THE REPORT ON the opening of Father Damien Centre (CN, Oct 28) stated that the cost of the building, including kindergarten classrooms, was $3.25 million. This amount is only the contract sum awarded to the contractor.

Adding in the professional fees paid to the architect and consultants, cost of fitting and furnishing the centre, and upgrading of the kindergarten, and GST brings total cost to about $4.5million.
