Manager behind costly ADOMS building says he’ll quit

In 2013, then PM Spencer broke ground for the start of construction

The board of the Antigua Department of Marine Services and Merchant Shipping (ADOMS) say they’ll accept the resignation of Project Manager Wendell Marshall.

This announcement comes days after Prime Minister Gaston Browne questioned the competence and integrity of Marshall.

The project manager has presided over a building which is delayed by more than three years and which has cost overruns in the millions.

The Cabinet reported today that the construction manager has offered to resign, and the Board will accept that manager’s resignation.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne on Saturday said he would not sign-off on additional funding for the project until the manager resigns.

The headquarters of the ADOMS, construction of which commenced in 2013, is unfinished after five years though it was to have been completed two years after construction commenced.

  1. If he had any pride and concern about how this project would look on his portfolio he would have resigned long time ago. There is no way any future client looking into his background will offer him a job.
    Whenever I do a due diligence on a contractor i personally go to the owner of the houses they constructed to inspect the house and see if the finished are acceptable. Because some construction failures show themselves after five to ten years. And you also speak to the architect to see what problems they had with the contractor. Many Antiguan contractors have no portfolio. Therefore it becomes very difficult to investigate their works

  2. What took him so long to quit?? He is obviously INCOMPETENT, LAZY, WASTEFUL, INDIFFERENT, INEFFICIENT etc etc.

    Whoever made you project manager made a terrible decision. Perhaps they too need to depart.

  3. So because hes about to quit that means we ain’t getting any questions answered ? Quit all you want but tell us where the money gone. Your wealthy enough to quit and not give a rats doodoo but what about the peoples money ? We dont care under what administration it started, continued or whatever, the tax payers need answers.
