The renovation of the Central Administration Complex is now under the full responsibility of Minister of Transportation, Works & Utilities, Kye Rymer.
All agencies within the building are also now expected to temporarily relocate during the works of this project.
This was revealed by Minister Rymer in a statement published on October 7.
He said a meeting was held in September with the Deputy Governor David Archer, Jr and various stakeholders, following which a decision was taken by Cabinet.
“The purpose of that meeting was for the Deputy Governor, who chaired previous meetings, to officially hand over the responsibilities for the renovation of the Central Administration Complex to me,” Minister Rymer stated.
Agencies to move
As for the relocation of employees, Rymer said: “To ensure the comfort and safety of our public officers, as well as to minimize interruption of the work at the administration complex, it was decided that all agencies would relocate to alternative accommodation in the interim. Cabinet will then give the requisite approvals and the relocation of staff would begin.”
According to Rymer, the renovated building will be able to withstand the impacts of various hazards and will incorporate smart technology, as extensive interior works and exterior improvements will be carried out.
