The phase two of the Govind Park redevelopment project will cost just over eight million dollars.

He says they are optimistic that the project will be completed within the projected time frame.

According to Singh, they had to brainstorm a lot of ideas before coming to this point.

“Not just consulting this, we also learned much more about the types of grass, the way of drainage, everything that is to make a stadium, make a ground usable. We had to go through, review a lot of literature to point and identify each and every problems and how we can overcome those problems.”

Western Builders Limited and Heritage Fiji have been awarded the contract for this project after the Tender Evaluation Committee’s decision.

The lead consultancy for the project, Permal Consultants Limited, will be monitoring the construction, ensuring it sticks to within the period.
