TO REDUCE IN-SUITE MOISTURE:
32

Do not cover or interfere, in any way, with the fresh air supply to your suite;

Keep the dryer exhaust hose clean and securely connected;

Keep the dryer lint trap clean (remove lint after each use);

Where applicable, keep the dryer booster fan lint trap clean (refer to Appendix 18 for more
information);

Keep the laundry closet doors open when the washer/dryer are in use;

Do not allow wet clothes to dry indoors. Dry your clothes in the provided dryer;

Run the hood fan when you are cooking;

Do not use your gas stove to heat your home;

When cooking, put a lid on boiling water;

Run your bathroom fan(s) when taking a shower or bath. Continue running the fan(s) for approximately
1 hour following your shower or bath. Failure to follow this instruction will void your entire home warranty;

Do not tamper with the main bathroom fan timer. It is wired to run 8 hours each day, between the hours
of 8 AM – 12 PM, and 4 PM – 8 PM. Tampering with same will void your entire home warranty:

Where applicable, do not tamper with your booster fan;

If you notice condensation forming on your windows and mirrors, increase ventilation by opening a
window slightly. This will allow humidity to escape;

Open blinds and drapes so air can circulate freely over windows;

Do not allow furniture/bookcases to touch outside walls – this will improve air circulation around the
cooler outside walls;

Keep your suite temperature between 18 - 24°C, at all times; and

Use a de-humidifier in the cooler months, when the surface temperature of the building components
(walls, windows) is close to the dew point.
If you observe condensation, ventilate your home by turning on a fan or opening a window. Next, confirm your
home’s heating system is running 24 hours per day, 7 days a week (see above for temperature setting
requirements). If the Developer’s technician notices your clothes are air-drying on racks and/or you are using
the stove as a heat source, your home warranty will be cancelled forthwith.
Examples of condensation damage include:



Mold growing on window frames, drywall and other surfaces (very unhealthy!);
Cords on the window blinds swelling, making the blinds hard to operate and likely to break; and
Water filling the bottom window track and damaging the drywall and wood sill beside it.
If your windows are fogged up or wet on the inside, you are damaging your home. You will be held
accountable for the damages. Remove standing water from your window sill(s) and ensure it does not travel to
adjacent drywall/baseboards. Take steps to ensure condensation does not re-occur.
For more information, review the “Avoiding Condensation Problems” literature attached hereto as Appendix
10.
WARRANTY GUIDELINES
Condensation is usually a function of weather conditions and a family’s lifestyle. Damage caused by
condensation (including damage which spreads to other suites) is not covered by warranty. Further, failure to
observe and implement the recommended daily living habits noted above may render the Developer’s entire
warranty null and void.

HOW TO SHUT OFF THE ELECTRICAL IN YOUR HOME - VIDEO
34
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
OWNER USE & MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES
Know the location of the main electrical breaker panel. The panel includes:



A main shut-off that controls all the electrical power to the home;
Individual breakers that control the separate circuits; and
A labelled table stating the purpose of each breaker.
Should an electrical failure occur in your home, always check the breakers in the main electrical breaker panel.
MAIN ELECTRICAL PANEL
The main electrical panel provides a shutoff breaker for all the electricity in your
home. The main electrical panel is usually located in a bedroom or storage closet;
please take the time to note its location.
CIRCUIT BREAKER
CIRCUIT BREAKERS
Circuit breakers have three positions: on, off, and tripped. When a circuit breaker
has been tripped, it must first be turned off before it can be turned on. Switching
the breaker directly from tripped to on will not restore service.
MAIN SHUT OFF
BREAKER
BREAKERS TRIPPING
Breakers can trip as a result of the following:




Too many appliances plugged into the circuit;
A worn cord;
A defective appliance; and/or
The starting of an electric motor.
If a circuit trips repeatedly, unplug all items connected to it and reset the breaker. If it
trips when nothing is connected to it, you need to call an electrician. Contact the
original installing electrician during the warranty period.
** Figure 1 illustrates an example of how to reset a tripped circuit breaker**
FIGURE 1
BUZZING
Fluorescent fixtures use transformer action to operate. This action sometimes causes a buzzing noise. Loud
buzzing may mean the transformer needs to be replaced.
35
FIXTURE LOCATION
The Developer installs light fixtures in locations indicated on the plans. The owner is responsible for costs
associated with moving fixtures to accommodate a specific furniture arrangements or room use.
During the warranty period, the owner must speak with the original electrical contractor prior to commencing
electrical work in the suite. The owner’s electrical warranty will be void if another party alters the original
electrical installation. After the warranty period, the owner is free to hire the qualified electrical contractor of
his/her choice. Refer to the “Trade Contact Information” section of this Manual for contact details.
FIXTURES INSTALLATION – CEILING SLAB
The Developer does not recommend drilling into the ceiling slab to install a light fixture. In the event an owner
does not heed this advice, the owner must contact the Property Manager and original electrical contractor
prior to commencing work. The original electrical contractor’s warranty will be void if another party alters the
electrical installation. Refer to the “Trade Contact Information” section of this Manual for contact details. The
owner is responsible for all costs associated with non-warrantable work.
GFCI (GROUND-FAULT CIRCUIT-INTERRUPTERS)
The GFCI is a circuit breaker. GFCI receptacles have a built-in element that sense fluctuations in power.
Building codes require installation of these receptacles in bathrooms and kitchens, where an individual can
come into contact with water while holding an electric appliance or tool. One GFCI breaker can control up to
three or four outlets. Each GFCI circuit has a test and reset button. Once each month, press the test button.
This will trip the circuit. To return service, press the reset button. If a GFCI breaker trips during normal use, it may
indicate a faulty appliance; you will need to investigate the problem. Do not plug heavy appliances into a
GFCI receptacle, as they will trip the GFCI breaker.
CAUTION: if you plug a refrigerator or food freezer into a GFCI-controlled outlet, the GFCI breaker will trip. The
food stored in your fridge/freezer will be ruined. The warranty does not cover such damage.
GROUNDED SYSTEM
Your electrical system is a three-wire grounded system. Never remove the bare wire that connects to the box or
device.
FLOOR HEATING – NUHEAT, WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty and care information, refer to Appendix 13.
LIGHT BULBS
The owner is responsible for replacing burned-out bulbs, other than those
noted during the initial orientation. When you replace bulbs, do not exceed
the wattage indicated inside the fixture as this may cause a safety hazard and
void the warranty on the fixture.
MODIFICATIONS
If you wish to make electrical modifications during the warranty period, contact the original electrical
contractor prior to starting the work. Having another electrician modify your electrical system during the
warranty period will void your electrical warranty. Refer to the “Trade Contact Information” section of this
Manual for contact numbers. Owners will be responsible for all costs associated with non-warrantable work.
36
OUTLETS
If an outlet is not working, check first to see if it is controlled by a wall switch or GFCI. Next, check the breaker. If
you cannot determine the cause of the failure, contact either the Developer (if the problem occurs within your
warranty period), or a qualified electrician (if the problem occurs after the warranty has expired).
SMOKE DETECTORS
Each home is equipped with smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are installed in accordance with building
codes, which dictate locations. The Developer cannot omit any smoke detectors, and you should not remove
or disable same. The number of detectors per home depends upon the size of the home.
Testing your smoke detector is very important. The owner should:





