There has been a $5 million cost overrun on construction of the Government’s new Customs House and the project has been delayed by over a year, Minister in the Ministry of Finance Conrad Enill confirmed yesterday.
Enill was replying in the Senate to an Opposition question on the issue.
He said the project was initially estimated to cost $114 million. The new estimated cost was $119 million, he said.
It was also expected to have been completed by March 2006. However, Enill said delays caused by ground conditions and changes in aesthetics of the building had delayed completion.
Enill said the Government had been in talks with contractors—NH International—to have the project completed by December 31, 2007. (GA)
