Hurricane IAN Restoration

joe

Yesterday was a successful day with our indoor pool inspection going well. With the findings we went ahead, and acid washed it, and are planning to fill today. The main parking lot got cleaned, but we are holding off occupying until we can broom it and walk it to carefully inspect for broken glass that could be imbedded in the asphalt plus we have the storage container for our elevator remodel scheduled for Thursday. This way we don't have to move cars again. We now have access to the beach with the center steps getting re-built. We are hoping to have the ramp completed by weekend. Unfortunately, our door leading to the beach at the vending area was destroyed and lead time on replacement is approximately 6 weeks. The beach will have to be accessed by luggage cart area. Also, we have some glass panels that were broken, and these as well will need replacing.

Today the plan is to continue cleaning up parking lot as well as moving heavily on the deck restoration. Our indoor pool and spa heaters are scheduled for today as well. Also, our outdoor pool needs to be acid washed, inspected, and re-filled. Our office still has dehumidifiers and fans running due to water intrusion, and that's why it is closed to entry. We still have an awful lot of moving parts going on both large and small parts, but we feel confident that a solid determination can still be made by weeks end for operation status.

Hurricane IAN Cleanup

joe

Yesterday was a very productive day with our parking lot across the street getting cleaned, and our pools having sea water extracted from them as well as removable windows have been re-installed. Also all dehumidifiers and fans have been removed from units due to normal levels. All of our contractors that got us back up and running from Hurricane Mathew are involved with Hurricane IAN restoration. Our deck is being worked on as well, and will continue until it is completed.

Todays plan is to inspect pools for any damage now that the sea mud has been removed, and if no problems are detected we will begin acid washing the pools for re-fill in the next couple of days. Our pool and spa heaters were damaged by the surge and debris that needs to be cleaned up and unfortunately will have to be replaced. The main parking lot will be cleaned as well today. We anticipate that we should be able to to make a determination by weeks end for the status of operation if everything remains moving forward at the success rate it is.

Thank you for your support,

Post Hurricane IAN

joe

Day after Hurricane IAN was very busy as expected. Our restoration team was here first thing in the morning assisting us cleaning up ground floor areas. Then went up into the building to visually and with moisture detectors to inspect each unit. Very fortunately only finding the normal, and minimal water intrusions. There no need to pull back carpeting in any unit. Just installed a few fans and dehumidifiers through the building. 

We sustained structural damage to our deck in a few areas which our contractor looked over. We lost access to the beach due to surge. Our plan is to have at least access to the beach by end of this week. Our removable indoor pool windows were removed and worked as planned, but we didn't expect such a surge that took out some of the older windows including door directly to beach that were not affected by Hurricane Mathew. IAN was worse, and yes our pools and spa were breached. We will have contractors here Monday morning to remove sand and debris from both parking lots as well as bringing a truck to empty pools for cleanup.  We have one elevator up and running as of Saturday evening. The police are not allowing any traffic on North Waccamaw until DOT has all the sand that was from surge removed.

There are an awful lot of moving parts involved in a major cleanup as this, and there will be a lot of contractors here over the next week including getting setup for waterproofing the east side and elevator remodel. That is the reason why we have decided it best to close the building to all except owners for this week. We have been in touch with all rental agencies with closing notices. This could have been a lot worse folks, and your staff, management company and Board are very much involved in cleanup restoration. Stay tuned to this sight for updates, because we're not sitting in the office waiting for your calls.

Thank you for your support and understanding

Hurricane IAN

Good morning everyone,

Atalaya took a heavy hit from Hurricane IAN with extensive water damage on the ground level. We will have restoration teams on site this morning to begin cleanup as well as post storm inspection of units. We will update on this site units with damage, and should have that to report by end of day if not, no later than tomorrow. Please understand we are in strong recovery mode so speaking on the phone will be limited. We are dedicated to getting Atalaya back to business as usual as soon as possible. Here is where we will be communicating with you.

Thank you

Atalaya Towers team and Board of Directors

Update on elevator project

joe

As we draw closer to the starting time of the elevator project we feel that the best thing to do with our electrician was to have him get started on his portion of the project. If we wait until the actual project with one car active only it would be tied up with electricians running wiring in shaft which means the car will be tied up for owners and guests, and that means no elevator. So we have discussed with electricians to begin in September, and that involves them using one of our two running cars at this time to run their cable and drill hole in between our two cars on each corridor from top of building to the lobby. This work is crucial for the heat sensors required by law that will prevent the cars from stopping on a floor with excessive heat registering during a fire. These devices will be installed by our fire alarm contractor.

We're just trying to think of things to help move things along literally when the project begins, and maintain as much normalcy as possible.

Please stay tuned to this website for future updates

We feel that the more information, the smoother the project with little as possible inconveniences.

Thank you for your understanding
