WORK PROJECTS AT COMPLEX
Islander on the Beach complex:
Complex Work Projects:
From time to time, as with all multi-dwelling complexes with associations, work takes place that owners aren't aware of and have no control over. We shall not be held liable for work taking place around the complex at any given time. If there is work that we know about ahead of time, we will be sure to let guests know if that work will effect this condo or surrounding condos, if possible and if we are notified timely. Sometimes, that is not the case and we are surprised to hear some form of repair or work is taking place. By reserving this unit and agreeing to terms and conditions with the reservation, you understand we will not be held liable for those types of situations and no refund or change of room will be made, unless the type of work materially impacts the specific unit you are staying in to make it inhabitable.
Lanai/patio Spalling Work:
The crew will be working from 8am-5pm during weekdays only. Spalling repairs consist of drilling out old rebar from lanai (patio), installing new rebar, and then new cement will be poured. The GM's note is as follows:
After conducting inspections throughout the property, several lanais were found to possibly be affected by spalling damage. This type of repair work will require specific units in various buildings to be closed at various times during a five week period beginning on April 1, 2022 through April 29, 2022. Please note that the duration of this repair project is an estimate and could be extended depending on weather and the severity of the repair. All owners/guests should be aware that spalling work will be taking place during this time period. Therefore, activity, dust and noise levels will be higher than normal on property.
The units being worked on during this particular project are: 118, 123, 130, 133, 134, 144, 156, 205, 209, 215, 217, 218, 221, 222, 223, 229, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234, 235, 237, 244, 246, 249, 251, 252, 254, 256, 258, 259, 263, 265, 317, 318, 319, 320, 322, 323, 328, 331, 332, 333, 336, 337, 338, 339, 342, 343, 344, 349, 350, 351, 352, 354, 355, 356, 358, 359, 361, and 365.
The two direct oceanfront buildings will be worked on first, starting April 1 and should last approximately two weeks. The rest of the buildings at the complex will commence approximately 2 weeks later and should last approximately 2 to 3 weeks.
Bike Path Project:
A new bike path that will stretch from the south side of the Molokai Building around to the front and along the front of the Kauai and Niihau Buildings (between ocean and those direct oceanfront buildings) will replace the existing walking path. This work may be loud at times and could disrupt guest experience during daytime hours.
Bike Path Project: (updated 3/10/21):
The Board continues to work with the County of Kauai on the bike path planning from the proposed easement between the Islander on the Beach and Kauai Shores to potential privacy fences and landscaping and will take the place of the current walkway which wraps around to the front of the complex between the two oceanfront buildings (Kauai and Niihau) and the ocean. The tentative project start date of 3/28/22 and will last 2 months and could be shorter or longer, dependent on weather, permitting, etc.
Kauai Kailani complex:
From Board member: the shoreline at KK has been further damaged from erosion after the portion at the north end of the temporary shoreline protection feature had begun coming loose after a severe storm sometime around Christmas.
The section did eventually detach which over the past weeks has resulted in loss of several more feet of KK property behind it. At the request of the AOUO, management erected a safety fence to keep people away from the edge and are putting in sandbags. It will likely be a few weeks before the state issues a new permit with which to begin repair.
As yet it doesn't affect use of the pool or access to the beach on Waipouli, but we may wanted to let you know there has been storm damage at the property. Once we have a start date for repair work I'll let you know so guests may be notified of that as well.
Kauai Beach Villas Complex (note, our E building will not be affected):
Building G and H Exterior Lanai and Stairwell Repair Notice
Kauai Beach Villas will be performing an exterior lanai and stairwell repair project on Buildings G and H. The project is expected to begin in April 2021 and will take 12 months to complete. Attached is the overall projected schedule for the Building G and H project. The project will begin on Building G. Once the work is completed at building G, the work will then proceed to building H.
The scope of work to be performed on the lanais at buildings G and H are as follows:
Lanais and Stairwells
Concrete Spall Repair
Post Tension Cable Repair
Lanai and Stairwell Waterproofing Installation
Lanai Railing Replacement
Painting of All Lanai and Stairwell Surfaces
Painting of Roof Soffit on Entire Building
The work will be performed from the exterior of the building by means of scaffolding systems that will be built on the ground and extend up to the third- floor lanais. The scaffolding will be positioned directly in front of the unit lanais at the impacted unit stacks for the duration of the work being performed at those selected units.
During the project, there will be periodic loud jackhammering, grinding and sand blasting noises during work hours. To assist with noise reduction, please keep your windows and doors closed during work hours.
