2021 RESURFACING

September 1, 2021
 
Greetings Gulf-Side Tamarind Owner!
 
This is Dave Laven from your Board of Directors. Recently Tamarind contracted with Decocrete Services to resurface the external stairways and landings up to each condominium front door on the Gulf-side buildings beginning September 20, 2021, estimated to be completed by October 31, 2021. We plan on resurfacing the Bay-side buildings next year.
 
A team from Decocrete Services will be on site from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Each building requires 1-2 days of grinding per floor. Residents will have limited access to their condominiums but can work with the grinding team to get in and out as needed. The grinding will be noisy and dusty — residents must remove all personal objects and furniture from the stairwells, landings, and cover lanai furniture as needed. On the following ‘coating’ day, residents will not be able to walk on the new surface from early morning until 5:00 p.m., so they must stay in or stay out of their unit during this time. Those on the first floor can exit and enter through their lanai at any time. The project team will post notices of the ‘coating’ day 48 hours in advance on the door of each affected residence.
 
Schedule:
– Buildings B-3, B-4, and B-5 begin September 20, 2021. (2-3 days per building)
– Buildings A-1, A-2, and A-3 begin October 4, 2021 (4-5 days per building)
 
This schedule is very tentative due to weather conditions and the amount of grinding needed in each area. The project team will be available on-site to resolve any issues. Please contact me if you have questions or need assistance. Thanks in advance for your cooperation — we’re trying to keep Tamarind safe and looking great!
 
Sincerely,
Dave Laven

2021 CONSTRUCTION UPDATE & SCHEDULE

July 2, 2021
 
Dear Owner(s):
 
Please read this notice carefully as specific action on your part may be required.
 
Action required!
In order to install the new roof, any A/C unit not currently mounted on a “stand” must be removed and reinstalled on a stand. The attached list provides the evaluation of each A/C unit by Abbott Air. The 5 units highlighted in bold red are required to upgrade their A/C unit since they contain the now banned R-22 refrigerant. Other units designated with a red evaluation are at risk and may not remain operable after removal and reinstallation. Abbott Air has provided group pricing if 20 or more owners choose to upgrade their A/C (low cost estimate). If you choose to have Abbott Air replace your A/C unit:
Please contact AJ at Abbott Air directly at (941) 460-8241 no later than July 30, 2021 and reference the Tamarind Roofing Project. Owners in the B8 Building should contact Abbott
Air no later than July 23rd!

Owners are free to choose any supplier they wish but must ensure that any company they choose can support the roofing project schedule (updates will be provided by e-mail as they become available – given current supply chain issues it would be wise to order new equipment as early as possible).
 
Entry Required
For safety reasons, every unit will need to be accessed in order to remove power from their A/C unit. Notice will be provided by physically placing a note on each door 48 hours in advance. No other notification will be provided.
 
Urgent Schedule Update
Due to inclement weather, we have been informed that the start date for re-roofing the D1 Building has been delayed by 2 weeks; the new start date is estimated at July 26. As previously announced – schedules will continue to be variable dependent on weather, staffing and construction issues – sorry for any inconvenience!
 
Summary
At the June meeting your Board of Directors voted to have the Association cover all costs of removing and reinstalling any A/C unit not currently on a stand. As per past practice, owners are responsible for the cost of installation if they are replacing their A/C and this cost is included in the estimates provided. The roofing project is critical to Tamarind Gulf & Bay and our commitment to this project has already resulted in a savings of over $50,000 in insurance premiums. We appreciate your cooperation and support as we make the improvements necessary to ensure Tamarind’s future!
