Minister for Transportation, Works and Utilities, Honourable Kye Rymer says that repairing the Central Administration Complex and making it once again fit for occupancy is part of the recovery of the Territory.

Honourable Rymer said works have begun on the building to identify equipment that has been damaged by water and are no longer in use, identifying excess moisture to be removed from existing membrane and removal of debris to allow for works to begin on areas of the roof.

He said following the removal of debris and cleaning of the roof, the team will then replace the sections that were completely torn off during the Hurricanes of 2017 and re-roof the entire complex.

Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie had outlined in his 2020 Budget address that works have begun to restore and renovate the Central Administration Complex, now renamed in honour of the first Premier of the Virgin Islands the late Honourable Ralph T O’Neal, OBE, to make the facility fit for use by the Territory’s hard-working public officers.

Repair to the roof and replacement of the skylights should be completed early in the first quarter of 2020.
