Mission / Core Values
The Mission of the Corporation is to fulfill its role as the Government's primary developer of choice through the physical development and rehabilitation of urban and other designated areas. This will be achieved in accordance with aesthetically pleasing, environmentally sound and commercially viable principles.
The Mission was set in the context of the country's vision for innovation for lasting prosperity. The visualisation of the urban centre of the 21st century is one of a portrait community in which interests in culture, history education, entertainment and government are well balanced with commerce. Its realization will be reflected in rich urban environments which will be the product of well designed and managed public spaces; the preservation of historic sites; medium scale development projects which serve commercial and growing residential needs; and the development of small business.
UDeCOTT embraces this vision in all that we do to work as directed by the Government to help build a first world nation and to develop all our people.
UDeCOTT is guided by the following Corporate Values:
Value for Money
We seek to get value for money in all our projects. Best quality at best available price for all that we do.
We are actively involved in managing the affairs of UDeCOTT, by always giving 100% in all our tasks.
Confident in the knowledge base and skill set of all we employ, we conduct our business with the confidence that we can get the job done, and done well!
Recognising our role as the Government's primary developer of choice, we are held accountable for all that we do.
Like a well-oiled machine, we are recognized for our efficient and effective performance and we are always in pursuit of excellence.
We are professional at all times and expect the highest work ethics from ourselves and those with whom we interact.
UDeCOTT's Logo Description
The UDeCOTT logo was created to reflect our developing portfolio, commitment to culture and environment and our staff's dedication to moving the Government's vision forward.
The Red represents the energy and vitality of the staff of UDeCOTT and the people who work with us. The Black tinges represent land of the country we are developing in line with the vision for this country.
The motif is reminiscent of three things:
A flower to represent our commitment to work while respecting our environment. The petals of the flower are U-shaped to show we are working for YOU, the population of Trinidad and Tobago
A steelpan to show our commitment to develop our nation while respecting our cultural and economic landscape
A cog to represent UDeCOTT being one of the many entities working together to move the country forward like the parts of a fully functioning machine.
UDeCOTT - we are in constant motion - working for YOU, the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
