Another landmark development for Nambawan Super

The occasion was marked by cultural performances by this Manus Dance group. The ground breaking was performed by (below) Lands Minister Sir Puka Temu, Chairman of Nambawan Super Sir Nagora Bogan and Mr Kostas Constantinou from Lamana Group of companies.

Nambawan Super has again embarked on a new property development in Port Moresby in order to alleviate office space problems for the National Lands Department.

The development is taking place in Waigani and is being purposely built at the cost of K44 million to accommodate the specific needs of the Department of Lands and Physical Planning in serving the people of Papua New Guinea.

During a ground breaking ceremony last week, Chairman of Nambawan Super, Sir Nagora Bogan, said the new development, in which Nambawan Super takes up 65% interest, will be constructed by a new joint venture company, Waigani Asset Limited  with Lamana Development taking the balance of  35% ownership.

Sir Nagora, said the construction of this office building is a result of a landmark decision endorsed by the National Executive Council in June 2007 based on three recommendations which were: 
  • That the Department of Lands and Physical Planning be accommodated in a purpose design building;
  • That a land information database be updated with appropriate hardware and software;
  • and that a professionally designed customer services counter be organised to serve all respective divisions.  

“It has been three years since that decision and extensive work has been undertaken with our investment partner Lamana Development Limited, to create a building suitable for the requirements of the Department of Lands and Physical Planning”, said Sir Nagora.

Features of the new building include: three commercial floors, basement car parking with capacity to store more than 80,000 land title files, service counters, ATM banking facilities and a common library.

The new building has been designed by architects ETS Group, and will be built by Lamana Development Limited.  Construction is expected to be completed in August 2012.

Key officials at the ground breaking ceremony included the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Lands and Physical Planning, Sir Puka Temu, and representatives from Nambawan Super Limited, Lamana Development Ltd and Department of Lands and Physical Planning.
