    Hi Tony

    Any underpinning work would have to carried out by a specialist company and the work would also have to come with a 10 insurance backed guarantee.

    Otherwise the building will be uninsurable and if underpinning is not declared to any insurance company at the time of purchase any future claims will be void.

    Also now that subsidence has occurred on the site it will effect all future insurance policy for the rest of the development and premiums

    Then you will have to try and get a Mortgage on a site with Subsidence issues..and anyone on this site who is involved with the FSA should know this.

    Maybe Sambala resident engineer IAN would like to talk us through it now. My lawyer was very interested in IAN report and he has kept it on file.

    With IAN encouraging people to pay up more money. just like TSOG did.

    Hi All,
    Please read the latest news regarding the build quality,from a friend of a friend of another friend. Please note that this is posted as an opion of a friend. As always with any investment always obtain professional advice?

    Cracks in A Block started the question of Build Quality on the Village Phase. Sambala has said Block A has been fully repaired yet will not say when, and by who. Underpinning would have taken around 3 months of work on that Block alone. (6 months when comparing work rates in cape verde) There are no pictures or indeed any recollection of anyone seeing any type of work going on around Block A. Sambala will not comment if they indeed have such photographic evidence too. A specialist company would have to have carried out this type of work as the consequences of getting it wrong, would do more harm than good.

    It is only a few of us that still want answers to our questions?

    The answer is an independant survey and for Sambala to release the Building Specifications. But this has been refused?

    Sean I put this post on the other day but none of you bothered to reply with answers so whats the point of being constructive

    We all know the resort is 4 years late.
    We all know it has been caused predominately by bad management.
    We all know Sambala have not adheared to the contract.
    We all know Sambala have no intention of showing the books
    We all know that given hindsight most of us would not of bought into Sambala in the first place.
    We all know that the management of Sambala have been overpaid with our money for years with very little result.

    Knowing all the above does not alter the fact that to get the resort finished and open we will all have to continue paying what is owed when and only when it is due.

    The alternative is very straight forward. No resort and no prospect of our money back.

    If anyone can come up with a realistic workable alternative to getting the resort complete and open or all of our money back then please give us all the details of how to do it.

    Please don’t just post the same old reasons which we have all heard a 100 times before. If you have a genuine proposition then lets hear it.

    it states the obvious, offers nothing, so there isnothing to say.

    Three options

    pay more to the money pit, thinking it will be different this time
    cut loses
    legal action

    i note in your obvious list you don’t address the subsidence, insurance, design issues

    what do you own by the way?

    Tell your friend of a friend that this is a public forum and they don’t need to go through 2 3rd parties to do a post. Daniel I am sure will be happy to increase his membership
    or
    Could it be your friend of a friend aka KK, then aka Jason is still pulling the strings and you are the puppet!.
    Get real Tony, this just blows your credibility out the water doing stupid pranks like that.
    Some posters are trying to make serious points on the issues

    Regarding the cracks which we are supposed to believe are due to expansion.
    1. Cape Verde has one of the smallest temperature variations on the planet. Probably no more than 10’C range at extremes.
    2. Using the coefficient of expansion of alloy steel, I calculate that a 3 metre beam will expand 0.44mm, this expansion acts in all directions and each beam should be placed to allow for it’s own expansion. Therefore from it’s centre to end it will expand/contract 0.22mm

    Hardly a sufficient reason to explain the cracks that are evident. Perhaps Iain could explain his reasoning.
