Please will you provide a breakdown of all the costs, including new equipment, for DfI to move to Beresford house at Bellozanne.
As part of the rationalisation of office space and consolidation of sites across which the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) operates, the Beresford House offices have been remodelled and brought up to modern safety, working and wellbeing standards. This included the relocation of a non-DfI States of Jersey team to office accommodation in Hill Street from Beresford House as part of the office rationalisation.
The costs of the works at Beresford House can be summarised as:
|Building Work / Decoration||£69,804.80 |
|Electrical / Data Cabling and Installation||£20,348.77|
|Fire / Security Systems||£6,543|
|Furniture and Equipment / Moving Costs||£57,323.79|
|Existing occupants relocation costs||£25,591.13|
Where appropriate some works have been undertaken by DfI staff and their costs are also included in the above figures.
The refurbishment of the Bellozanne site is part of DfI’s office strategy which saves the cost to the taxpayer of building a new £4m facility by refurbishing existing properties and freeing up the South Hill site for sale and redevelopment.
