After 20 years at the Mill Mall in Road Town, B&F Medical is getting set to relocate to the James Frett building in Road Town, but only for a short time.
Co-Founder of B&F Medical, Alred Frett told BVI News that a permanent home is being constructed for the medical complex; this after Mill Mall Investments Limited served B&F with an eviction notice in May.
Frett said work has already commenced on their new three-story building which is located near the Treasure Isle Hotel in Road Town.
“We hope that within a year we should reach to the point where it becomes habitable,” he said.
The ground level of the complex will ‘comfortably’ house all B&F’s units, while the two other floors will be available for lease; primarily to small businesses, Frett said.
The undertaking is projected to cost more than $3 million.
In the meantime, the medical company is aiming to move into their transitory quarters at the James Frett building within the first week of September.
He said most of their units will be housed on the ground floor of that building.
However, the dentistry and the eyecare units may be housed nearby in another building.
Frett said “it was extremely difficult” to find a place large enough to accommodate the company’s needs.
The company is a one-stop medical facility which offers services in obstetrics, gynaecology, eye care, foot care, dermatology, dentistry, orthodontics, among other things.