Test the smoke detector once a month;
Hold the test button on the detector for 10 seconds to ensure the device beeps or rings loudly;
Avoid lighting candles under the detector to see if the alarm goes off. Repeated use of smoke to
activate an alarm can cause detectors to fail when a real fire occurs;
If applicable, change the batteries at least twice a year – at the start and end of daylight savings time is
a good rule of thumb (also, if your smoke detector starts chirping or beeping, it’s time to change the
batteries); and
Clean the smoke detector twice a year with a vacuum.
Remember, if your alarm goes off, you have only seconds to respond. Your best response is to leave your home
immediately and call 911 from a phone outside your home. For more information, please refer to Appendix 13.
CONTROL 4, WHERE APPLICABLE
Contact Smart-Tek Communications at 604-277-1889 to schedule installation of Control 4 dimmers, keypad,
upgrades etcetera. If another party is contracted to install/modify any component of the Control 4 during the
warranty period, Smart-Tek’s warranty will be void. Ensure your cable/phone/internet provider does not unplug
the Control 4 system during their installation appointment. For warranty and care information, refer to
Appendix 14.
Your Control 4 package includes 2 dimmers, 1 remote, 1keypad and 1 controller. If you wish to add additional
features, you will be invoiced for the cost. Appendix 14 includes a brochure which outlines upgrades options.
INITIAL ORIENTATION & WARRANTY GUIDELINES
During the initial orientation, we confirm that light fixtures, outlets and the Nuheat system (if applicable) are
functioning as intended. The warranty excludes any fixture you supplied. We also point out the location of the
main electrical breaker panel.
Refer to the “Warranty Provider” and “Warranty Description” sections of this Manual for warranty terms.
During the warranty, the Developer will repair any:
37

Electrical wiring that fails to carry its specified design load (with the exception of alarm pre-wiring); and

Electrical outlet, switch, or fixture that does not function as intended.
This warranty does not cover:

Alterations to the home and/or damages resulting from alterations. During the warranty period, ensure
you contact the original electrical contractor and/or Control 4 provider to discuss changes, alterations
or additions prior to starting any work. If you alter the original contractor’s installation, their warranty will
be void;

Food spoilage resulting from plugging refrigerators or freezers into a GFCI outlet;

Damage resulting from using a light bulb that exceeds the specified fixture wattage;

Changing a smoke detector’s batteries (if applicable);

Damages resulting from power surges beyond the Developer’s control. Power surges can cause
burned-out bulbs or damage to sensitive electronic equipment such as TVs, alarm systems, and
computers; and

Damage resulting from lighting strikes.
For additional warranty and care information, refer to Appendix 13.
38
ELECTRICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Your home is equipped with a fire alarm strobe light or a fire alarm speaker that is maintained by the strata.
These lights/speakers are connected to the main fire alarm system and should never be obstructed or
tampered with.
The Developer reserves the right to make changes to the electrical specifications. Any substitution of method
or product shall be of equal or better quality than the original specification.
We used our best efforts to ensure the “Electrical Specifications” section is correct; however, we make no
representations or guarantees, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of same.

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS: PLUMBING
NO WATER ANYWHERE IN THE HOME
Before calling for service, check to confirm that the:



Main shut off in your home is open;
Main shut off to the building is open; and
Individual shut-offs for each plumbing item are open.
LEAK INVOLVING A SINK OR TUB
Turn water supply off to that item.


Confirm the shower door/tub enclosure was properly closed and bath mats are used (refer to the
“Protecting Your Investment – Shower Enclosure” section of this Manual for more information); and
Use other facilities in your home; report problem on next business day.
BACK UP AT ONE TOILET
If only one toilet is affected, corrections can be carried out during normal business hours.



Shut off the water supply to the toilet involved;
Use a plunger to clear the blockage; and
If you have been in your home fewer than 30 days, contact Meccanica Customer Service
Administrators; if not, contact a qualified repair service. You will be responsible for the cost.

PLUMBING SYSTEM
OWNER USE & MAINTENACE GUIDELINES
Your plumbing system contains many parts. To ensure years of service:


