1609 Beatriz Mapelli Full Remodel – Is ready to go
701 Debra Levine
A discussion ensued that due to COVID there would be new release and acknowledgement remodel request forms to complete and contractor rules to abide by. The Board of Directors were still in the developing phase of these rules and forms and should have them soon.
The Board also asked, that at this time due to the final phase of Easy Flow completing its pipe work, and potential elevator work, plus due to COVID only 2 people on the elevator at any time, that we might have to postpone all remodels. We said that we would get back to these individuals just as soon as we had better clarification on dates for these projects.*
Will start back after Labor Day to complete the pipe project on the 04 stack. They will be required to follow all of El Mirador’s COVID Rules and Regulations. They expect a completion date of 8 weeks.
COR Security submitted two bids for the Boards review
Tyssenkrupp Elevator (McLain Bowman)
Mr., McLain spoke by phone and gave a general overview of replacing and modernizing our elevators. He said that it would be a 12-16-week project and that during that time we would be down to one working elevator, which will definitely create an impact on the residents in the building. Mr. McLain said that once he walks the building, he will prepare a proposal for us.
Besides Tyssenkrupp Rafael is acquiring 2 additional bids for the elevator replacement/modernization project.
There was a general discussion that perhaps remodels should be put on hold during the elevator replacement time frame, Easy Flow completion of their project and COVID mandate of only 2 people per elevator. Beatriz Mapelli agreed to put her remodel on hold for a short time being. We will get
back to her once we have definite dates on the elevator modernization time frame*
