Update 12-8-17

The annual fire alarm test will be Thursday, December 143, 2017. It will begin at approximately 9:00 am. The alarm will go off several times that morning and could be on for an extended period. The technicians must enter every unit.

Our pest control service will be here Wednesday, December 20, 2017, at approximately 9 am to service unit on even numbered floors (4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th).

Due to local weather C-Sharpe is off today. They will work tomorrow and possibly Sunday. They will try to finish coating the north balcony wall on the 4th and 3rd floors. That is the only thing outstanding except clean up. They are down to the 7th floor with that process. They hope to be completed with this phase of the project by the end of next week.

North Balcony Update 10-18-17

At present texture is being applied to the 12th floor. As soon as possible they will move to the 11th floor and start texturing. Both floors should be complete by Friday afternoon. They should be able to begin texturing the 10th floor by the end of the week, also.

 

Existing texture removal has been completed on the 5th floor. They should presently be working on the 4th floor. By the end of the week they plan to be finished removing the old texture from all floors. They will then start repairing the concrete making it ready for texture. By the first of next week we will have a better idea of where we stand overall. An update will be posted as soon as we have additional information.

As you can imagine with all this work going on at one time the building is a mess. It cannot be cleaned until all texture work is complete. Once that happens we will being the next faze of the north balcony rework.

We appreciate your understanding as the work has been slower than expected because the material was extremely hard to remove and two hurricanes had to be dealt with.

Look for additional updates next week.

Please remember the office is closed until October 30th. Frank Brown is available for emergencies if needed at the office number (251-980-1735).

Hurricane Update 10-8-17

We are happy to report that we have no damage to share. We spent about 3 days moving balcony furniture and putting all outside furniture up. It seems to have paid off since there was no damage done to the building from flying objects.

Don’t forget that the north balcony project continues. The building is looking pretty rough, but hopefully, when it is complete, the inconvenience will have been worth while. We are running behind schedule, but at least the contractor is still trying to catch up if the bad weather will hold off.

Please don’t expect any additional updates until week after next. We will try to post a new schedule some time that week.  Please limit emails as no responses will be available for the next week.

North Balcony Update 9-28-17

A meeting with C-Sharpe and BE-CI was held today to discuss the north balcony project. As you know, work is about 3 weeks behind the planned schedule. Part of the delay in no one’s fault. At present they are using one blaster and two grinders. By the end of next week they will have 3 to 4 blasters and 4 to 5 grinders. The plan is to work on as many floors as possible o attempt to catch up with the original schedule. This will put them on floors 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 all at the same time. The worse case scenario will be that the project runs around 2 weeks late if there are no additional surprises, but they do not want to put out another schedule until they get all the equipment in place to see if they can meet the original schedule.
