Last unit to move
GOVERNMENT’S OLD National Insurance Building on Fairchild Street, The City, is all but abandoned.
The controversial building has been at the centre of several demonstrations for years from various groups of Government workers who have complained over the years that the structure was a sick building. As such, departments such as Land Tax – which relocated last month – have staged sit-down protests against the conditions.
Today, however, the only department still housed in the building is the Vector Control Unit. And in a telephone interview last Thursday, Chief Environmental Health Officer Tyrone Applewhaite said this would not be the case for too long.
“We are in the process of moving and will be gone in the near future, hopefully within two to three weeks,” he told the DAILY?NATION.
