Photos: Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Repair Work

March 30, 2015

Last week, Minister of Public Works Craig Cannonier attended a site visit at the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse in order to see the completed roof works at the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Restaurant.

A government spokesperson said, “The high winds from Hurricane Gonzalo had removed the majority of the slate from the southern side of the roof which covers the kitchen to the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Restaurant.”

“Upon inspection of the exposed rafters, Public Works engineers determined that the roof members were rotten and the entire roof had to be replaced.”

“In addition to the roof works, several walls had to be chipped and hacked for re-plastering, new ceilings were installed and all the electrical, inclusive of fire and security alarms were upgraded.”

“As the Minister for Public Works, I must congratulate this team for a job well done, this is some real quality work, done in a timely fashion and under budget,” said Minister Cannonier.

“The works were completed in eight weeks which was incredible considering we had a few months of very poor weather, with lots of high winds and rain. I am truly impressed with how committed and motivated this team was to completing this project.”

“The Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Restaurant reopened on March 27th.”
