The Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) is engaging 40 pre-qualified contractors on the construction of duplexes at Perseverance, East Bank Demerara. The Agency will be constructing 40 duplexes in Perseverance.
The first phase of this development is scheduled to commence on August 5, with the construction of five single-story concrete duplexes.
A meeting held on Thursday was also attended by officials from the Guyana Forestry Commission and the Guyana Revenue Authority.
The collaboration with the Guyana Forestry Commission saw contractors receiving information pertaining to the specifications of lesser used wood species such as Tatabu, Shibadan, Manni, Determa, and Tauroniro. These are to be incorporated in the design of the houses.
The Guyana Revenue Authority provided contractors with details on zero rated and exempt items in the construction industry as well as the service tax to be charged on the finished products.
The contractors raised concerns about the quality of lumber sold by local saw-millers.
Minister within the Ministry of Communities, with responsibility for housing, Valerie Patterson gave an undertaking to the contractors that she would have a meeting with sawmillers to ensure that quality products are supplied. (DPI)
