ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Virgin Gordian Scott Maynard of Maynard Construction Ltd yesterday, July 22, 2019 signed a contract to perform remedial works to facilities at the territory’s premier tourist destination, The Baths.

The contract, valued at $150,068.06, was awarded by the Virgin Islands Recovery and Development Agency (RDA).

Maynard Construction Limited will be responsible for effecting repairs to the bar, ticket booth, bathroom facilities and the construction of a new rest stop at The Baths. The timeline for the works is six weeks.

Owner of Maynard Construction Limited, Mr Scott Maynard, expressed delight at being given an opportunity to develop an important area of Virgin Gorda where he is from.

“The contract is also a great establishment for the company to make that initial step to creating a ‘greater Baths’ as they were saying [at contract signing]. That is a great advantage for me seeing that we are a small company,” Mr Maynard told Virgin Islands News Online today, July 23, 2019.

Maynard Construction Limited was established for over 33 years and Mr Scott Maynard took over its management following the death of his father some four years ago.

Meanwhile, works on The Baths should be commencing in the next two weeks “based on the mobilisation.”

At the contract signing were Minister for Natural Resources, Labour and Immigration, Honourable Vincent O. Wheatley, who is also the Ninth District Representative and Junior Minister for Tourism Hon Shereen D. Flax-Charles, members of the National Parks Trust and officials of RDA.

    If it was on Tortola, everybody would kick up. But the Republic of VG does what it wants.

      Just like the kingdom of Tortola whose BVI Investors Club destroyed the VG yacht harbor and commercial center by jacking up rents to ridiculous amounts.
