The National Works Agency’s (NWA) operations in Hanover should be significantly boosted by the opening of its new office, constructed in the parish’s capital, Lucea, at a cost of approximately $25 million.

The facility, located at Haughton Court, comprises a reception area; conference, filing, and emergency rooms; kitchenette; male and female bathroom facilities; and two offices.

The new office replaces the one at Fort Charlotte, also in Lucea, which the management and staff previously occupied. It is expected to, among other things,  significantly enhance the employees’ welfare, and customer relations.

The facility was officially opened by Transport, Works and Housing State Minister, Hon Richard Azan, during a ceremony on March 7.

Delivering the keynote address, Mr. Azan underscored the importance of creating an environment conducive to optimum service delivery by the NWA’s management and staff, which guarantees customer satisfaction.

He noted that several of the NWA’s other parish offices currently require refurbishing, and indicated that construction of at least one more office, before the end of the 2014 calendar year, is being contemplated.

Water, Land, Environment, and Climate Change State Minister and Member of Parliament for Western Hanover, where the new NWA office is located, Hon. Ian Hayles, complimented the staff on the quality of their work and services delivered across the parish while operating from their previous location.

He also welcomed construction and opening  of the new office, while expressing the hope that the facility will serve to further boost the staff’s outputs.

Meanwhile, NWA Chief Executive Officer, E. G. Hunter, in his comments, also commended the staff’s commitment to service, while operating from the old complex, adding that he anticipates even greater outputs from them, working out of the new office.

“I know that the quality of the (new) accommodation is indicative of the quality of the work that we will put on the ground. The motivation is there, the comfort is there, and the performance is expected,” he stated.
