ST. GEORGE, GRENADA, March 3, 2015 – GIS: The University of the West Indies has brushed aside suggestions that the Keith Mitchell administration is to be blamed for the delay in the Open Campus project in Hope St. Andrew.

Principal of UWI open campus Professor Eudine Barriteau made the disclosure in St.George’s after presenting the cabinet with a proposal for the project.

Claims that the current government was delaying the project have been attributed to opposition sources.

“The feedback is that the cabinet is supportive of the project as we have in fact anticipated, so if they are any misconceptions that there was a delay coming from the government that is totally incorrect”, Barriteau said.

The UWI Open Campus Principal told local journalists that the search for a reliable architect firm was the cause of the delay.
“In fact what was the delay…the Open Campus needed a partnership with a reliable quantity surveying architectural firm and we found that partnership with a firm out of Trinidad and Tobago that has expertise in engineering”.

The Open Campus project in Hope involves two phases during construction.

Phase A features the construction of administration offices, classrooms, early child centres and a national archives while phase B involves the building of a performing arts auditorium, areas for agricultural production as well as research and development.
