HPN ELEVATOR RENOVATION AND UPGRADE PROJECT COMPLETE!

CURRENT STATUS: The HPN BOD is pleased to advise that all three elevators have passed their inspection tests and are back in service.

All of the on-site work is now complete. All three elevator cabs have been upgraded, and the electrical and mechanical infrastructure that makes the elevators work has been replaced, upgraded and/or renovated. The Otis implementation team has completed all of its contractual responsibilities and they have moved on to their next project.

Contractually the Project is now “Substantially Complete”; all that remains is for our Project Manager, MBA’s Mark Belcher, to go through the Completion Punch List and advise the Board that final acceptance can be made. We expect this process to be completed by Friday, April 22nd. With final acceptance the BOD will authorize the Bank of Ocean City to release the remaining 10% retainage that has been held back until the Project was 100% complete.

This Project has been the most expensive Capital Project undertaken in the 44 years since the building was constructed in 1972. The HPN BOD is proud of the fact that we, as your elected management team, had the foresight three years ago to not only make the difficult decision to move forward with this nearly $700,000 Capital Project, but the collective ability and skill-sets to put a team in place that ensured the Project came in on schedule and under budget! The final result is three state-of-the-art elevators with upgraded interiors and features.

The Board thanks you and your guests for your patience and understanding over the past 7 months, and we trust that you are as delighted with the appearance and performance of these new Elevators as we are.

UPDATE! Fire Alarm and Emergency Generator Testing

As part of the Elevator Modernization, Otis has scheduled the Final State Inspection and testing of the elevators to be conducted on

WHEN:  Thursday April 14th

During this inspection, the Fire Alarm and Emergency power will be tested. These tests will sound the Alarms throughout the building and Elevator service will be interrupted periodically.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Sincerely,
Tom Downey HPN/MGR

NOTICE: Fire Alarm Testing - 3/15/16

WHEN: Tuesday, March 15th

As required by the Town of Ocean City, I have scheduled a follow up test of the building’s Fire Alarm and evacuation systems to be conducted on Tuesday, March 15th. Alarms will be sounding throughout the day.

Sincerely,
Tom Downey  HPN/MGR

NOTICE: HPN Elevator Renovation and Upgrade Project

CURRENT STATUS:

Renovation and Upgrade of Cars #1 and #2 is now complete and both have been returned to service

HPN’s contract with Otis Elevator remains on schedule and on budget. With two crews on-site since October all aspects of the planned renovation and upgrade of the initial two cars has proceeded as planned. HPN’s Project Manager Michael Blades (MBA) has inspected and signed off on these installations, all required local and state safety inspections have been passed, and interim certificates of occupancy have been issued.

The Otis implementation team has now taken Car #3 out of service as planned. Although #3 is not officially due to be completed until early April it appears at this time that this Car may be returned to service by mid-March.

IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING NEW CABS

We hope you will agree that the new elevator cab design and finishes are an attractive upgrade to HPN. In an effort to help maintain their appearance we would ask all owners to make sure that your contractors and furniture delivery employees arrange with the HPN office ahead of time to have the protective blankets installed in the cab. Owners are subject to a $500 fine plus the cost of repair if their contractor/vendor damages the cab.

HPN Elevator Renovation and Upgrade Project Update

CURRENT STATUS: Otis Elevator Installation Crew is on-site and work has begun on two elevators.

Otis Elevator has spent the past 5 months completing all of the preliminary work needed before actual start of the installation. This included finalization of all design elements and systems architecture, as well as the specification and ordering of long-lead parts and components.

On Friday, October 2nd, the formal Project Kick-off meeting was held at HPN. Attendees included the HPN Board, HPN Property Manager Tom Downey, Project and Crew managers from Otis, and the account manager from our consulting firm Michael Blades (MBA). All aspects of the project implementation were reviewed and discussed, and the Project Implementation timeline was updated.
