A presentation today is designed to give tradespeople information on how to capitalise on a hotel development in the East End.

The two-hour event, run by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation, will provide local construction workers with information on work opportunities created by the St Regis Resort in St George’s.

William Spriggs, director of economic and co-operative development with the BEDC, said the event was an “ideal opportunity” for tradespeople to “get an understanding of what the St Regis Resort developers are looking for and how to ensure their business stands out from the competition”.

The construction workers’ seminar will be held at the Bermuda Industrial Union hall in Hamilton.

Mr Spriggs said anyone interested in attending should register early due to limited space.

Laura Purroy, general manager of developer Hotelco Bermuda Holding, will be at the event to discuss construction timelines and answer questions.

Miguel Purroy, director of Hotelco Bermuda Holdings, said in January that he expected piling and foundation work to begin later that month.

Mr Purroy said last year that the first phase of the project, including the main hotel, a casino, a spa, the first two condominium buildings and the revamped golf course, could be open for business at the start of 2021.

Anyone interested in attending the event, which begins at 6pm, should call 292-5570 or e-mail info@bedc.bm
