Fire and Building Officials Declare The Windermere Building Uninhabitable

Post Date:12/03/2018

Based on results of air quality tests and physical inspection of The Windermere Building, 5800 South Datura Street, city fire and building officials have determined the building is not safe for residents to return in the near future due to damage from the November 17 fire. While initial air testing showed no contamination, micro vac testing mandated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment found asbestos clinging to surfaces such as walls, stairwells and air ducts. These areas will need to be cleaned and abated along with extensive repairs required on the elevators, ventilation and fire control systems.

“There is a lot we know,” said Littleton Chief Building Official Bill Tracy. “But more importantly, there is a lot we don’t know. The building can’t be maintained in a safe manner while further evaluation, repairs and testing get underway.”

“Our primary focus is the health and well-being of the residents who can’t return to their homes,” said Littleton Mayor Debbie Brinkman. “We are so appreciative of the assistance provided by Love Inc., the American Red Cross, Arapahoe County, city staff and other agencies who continue to assist those who are displaced. The City of Littleton is providing $7,500 each to Love Inc. and the American Red Cross to help reimburse these great organizations for their costs in helping residents with housing, food, transportation, clothing, and other expenses,” Brinkman added. Almost all of the residents had renters insurance but they are incurring incidental expenses and deductibles that must be met before their policies kick in.

Most residents will have the opportunity in the next few weeks to retrieve the rest of the items in their home. However, nine of the 130 units are considered a total loss. Property management will submit a plan to the city that describes how and when residents can gain access to their units to remove the remainder of their belongings.
