In a bid to provide “smart affordable” housing solutions for Barbadians, East Coast Housing Development Limited (ECHDL), a prominent housing developer based in Trinidad is considering a collaboration with the Mia Mottley administration.
Bryan Singh, the executive chairman of ECHDL, said his firm intends to engage in discussions with the government about a potential public-private partnership (PPP) arrangement.
He expressed his belief in the business potential in Barbados, stating, “Barbados is ripe for business, and I feel there is an opportunity…. We are willing to partner with them.
We have tested the waters directly and indirectly, and we are hoping we can approach them again and see how best we can partner together in making it a dream come true for the people of Barbados.”
He shared these insights during an interview with Barbados TODAY from St Kitts where his company recently secured a significant EC$600 million contract to build and finance 2 400 affordable smart homes for the state-owned National Housing Corporation (NHC) in Basseterre.
Singh emphasized that their focus was not merely on building houses but on creating communities, saying: “At the end of the day, people not just looking for houses, they are looking for houses that they can turn into homes, and quality homes, and that is what we are all about.”
