Beacon Bay was called by Matt Dean at MVC (Marriott Vacation Club) and requested that two members of our project management team come to the property as soon as possible as Myrtle Beach had just been hammered by Hurricane Florence, and all 5 villa buildings had suffered major water damage. We arrived on site 3 days after the hurricane to find Interstate Restoration and DBI Construction Consultants creating moisture maps and beginning demo of saturated walls and carpet. MVC requested that Beacon Bay manage and document all daily activities, and ensure Interstate Restoration completes all restoration by October 26th.
Beacon Bay would monitor daily construction activity and push the contractor to stay on schedule. We worked with LEA Environmental to test each and every room for moisture levels to determine what areas had to be demo’d and what areas could be dried in place. Every day Beacon Bay Team Members would walk units with LEA Environmental and position forced air dryers and dehumidifiers to try and reduce areas that needed to be demoed thus cutting back on remediation work and the overall cost of the project. There was no budget for this project, as it was billed on a time and material basis. Beacon Bay would conduct a daily end of day meeting with hotel operations, Interstate Restoration, MVC, and DBI to discuss the day’s progress and plan for what activities would take place the following day.
The project was finished with all units returned back to operations on the last day before the weekend’s guests were set to arrive. MVC and hotel operations were extremely happy that they did not have to cancel anyone’s vacation as a result of the hurricane. The client was very satisfied with our swift service and professionalism.
