ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Quality Construction has managed to secure yet another government awarded contract, this time it is to facilitate the rehabilitation and road stabilisation works in the Horse Path/Huntums Ghut communities.

The contract, valued at $900,000, was signed yesterday November 16, 2016 at the Office of the Premier’s Conference Room, Central Administration Complex in Road Town.

Quality Construction living up to its name!

According to Minister for Communications and Works Honourable Mark H. Vanterpool (R4), Government was pleased with previous works of a similar nature successfully completed by Quality Construction.

"Quality Construction has successfully completed similar projects for the Government, and we are confident that they will remember the high quality standards that are required by them and bringing this project within budget,"

Scope of work

The Minister further stated that for the sum of $992,822.28, Quality Construction is contracted to do land clearing, demolition of existing structures, construction of retaining walls, culverts, drains and road pavements, re-sectioning of the Ghut in addition to a few others.

For the CDB projects government has expended some $10M of the $15M as disclosed yesterday by Hon Vanterpool.

"We remain grateful to the Caribbean Development Bank CDB, who, in March 2012, approved a sum of $15,670,000.00 towards these projects...To date, contracts with a total sum of $9,771,167.76 have been signed, to include Engineering Consultancy, Planning Regulations and Construction Works," he said.

It was just over a year ago, when Mr Roy L. Garraway aka Yellow, owner and director of Quality Construction, joined the pool of local contractors securing such a contract with Government.

One of the contractors, who for the first time yesterday secured a contract under the programme, declared that the prerequisites are not too stringent for local contractors.

In the first instance, Garraway secured a government awarded CDB contract valued at just over $1 million to undertake a nine month project in Huntums Ghut.

      More like no one else wants to do their homework, and expect handouts. Do you see the size of the contract document? Let me know which contractor(s) would prepare a bid of that size - they find it hard enough as it is to give you 2 pages to construct a residence.

        Well said!!!!!!!.....Why do people have to make everything out to be either political or personal, why cant you just show your support to a local contractor that is progressing nicely and producing quality work. This is the downfall of the human race, y'all dont support each other...Instead you just fight, hate and try to bring down each other, you all find joy in seeing the other fail. This little Island have too much jealousy and hate. "Yellow and his team did an awesome job in Huntums Ghut and I am positive you guys are going to deliver the same for this project.... Ignore the haters, and continue working hard.

    I hope there is a master plan and oversight so this doesn't turn into a straight demolition of key structures which may be historical. I always worry when demo is concerned because study and EIA are usually not considered. Please create a master plan when moving forward or we lose a bit if history and environment one slice at a time.

    People need to stop assuming cause it does no good. The CDB funded projects takes you through a tedious process just to qualify . Quality Construction is a well staffed office with accountants, quantity surveyors and project managers. These project can run up to $20,000.00 in preparing these documents .Additionally property or cash must be put up as bonds incase the contractor does not complete the project. These Contracts are open to tender and instead of bashing Yellow we should commend him. I am sure in some way Yellow' s genorosity has touched you in some way , maybe indirectly through your brother, sister ,son etc. We boast about the local guys playing basketball in Division 1 NCAA . Guest what thats Yellow.We boast about the youths that brought back the goal medal from The Allen Burke tournament. Guess what that was Yellow. Negativity just destroys minds
