The Ministry of Social Development has awarded a local construction company a contract valued nearly $200,000 for the construction of temporary housing units on Tortola and Anegada.
The Recovery & Development Agency (RDA) said on its official Facebook page that Roy Garraway of Quality Construction signed the $185,189.19 contract on September 30.
Three units are expected to be constructed with two in the Fat Hog’s Bay and the other on Anegada. A fourth unit whose location was not disclosed is only expected to receive electrical work since the structure has already been constructed.
The other works contracted to be carried out includes essential connections for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems of all the units.
According to the RDA, the four recipients of the housing units met the criteria set out by the Ministry of Health & Social Development’s Housing Recovery Assistance Programme.
The second part of the project which includes the construction of temporary housing units and essential connections for beneficiaries on Jost Van Dyke is scheduled to be signed later this month.
This project is a collaboration between the RDA and the Ministry of Social Development and is jointly funded by Unite BVI and central government.
