Sheridan Ming, the assistant buildings manager for the Department of Public Lands and Buildings, has been hailed as an unsung hero for his work with the Public Service Excellence Award.

According to a Government spokeswoman, Mr Ming was praised for his work ethic and his “can-do attitude” in tackling emergencies at all hours.

The spokeswoman said: “In his vast role, he is responsible for maintaining Government buildings and properties to ensure the safety of all occupants and smooth functioning of daily operations.

“A few examples of the myriad of building related matters that Mr Ming has recently resolved include, repairing security system failures, plumbing issues, critical building faults, and HVAC malfunctioning.

“Most importantly, he also met the unexpected challenges of adapting all of Government's buildings to ensure they comply with Covid-19 health and safety regulations. These are all in addition to his regular duties.”

Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier and minister of home affairs, praised Mr Ming for his dedication and hard work.

He said: “We have all witnessed your efforts to go the extra mile and Bermuda is fortunate to have committed public officers like you.”

Derrick Binns, head of the public service, added that Mr Ming’s professionalism and reliability deserved recognition, even if the nature of his work meant that few saw all that he accomplished.

Dr Binns added: “He resolves problems before they have the chance to negatively impact or impede staff or the public.

“His role is instrumental to the general maintenance of the public service, and we are incredibly grateful for his diligence.”
