The manager of the Champlain Towers Condom Association complained a few days before the June 24 crash that Surfside (a building dortment in Florida) was preventing the building from making the necessary rails, according to emails.

“We need to get these questions answered,” June 21 condom building manager Scott Stewart wrote.

Surfside’s building dertment failed to meet the Air Conditioners Association’s request to approve a temporary rking plan for construction for more than a month, the Miami Herald reported.

Jim McGinness, director of building denting, answered a series of questions just 14 hours before the building collapsed on June 23, the Herald reported. His email went unanswered.

According to reports, McGinness documented the railroads the day before the collapse of the building’s roof and later said: “There was not a large amount of equipment or materials in this building or anything that caught the eye of building officials. is falling, ”he said Lm Beach Post.


The planned reirs include the bottom of the pool, which experts have linked to the collapse, and a concrete slab for planting, according to the Herald.

After the collapse, the city released documents reflecting the security issues that had been flagged before the 40-year inspection required for the building.

Morabito Consultants, Inc. company’s 2018 report., inspecting the complex, did not report a risk of collapse, but noted that walls were needed to maintain the “structural integrity” of the building.

The report noted a number of problems, including complaints of structural damage to balconies due to flooding “during a storm event” and cracks in the concrete of unit balconies.

The commission estimated the building needed millions of dollars in essential perches, the Herald reported.

After a week of unanswered emails in May, engineer Frank Morabito and members of the condominium board eventually met with building management officials to discuss the legacy, according to reports.

A week later, in an email that went unanswered for a month, Morabito asked the city to sce for construction crews so the railroads could be up and running.

“It simply came to our notice then [Champlain Tower South’s] ASAP’s willingness to come out to offer 40 years of re-certification work and the opinion of the town of Surfside on this request are needed so that everyone has a clear understanding of how this project will be implemented. So we ask you to notify the town in the near future so that we can review the pictures in our contracts and submit the permit to the city for review / approval, ”Morabito wrote.

“We need to get these questions answered,” Condom building manager Scott Stewart wrote a month later, on June 21, three days before the crash.

“It keeps us going and covers the costs [sic] they are leaving [sic] 40 years is coming fast, ”he added.

Stewart also wrote to former construction director Scott Prieto about a 40-year inspection in 2020.

“We’ve been trying to move forward for 40 years by filling out the necessary paperwork so we can touch the ground when we can get started,” he wrote after Prieto claimed the condom was “in good condition”. Morabito report, Messenger reported.

Officials said the death toll from Friday’s rescue operation had risen to 22, with 126 people still missing.

The Surfside building dertent did not immediately respond to a Acesparks post-work comment request.
