Communications and Works new Home

Workers within the Communication and Works Department may finally relocate to their new building as early as September, a month ahead of schedule. The department is presently housed in a private house in Woodlands for some fifteen years.

Project Manager and Director of the Project Implementation Unit (PIU), Mr. Owen Lewis revealed that, “completion of the new building was scheduled for October. However, at the present rate of construction the building may be ready for September.”

According to the Director, the building was strategically constructed in the Brades area on Government owned land with close proximity to the main government headquarters.

The building was constructed to government specifications meeting a number of requirements, which included soft internal walls, trade finish that will reduce maintenance cost; sequence Miami certified windows to accommodate hurricane shutters, and allow the reflection of the natural sunlight to reduce energy cost.

Department of International Development (DFID) approved funding for the building in December of 2010. Architect Ken Cassell designed the building while Contractor C&G Construction constructed the building.
