A US$50 million re-investment by the Unicomer Group established their local and regional headquarters in Trinidad and Tobago after years of evaluating alternative locations for their expansion. The Freeport campus houses a state of the art distribution centre, a Technical Service Centre (Servitech), offices for both local and regional staff and a 25,000 sq ft. retail outlet (Courts). Most significantly, the campus has vehicular access from the frontage road which runs parallel to the Uriah Butler Highway, the main thoroughfare connecting the north and south of the island.
This is where InvesTT’s expert aftercare services came in.
One of InvesTT’s first strategic interventions for this investment, was to engage the Ministry of Works and Transport on the construction of the frontage road which was critical to the success of the project. The agency also assisted with the fast tracking of the approval process for all relevant construction permits. Our facilitation team acted as a liaison between Town and Country Planning, Environmental Management Agency, Trinidad & Tobago Electricity Commission, Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service, the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) and the Regional Corporation.
