Dear Residents of Camelot Towers building 981 and 1001;
As you are aware Wilstar Management Ltd. and the shareholders of Camelot Towers, herein referred to as Wilstar, have initiated significant restoration projects including new windows, repairs to concrete slabs and new railings on all balconies, new heating boilers, and new EIFS system. All these projects are being completed for the purpose of maintaining envelope integrity and to meet with property standards as prescribed by the Residential Tenancies Act along with municipal and provincial legislations.
With windows, balconies and EIFS being near complete at building 981 Wilstar will now initiate garage and parking lot rehabilitation. This scope of work will include partial and complete removal of exterior asphalt, waterproofing membrane and earth to evaluate, repair and or replace systems that are designed to maintain structural and envelope integrity of the underground garage. During the garage rehabilitation you are likely to hear sounds of construction such as jackhammering, power saws cutting through metal and concrete, gas or diesel powered generators and heavy machinery, hammering, drilling of metal and concrete as well as communication of the workers. Garage rehabilitation is tentatively scheduled to begin at the end of April 2018 and finish in December 2018.
Please note that all times have been agreed upon by Wilstar and its constructors in good faith however these times may be required to be adjusted due to weather delays, manpower shortages, work permit approvals and other unforeseen circumstances associated with projects of this calibre. In the event of times being materially varied, Wilstar will post notices in the designated tenant communication board located in the main lobby and on our Residents Tab at our website; www.wilstarmanagement.ca we will further utilize the communication module of My Community to email, text or call regarding the aforementioned as well as other updates regarding the property and your tenancy.
In regards to the construction noise of these projects, Wilstar has confirmed with the City of Hamilton, Property Standards Office, that construction noises as mentioned may take place from 7:00 am through to 10:00 pm seven days a week. While it is unlikely for work to be done during all the times permitted in the by-law, it is likely you will hear construction noise between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm Monday to Friday with work being sometimes scheduled on Saturdays to maintain timelines. In an attempt to reduce your exposure to excessive noise Wilstar has constructed a lounge area beside the laundry room that any resident may utilize to escape excessive construction noise during the time of construction. At all other times the lounge area will be locked and will not be available for use, unless otherwise stated.
Wilstar is absolutely committed to providing to all our residents a property that is in a good state of repair which complies with health, safety, housing and maintenance standards which we hope will increase our resident's enjoyment of the property and their pride in our community. Wilstar would also like to extend our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience these projects may cause in the short-term; however we are confident that all residents will appreciate living at a property that has several new improvements such as balcony railings, windows, insulated façade, heating boilers, asphalt throughout, and new landscape design.
We would like to thank all our residents for your co-operation and understanding through this difficult time.
Wilstar Management Ltd.
