Operations at the Central Administration Complex in Road Town are being affected by a malfunctioning cooling system.
A government-commissioned media release has said this malfunction in the air conditioning has resulted in the Ministry of Transporation, Works & Utilities shortening work hours since Wednesday.
That ministry’s offices, which are based at the complex, now operate from 8:30 pm to 1 pm.
“A decision was made to give staff the opportunity to leave early given that the central A/C is under repair. So it’s very hot in the building at this moment,” the ministry’s Deputy Secretary, Jeremy Hodge told BVI News in a Subsequent interview.
“The claim is that it (the malfunction) had to do with a sensor and some of the fans in the chiller,” Hodge said, adding that issue is expected to be rectified by Friday, September 13.
Normal operating hours will resume once the problem if fully rectified.
