Dear Warwick residents Please see the updated scaffold diagram from our contractor below. The Back Garden will remain closed through next week for all of our safety for the continuation of FISP repairs. We have lost work days due to weather and Columbs Day. The garden closure includes all times, day/night/weekend and "passing through" from the back entrance or exiting through the basement. The only exception is management pre-approved moves or deliveries. If you are on the J, K, L, G, O, A lines keep your windows closed and locked with blinds closed for privacy while work in progress Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. Make sure no fragile items are near your outside wall. With recent rain storms we continue to remind residents to check for leaks - bubbling paint, damp walls, stains, etc. and report to Orlando 646-209-8530 as soon as possible. Thanks to you we are able to capture areas for inspection and repairs.
The back garden will be closed for entry and exit at all times starting tomorrow while facade inspections shift to the back. The only exceptions are pre-approved moves or deliveries that will be coordinated with Orlando. Amsterdam Restoration will be setting up various scaffolds for the engineer inspections. Work will continue on 77th st. For your safety and those of Amsterdam employees please do not enter, exit, or "pass through" the back garden until further notice. If your apt. faces 77th st. or the back please close/lock your windows and keep your blinds closed for privacy Monday-Friday 8-5. Work will be weather dependent.
Please continue to report signs of leaks on exterior walls to Orlando. We appreciate everyone's cooperation.
Dear Warwick Residents A few updates for you regarding facade work outside: 1. Work has been completed on drops 1-3 - see diagram below on the northeast corner of 35th and 77th st. 2. Starting today, Amsterdam will be moving the scaffolding from L/M lines to J/K/L lines on 77th st. Residents should keep windows closed and locked, blinds/curtains drawn during work hours. Remove items on walls that could be damaged by vibrations. Amsterdam Warwick Owners Corp. and New Bedford are not responsible for damages. 3. Tomorrow starting around 10:30 water tests will be conducted on the higher floors of "J" and "O" lines. "Downpour" conditions will be created for several hours with a hose - for "J" and "O" owners on all floors please keep your windows shut tight. 4. Last night we had heavy rains, please continue to report new leaks along exterior walls to Orlando - bubbling paint, stained walls/ceilings, dampness are some examples. This is very helpful to capture all work areas while our engineering team and contractors are on site.
Our property manager, Maria Pietrzak, is back from her maternity leave and will be resuming her full duties. Her contact details are below. A special thank you to MaryAnn Basrudin, our assistant property manager, for 'wearing all hats' during her absence.

Dear Warwick Residents; FISP (Facade Inspection & Safety Program) Cycle 9 will commence on Monday, July 20th with our project contractor, Amsterdam Restoration. The current scope of work is in the front of the building on 35th Avenue. Cost is approximately $200,000 with a timeline of about 3 months. Time and cost may change if additional work is required.
We encourage all residents to continue to report leaks and cracks to Orlando to investigate and report to our team at AMR Engineering while we have a team mobilized on site and weather is in our favor.
On Monday July 20, the sidewalk shed installation will commence from the east side - 77th st ("L" line) to the front - 35th Ave ("N" line). This is expected to take 2-3 days. As for previous cycles, we will continue to update residents via email, please take time to review notices.
We would like to bring the following to your attention:
1. Residents should be aware that this operation may cause dust, even though the contractor will be using vacuums for dust control. Residents should close and lock their windows when work is taking place and nearby. 2. Amsterdam Restoration will protect the existing air conditioners with filters because of possible dust. However, these filters do not guarantee the safety of these A/C units, operation of air conditioners in the immediate area of work may result in irreversible damage to the units, and the residents are advised to use this equipment during non-work hours to avoid any problems with their equipment. If the A/C units are used by residents, Amsterdam Restoration and Warwick Owners Corp. bear no responsibility for damage of the A/C units due to dust. Amsterdam Restoration strongly recommends that A/C units are not used, especially when work is being performed nearby. A/C units should be turned off any time an apartment is not occupied. A/C filters should be cleaned or exchanged frequently. We may ask that individual A/C units are removed so we can complete the work on a particular drop. Warwick Owners Corp. is responsible for professional removal and reinstallation for the resident. 3. Operations may cause vibrations to the exterior walls. Residents should remove any hanging picture frames, mirrors, breakables, from walls, shelves, etc. that may be in danger of falling / breaking from these vibrations. Amsterdam Restoration and Warwick Owners Corp. are not responsible for damages caused by these vibrations. 4. Construction personnel will be outside of the residents’ apartments, on hanging scaffolding. Residents should close and lock their windows and close their blinds /curtains for privacy. Windows close to construction work will be covered with plastic sheeting. Please do not tamper with this covering. It will be removed when safe. 5. Residents should never stick their heads or any other body part out of their windows during the hours of construction for their own safety. 6. Residents should NOT interact with the contractor's employees for any reason. This is distracting and could be dangerous for the employees. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Orlando to relay to the foreman or Maria Pietrzak. 7. Work will be conducted 8:00 am -5:00 pm Monday through Friday except for holidays (weather permitting). Some work will cause noise and we apologize for the inconvenience.
Amsterdam Restoration and Warwick Owners Corp. will not be held liable for any damages due to residents failing to comply with these minimal measures to ensure their safety or that of their property. This project is filed with the Department of Buildings (DOB) for FISP compliance with all required COVID safety precautions.
Any questions should be directed to our property manager, Maria Pietrzak in writing.
