Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a lot of activity within the building and we wanted to provide some updates on progress.
The fire remediation work has been moving along well and when in the garage (and look up) you may notice the new collars around the various pipes going up thru the ceiling. They appear to come if various colours depending on size. We are installing these as per fire order and they are there to contain any fires. Without the collars, any fire can quickly pass up thru the building.
We have secured the services of a roofing plumber who has already been working on a number of leaking roofs and has found a number of problems which are being corrected. While it is unfortunate that the problems exist it is good news that they are being identified and remediation being done. In the next few weeks, there will be further work carried out on a number of lots combined. We are hopeful that given the identified issues and work scheduled to fix these that we can enter the coming winter ‘dry’.
Priority remains to fix water leaks into various apartments, then we can look excessive leakage in the garages. We are finding that as various leaks are fixed the garages are not getting as much water into them as before. Please do be aware that the garages are not considered ‘dry areas’ and are designed to move water leakage away from the walls. There is some remediation work being done to ensure proper drainage. When you are storing belonging in the garage please ensure they are in waterproof storage containers and definitely don’t have items leaning against the walls. Storage in cardboard boxes is possible (thou not recommended) if they are not against any wall and raised off the floor.
