HALE MAHINA BEACH RESORT:  Individual owner unit remodels

  • Unit B202 Unit remodel 9/9/19 x 6 weeks 

 

HOLOLANI BEACH RESORT:  Resort Improvements & Shoreline Repairs

Spalling repairs and painting: July thru August  end of November 2019

 

Update from Hololani Resident Manager 8/13/19: The work got off to a slow start due to technical issues and bad weather, so we're probably a week or two behind schedule. So, Building A was expected to take approximately two months from July 15th to about September 15th and due to the delays we're hoping to have Building A completed around September 30. Then Building B should take about 2 months, starting around October 1st going until November 30th. All of these dates are estimates, due to the unpredictability of the weather.

 Update from Hololani Resident Manager 8/2/19: Painting project has been started on Building A.  So far the carpeting has been removed from the hallways in preparation of the application of the waterproofing coating.  Currently power washing is taking place in preparation for painting, starting at the far north end of the building.  Work is slow due to the current weather conditions.  

Update from Hololani Resident Manger 6/4/19: Kawikas Painting plans to arrive on property July 15th and spend the first week (July 15-19) mobilizing equipment, covering railings, setting up rigging on the North facing side of Building A. Owners and guests will not be able to use the small lanais on that "04" stack facing North that week, as prep and painting will be taking place that week.

Then on or about August 5th-9th, the prep and painting will begin on the Building "A", "04" stack on the side facing the ocean. They will begin on the 8th floor and work down the "04" stack to the 1st floor. Owners and guests will not be able to use their ocean facing lanais on the Building "A", "04" stack during that week.

Then, they will repeat the process starting on the 8th floor of the "03" stack. Each stack will require a week to complete. They will continue painting each stack accordingly, each stack taking about a week. 

During this period, from July 15th-August 9th, Kawikas will be removing the carpets on the East facing exterior walkways of Building "A" and grinding old adhesive, repairing cracks, etc. 

Prepping and painting of the West facing side of Building "A" will take about one month. 

That is as far out as Kawikas wants to advance a project Schedule. With their input I will provide additional schedules as the project proceeds. During the entire project, owners and guests can expect to see workmen, scaffolding, some grinding sound, etc., depending on how many cracks and spalling repairs are required. Removal and prepping of the exterior walkways will create some inconvenience and noise during July-22-August 9th, but will not prevent owners and guests from accessing their unit. Additional updates will be provided as work progresses

(Original Notice Received 2/8/19): Beginning on July 15th, spalling repairs (places where weather has caused visible damage to the building) and painting will begin on Building “A”. When Building “A” is finished they will start on Building “B”. The entire project will take approximately 4 months. When the painting is completed, new carpeting will be installed on the exterior walkways on each floor. The painting project should have minimal impact on owners and guests.

>There is no beach access on the property and resort staff strongly recommends you use an alternative beach access within walking distance for most.

KAHANA REEF:  Sea Wall Repair Project = 3 Phases over 3 years June 2018 - Oct 2020, Plumbing Project &  Elevator Refurbishment

  • Phase 1 2018 - COMPLETE  
  • Phase 2 2019 - June 1 to approx. Nov. of 2019 (4-5 month project; start date pending SMA approval- start date delay notice received 3/10/19)
  • Phase 3 2020 - April thru Oct of 2020

The sea wall repair will begin with the area in front of the pool. The south parking lot will be the staging and access area for repair of the section fronting the pool. The pool may or may not be off limits during portions of this repair.

Update posted 7/3/19: 

Summary of the seawall project as of 6/28/2019 - The contractor will dig and remove concrete to the 4-5 foot level. The digging has to stay above high tide mark. They will continue to work and chip away at the wall to get the wall prepped to receive the new vertical wall that will attach to it. Once this is completed for the entire length, they will start at the north end for the deep digs. They will shore up the surrounding areas in preparation for the deep digs. They will do the deep digs in small sections to limit the exposure of the wall. (dig, fill, dig, fill, until they finish the entire length).

It is anticipated that the rest of the prep to the 4-5 foot level will be completed in another 3-4 weeks. Then the shoring and deep digs will begin. The contractor has a sheet pile driver (new piece of equipment) that will make easier work of the deep dig task; much faster, safer and efficient than how things were done last phase.

To speed the entire process, the contractor has been given permission to start at 7:30am M-F. They were also given permission to work on Saturdays. The AOAO will do it's best to send out an email notice a day in advance when a Saturday work day is planned. Once the deep digs begin, the work hours and days will be dictated by low tide calendar.

Update 6/17/19:

Repair of Phase 2 has begun. The contractor had made some last minute changes. Repair staging and access will remain at the south end of the complex. The repair is beginning at the north end of Phase 2 and moving south, then tying into Phase 1.  There is a sink hole in Phase 3 area of the yard. We are watching it closely. While the contractor and equipment are on site, we will have a temporary repair done using the same method as the south end's temporary repair with geofabric and sand bags. This repair may use the north end for access.  Updates will continue. Last minute changes and unexpected events should be expected. Thank you for reminding your guests that the construction area is off limits and to please respect the areas that are cordoned off.

The standard work week is Monday through Friday, 8am-4pm. As we have learned from Phase 1, this is subject to change. Portions of the repair must be done when the tides are most favorable (low). This will alter some work days and times for repair to early mornings and Saturdays. We will do our best to notify you when repair times/days fall outside of the standard schedule however please know now that there is no guarantee of advance notice.

