County government hands over offices construction project to a new contractor

Nandi governor Stephen Sang on Thursday commissioned the completion of the Complex County office building to a new contractor.

Bowen Building Contractors LTD is set to officially begin completion of the remaining works which include all mechanical works, doors, windows, and decorations. The contract takes one year.

The project which commenced in 2014 was supposed to be finalized within two years but stalled in 2016 due to a number of challenges including lack of funds.

Speaking during the event Governor Sang said as a government they had addressed the challenges and now the project has been cleared to proceed.

The governor said among the reasons why the project had stalled was due to an investigation by the EACC and a caution from the National Constructions Authority (NCA).

“As County government we are willing to correct and complete projects so that we achieve value for money. We now have clearance from the ministry of public works which conducted an assessment and made a recommendation on how to strengthen the building as well as from the EACC thus there is no reason for the project to stall,” pointed out Sang.

He further assured the contractor that his government will provide full support to enable them work around the clock to ensure the facility is completed within the stipulated period.

Sang said his government would complete all stalled projects within the county once cleared by investigating authorities. Among the projects are a medical facility at Kabiyet and the Kipchoge Keino Stadium.

Area County Executive Committee member for Finance Alfred Lagat on his part said they have been allocating funds to the project since March 2016 and there is hope for it to be completed as scheduled.

Lagat urged the County engineers to ensure documentation is done as per the law to ensure the works progress smoothly and swiftly.

“We initially allocated Sh50 million to the project but we were unable to execute the project because it was under investigation by the EACC. We obtained clearance in March 2016 and am happy to say that we are now able to embark on the construction,” said Lagat
