The kinks which stood in the way of construction of housing solutions out of China, have now been ironed out, says Minister of Housing Dwight Sutherland.
He said yesterday the agreement with East-West Solutions (Barbados) Inc. for steel-framed houses is on course to be fulfilled by the end of this financial year. This completion date overshoots the initial expected construction timeframe by close to three years.
Sutherland told the Sunday Sun that some of the completed houses had already been allocated to those who were victims of Hurricane Elsa, two years ago.
In April, he informed the country the project had encountered some challenges in that while the 150 houses had arrived, the labour to accompany them did not, as some people did not receive work permits. (CLM)