>Plumbing Project (Updated 6/28/19 and 8/5/19):

The HOA at Kahana Reef is overseeing a plumbing project starting in late May through around June 20th at Kahana Reef.   Assessments and work will be performed on the “4 Stack” starting today and moving into next week. Again, all owners/property management have been notified of the ongoing work.

The plumbing project continues with the 03/04 stacks starting September 4th and ending September 19th. This will directly effect units 103, 203, 303, 403 and 104, 204, 304 and 404. Unit 104 will also be remodeling their bathroom which may cause some additional noise.  Construction noise may effect all surrounding units to some degree. Thank you for your understanding as we work towards completing the plumbing project.

>Elevator Refurbishment Project: (Notice received 6/26/19; Updated 8/5/19):

Both elevators are earmarked as a Reserves Project to be refurbished over the next year, starting with the south elevator. 

Update 8/5/19: 

Refurbishing work has begun on the south elevator and should be completed by approximately September 20th. It is estimated that the North elevator refurbishing will begin approximately September 23rd and end sometime around November 30, 2019. Please know these dates are only estimates. We will continue to update you as information changes.

MAUI SANDS:  Sea Wall repairs + shoreline closures


Update from Maui Sands 8/16/19: The work on the sea wall in front of building 5 is winding down, with quiet work occuring , the fence in front of the downstairs lanais removed.  This repair work shoudl be completed by next week 8/23.  Next year, Phase 2, the sea wall work in front of Building 4 will start May 1, 2020 pending financing for the work.  Phase 2 is estimated to take 4-5 months with an ETA of completion Oct 2020.  This phase will also including installing a new stairway area between buildings 4 and 5. 

Update from Maui Sands 7/30/19: The sea wall work in front of the 5 building is expected to be completed by the end of Aug 2019.  Plans are to stop work and start working again next year April 2020 in front of the 4 Building.

>Additional Details from the Resident Manager and AOAO dated 1/6/19 and updated 3/19/19: Seawall repair work will begin on the south side (building 5) - of the property (Oceanside). 

We just received a notice that the seawall repair work will be starting on April 15, 2019.   If all goes well, the contractor will be working Mondays through Fridays during the work day.  Because the tides and weather are iffy, there will most likely be days that they are not working.

  • Construction will start at the south end of building 5. 
  • Guests WILL have access to grills 
  • There is a temporary observation deck which you will have access to, and stairs on the north side of building 4 which may require a bit of a walk around the construction staging area.
  • There WILL be ocean access during working hours.

>Notice from Maui Sands Board of Directors:

We understand that this is going to be a disruption for a great length of time. But we are trying to do everything we can to ensure that it is a smooth process with as few hiccups as possible.  We are giving you these timelines and preliminary information to ensure that if you have a vacation rental property you will have enough lead time to make your guests aware.

We are presently working on the specifics of the staging area and at this point it looks like the grassy area between the shuffleboard/BBQ and building five as well as the area with the cement pad in front of the viewing deck, will be the staging area.  We are very limited for turnaround space and this is the only large area that we can use. Parking lots are not an option. Also access for equipment will come in from the North parking lot and enter the property between buildings two and three, where there will be a safety/dust barrier that then runs down towards the staging area and seawall. 

 >Notice dated 2/13/18: Due to ongoing shoreline erosion issues the sunset deck and the stairs next to it have been closed indefinitely.  There is a stairway to ocean access at the north end of Building #4.

POHAILANI  (Notice Dated 6/8/19):

The adjacent Kahana Reef Resort will be starting the second phase of their seawall work beginning next week June 10, 2019. In the first week they will be mobilizing the job, and beginning the actual construction on the wall the following week. They will be bringing equipment and material through the south end of their property, but the actual work will be done further north on their property as they have completed the work adjacent to our property in phase 1. They will be working from their pool area north, and are expected to be working on this project for the next 3 to 4 months. Their scope of work as I understand it is they will be excavating behind their existing wall and adding concrete fortifications to the existing wall from behind and adding a concrete cap.  

 Sometime during this period they will also be coming onto our property to fill our sinkholes created this last winter. We do not have a date for this work at this time.

The full scope of the pool deck work is in the scheduling phase. The project start date and the pool closing date is September 23rd. The pool will reopen by October 20th

The phases of work are: Removal of the current surface down to a clean cement surface and repair of the pool bottom fitting. This phase consists of several large surface grinding machines making a lot of noise and creating dust. The anticipated length of this phase is less than 10 days. 

The next phase consists of repairing the pool bottom fitting. The preparation of the clean deck surface for installation of the new surface. The preparation includes crack repair and filling low spots in the cement deck. This work will consist of a keeping the pool closed, a moderate amount of noise, and some dust. The length of time is solely dependent on the current condition of the cement under the current coverage. This phase will start on completed removal sections before the first phase completes.  

The final phase consists of applying the surface material. The timing of this phase is flexible. Completion not mandatory. Management of the timing in this phase guarantees work will stop on time in this phase.

>Commercial Building Project Update as of 7/25/19: 

Planning for the rebuild of the porte cochere, the lobby, the walkway to the high-rise and the separate building housing the health club which were destroyed in a fire, is underway. Due to the proximity to the ocean, that process has been complex and time consuming. The permitting is now essentially complete and the project was put out to bid and a bid has been accepted. 

The project is currently scheduled to begin sometime after September 1st of this year. The actual start date is dependent on final government approvals, contractor schedules and availability of materials, however this page will be updated on a regular basis until the project is complete. 

>Beach access at the Valley Isle Resort may be closed from time to time due to ocean and swell conditions. Sandbags have been installed along the shoreline.
