This was announced by the Virgin Islands Recovery and Development Agency (RDA) on November 4, 2021.
“Today a tender closing was held at the RDA office for the Demolition and Debris Clearance Works at the Elmore Stoutt High School. We are happy to report that we received 9 tenders from local construction firms…” the RDA posted on its Facebook page.
It said the tenders will now go through the evaluation process and a contract will be awarded to the best bid.
A number of buildings at ESHS, including some under construction, were destroyed by hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017.
Students of ESHS had to be relocated to the old CTL Building in Pasea Estate following the devastating hurricanes and it was not until the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) came to power in early 2019 that the L-Shaped Building, now renamed L. Adorothy Turnbull Building, was refurbished and Junior School students returned to the ESHS compound in Long Bush.
