Minister for Transportation, Works & Utilities, Kye Rymer.

Renovations on the Central Administration Complex is expected to begin within the next few days as two contractors have already been given the nod to carry out works on one of the phases of the project.

This was revealed by Minister of Transportation, Works & Utilities Kye Rymer during a recent statement which was published on October 7.

He said preliminary activities regarding the project had already started.

“On September 20, acceptance letters were issued from the government to two contractors to repair the roof and to demolish and replace the skylights respectively. Cleaning and removal of the remaining membrane on the roof will begin in a few days in preparation for the works to begin,” Minister Rymer stated

He further said: “Strict conditions have been included in the contracts to ensure that this phase of the project is completed in 90 days.”

Minister Rymer also said a number of additional works which are currently awaiting approval from Cabinet before they can proceed.

These include the clearing of contaminated debris, furniture and other articles from the basement of the building and also the sanitisation of the basement while restoring any files that can be cleaned and salvaged.

Rymer further said the tender documents for the removal and replacement of the glazing, windows and doors of the building will continue to be in circulation for the next two months.

He said he is hoping local contractors come forward and bid on that project as government is confident in their ability to get the job done.

Once the building is completed, it is expected to be able to withstand the impacts of various hazards and will incorporate smart technology.

    The ndp really didn’t care about us after Irma. Two years later and it took the vip to fix the L Shaped building at the high school and now fixing the government complex. I am totally ashamed of the ndp.

      Why not inform the mind before posting? It is not difficult to find facts and figures of the type you mentioned.

      For example: The L shaped building reconstruction was well underway before the election of VIP.

      Second, common sense also suggest that VIP could not have accomplished that much work from inception to finish in such a short six month time. I would have taken at least a year just to allocate plans and other ground preparations.

      Third, financing for the project was approved long before VIP came on board. So be fair and honest nah. It would not one bit.

    Maybe they will find my work permit application that the Labour Department lost two years ago.
