School Projects Back On
The Education Ministry has advised that the first stage of the government's strategy for completing construction at the John Gray and Clifton Hunter High Schools will commence today, Tuesday, 26 January 2010.
This initial activity will see work re-start at both sites. To begin with, this work will concentrate on roofing installations, exterior wall systems and mechanical and electrical, particularly where work already performed in these trades requires prompt attention to prevent deterioration.
As the Minister for Education, Training and Employment, the Hon. Rolston Anglin explained, "These works are necessary to preserve warranties and are critical with respect to mitigating costs going forward."
These urgent works will be supervised by the Ministry's project management team.
In addition, the project team will also shortly advertise a tender for construction management services.
Once appointed, the construction manager will assume responsibility for day-to-day construction activities at both sites, which will at that point be increased to levels necessary to complete the projects.
