The Papua New Guinea University of Technology will see 12 new housing units constructed over the next 9 months following the signing of a K4.9 million contract with PNG Construction Limited.
The 12 two-bedroom units housed in six duplexes is funded through the National Government’s Public Investment Program (PIP) to the university for staff accommodation. The 6 duplexes will be built on the vacant land between Sepik Drive and the Cricket Field at the university.
PNGUoT Vice Chancellor Professor Ora Renagi while signing the construction contract stated that the University was always advancing and continues to deliver quality graduates. The staff
accommodation project was part of the university’s development to build additional housing to recruit more staff to deliver the required quality needed at the university.
The Vice Chancellor at the same time challenged PNG Construction Ltd to deliver quality housing for staff so staff living in them can strive to deliver quality degrees.
PNG Construction Limited General Manager, Peter Vure, who is also an Unitech alumni and a Mechanical Engineer thanked the university and the partnership.
“I’m really honoured to come back and give something back to the school, and I hope that this partnership carries on, and we would also like to participate in whatever we’re supposed to deliver for the school,” Mr Vure added
