The St. Catherine Parish Court is to be refurbished at a cost of $43 million.

The contract for the project was signed yesterday during the quarterly press briefing at the Ministry’s Constant Spring Road offices in St. Andrew.

SM Quality Construction will undertake the project, which is expected to get underway shortly and be completed over a four-month period.

Building Project Consultant at the Justice Ministry Vivian Gordon said that renovations will be extensive.

“We are changing windows, redoing the floors, we are painting, and we are upgrading plumbing and electrical services in the building,” he said.

“We have many areas in the building that we have to look at in terms of the type and quality of the finishes, and all of those things will be addressed by the refurbishing,” Gordon added.
