The Saman Villas are a 39 unit complex of resort homes surrounding a world class Robert Trent Jones golf course located on St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 1995, Hurricane Marilyn hit St. Croix hard, causing substantial damage to the Saman Villas.

Remington Group, now Avison Young, was retained to assess the scope and cost of the damage, negotiate a settlement with the insurance company, and direct the reconstruction process. We successfully obtained a very favorable insurance settlement that allowed complete repairs to all of the units.

The reconstruction work was scheduled and performed in such a way that the impact to homeowners was minimized, allowing owners who lived in minimally damaged units to move back in as quickly as possible. Due to the resort nature of the property all work was scheduled to proceed quickly, but as unobtrusively as possible so as not to disturb vacationing owners.
