Government has signed a $323,350 contract for design and construction management services on several government buildings which were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Irma.
Premier and Minister of Finance Dr D Orlando Smith signed the 12-month contract with local architectural and construction firm, Trojan Designs & Development Limited late last month.
The firm will be required to prepare engineering and architectural plans for the rehabilitation of government buildings across the territory and supervise the construction works associated with the project.
Director of government projects, Dr Drexel Glasgow said Trojan is required to ‘incorporate disaster resilient features in the design to ensure that government infrastructure can withstand future events.
The Magistrate’s Court in John’s Hole, the Attorney General’s house, two living quarters for judges in the jurisdiction, the Vanterpool Building and Flax Building in the Valley and the North Sound Administration building on Virgin Gorda are some of the facilities for which Trojan will be offering design services.
The company has already commenced services since the contract signing on November 30.
