The Government of the Virgin Islands, through the Recovery and Development Agency (RDA), will be signing two contracts for the Redevelopment of the Elmore Stoutt High School campus tomorrow.

The Commencement of Project and Contract Signing Ceremony will be held on Thursday, December 2 at the school’s campus and will include the signing of a contract with Trojan Design & Development Limited for “Design Consultancy Services” valued at $99,480 USD, while the other contract will be signed with Sand Wise Limited for the “Demolition and Debris Works Clearance valued at $136,079.50 USD.

Following the 2017 hurricanes, there was significant infrastructural and utility damages to classroom facilities at the Elmore Stoutt High School. This resulted in the relocation of students and staff to temporary accommodations throughout Tortola as the Government endeavoured to both rehabilitate and upgrade the infrastructure of the campus.

Junior school students have returned to the campus and are accommodated in the L. Adorothy Turnbull building that was rehabilitated. The Government of the Virgin Islands is also prioritising a timely commencement of a suitable space that will be available to accommodate the students from the Old CTL building at the beginning of the new school term before the end of the lease in March 2022.

The public is encouraged to tune in to view the ceremony for the contract signings live on Facebook @BVIGovernment.

The Recovery and Development Agency was established in April 2018 to collaborate with the Government of the Virgin Islands, private sector, the public and civil society to best address the urgent needs of the Territory as a result of the natural disasters that occurred in 2017.
