Agreement inked for construction of 200 houses at Leonora


A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was on Friday inked between the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) and South Atlantic Logistics and General Services Inc. for the construction of 200 three-bedroom flat houses at Leonora on the West Coast of Demerara.

The agreement was signed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the CH&PA, Sherwyn Greaves and New Century International Founder and CEO, Alex De La Cruz.

Each home will measure 862 square feet, which is 62 more square feet than the other three-bedroom homes being constructed under the national housing programme.

The homes will, however, remain at the same cost of $9 million. Moreover, each unit will be constructed on approximately 5,000 square feet of land, using interlocking columns and blocks and without the use of mortar. The columns will also form a part of the foundation of the homes.

Ministers of Housing and Water, Collin Croal and Susan Rodrigues; U.S. Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch; Senior Commercial Officer at the U.S.-Guyana Embassy’s Department of Commerce, Daniel Gaines; New Century International Vice President, David Bishop and Director, Jose Aguilella and other officials attended the signing which took place at the National Stadium, Providence, the site of Building Expo 2023.
