The Fiji National University will undertake a number of development projects across its campuses next year.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor, Nigel Healey says the new CBHTS building is one of the many projects being undertaken as part of the university’s transformation.
“We will shortly begin construction of a new sports complex, with an indoor basketball court with bleacher seating for tournaments, a large cardiovascular and free weights training area and four flat, multi-purpose exercise rooms.
This project is part of the University’s wider attempt to address the issue of obesity and NCDs here in Fiji, by providing high-quality recreational exercise facilities for students and staff.”
Professor Healey says this year, they carried out a study which identifies the buildings that need to be replaced to create a 21st century university.
He adds through this they now have a ten-year master plan for each of the major campuses in Suva, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba and Labasa.
The VC states later next year, the University will begin work on a new Creative Arts Centre, to replace the Raiwai campus that was damaged in TC Winston.
There are also plans for an administration building and a hospitality hub, with training kitchens and restaurant to prepare chefs of the future.
