Nelson Building in Fadian for a month now but today the opening of the one-stop utility center was made official with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The he building was named in honor of CCU board member Gloria B. Nelson.

Governor Eddie Calvo said, "This building the name Gloria Nelson could not only apply to GPA but whether it was the Department of Education headquarters that was built or so many other facilities in this island because she touched so much of this island and what it meant and issues that were so important with that I want to congratulate the Nelson family and what a legacy for this building and GPA having been named after such a great woman a Chamorita as Gloria Nelson."

Spanning over 16,000 square feet over three stories the building is now the permanent home of the Guam Power Authority and the Guam Waterworks Authority.