Properly clean components; and
Service components when required.
AERATORS
Even though your plumbing lines have been flushed to remove dirt and foreign matter, small amounts of
minerals may enter the line. Aerators are located at the tip of the faucet - they strain foreign material from your
water. Minerals caught in aerators may cause the faucets to drip as washers wear more rapidly when they
come in contact with foreign matter. As part of normal maintenance, you will occasionally need to clean your
aerator.
Aerators are the mesh like screen.
AERATOR
EXAMPLE OF AERATOR
BATHROOM FAN TIMER
Your main bathroom fan is controlled by an Intermatic time switch; for more information refer to
Appendix 18.
As required by the British Columbia Building Code (BCBC), your main bathroom fan must run a
minimum of 8 hours per day. This requirement can be increased, but it will never be decreased.
To comply with this requirement, your main bathroom fan has been set to run between 8 AM – 12
PM and 4 PM – 8 PM daily. Please be aware that tampering with the fan timer operation (and not
meeting the minimum requirements) will void your warranty.
HEAT PUMP
Meccanica’s heat pumps are not designed for extreme heating or cooling; they are meant to temper the air
within a range. Refer to page 12 of your “Daikin Heat Pump Maintenance Manual” (Appendix 18) for
temperature range values.
Meccanica’s heat pumps will generate heating or cooling, depending upon the set point at the thermostat.
Generally, in warmer temperatures, the heat pumps will provide cooling only; in cooler temperatures, the heat
pumps will provide heating only. For programming information, contact your Property Manager.
Owners are reminded to change their heat pump filters every two months. The “Plumbing Specifications”
section of this Manual delineates the type of filter required per unit. Heat pumps should also be serviced at
regular intervals. Refer to Appendix 18 of this Manual for heat pump servicing requirements. Owners are
responsible for costs associated with filter changes and servicing. f you have additional questions, call either
the Developer or your Property Manager.
41
HEAT PUMP WALL SWITCH
A FocusPro 6000 thermostat has been installed in your home; the operating
manual has been included in Appendix 18. If you require additional information,
contact Honeywell directly at either 001 (480) 353-30320 or visit
www.honeywell.com.
CLEANING
PROGRAMMABLE DIGITAL THERMOSTAT
Follow manufacturer’s directions for cleaning fixtures. Avoid abrasive cleaners; they may remove the product’s
finish. Clean plumbing fixtures with a soft sponge and soapy water (a nonabrasive cleaner or a liquid detergent
is usually recommended by manufacturers) and then dry with a cloth to prevent water spots. To clean a drain
stopper (usually found in bathroom sinks), loosen the nut under the sink at the back, pull out the rod attached
to the plunger and lift the stopper. Clean and return the mechanism to its original position.
CLOGS
Plumbing clogs can be caused when foreign materials (such as: diapers, excessive amounts of toilet paper,
sanitary napkins, dental floss, and children’s toys) are inserted into plumbing lines. Improper garbage disposal
use can also cause plumbing clogs. Always use plenty of cold water when running the disposal/insinkerator.
Allow the water to run 10 - 15 seconds after shutting off the disposal/insinkerator.
Try clearing a clog with the following:


A plumber’s helper (plunger); and/or
Chemical agent (follow directions carefully to avoid personal injury or damage to fixture).
DISPOSAL
For warranty and care information refer to Appendix 18.
DRIPPING FAUCET
A dripping faucet can usually be repaired by:




Shutting off the water at the valve directly under the sink;
Removing the faucet stem;
Changing the washer; and
Reinstalling the faucet stem.
The showerhead is repaired the same way. Replace the washer with another of the same type and size. You
can minimize the frequency of this repair by not using excessive force when turning off your faucet. Please note
some manufacturers do not use rubber washers.
EXTENDED ABSENCE – WATER SHUT OFF
If you plan to be away for an extended period of time, you should shut off the main water supply to your home.
The main shutoff is located behind the shutoff panel – this will be pointed out to you during your initial
orientation. Do not shut off the heating valve. For more information, review the “Water Shut-Off” section below.
42
EXTENDED ABSENCE – P TRAP
A P-trap is the curvey bit of pipe under your sink/tub/shower/toilet. The trap
retains a small amount of water after a fixture is used; the water forms a seal
that prevents sewer gas from passing from the drain pipes back into your
home. Over time, water in the P-trap can evaporate, breaking the seal and
allowing fumes into your home. If you plan to be away for an extended period
of time, appoint someone to enter your home and periodically turn on your
water fixtures.
FREEZING PIPES
Provided the home is heated at a normal level (above 18°C), pipes should not freeze.
LEAKS
If a major plumbing leak occurs:


First turn off the supply of water to the area involved. This may mean shutting off water to the entire
home;
Then contact both the Developer (during the warranty period) and your Property Manager.
PORCELAIN
You can damage porcelain enamel by scratching or hitting it. Do not stand in the bathtub wearing shoes
unless you have placed a protective layer over the bottom of the tub. If you splatter paint onto the porcelain
enamel or surfaces during redecoration, wipe it up immediately. If a spot dries before you notice it, use a
recommended solvent.
SHOWER DIVERTER
The shower must be turned off using the shower handle – not the diverter.
STAINLESS STEEL SINK
Clean stainless steel sinks with soap and water to preserve their luster. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or steel
wool pads; these will damage the finish. Prevent bleach from coming into prolonged contact with the sink as it
can pit the surface. An occasional cleaning with a good stainless steel cleaner will enhance the finish. Rub in
the direction of the polish or grain lines and dry the sink to prevent water spots.
Avoid leaving produce on a stainless steel surface; prolonged contact can stain the finish. Also, avoid using the
sink as a cutting board - sharp knives will gouge the finish.
Local water conditions affect the appearance of stainless steel. A white film can develop on the sink if you
have over-softened water or water with a high concentration of minerals. In hard water areas, a brown surface
stain can form appearing like rust.
TEMPERATURE
Expect temperatures to vary if water is used in more than one location in the home at the exact same time.
TOILET – LOW FLUSH
Low flush toilets may clog more easily; it is recommended that you do not dispose of large amounts of paper or
any feminine products in the toilet.
43
TOILET – TANK CARE
Sharp or heavy objects can chip or crack a toilet. Abnormal pressure against the sides of the tank can also
damage the toilet. It is possible to crack the tank at the points where it is attached to the bowl.
TOILET – RUNNING
To stop running water, check the shut-off float in the tank. You will most likely find it has lifted too high in the
tank, preventing the valve from shutting off completely. In this case, gently bend the float rod down unit it stops
the water at the correct level. The float should be free and not rub the side of the tank or any other parts. Also
check the chain on the flush handle. If it is too tight, it will prevent the rubber stopper at the bottom of the tank
from sealing, resulting in running water.
WASTE MATERIALS
Waste materials (grease, fat and petroleum products) should never be disposed of via the plumbing system
(sinks, insinkerators, toilet, and shower/bath). These materials will build-up in the piping and can significantly
reduce the flow of water through the waste system. These substances are also very detrimental to the
municipal sewage treatment systems.
WATER SHUT-OFF
The water supply to your home can be shut-off at your main shutoff valve. The main water shut-off valves will be
shown to you in your initial orientation; they are generally located in a closet behind access panels. One panel
provides access to the cold water shut off valve; the other panel provides access to the hot water shut off
valve. Ideally the access panels are labelled (though this is not always the case).
Each toilet has a shut-off on the water line below the tank. Each sink has a hot and cold shut-off on the water
lines under the sink.
WATER FLOW RESTRICTIONS
Water flow restrictors are manufactured into most faucets and all showerheads and cannot be removed. We
apologize for any inconvenience this many cause.
WINTERIZING INSTRUCTIONS, WHERE APPLICABLE
If your unit includes an exterior hose bib, outdoor kitchen, BBQ and/or fire pit, you will need to ensure they are
winterized properly prior to freezing temperatures.
44

EXTERIOR HOSE BIB: Turn valve handle to closed position and detach hose from spout. If hose is left
attached, the wall valve cannot drain properly and trapped water may freeze and damage the valve
(and possibly the interior of the home). For more information, refer to Appendix 18.

