Alexander Builders was commissioned to renovate and restore the sub structure of the inner dome of the Holy Trinity Cathedral which was built in 1911 in the Byzantine revival style. It was designed by Raymond F. Admiral, a New York architect. Its main feature is an eighty-five foot high, copper-covered dome and four minarets, which can be seen from a distance.
The Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kingston is a magnificent structure. The ceilings and walls of this building are filled with beautiful artworks that are now restored to their original glory. Frescoes and murals are again very prominent in the Cathedral. The interior painting of the structure is largely stencil work in oil paint over a cement base; in the ceiling over the sanctuary there are etchings of angels and in the pendants of the domes the four Evangelists. This is the largest cathedral in the English-speaking Caribbean region and it also houses the largest and one of the few remaining pipe organs.

Relax, connect with nature or just enjoy the warm sunshine on a lovely timber deck. We have built several decks in the famous picturesque Blue Lagoon. Not just beautiful and functional our decks are constructed to survive the ravages of inclement weather. This was proven after Hurricane Dean when our client was able to restore their deck in record time after its passing (& with minimal cost) to enjoy lovely candelight dinners before the neighbours could say “Insurance”!
Our client had a great property but wanted a beach. Our team set to work and constructed a beach where there was none before…
