Fifty per cent of the ground work of the Fiji’s old Grand Pacific Hotel (GPH) has been completed.

GPH is being renovated by the Fiji National Provident Fund, the Lamana Group of Papua New Guinea and the National Superannuation Fund of PNG.

The operation of the hotel includes the structural construction of three new developments within the hotel vicinity, additional amenities that will feature conference rooms, retail outlets, spas and a ballroom which will cater for more than 600 guests.  

Lamana Development Limited Building manager Rod Bradley said despite current weather conditions they are confident of carrying out works within the given timeframe.

“We have to work smart in ensuring operations are on schedule. The refurbishment of the grand old lady is another challenge; we have to maintain this structure including touch ups on the walls and polishing on the structural frames of the building,” said Bradley.

FNPF acting chief executive Jaoji Koroi said FNPF contributes 25 per cent towards the development and the developments would ensure that original features of the hotel are maintained.