EXTERIOR FAUCET: Shut off the water source, by turning the hot and cold water shut off valves (under the
sink) 90° perpendicular to the water supply pipes. Fully open the hot and cold taps; then, place a
bucket under the hot and cold water supply lines. Disconnect the supply lines and allow the residual
water to drain into the bucket. Next, open drain valves to protect the lines from freezing water. Remove
and store your faucet indoors. For more information, refer to Appendix 18.

EXTERIOR SINK: Water needs to be drained from the trap under the sink. Place a bucket under the trap;
then, unscrew the cap on the bottom of the trap. Drain the residual water. Cover the sink. Leave the
cap off during the cold season, as this will prevent any moisture/debris that may make its way
through/around the cover and into the sink/trap. Remember to reinstall the cap in the spring, after the
threat of frost has passed, and before you use the sink. Clean the sink according to the manufacturer’s
instructions. For more information, refer to Appendix 18.

EXTERIOR FRIDGE: If the ambient temperature is expected to drop below 50°F, turn off and unplug the
fridge; then, drain all water to prevent freezing damage not covered by warranty. During periods of
non-use, the fridge door must remain open a minimum of 2 inches (5 cm) to prevent formation of mold
and mildew. For more information, refer to Appendix 02.

GAS LINES: Your gas lines do not need to be winterized; that stated, it is important to turn the gas valve
off when the BBQ/fire pit is not in use.

COUNTERTOP(S): Clean and seal countertop(s) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For more
information, refer to Appendix 11.

ELECTRICAL UNITS: Turn off all electrical units via either the circuit breaker or by unplugging appliances
individually.

BBQ: Winterize according to the supplier’s instructions. For more information, refer to Appendix 26.

FIRE PIT: The fire pit must be protected from both rain and snow. Your fire pit is sealed with a penetrating
sealer that provides some resistance to water and staining. It is not water or stain proof. Additional coats
of sealer will help maintain this degree of protection. Remove debris from the fire pit to ensure it is
draining properly. Cover the fire pit with a fitted weather resistant cover. For more information, refer to
Appendix 25.
If your hose bibs/faucets/sinks are not properly winterized, residual water may freeze, expand and crack the
pipes/faucet/sink. Damages may include broken fixtures and plumbing lines, which can lead to a water leak
within your unit. Water may even flow to units below yours. Damages resulting from failure to winterize will not
be covered under the warranty program.
INITIAL ORIENTATION & WARRANTY GUIDELINES
During the initial orientation, we will confirm the fan timer, heat pump/fan coil, wall switch, plumbing fixtures,
disposal and diverter(s) are in acceptable condition and functioning as intended. We confirm that drains are

the cost of removing the clog. This includes toilet, sink, and disposal clogs caused by the owner. After
the first 30 days, the owner will be responsible for correcting clogged drains, at his/her cost.

LEAKS
If a plumbing leak caused by a warrantable item results in drywall or floor covering damage, we will
repair or replace items that were part of the home as originally purchased. We do not make
adjustments for secondary damages (for example, damage to wallpaper, drapes, and personal
belongings). Insurance should cover these items.
THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:


Changes in temperature or the flow of the water itself will cause some noise in the pipes. This is normal
and requires no repair.
For additional warranty and care information, refer to Appendix 18.

PROTECTING YOUR INVESTMENT
No home is maintenance free. Maintaining your home properly will extend the life of your asset. If you are not
comfortable performing routine or specific maintenance, hire a professional. The owner is responsible for all
maintenance costs.
This section describes routine maintenance procedures; it also provides information on home component
warranties.
MANUFACTURER’S CARE & MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES
The products installed in your home come with manufacturer’s warranty and care guidelines – please take the
time to read them. These guidelines form a part of this Manual and are attached hereto as Appendices 01-28.
The information contained in the manufacturer’s literature will not be repeated here.
We make every effort to keep the information in the Manual current. If any detail in our Manual conflicts with
the manufacturer’s information or recommendations, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Remember to activate specific manufacturer’s warranties by completing and mailing in registration cards
(which should be located in the manufacturer’s literature). In some cases, manufacturer’s warranties may
extend beyond the first year; it is in your best interest to know about such coverage.
ALARM SYSTEM, WHERE APPLICABLE
Several Meccanica homes have been pre-wired to accommodate a keypad by the suite entry door. “SmartTek Communications Inc.” installed the rough in; refer to the “Security” section of this Manual for more
information.
The Developer makes no representation that an alarm system will function as intended.
ALUMINUM BARN DOOR, WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 12.
APPLIANCES

