The move to the new Customs
House at the Government Campus,
Richmond Street, Port-of-Spain, is 98
per cent complete.
According to members of staff who
are extremely pleased with the new
facility, the spacious offices are "a dream
compared to what we were in."
Originally scheduled to begin moving
by the end of January, the phased move
did not begin until late last month.
The first phase took place between
March 20 to 23, the second between
March 27 to 30, and the third between
April 2 to 6.
With only the IT department left to
complete the move, senior officials said
the final phase will take place "soon."
Approximately 200 members of staff
are now occupying the new premises.
Expressing confidence in the capability
of the officers who ensured the move
was seamlessly transitioned over the
past several months, the senior officers
commended staffers for their commit-
ment to the uninterrupted service to
Boasting that there were no shut-
downs or delays associated with the
move, one official said: "We are proud
that the transfer took place without any
disruption in the services offered to the
public, who can now access a modern

Having received conditional approvals
as the new building is outfitted with
the requisite emergency exits, fire hoses,
smoke detectors and ample water
hydrants, officials anticipated that the
fire drill and air-quality tests which were
the final two requirements to be ful-
filled---would be done shortly.
Contacted yesterday, president of the
Public Services Association Watson Duke
confirmed he had toured the new build-
ing and was satisfied with the offer-
During a tour of the new building
last December, Housing and Urban
Development Minister Dr Roodal
Moonilal commended the contractor
Exeqtech, for its efforts to complete
renovation and refurbishment works
within a seven-month period, at a cost
of $77 million.
The new building boasts 1.3 million
square feet of office space and features
ten floors which contain executive
offices, a library, a cafeteria, conference
rooms, break rooms, storage areas, meet-
