Jaredian Design Group to Manage Government House and St. John Battery Renovations

St. John Battery House, Cruz Bay

Gov. Kenneth E. Mapp has approved contracts to oversee the reconstruction of Government House on St. Thomas and the Battery on St. John, which houses the Office of the Governor. Both structures were heavily damaged last year during hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Jaredian Design Group, local architects specializing in historic buildings, will provide engineering, design and oversight of the rehabilitation projects. As provided in the scope of work, Jaredian will provide surveys, architectural drawings, project specifications, hazardous materials remediation, as well as other services detailed in the contracts, which were signed Tuesday on St. Croix.

Notable Jaredian restoration and rehabilitation projects include the Public Finance Authority and the St. Thomas Reformed Church in Charlotte Amalie.

The government contract is valued at $279,540 and the St. John Battery contract at $184,630. The work will be funded via insurance proceeds in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
