Re-Pipe and Construction
As everyone knows the big thing on the horizon for DOMA is the construction defect repairs. Most of the repairs are related to the replacement of the waste and water pipe. So far, the plans for these waste and water line repairs have been drawn and submitted to the City. Our Engineer is presently working through corrections for the issuance of the permit.
In the meantime, AMA is scheduling unit walks to determine the least damaging way to replace the pipes and organize the repair. Please be sure to make your appointment with AMA if you have not already, they MUST get in every unit before this work begins.
AMA is also trying to secure parking spots for material storage and parking for workers. This will help the speed up the work and be to everyone’s benefit. If you have a spot you can spare please get in touch with AMA and work out an arrangement. There is compensation available. Also, if your spot is designated as a worker spot, they will only be using this during working hours. The contact for AMA re-pipe is James Hunter his number is 562-541-5649
The repairs will start on all the piping in the garage and will begin in January. The garage work is expected to take around 3 months. Once complete they will be going up each “stack” of the plumbing and begin in the Lofts building.
The next Town Hall meeting is tentatively scheduled for Dec 5 th .
Re-Pipe and Construction
Besides the re-pipe there are also other items identified as Construction Defect that are part of the repairs, we will do from the settlement proceeds. These items will start once we have either completed the re piping or at the same time as the re pipe if the repairs can be scheduled so there is no interference between the two contractors. These repairs haven’t been scheduled yet. The repairs and unit numbers are in some basic categories:
