IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

 

Dear Windy Village Homeowner,

 

As the renovation project has progressed, the extent of the structural deficiencies related to the balcony walkways have become progressively more concerning.   Our structural engineer visited the campus this week and concluded (see letter posted on the RAM website www.ramresorts.com)  that “the balcony walkways should no longer support resident traffic, since there is a possibility of a collapse that could result in injury or death”.

Due to the serious nature of our structural engineer’s warning, your Board has no choice but to adopt the following policy for the safety of all the members, and the property as a whole:

Effective immediately, and until further notice, for the safety of all members, their guests and invitees, you are instructed to discontinue the use of your property for any purpose whatsoever, until you are informed by your Board that it has been deemed safe to do otherwise. 

 

Furthermore, effective immediately:

 

THE CAMPUS IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED TO ALL MEMBERS, THEIR GUESTS, AND INVITEES.

The Board recognizes that this change in the renovation’s course of action will likely create a hardship for some of the members.  Notwithstanding this matter, the Board, in the best interest of its members and the property as a whole, must faithfully execute the safety recommendations of the professional engineers engaged to guide Windy Village through its renovation process.

The seriousness in which your Board is engaged in managing this process cannot be overstated.  You will be updated throughout the repair process. 

Thank you again for your prompt attention to this matter.

Your Board of Directors

You are welcome to visit and inspect the renovation progress if you wish HOWEVER…for your personal safety

and protection, as well as our responsibility to adhere to DHEC’s restrictions, we have to insist that you do not attempt to

visit the campus work site without proper supervision. Please make an appointment through the RAM office if you desire

to review the renovation’s progress.

 

Your safety is of paramount importance to the Board. Thank you for your attention to and compliance with this URGENT SAFETY NOTICE.

Dear Windy Village Homeowner,

 

Your Board of Directors wishes to update you on matters which are affecting you and your property at this time.  Please be advised of the following:

The repairs to the common elements have been more extensive than originally anticipated. Numerous structural components within the interior of the buildings have been determined to be defective and are requiring replacement or repair.

Unfortunately, determining the extent of the defective structural components within each of the condominiums requires access to the interior of the condominiums and the removal of some of flooring and sheetrock in the suspected defective areas of the respective condominium.  Furniture will be moved to the non-affected interior areas of the condominiums.  If you have any articles or objects of value, please provide RAM with a listing of those items in order that we may inventory them accordingly. 

In addition, the exterior covering of the buildings needs to be repaired.  The roofing system will need to be replaced to properly repel and evacuate any water from the roof.  Commercial 6-inch rain gutters will be added to accept the water from the roof and direct it away from the building.  Not addressing the deficiencies of the buildings’ roofing systems will subject the condominiums to continued water damage which the current project is endeavoring to repair.

Please use the following links to view pictures of the buildings’ deficiencies for your review.

Due to the additional repair requirements, it now appears that the building will be under construction until September 2021.

The cost of these additional repairs is currently being finalized.  The Board will update you as this information becomes available.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact RAM by phone at (843) 449-2204 ext. 4091 or email at dee@ramresorts.com.

 

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Dear Windy Village Homeowner,

 

Your Board of Directors wishes to update you on matters which are affecting you and your property at this time.  Please be advised of the following:

Preparation and staging for the renovation project commenced on November 16, 2020.  On the website, you may observe pictures of the process as it has unfolded.  You will note that the damages to certain areas of the buildings are considerable. As a result of the seriousness of these construction deficiencies, it is the opinion of the management of Green Design and Consultants, Inc. as well as Mr. Steve Powell, P.E. the HOA’s engineer, that a change in the renovation plan is not only required but necessary to provide for the safety and security of the buildings and individuals who may be present on the campus during the renovation process.  The Board concurs with the opinions of the professionals who have been engaged to address Windy’s construction deficiencies and has determined that the following scheduling changes are warranted.

Due to the extent of these deficiencies, the original approach is no longer viable or advisable.  The revised renovation plan calls for a floor by floor approach.  Commencing December 4th, 2020, all condos in stacks 1 – 3 will be closed for the necessary renovations to the street side deficiencies ONLY.  It is anticipated that this closure will require four to five, (4 - 5), weeks to be complete on the front side of the building.  During this period the condos in stacks 4 – 7 will be available for use by the owners.  After the street side renovations have been completed on the 1 – 3 stacks, the same street side renovation process will begin on the 4 – 7 stacks.  This approach is of course subject to change as to any circumstances that may present themselves at that time.  Please see the revised repair schedule above.

During the entire renovation process ALL CONDO OWNERS ARE HEREBY DIRECTED TO NOT ALLOW ANYONE ON THEIR BALCONIES due to the safety concerns expressed by the management of Green Design and Consultants, Inc. as well as Mr. Steve Powell, P.E. the HOA’s engineer.  Please remove any furniture and decorations from your balcony.  Furthermore: owners and guests will not be able to occupy your condo during your building's stacks 1 - 3 or stacks 4 – 7 respective repair process.

The Board recognizes that this change in the renovation schedule will likely create a hardship for some of the members.  Notwithstanding this matter, the Board must elect a modification to the existing renovation plan which will allow the construction process to proceed in a professionally competent manner as required under the circumstances and also allow for the greatest degree of safety to be employed for all of the individuals who may be on the campus during the renovation period. 

The seriousness which your Board is engaged in managing this process cannot be overstated.  You will be updated throughout the repair process. 

 

Thank you again for your prompt attention to this matter.

Your Board of Directors
