LESC under budget
THE FIRST PHASE of renovations of the conference facilities at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC) has been completed.
It follows the official opening of a multi-storey car park yesterday by Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy.
He told the DAILY NATION it was completed on time, was almost $1 million under budget, and it was vital to LESC’s efforts at providing high-end conference and office space.
According to Sealy: “$9.3 million was budgeted and we spent just over $8.5 million. I think that this is a wonderful story in these times. This is 321 car parking spaces because we recognize that in building out the centre, sprucing up the existing conference facilities and adding 69 000 square feet of office space you will need somewhere for people to park.” (ROG)
