─tenders open Jan 12, 13
The Ministry of Housing and Water – Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) has hit the ground running in the new year, inviting bids for 18 housing projects across four regions.
Minister, Hon. Collin Croal, at a recent housing exercise, said the sector’s advancement provides major spin-off benefits for the economy.
“When our Government invests in the housing sector, there is a direct positive effect on job creation in the construction sector, increased spending and a greater demand for basic goods and services. All of this results in good things for small and medium-scale businesses, truckers, taxi drivers, bus operators, carpenters, painters and many others.”
Region Three residents can look forward to developments in Meten-Meer-Zorg, Stewartville, Anna Catherina, Edinburgh and Cornelia Ida, West Coast Demerara.
In Region Four, development will take place in Prospect, Providence, Little Diamond and Great Diamond on the East Bank Demerara and Cummings Lodge, Mon Repos, Annandale, La Bonne Intention, Vigilance, Bladen Hall and Strathspey on the East Coast.
Meanwhile in Regions Five and Six, works are slated for Experiment, Hampshire, Williamsburg, No. 75 Village, No. 79 Village, Ordnance, Fortlands and Canje.
Tenders for Region Four open on January 12. Those for Regions Three, Five and Six open on January 13.
The bidding will be conducted through the National Competitive Bidding in keeping with the procurement Act 2003.
Pre-bid meetings are scheduled to begin today. All projects have a construction period of 150 days per lot.
