Besides the obvious visible changes, such as the floor and roof replacement, and repairs to the pool liner, quite a bit more was done. With the pool empty for almost two months, our team had a good window of opportunity to do quite a bit of maintenance work.
Obviously one of the most immediate and visible changes, is the replacement of the PVC floor covering with an epoxy coating.
This coating was also installed throughout the hallway between the Tower and the pool area, weight room and roof deck entrance.
Since they had to be removed to do the flooring work, the radiant heating covers were refurbished – work that was all completed in house by our maintenance team. Repairs were also made to the radiant heating pipeline and chases.
The outdoor pool was also subject to a great deal of maintenance. The protective membrane and sealants were repaired, and the electrical line and panel was replaced. Most of the plumbing serving it was also replaced, after it was found to be compromised in several locations, and leaking below the structure.
This of course all started with the budgeted effort to replace roof panels and skylight. The roof was leaking in several locations, and in some places water was getting into the framework and leaking into the commercial units and bike room below, particularly during very heavy weather or snow and ice melt. ALSO, the liner was having very visible problems, and after working with consultants and pool specialists, we are hopeful that problem was solved.
Much more was done that is unseen, mostly in the mechanical room below. The main drain and most of the connecting drain lines were all replaced. The drain work itself was outsourced, but most of the plumbing line work was completed by our own in house plumber.
The jacuzzi was overhauled and the mechanical equipment was all dismantled for maintenance and put back together. Also, our team installed concrete pads underneath all the mechanical equipment to elevate it off the floor, just for some added protection should the location ever experience flooding or leaking in the future.
All in all, quite a bit was accomplished that we hope will make for an excellent experience for all our members.
