Government has signed an air conditioning contract valued at more than $300,000 as part of the restoration of the L-Shaped building at Elmore Stoutt High School’s Road Town campus.
The $346,560 contract was awarded to Kelvin Thomas who is doing business as Quality Air Condition and Refrigeration.
Director of Projects in the Ministry of Finance, Dr Drexel Glasgow told BVI News the contract was privately signed on May 2.
“It was not a public signing because he (Thomas) was present at the Elmore Stoutt High School when the other four [contractors] were signing so we just went ahead and we had that new a/c contract signed,” Dr Glasgow explained.
Dr Glasgow also said Thomas will be furnishing all materials, engineering, tools, trucking labour, and supervision to install the air conditioning system.
“He’s supplying and installing the air condition for each floor [of the L-shaped building] … It includes connecting of refrigerant lines, installation of electrical field wiring, connection and installation of the drain line, installation of outdoor units, installing of indoor units, system retesting, and evaporation,” Dr Glasgow said.
The combined total of government contracts awarded for the full restoration of the L-shape building now stands at more than $4 million.
The project is expected to be completed by July 31, 2019.
