To date I have walked every part of the building with three different aspects of the insurance company. The engineer being the most independent. As you are aware we hired ServPro to bring in machinery to dry out the units from the water intrusion previously reported. Thier method of drying proved to be impressive and much faster than the previous company from Hurrican Matthew. After the initial 49 units found by the insurance adjuster there were 28 additional units found by ServPro with water damage that needed to be dried out. As of October 4, 2017 they will be removing all of thier equipment from the building.
I have received thier reports and made my own assessments of walls that will need to be removed and replaced. Fortunately we will not have to stay closed for these few units. However, 77 units have holes drilled in the walls and these have to be fixed before we can open. I know nobody is a fan of Florida bugs and in big buildings they are hard to eliminate completely. If I leave the openings, we will surely have problems. I know none of you would like these issues so please bear with us while we do the right thing and close them up. Also, the baseboards have to be replaced, night stands have to be reinstalled, some of the murphy beds are too damaged to reuse as well as more of the dressers. All of these will have to be removed from the property before opening. After all of this is done, we must clean!! We have been cleaning all along but as you are aware with construction it is an ongoing process. AND...the resort needs to be set up again. All of your belongings are inside for safekeeping.
We have had daily staff meetings to be sure we are making substantial progress. Though we have quite a few new people on our staff, they are so nice and friendly and willing to serve you in whatever way it takes to make sure you have a wonderful vacation. We are all on the same page and eagerly await the day you can return to your resort. We miss you very much. This is just not the same without you!! Hoping and wishing to open the doors for you soon!! :)
Though we are closed currently on the weekends, we are here today doing the moisture readings in the units. This will allow us to accurately detect which walls must be removed and new insulation and drywall installed. Since we are not waiting to do these tests Monday through Friday this will allow us to get a faster start on the remediation process.
Nobody can accuse us of being slow to repair after a hurricane.
I should have a report by the end of business today and will let everyone know the number of units that will need construction.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay safe.

The Georgian Inn Beach Club has sustained damages from Hurricane Irma. The extent is to be determined. The visible damages are the roof, elevator cap, window soffits, and water intrusion. The building has yet to be inspected by professionals. The roofing company has been contacted. We will know more on the buildings status and exactly how much damage was done once the inspections are complete. We will be closed until further notice. We will be providing information as we receive updates. The staff will be on property 9am - 5pm Monday - Friday and closed on the weekends. There is an active voice recording if you call and would like to leave a message, your call will be returned in the next business day. Thanks to everyone for all the thoughts and prayers sent our way. We ask for patience and understanding during this time as we are working diligently to get the Georgian Inn Back up and running.
