Gibraltar housing company interested in Guyana
Officials of Baupanel Systems Limited, a diverse worldwide group of companies with a commitment to affordable and sustainable homes is eying Guyana.
Officials of the company met President Donald Ramotar and Minister of Finance Dr. Ashni Singh today, according to the Government Information Agency.
The officials included Chairman David Kendrick, Managing Director Kou Hurst and Paul Khullar, Marketing and Communications.
Baupanel is a seismically resistant, thermally insulating building system based on a set of structural panels made up of expanded polystyrene (EPS) with a basic frame attached to the side of the panels, GINA said. The frame consists of highly resistant steel mesh and corrugated bars linked together with electrically welded steel connectors.
The company is headquartered in Gibraltar – just off of Spain – with ongoing projects in the Caribbean, Spain, Bangladesh, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and India, GINA said.
“We build communities not houses so we are looking at the fully integrated system, infrastructure, finance, making houses available at reasonable price… listening to what the people want and then delivering those houses,” Kendrick told GINA.
GINA said the officials have scheduled a meeting with Minister of Housing and Water Irfaan Ali.
