Problems with shipping have caused a delay in the construction of the Nunatsiavut Government assembly building in Hopedale.
Bert Pomeroy is the Director of Communications for the Nunatsiavut Government.
He says the delay was caused because of construction materials held up in Goose Bay and Lewisporte.
The project has fallen behind schedule about three-four weeks.
Pomeroy says the contractor, Colby Construction, has increased its workforce to get the construction back on schedule.
To date, the concrete work has been completed on the assembly building.
The building will house the Nunatsiavut Government house of assembly and some offices.
The site of the assembly building is just down the hill from the Amos Comenius Memorial School.
The anticipated completion date for the project is still March, 2011.
