Royal Pine Housing Development
SOD TURNING CEREMONY
Women Turn the Sod- The First Hybrid Solar Community in Trinidad and Tobago!
(14th June, 2022) – “If you can Dream It, You can Own It!”. This was the mantra that encapsulated the SOD Turning Ceremony of the Royal Pine Housing Development on Monday morning at the Robert Village site. This project is a vision of the Ramkaran Contracting Services Limited, to create affordable, sustainable housing for aspiring home owners in the community of Robert Village, Tableland in South Trinidad. Tableland is known for its pineapple cultivation, and according to Mrs. Patries Ramkaran, has the ability and potential to blossom and grow into world-renowned pineapple cultivators similar to the standard of Dole Pineapples in its processing and distribution. She claims, “We intend to collaborate with the pineapple farmers in the area to teach the population of Trinidad and Tobago and extension the rest of the world about the cultivation of pineapples. The knowledge transfer will take place at the Institutional lot.” Similarly, it is an objective of Ramkaran Contracting Services Limited to employ more than 60% of its labour force for this project from the Tableland area.
As such, the team will work closely in collaboration with the community of Tableland, headed by The Member of Parliament for Moruga/ Tableland, The Honourable Michelle Benjamin, who was also in attendance. During her greetings, she thanked the Ramkaran family and has faith that the housing development would bring tremendous benefit for the community and company. Ms. Benjamin acknowledges that the community seems “untouched’ as it is a serene area. Therefore, the concept of the project is remarkable, regarding its environmentally friendly initiatives. “The development is needed because there is a growing population…While persons are being deterred for housing, this project provides a hope to young persons to own a property.”
Similarly, in his exaltation address, Rev. Stephen Mendoza of Revival Missions, encouraged persons to steer to course and create strategies to fulfil their dreams. He states, “In every labour there is profit!” Therefore, you must work and invest to reap your rewards.
The designs of the homes, town houses and apartments of Royal Pine will be modern open concept. Aspiring homeowners will have a choice to choose from 1-3 bedroom designs, each ranging from 500 to 1400 square feet of living. The homes and street lighting will be equipped using Hybrid Solar System. According to Mrs. Ramkaran, this ten (10) acre property will help at least sixty (60) families to walk into their dream of home ownership in this country despite the challenges.
With reference to the United Nations Sustainable Goal 10, Climate Action, it states that “2019 was the second warmest year on record. Carbon Dioxide levels and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Weather Patterns are changing and sea levels rising.” Ramkaran Contracting Services Limited is committed to leave the earth a better place, by designing this project to reduce the impact of pollution and use clean energy. They are happy to support UN Sustainable goal 13-climate change.
Mrs. Patries Ramkaran encourages young home owners especially, that “any dream you want in this world is possible, but you have to believe and do what is necessary and take the necessary steps.” She states, by example, that while her company went through the “No’s” and challenges along the way, that did not mean that she gave up, neither should you. You must persevere!
“Dreaming Needs Solutions to Become Reality”

(May 31, 2022)- Affordable housing is near to impossible to attain due to economic inflation and limited opportunities within Trinidad and Tobago in recent years. Furthermore, with the growing impact of global warming and climate change, there are not many measures adopted by the Caribbean community to mitigate the effects. Ramkaran Contacting Services Limited has sought to bridge both these problems, and provide a solution, by using a Hybrid Solar system to power Royal Pine Housing Development project.
Royal Pine is a gated housing development nested in the southern part of the island of Trinidad, in the community of Warwell Road, Robert Village, Tableland. This new neighbourhood will protect from climate change related risk and be a model for how to live with less impact on the planet. One of the main features of this community is the hybrid solar power which was recognised to be especially integral when the nationwide power outage was experienced on February 16th, 2022, leaving thousands without electricity for 6-18 hours. It’s time to diversify our energy and save our planet.
RCSL has adapted its development framework to meet UN’s Sustainable Development Goals outlined in the 2030 Agenda- specifically goal 11 (Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable) and goal 13 (Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts).
The community consists of nineteen (19) single-family units, thirty (30) town houses, four-(04) apartment complexes, a café and leisure centre including a swimming pool.
The SOD Turning Ceremony will be held on June 13, 2022 at 10:30 am at the project site where the Member for Parliament for Moruga/ Tableland, The Honourable Michelle Benjamin and the Chairman for the Princes Town Regional Corporation, Councilor, Mr. Gowrie Roopnarine, will be joining the Board of Directors, staff and other stakeholders to officially launch the commencement of Royal Pine Housing Development Community.
On May 8th, 2021, Ramkaran Contracting Services Limited (RCSL) , in collaboration with Dream Home Ambassador (DHA), hosted the second installment of “Home For Me”. Unlike the 1st session conducted in 2019, we presented virtually to homeowners in Trinidad and Tobago due to the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic. This sought to be a great success as over 130 persons registered to be a part of the event, where one lucky person won a free house plan.
Author of “Dream It, Own It”, and Managing Director of RCSL, Mrs. Patries Ramkaran did not disappoint as she provided the audience with the insight and process to making their home ownership dreams come true. Topics ranged from changing one’s mindset, budgeting, statutory approvals and the construction.
Another key feature speaker at the event was Ms. Shelly Aqui, the Possibility Coach, who presented “Home Ownership Preparation-Having the Right Mindset.” Both speakers engaged the audience rigorously for holistic development and prepared them in whatever step they were in their home ownership journey.
Finally, participants were rewarded for their engagement in the Home For Me 2021 Webinar; Gerald Hunte, Camille Farray and Paige Forde won their own copy of “Dream It, Own It”, while Mr. Nicholas Taylor walked away with a free house plan courtesy Ramkaran Contracting Services Limited.
‘Home for Me’ is a unique event, that will help you gain insight and knowledge of each stage within the home owning process. ‘Home for Me’ will provide advice on how to finance your first property through, to house construction, so whether you want to buy or build you’ll be equipped with expert knowledge.
If you have specific questions in regard to buying a house, or attaining statutory approval, this is no problem, because our panel of experts will gladly answer your questions. We will cover various topics and share knowledge of best practice in line with the laws of Trinidad and Tobago, as well as real life examples and scenarios.
Our event is an ideal opportunity for anyone who wants to learn about the different processes involved in home ownership and how to get on the property ladder. Our expert advice will also help those that plan to construct their first property. However, if you’re already a homeowner you can also attend our event for valuable property acquisition tips.