steam, hot water, bleach, or abrasive or solvent based cleaners.
CABINETS
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 06. For additional warranty and care tips, please review the
following. Where tips contradict information found in the manufacturer’s literature, please defer to the latter.
57
GRAIN DIFFERENCES
If your home contains wood or wood veneer cabinets, you must expect grain or color differences between
and within the cabinet components due to the natural variations in wood (and the way wood takes stain).
Replacements are not made due to such variations.
HINGES
If hinges catch or drawer glides become sluggish, a small amount of silicone lubricant will improve their
performance.
MOISTURE
Cabinet surfaces can become damaged or warped when moisture generating appliances are placed too
close to the cabinet (such as a crock-pot or kettle). When operating such appliances, place them in a location
that is not directly under a cabinet. Please note: we will not correct damage to cabinets due to heat/moisture
generating appliances.
CABLE
Refer to “Phone/Cable/Data Outlets & Media Centre" for further information.
CONCRETE FLOORS, WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual. For care and maintenance, refer to Appendix 07.
Your concrete floors will have blemishes, pits, discoloration, and ridges. This is in keeping with the industrial
nature of both the product and development (exposed ductwork, aluminum doors etcetera).
It is very important you avoid dropping/dragging anything on/across your concrete floors (for example, knives,
pots, appliances, chairs, furniture). Although the product installed at Meccanica has a PSI rating of 6100(psi), it
can be easily damaged. Your concrete floor is susceptible to dents, chips, and/or scratches. Always use floor
pads under furniture (for example, chairs, tables, couches) and remember if dirt/sand/rocks etcetera gets
caught underneath furniture, you will see abrasions on your floor. Although your concrete floor can be
repaired, the repairs will be noticeable. To recapture the original finish, the entire floor would need to be
mechanically ground and re-coated. It is very important you care for your concrete floor and follow the
regular maintenance instructions as outlined in Appendix 07.
CAULKING
Over time, you may notice gaps in your caulking around plumbing fixtures, windows, backsplashes etcetera.
Maintaining a good seal is important to prevent moisture problems. The Developer will re-caulk reported areas
one time during the “12 Month Corrective Period” (see the “Warranty Description” tab). Subsequent caulking
will be your home maintenance responsibility.
CLOSET SHELVES & ORGANIZERS
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 09.
CONDENSATION
Refer to Appendix 10 and the “Condensation/Ventilation” section of this Manual. It is important you read and
understand this section; if you have any questions, please contact a Meccanica Customer Service
Administrator at (604) 895-0428.
58
COUNTERTOPS
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 11. It is extremely important to review and implement
recommended care requirements. If countertops are not cared for in accordance with Mountain Stonework’s
Guidelines, your warranty will be void.
Stone countertops are a natural product and will have variations in grain and texture. Stone surfaces may even
have fissures and/or tiny pinholes. Grain variations, fissures and tiny pinholes are all acceptable conditions, as
they occur naturally in the formation of stone.
For additional warranty and care tips, please review the following. Where these tips contradict information
found in the manufacturer’s literature, please defer to the latter.
CAULKING
Caulking between the countertop and the wall, along the joint at the backsplash and around the sink may
shrink, leaving a slight gap. Maintaining a good seal in these locations will help keep moisture from reaching
wood under the countertops, thereby reducing the risk that materials will warp. Separation of components
results from normal shrinkage of materials.
The Developer will re-caulk reported areas one time during the “12 Month Corrective Period” (see the
“Warranty Description” tab). Subsequent caulking will be your home maintenance responsibility.
CLEANING
Keeping your stone clean is critical to maintaining the original appearance of your countertop. For cleaning
instructions, refer to the literature included in Appendix 11.
CUTTING BOARD
Use a cutting board to protect your counters when you cut or chop. Protect the counter from heat and hot
pans. If you cannot put your hand on it, do not put it on the counter.
CRACKS VERSUS FISSURES
Cracks that extend from the surface of the slab, into the stone and through the grain will be repaired. All other
cracks will be deemed fissures, and will not be repaired.
MATS
Rubber drain mats can trap moisture beneath them, causing the discoloration of granite. Dry the surface as
needed.
STONE SEALING, WHERE APPLICABLE
For sealing instructions, refer to the literature included in Appendix 11.
COUNTERTOP ISLAND, WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 11 (countertop) and Appendix 19 (stainless steel base).
59
DISPOSAL – FOOD WASTE
For warranty and care information, please refer to the:



“Plumbing System” section of this Manual;
“Warranty Description - 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this Manual; and
Appendix 18.
DOOR & DOOR HARDWARE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 12.
Wood doors are subject to natural characteristics of wood, such as shrinkage and warping. Natural fluctuations
caused by humidity, showers, dishwashers, temperature extremes, etcetera can result in interior doors needing
minor adjustments. To best care for your home’s wooden doors, read the information noted below:
FAILURE TO LATCH
If a door will not latch because of minor settling, you can correct this by making a new opening in the jamb for
the latch plate (re-mortising), and then raising or lowering the plate accordingly.
HINGES
You can remedy a squeaky door hinge by removing the hinge pin and applying a bit of grease to it. Avoid
using oil, as it can gum up or attract dirt. Failing to lubricate hinges will cause them to wear and deposit black
soot on the carpet or flooring.
PANEL SHRINKAGE
Panels of wood doors shrink and expand in response to changes in temperature and humidity. We will repair
split panels that allow light to pass through during the first year.
SHRINKAGE
Use putty, filler, or latex caulk to fill any minor separations that develop at mitered joints in door trim. Follow with
painting. Panels of wood doors shrink and expand in response to changes in temperature and humidity.
Touching up the paint or stain is your home maintenance responsibility.
SLAMMING
Slamming doors may cause damage to doors, jambs and walls. Avoid slamming doors.
STICKING
The most common cause of a sticking door is the natural expansion of lumber caused by changes in humidity.
During a damp season, a door may stick more frequently. Do not plane the door during this time unless it
continues to stick after the weather changes.
Before planning a door, apply a paste wax, a light coat of paraffin, or candle wax to the sticking surface; if this
does not resolve the issue, tighten the screws that hold the door jamb or door frame. If planning is necessary
after these measures, use a sanding sponge to smooth the door and paint the sanded area to seal against
moisture.
60
WARPING
Keep a warped door closed as much as possible; often this returns it to normal.
WEATHER STRIPPING
Weather stripping (sealer around door opening) and exterior door thresholds (bottom plate of door)
occasionally require adjustment or replacement.
LAUNDRY CLOSET DOORS
You are required to keep your laundry closet doors open when your dryer is in use.
**The Developer will not repair doors that are damaged as a result of owner negligence or abuse.
DRYER BOOSTER FAN
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 18.
Dryer booster fan access panels will be noted during your Initial Orientation. Generally, the access panels are
either above the storage room T-bar ceiling or the laundry closet door.
DRYWALL & CEILINGS
During the initial orientation, we confirm that drywall and ceiling surfaces meet industry standards. The “6 foot, 2
second” rule will apply. Briefly, the “6 foot, 2 second” rule states that a drywall/ceiling imperfection will only be
repaired if you can see same from a standing distance of 6 feet and within a time frame of 2 seconds. If not, it is
not a defect. Drywall flaws that are only visible under particular lighting conditions will not be repaired.
It is our experience that drywall surfaces may be damaged during the move in process; as such, please instruct
your movers to use extra caution to prevent same.
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual. Please note:
ONE TIME REPAIRS
Minor drywall cracks and nail pops are not unusual; they are a result of normal shrinkage of materials and are
generally not covered under warranty. The Developer will refer to the “Residential Construction Performance
Guide” (published by the Owner Protection Office – a Branch of BC Housing) when determining whether or not
a particular item is a warrantable defect.
If a warrantable repair is completed, the owner will be responsible for paint touch ups to the affected area.
The owner will also be responsible for wallpaper that has been applied subsequent to closing. It is important to
note that due to the effects of time on paint and wallpaper, as well as possible dye lot variations, touch-ups are
unlikely to match the surrounding area.
If a drywall repair is needed as a result of either poor workmanship (such as blisters in tape), or another
warranty-based repair (such as a plumbing leak), it will be completed by touching up the repaired area with
the same paint that was on the surface when the home was delivered. If more than one-third of the wall is
involved, the Developer will repaint the wall corner to corner. The owner will be responsible for custom paint
colors or wallpaper that has been applied subsequent to closing; touch-up paint may not match surrounding
area.
61
REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR OWNERS
Post the one time repairs, care of drywall/ceiling is the owner’s maintenance responsibility. Most drywall repairs
can be easily made. This work is best done when you redecorate the room. Repair hairline cracks with a coat
of paint. You can repair slightly larger cracks with drywall filling compound. To correct a nail pop, reset the nail
with a hammer and punch. Cover it with 2 or 3 thin coats of drywall filler. When dry, sand the surface with finegrain sanding sponge, and then paint. You can fill indentations caused by sharp objects in the same manner.
Walls and ceilings are easy to maintain: periodically remove dust or cobwebs as part of your normal cleaning
and repaint as needed.
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
For warranty and care information, please refer to the:


