Assembly Building Renovation to be Completed by 2025

Valerie Woods

According to Woods, a timeline has been set out for the works to commence.  It is expected that the project which will be executed by the Ministry of Infrastructure & Development will be completed by February 2025.  The Speaker of the House of Representatives shared the work schedule.

“Temporary relocation will be at the George Price Center for a period scheduled for ten months.  If all goes on track, it means then that the National Assembly will then be returned, National Assembly meetings will then be returned to this new and improved building as of late January or early February 2025.  For you to be aware, the George Price Center will be set up in this similar fashion.  It will accommodate one committee room and it will accommodate two members room.  There may be some limitation with public gallery for visitors.  The media will still have a space in the main chamber upstairs.  Should the need arise for there to be extended spacing for public gallery, that will have to be accommodated outside with the use of a digital screen under a tent.  Those decisions will be taken meeting by meeting and as well by the request of the public if we see an overwhelming demand based on the first few meetings.  I’d also like to acknowledge the work of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development & Housing who have been asked to serve in the capacity of executing agency for both projects.  Those projects are the remedial works that have to be done at the George Price Center and those commence December sixteenth or as of December sixteenth and that should run through the end of March.  Immediately thereafter, they commence the works at the National Assembly Building.”
