Facelift For National Sports Centre Grandstand

April 3, 2019 | 14 Comments

[Updated with photos] Members of the public will have limited access to the grandstand at the National Sports Centre as it undergoes remediation work.

One million dollars has been allocated to the project which is being overseen by the NSC’s Board of Trustees and which is due to finish in August.

“The work involves power washing, sandblasting, painting, and replacing all parts relating to the integrity of the steel roof truss members and is being carried out by Bermudian firm, Sunrise Construction,” the NSC said.

Craig Tyrrell, Operations Manager, said: “As a result of the work, some parts of the grandstand will be closed at various times, however we will give the public as much notice as possible regarding the affected areas, which will be cordoned off during the project.

“This is quite extensive work and will give the grandstand, which was originally built in 2002, a much-needed facelift to ensure it continues to be a fantastic facility for the community.”

    But not enough money to give fire,police,prison and teacher retirees a cost of living rise for the last seven years or the foreseeable future !

  7. Vortex says:

    A simple start would be serving proper food, the fried trash they serve now doesn’t sit well with the sports.

  8. Albie says:

    How about fixing the gates and turnstiles on the Cedarbridge side?

  9. Realist says:

    Who’s Sunsrise Construction? It would be helpful to know. Are there any contingencies for over runs? What’s the final cost of contract? Or do they get to spend the entire million? We need these questions answered prior. Why? The past is repeating itself in governance. Will it repeat itself with this major spend?

    With upcoming games against Mexico, I hope the BFA are planning to bring in plenty of bleachers as the whole of BDA will want to be there.

    Good for doing work that will keep it safe under our weather conditions for the many spectators & beautify it the same time.