FIRE PIT – PENTHOUSE UNITS 1601, 1602, 1605 AND 1606
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 25.
Never leave the fire pit unattended. Wet rocks may pop out of a heated fire pit. Read all manuals prior to
using the fire pit; there are many warning concerning proper use and care of the unit.
FROSTED GLASS SLIDING DOOR (MODAPORTE DOOR), WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 12.
GAS SHUT-OFFS
GAS BARBEQUE SHUT-OFF VALVE, where applicable
Select units are equipped with a gas outlet for the barbeque.
You will find the gas shut-off at the outlet. To turn the gas off, turn
the yellow handle 90° perpendicular to the pipe. Alternatively,
to turn the gas on, turn the yellow handle parallel to the pipe.
We recommend you always turn off the gas when you finish
barbequing. Care must be taken to also ensure barbeques are
shut off after use; failure to do so can result in fire, injury, and
damage.
62
GAS COOKTOP
Your gas shut off is generally located behind a drawer or cupboard to the left or right of your cooktop. To
access the shut off, either remove the drawer below the cooktop or open the cupboard. To shut off the gas,
simply turn the gas valve 90 degrees perpendicular to the pipe. Please be careful not to damage the floor or
countertop when you remove the drawer.
GAS LEAK
If you suspect a gas leak, leave the home and immediately call Fortis BC at their emergency number,
1 (800) 663-9911 or 911.
WARRANTY GUIDELINES
The gas company is responsible for leaks up to the main building meter on the exterior of the building. The
Developer will correct leaks from the meter to the home for a period of two years after the closing date when
the unit is first sold.
HOW TO TURN OFF THE GAS TO YOUR COOKTOP – VIDEO
GLASS PARTITION, WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 06.
HARDWOOD (KENTWOOD POLYURETHANE FINISHED FLOOR), WHERE APPLICABLE
During your initial orientation, the Developer will review the floors and determine if any scratches and gouges
are present. The “6 foot, 2 second” rule will apply. Briefly, the “6 foot, 2 second” rule states that a
gouge/scratch will only be repaired if you can see same from a standing distance of 6 feet, within a time frame
of 2 seconds. If not, it is not a defect.
The Developer will not repair floor damage caused after title is transferred to the owner. It is our experience that
floors can easily be damaged during the move in process. As such, please instruct your movers to use extra
caution to prevent damage.
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual. Where warrantable repairs are required, the replacement product may not match the existing
product’s colour, finish or texture.
63
For care information, refer to Appendix 15. Failure to follow the care instructions will void your flooring warranty.
Here are some additional care tips. Where these tips contradict the manufacturer’s/supplier’s information,
please defer to the latter.
CLEANING
Protect the floor from exposure to liquids, water or other forms of moisture. Sweep or vacuum the floor daily to
keep it clean and free of dust. Ensure your vacuum’s wheels are not damaging the floor. For more thorough
cleaning, use the floor cleaning solution approved by the floor supplier. Do not use any household cleaners,
oils, soaps, waxes, or abrasive materials/scouring agents on your engineered hardwood floor.
FELT TABS
Insert felt protector pads on the feet of furniture and accessories that will be placed directly onto the floor
surface.
FLOOR COLOR CHANGE
Flooring will naturally undergo a change in color as it adjusts to the ambient light conditions of your home
environment. To ensure a uniform change, it is recommended that you do not place area rugs on the new floor
for sixty days after installation. Thereafter, periodic re-arrangement of furniture and area rugs will help ensure
your flooring colors evenly.
HEAT AND HUMIDITY
Environmental conditions must be maintained as specified with a temperature of 65 - 75°F (18 - 24°C) and
humidity at 35 - 55% at all times (Kentwood Product Warranty Care and Maintenance Guide).
REMOVE HIGH HEEL SHOES & TRIM PET’S NAILS
Floors may be damaged by the extreme force caused by lady’s high help shoes (measured in pounds per
square inch (psi)). For example, a car has a load of 28-30 psi, while a 125 pound woman with high heels has a
load of 2000 psi! High heels will cause indentation in flooring; as such, ask your guest to remove her high heels to
protect your floor.
A general rule of thumb is to avoid letting sharp or pointed objects come into contact with your floor. This
includes pets’ nails, which should be trimmed to minimize damage.
HOOD FAN
For warranty and care information, refer to Appendix 02 and the “Appliances” section of this Manual. Please
note the actual CFM output of the hood fan will be less than the specified output outlined in the product
specification brochure. The mechanical engineering design of the building controls the amount of air that is
exhausted from the suite.
HOSE BIB
For warranty and care information, please refer to the:



