CXC Headquarters

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project depicted is the second-place entry in the design competition staged by the National Insurance Board for a new Caribbean Examination Council Headquarters Building. The site of the building is an exposed one overlooking the St. George Valley, Lower Collymore Rock, its environs and out to Carlisle Bay. In response to this, the building is designed to capture the views out to the east, south and west while mitigating the impact of the sun on those elevations.

The accommodation provided includes offices for the Examination Administration, Finance, Information Technology, Personnel and the Measurement and Evaluation Division

The buildings portrayed include an 1840’s building which formed the neucleus of the original school and which has been totally restored and one of the several new teaching blocks that constitute the upgraded plant.
