PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands, Monday, November 27th, 2017 – Two months after the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria through the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Airports Authority is poised for restoration to the Grand Turk International Airport.
Following damage to Grand Turk Airport, the mandatory assessment by the airport’s insurers have been completed as well as the first stage of the government’s tendering process. After an eight-week advertisement for a quantity surveying firm, a preferred bidder has been identified.
Once the quantity surveying firm has been engaged, they will prepare a scope of works for the contractors to bid on. Advertisements for bids normally run for six weeks, before tenders are evaluated and a contract is awarded.
Hurricanes Irma and Maria wreaked havoc in the Caribbean with the Turks and Caicos Islands suffering significant losses.