64
“Plumbing System” section of this Manual;
“24 Month Corrective Period” section of this Manual; and
Appendix 18.
It is imperative hose bibs are winterized every year, before the first frost. Winterizing procedures are outlined in
the “Plumbing System” section of the Manual. If hose bibs are not property winterized, home components may
be damaged. Damages may include broken fixtures and plumbing lines, which can lead to a water leak within
your unit. Water may even flow to units below yours. Damages resulting from failure to winterize will not be
covered under our warranty program.
HOT TUB – PENTHOUSE UNITS 1602 AND 1605
Do not attempt to start the hot tub yourself. If you do, your warranty will be void.
Your hot tub start up is included in your purchase price; contact Rod Boucher at Endless Leisure (604 420 0036)
to book your start up appointment.
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 23.
LIGHTING
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 16.
MEDICINE CABINET
For care information, refer to Appendix 06.
MIRRORS
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this

OUTDOOR KITCHENS – PENTHOUSE UNITS 1601, 1602, 1605 AND 1606
The penthouse outdoor kitchens include a sink, faucet, fridge, countertop, BBQ and fire pit. For warranty
information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this Manual; for care
information, refer to Appendix 28.
Your outdoor kitchen must be winterized every year, before the first frost. Winterizing procedures are outlined in
the “Plumbing System” section of the Manual. If outdoor kitchens are not property winterized, components
may be damaged. Damages may include broken fixtures and plumbing lines, which can lead to a water leak
within your unit. Water may even flow to units below yours. Damages resulting from failure to winterize will not
be covered under our warranty program.
PAINT & STAIN
During your initial orientation, the “6 foot, 2 second” rule will apply. Briefly, the “6 foot, 2 second” rule states that
a paint deficiency will only be repaired if you can see same from a standing distance of 6 feet under normal
lighting conditions, within a time frame of 2 seconds. If not, it is not a defect. You are responsible for all
subsequent touch-ups, except painting we perform as part of another warranty repair.
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 17.
65
Please note paint touch ups made during a warranty visit may:


Be visible under certain lighting conditions; and
Not match the surrounding area. Over time, paint colors fade. Due to the effects of time on paint, as
well as possible dye lot variations, touch-ups are unlikely to match surrounding painted areas.
Here are some additional care tips:
CLEANING
Due to the changes in the formula for paint (such as the elimination of lead to make paints safer), painted
surfaces must be washed gently using mild soap and as little water as possible. Avoid abrasive cleaners,
scouring pads, or scrub brushes. Flat paints show washing marks more easily than gloss paints do. Often better
results come from touching up rather than washing the paint.
EXTERIOR
Exterior painting is considered a common area item controlled and maintained by your strata corporation and
Property Manager.
TOUCH-UPS
When performing paint touch-ups, use a small brush, applying paint only to the damaged spot. Touch-ups may
not match the surrounding area, even if the same paint mix is used. When it is time to repaint a room, prepare
the wall surfaces first by cleaning with a mild soap and water mixture or a reliable cleaning product.
For color code formulas, turn to the “Finish Specifications” section of this Manual. Please note, with exception of
unit 308, codes are calculated per 1 gallon pail. Owners must review paint codes prior to ordering product.
PHONE/CABLE/DATA OUTLETS & MEDIA CENTRE
Your home is equipped with numerous phone and cable outlets. Initiating
service, adding additional outlets or revising outlet locations for decorating
purposes or convenience is the owner’s responsibility.
Your home is also equipped with a media center panel that allows your home’s
media to be accessed via one panel. The panel is generally located in your entry
closet. To initiate service, please contact either Telus at 1 (604) 310-3343, or an
alternate service provider of your choice. Ask the installation technician to
provide an orientation during your service connection appointment.
The Developer will correct faulty outlets that are discovered during the initial
orientation. The Developer will also repair faulty wiring from the outlet service box into the home. The warranty
period is two years, and begins on the closing date when the unit is first sold. From the service box outward,
care of the wiring is the responsibility of the local telephone service company.
PLUMBING
For warranty and care information, please refer to the:



66
“Plumbing System” section of this Manual;
“24 Month Corrective Period” section of this Manual; and
Appendix 18.
RAILINGS, WHERE APPLICABLE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 19.
REMOTE CONTROLS
When you moved in, you will be given two radio frequency remotes that control access to your floor, the main
lobby entry door, the parkade gates and any other door with card access readers. The remotes require no
maintenance, and operate on batteries which will require replacement from time to time. The remotes are
susceptible to damage by moisture and impact, and should be handled gently. For more information, refer to
both Appendix 03 and the “Security” section of this Manual.
SHOWER ENCLOSURES
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 08.
Shower enclosures require minimal care and maintenance. Use a squeegee to remove water after a
bath/shower to keep mineral residue and soap film to a minimum. A coating of wax can also help prevent
build-up of minerals and soap. Use cleaning products suggested by the manufacturer to avoid any damage to
the trim and hardware. Check and touch-up caulking on an as needed basis. Avoid hanging wet towels on
corners of doors – the weight can pull the door out of alignment and cause it to leak.
Meccanica homes feature “frameless shower doors”. Frameless
shower doors are usually heavy glass shower enclosures
featuring glass, metal clips, and continuous metal channels.
These glass panels may be freestanding and resting on a tiled
curb, floor, or bathtub/manufactured shower base; they may
also be full height fixed to the ceiling.
Example of damage that may occur if bath mats
are not used and water is allowed to accumulate
on the floor. This is not a warrantable deficiency.
Water may escape at the door perimeter – this is not
considered a defect. Care should be taken to not only ensure
bath mats are present, but also that any water outside the
enclosure is mopped up after a shower.
SMOKE DETECTORS
For warranty and care information, refer to the:



