Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
May 08, 2008 (SKNIS)
Persons involved in the service industry, landscaping, construction and heavy trucking fields have all been beneficiaries of the many developments taking place in St. Kitts and Nevis.
This was stressed by the Vice President of Auberge Firesky Ellis Hazel, during a Cabinet and media tour of the ongoing work at Christophe Harbour last week. Mr. Hazel noted that the project construction of the Beach House Bungalows and the accompanying restaurant was managed by Robert “˜Bobby’ Morris. The buildings were erected by a crew from Allies Construction Company based in Halfway Tree, while the grounds were styled by Craig Collins International Landscape Architecture from Nevis.
On this week’s edition of the SKNIS radio magazine Perspectives, persons involved in heavy trucking touted the boom in the construction industry.
“The change from the sugar industry to the tourism industry has brought a lot of [benefits] for the truckers,” said Kenrick Simmonds, the owner of a small trucking firm. “[There] is more development now due to the change and that creates more work now for the truckers and the guy with the heavy equipment.”
