Industrial Courts Nearing Completion

The Industrial Tribunal is expected to relocate to the newly completed offices at Saffrey Square in Bank Lane ahead of schedule, the Bahama Journal has learnt.

Last week Contractor Audley Hanna of construction firm, Paradigm Construction, gave representatives from the Ministries of Finance and Works a tour of the project and he also updated them on its progress.

Mr. Hanna was recently awarded a $400,000 contract to renovate several units in the Saffrey Square Building, converting two of them into courtrooms.

The firm has exceeded all expectations by completing the work in less than a month.

“The quality of work is really good and we have a had a good working relationship with Mr. Hanna,” said Timothy Johnson, chief architect at the Ministry of Public Works. “At the end of the day, the Industrial Tribunal is going to move into a better environment than what they have now.

“The scale and the upscale of the project have really improved. This new home which will be occupied within another week or so, really shows strength to the government agencies who are capable of producing projects before the due date and within budget.”

Both Mr. Hanna and the representatives expressed optimism about the project.

“I see this as a red-letter day for the Industrial Tribunal in that this is an improved accomodation facility,” said Secretary of the Industrial Tribunal Petrenda Russell. “What the Industrial Tribunal requested they have gotten in this project. There’s an upscale premises as well as room for growth for the staff and you can see that all of the needs they have requested to be addressed have been addressed.”

Once completed, the Industrial Tribunal will relocate from its current Oakes Field offices to the new Saffrey Square location in Bank Lane.
