The air-conditioning system has been restored in parts of the Central Administration Building, government announced last week.

The east atrium, the Premier’s Office, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour, and the Survey Department, which is now located at the former Passport Office area, are utilising the central cooling system, Facilities Manager Arriel Donovan said in a press release.

Mr. Donovan added that the entrance and exit doors to the east atrium are now being kept closed to keep the area cool, and visitors are asked to use the designated doors.

The facilities manager said recent work included replacing walls, hanging ceilings, and painting the east atrium.

Floodlights were added outside to illuminate the building and its surroundings.

The Facilities Management Unit is continuing its biweekly maintenance of the complex grounds, including adding cocoa plum trees on the roadway boundary and the inner courtyard by the plaque that commemorates the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria.
