Work is now set to begin on the Central Administration Complex to bring relief to public servants who have been working in the hurricane-ravaged structure, which is located in Road Town.
Work will start because government has received an $11.4 million payout from NAGICO Insurance.
A media release from government said the funds will be used to rehabilitate and improve the structure.
The release said while some public servants are still operating in the building, several others had to be relocated because their offices in the complex were severely compromised during the September 2017 disasters.
“The receipt of this cheque is timely and will help to improve our infrastructure with greater resilience and enable a more effective and efficient public service,” Premier Dr D Orlando Smith said on Thursday, April 19.
The Premier also thanked public officers who he said continued to make significant contributions to the territory despite their challenges.
He expressed his eagerness to see all departments housed under one roof, with improved operating conditions to ensure ease of access for the general public.
