Work started this weekend on the demolition of the Valerie T. Scott building on Reid Street in Hamilton.

A Government spokesperson previously said, “The Ministry of Public Works advises the public of road closures and parking restrictions in the City of Hamilton beginning this Friday, 28 February until the end of day on Sunday, 1 March to accommodate demolition of the Valerie T. Scott building located at 60 Reid Street.

“Prior to this demolition – in an effort to save on costs, the windows, blinds, front door fixtures & fittings of the Valerie T. Scott building will be removed to be reused,” said Minister of Public Works, Lt. Col David Burch.

“Once these items are removed, demolition of this building will proceed followed shortly thereafter by Allenhurst to make way for the new Ottiwell A. Simmons Arbitration Centre.”

“Demolition plans for Allenhurst, located adjacent to the Valerie Scott building at 42 Parliament Street are being finalized and updates will be provided as they are available,” a spokesperson added.

    I hope to be re used to save the PUBLIC money. Thinking about it whatever happened to all the cedar from the old U>S.Base commanders house?

  2. Jack Archer says:

    Oh look! Island Construction … well, well, well ….

  3. Hello says:

    Oh is that Island Construction I see doing the job ? What’s new?!

  4. hanky panky says:

    I guess there was absolutely no other firm who was willing to work at the weekend … can be the only explanation …

  5. wahoo says:

    Island won the bid again?

  6. Trump supporter says:

    Somethings that make you say. Hmmm

  7. drew says:

    I see ‘ol Zane is making money off this.

  8. Bermuda born... Bermuda raised says:

    I’m not taking a positioN here but have an honest question… while the company is incredibly reputable, should it be allowed that a government minister’s construction company be allowed to do public works?

    • Sad says:

      I’m no fan of the current PLP but as long as everything is above board and went thru a proper bidding process, I don’t see why not. Because Zane is a Minister should not give him an advantage over the competition, but it also should not be a disadvantage either.

    • saud says:

      Not in any first world country.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      “should it be allowed that a government minister’s construction company be allowed to do public works?”

      Yes. Any decision to exclude IC from work based on Zane’s political affiliation would almost certainly amount to discrimination on the basis of political opinion. As long as the job was put out to tender and IC’s bid was fair then there should be no objection.

  9. North View says:

    Wow. Yellow and blue. Who would have ever thought.

  10. Sparkles says:

    Who cares though, when OBA/UBP is the government they only use D@J so what’s the problem?

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      Actually, D&J were outsiders. Sealand and BC&M got most of the Government work in the 1980s and 1990s.

  11. Mark says:

    That’s why Zane likes Pee-El-Pee green – take the money and run!

  12. Is the PLP working for you says:

    Friends and family at it again.

  13. mixitup says:

    Drove by the Airport the other day and saw OBA’s Jeff Sousa’s landscaping company relishing in that massive landscaping contract, is that the biggest one you’ve gotten Mr. Sousa? Nonetheless, I’m sure he will do a marvelous job.

  14. cedar stump says:

    Friends and family smashing Bermuda AGAIN ? Wake up Bermuda. 25~11 does this you fools.

  15. Evie says:

    Well he probably was at least $500,000.00 less than any other company. Saving Bermuda n our government money we’ll done Zane Don’t hate the players hate the game.

  16. Hope says:

    What was wrong with the old building? Just out of interest.

  17. puzzled says:

    The more things change………never mind.
    Island construction/Island destruction.
    Some irony in here..