“Electrical System” section of this Manual;
“24 Month Corrective Period” section of this Manual; and
Appendix 13.
THERMOSTAT
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual; for care information, refer to Appendix 18.
67
TILE
For warranty information, refer to the “Warranty Description – 12 Month Corrective Period” section of this
Manual. We are not responsible for variations in color or discontinued patterns. Variations in grout, tile colour
and texture are to be expected when making repairs.
For care information, refer to Appendix 20. Here are some additional care tips. Where these tips contradict the
manufacturer’s/supplier’s information, defer to the latter.
CLEANING
Dust mop with a clean non-oily dust mop and remove any wet spillage immediately. If damp mopping is
required, use a neutral (ph-7) detergent. Cleaning products containing acid or tri-sodium phosphate should not
be used on tile, terrazzo or marble. Re-condition per maintenance instructions outlined in Appendix 20.
GROUT DISCOLOURATION
Clean grout that becomes yellowed or stained. Contact National Tile directly for information on products that
may be used to clean grout. Refer to the “Trade Contact Information” section of this Manual for contact
numbers.
SEALING GROUT
Sealing grout is your responsibility. Contact National Tile directly for information on products that may be used
to seal grout. Refer to the “Trade Contact Information” section of this Manual for contact numbers.
WINDOWS
In the instance a window is damaged, contact either the Building Manager or the Property Management
Company. They will be able to assist you in remedying same (accidental breakage may be covered by the
strata building insurance). Refer to the “Emergency Procedures” section of this Manual for Property Manager
phone numbers.
For care and maintenance information, refer to Appendix 24. We have included the following care tips; where
these contradict the manufacturer’s/supplier’s information, defer to the latter:
CONDENSATION
Condensation on interior surfaces of the window and frame is the result of high humidity within the home and
low outside temperatures. Condensation that accumulates on the surface of interior windows and frames is not
covered by warranty. Your family’s lifestyle controls the humidity level within your home – review the
“Condensation/Ventilation” section of this Manual for tips on reducing in-suite condensation.
Condensation that accumulates between the panes of glass in dual-glazed windows indicates a broken seal.
We will replace the window if this occurs during the “24 Month Corrective Period”.
SCRATCHES
The Developer will confirm window glass is acceptable during the initial orientation. Minor scratches on
windows can result from delivery, handling, and other construction activities. We will repair/replace windows
that have scratches readily visible from a distance of 10 feet, if same is noted during the initial orientation.
68
SILLS
Window sills in your home are made of ultra-lite. The most common maintenance activity is dusting. Twice a
year, check caulking and touch-up as needed. Protect sills from moisture. If you arrange plants on a still,
include a plastic tray under the pot.
STICKING WINDOWS
Most sliding windows (both vertical and horizontal) are designed for a 10-pound pull. If sticking occurs or
excessive pressure is required to open or close a window, apply a silicone lubricant. This is available at
hardware stores. Avoid petroleum-based products.
TINTING
Applying tinting and/or foil lining to dual pane windows can result in broken windows due to heat build-up.
Some window manufacturers void their warranty if you apply tinting or foil lining. Contact the manufacturer to
check on their current policy before you apply such coatings.
WEEP HOLES
In heavy rains, water may collect in the bottom channel of window frames. Weep holes are provided to allow
excess water to escape to the outside. Keep the bottom window channels and weep holes free of dirt and
debris.
WINTERIZATION
For winterization instructions, refer to the “Plumbing System” section of this Manual. If components are not
winterized as intended, they may become damaged. Damages may include broken fixtures and plumbing
lines, which can lead to a water leak within your unit. Water may even flow to units below yours. Damages
resulting from failure to winterize will not be covered under our warranty program.
69
DO NOT NEGLECT ROUTINE MAINTENACE
Each home requires care administered by the owner from the very first day. Regular maintenance is essential to
maintaining a quality home for a lifetime. Neglecting routine maintenance will not only erode home value, it
may also affect the overall desirability of the community. Most importantly, it can void warranty coverage on
all or part of your home!

SECURITY
For warranty and care information, refer to Appendix 03. We used our best efforts to ensure the “Security” section
is correct; however, we make no representations or guarantees, express or implied, as to the accuracy or
completeness of the same.
Rough-in Only Alarm Systems (where applicable)
Supplied By:
Smart-tek Communications Inc
Rough in locations:

Manufacturer:
Select Engineering Systems (SES)
Supplier:
Smart-tek Communications Inc.
Model:
RTM-PX2
Battery Type:
Internal Lithium Battery CR2032 3V
**Note: Upon possession, you were handed two RF remotes that control access to your parkade gates, and any
other door with card reader access. **
ACCESS AND SECURITY
Radio Frequency Remotes/FOBs
When you moved in, you were given two radio frequency remotes that control access to the main lobby entry
door, the parkade gates and any other door with card access readers. The remotes require no maintenance,
and operate on batteries which will require replacement from time to time. The remotes are susceptible to
damage by moisture and impact, and should be handled gently. For more information, refer to Appendix 03.
Please keep a record of your fob’s serial number(s). If you lose a fob, report the loss immediately to the Property
Manager. This will help ensure the security of the building.
Visitor Intercom System
A visitor intercom system has been installed:



Outside the main lobby entry;
At the parkade entry ramp kiosk; and
Outside the P1 vestibule elevator lobby.
Your guest can communicate with you by scrolling through the electronic intercom directory and dialing your
code. Random codes, which do not identify your apartment, have been chosen for security reasons. Once your
code is dialed, your telephone will ring. When you answer, you will be communicating with your guest. To unlock
a door/open a parkade gate, hit the digit “6” on your telephone. To refuse entry, simply hang up.
If you have a phone with a “call waiting” feature, a distinct tone will be heard when your guest arrives. Pressing
the “flash key” on your phone will automatically put your outside line “on hold” so you can respond to your visitor.
Press the digit “6” to permit entry, or flash the “hook switch” to refuse access. You will then be reconnected to
your “on hold” caller.
86
CAMERA SYSTEM
Pinhole and dome security cameras have been installed on the site. The cameras have been installed at the
following locations:

Main front lobby pointing at the front doors;

Ground Floor Elevator Lobby

Inside main parkade gate pointing at the gate;

Inside inner residential gate point at the gate;

P1, P2 and P3 parkade drive aisles

P1 and P2 storage room vestibules

Level 16 elevator lobby

Main Lobby & Parkade entry phones (pin hole cameras located in the entry phone panel)
A Network Video Recorder (NVR) will record all information on the security cameras. When the NVR is full (500
GB or approximately 4 weeks of information), it will record over the most dated information.
