Monterrey, Mexico-based Cemex, S.A.B. de C.V. announced recently that it has been named the primary cement supplier for the Baha Mar tourist complex in Cable Beach, Nassau, being built by CCA Bahamas Limited. It is expected that the complex will house the largest entertainment center in the Caribbean and be completed in December 2014.
As primary supplier, Cemex will provide 110,000 tons of cement for the first phase of the project, which is currently being built on an area of 1,000 acres, and it is intended to be key in maintaining the Bahamas as one of the world’s premiere tourist destinations. The Baha Mar complex is expected to feature world-class hotels and condominiums with more than 1 km of beach among many other amenities.
“This important project, which will generate many construction jobs, gives us great satisfaction because it will contribute to improving the quality of life of many people, which is in line with Cemex’s objective of generating well-being through quality building solutions,” said Carlos González, president of Cemex in the Bahamas.
