The Recovery & Development Agency (RDA) has awarded a local company a contract valued more than $30,000 for debris clearance at the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) campus in Road Town.
Autland Heavy Equipment Co Ltd signed the $34,097.50 contract last Friday, May 24.
A joint media release from the Ministry of Education and the RDA said: “The scope of works for this project includes the demolition and clearance of all debris to provide space for temporary classrooms and the future redevelopment of the site.”
It further said: “These works are concentrated on a concrete slab at ESHS which originally contained a steel-framed structure that subsequently collapsed.”
Autland’s operations manager Dawn Crabbe-Herbert said her company was delighted to be selected from a pool of three tenderers and looks forward to contributing to the redevelopment of the territory.
The project, while being implemented with the support of the RDA, is under the responsibilities of the Ministry of Education. It is expected to be completed by July 31 2019.
The total number of contracts awarded for the complete restoration of the ESHS now stands at six and has a combined total value of $4,156,057.63.
