To initiate this process, inspections of these locations are scheduled for Thursday and Friday February 9th and 10th, from 9AM to 3PM. Our plumber expects to take about 10 to 15 minutes or less per unit. He will start on the 55th floor around 9am on Thursday and work down to the 43rd Floor by 3pm. On Friday, from the 42nd floor to the 29th. (29 is included, as some connections may need to be accessed from the ceilings.)
These inspections are vital to lay the ground work for the project to begin in March. We assess conditions of plumbing and other fixtures to help plan needs for each unit individually. Then, letters will go to each Owner and resident to help you prepare and know what to expect. We will hold an informational Town Hall Meeting on Thursday March 2nd, at 7PM in the Party Room. At the meeting we will describe the history and purpose of the project, and more specific details for residents, including an opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns you have.
Riser replacements are among the most challenging and invasive projects needed in a building such as Park Tower. Belongings will need to be removed from the impacted locations, and each business day the water will be off from 9AM to as late as 5PM while the risers are being replaced. Thankfully, to date we have replaced 14 of these risers throughout the building, so once we have completed the inspections, we can reasonably set your expectations and answer questions.
Work will generate some dust, be noisy at times, and there will be times you may not have use of faucets and toilets. But if you are prepared, know what to expect, and work in tandem with us, we are confident the project can be a success.
For your convenience, on the back side of this notice is a preliminary calendar of activities. This will be updated after we analyze the inspection results. We will also draft a detailed daily calendar for the project, which will be released before or at the Town Hall Meeting.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation, patience and understanding as we plan to make these improvements. If you have any questions, please e-mail us, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Expected COMPLETION OF RECONSTRUCTION
Major Reconstruction is expected to take place from the 55th floor down to the 30th floor, and be completed by Friday May 12th. More detail will be worked out once inspections are complete and we review the results with the carpenters.
The results of our plumber’s initial inspections as well as any unknown conditions found as our team gets started, may impact our ability to conduct work as scheduled above. But on past riser projects, we have typically proceeded reasonably close to schedule.
