Old St George’s Police Station up for renovation
The Government is inviting expressions of interest for the renovation and use of the former police station in the Town of St George.
The station on York Street in the Olde Towne was first closed in 2007, but later reopened and operated on a part-time basis.
It was shuttered in 2012 for repairs after years of complaints about its condition.
Since then, there have been periodic calls for it to reopen but Wayne Caines, then the Minister of National Security, said in 2017 that the building had deteriorated to the point that it was no longer fit for use.
The East End is now covered by the Southside Police Station in St David’s as well as a community policing office on Somers Wharf in St George’s.
The new office opened last December and provides a base of operations for community police officers in the Olde Towne and can also be used by response officers.
The invitation by the Ministry of Public Works and the Department of Public Lands and Buildings sets a deadline of 3pm on December 21 for the receipt of proposals.
Expression of interest packs can be collected from the public works ministry office in the General Post Office building at 53 Church Street, Hamilton.
An information pack can be requested by sending an e-mail to email@example.com/procurement-notices, or can be accessed at www.gov.bm/procurement-notices.
The ministry said it is not bound to accept any proposal made.
