New Schools Moving Ahead
This is a joint statement from the Ministry of Education, Training & Employment and Caribbean Mechanical (High Schools 2008) Limited regarding the contractual arrangements for the new schools projects:
The Cayman Islands Government is currently formalising the new contractual arrangements under which the construction manager will be engaged at the new high schools projects, along with the terms on which the remaining trades will return to the project sites.
At the same time, Caribbean Mechanical (High Schools 2008) Limited has begun demobilising its workers from both of the sites of the new high schools, as the company's work is now well in advance of the other trades. This demobilisation will allow the new construction management arrangements to be implemented.
The Cayman Islands Government anticipates that the arrangements with the new construction manager, including mobilisation of its work force, should be finalised this week.
In addition, the Ministry is also preparing to issue multiple new trade contracts to the contractors who will be managed by the new construction manager and additional tender packages, for a number of work scopes, which will be advertised in the next two weeks.
