Bacchus Design & Construction Receives the Hon Henry Channon Award from the SVG Embassy in Taiwan

On October 27, 2022, as Saint Vincent and the Grenadines celebrated its 43rd anniversary of independence, the Embassy of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Republic of China (Taiwan) presented Bacchus Design & Construction with l hon. Henry Channon Award on behalf of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Environmental Fund (SVGEF).

The Henry Channon Award was established by the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Environmental Fund (SVGEF) in honor of the late Chairman, the Honorable Henry Channon, who led the SVGEF with distinction until upon his death at the end of 2021.

It was Channon’s vision that the Cumberland Nature Trail be an example of excellence in ecotourism. We honor his memory by ensuring that the style of architecture used on the Trail is world class. Hence the Cumberland Trail Architectural Design Competition; Hon. The Henry Channon Prize was launched for the best conceptual design of the Trail’s bridges and other infrastructure works.

According to a statement, five incredible designs entered the SVGEF’s Henry Channon Prize. A diverse panel of stakeholders including: Ministry of Tourism, National Parks, Forests, Engineer, SVGEF representatives all judged the designs together.

Bacchus Design and Construction (BDC) received the most votes to win the contest. Titled “The Amazona Guildingii Experience,” Bacchus’ design will be emblematic of the endemic parrot of St. Vincent. A first for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Bacchus bridge designs will have unique shapes and constructions of the parrot’s skeletal structure and inhabited trees. The viewing platform will be both recreational and scientific, as the census of parrots can be carried out from it.
