[Kingston, October 25, 2023] – In light of the recent boom in local construction and development, JPS has announced its upcoming Developers Forum – an event aimed at developers and those undertaking construction projects. Increased activity in the sector has seen greater demand for electrical services, material and equipment. JPS will therefore be sharing critical guidance for industry players, as well as new policies and procedures for smooth completion of these projects. The Developers Forum will take place on Monday October 30, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, under the theme: “Educate, Stimulate and Building Partnership.”
The Forum will highlight the need for seamless integration of electricity services into construction projects, in order to avoid delays, added costs, and inconvenience for stakeholders. It will feature business leaders in the electrical industry as well leaders from the Jamaica Developers Association, Jamaica Institute of Architects and Jamaica Mortgage Bank, who will share insights and knowledge on the requirements for project development and implementation.
Additionally, the Developers Forum will offer attendees a platform to establish valuable connections with industry peers, including suppliers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to address their specific questions and concerns regarding electricity services and infrastructure development.
Senior Vice President of Energy Delivery at JPS, Blaine Jarrett, emphasized the importance of this initiative, saying, “The Developers Forum represents our commitment to supporting the construction industry in Jamaica. By engaging with JPS early in the planning process, we can help builders avoid costly delays and streamline their projects.
