09 August, 2021

Capital projects works for Fiji Corrections Facilities continued despite the challenges of the COVID Pandemic.

Newly refurbished staff family quarters in Naboro.

Major works in progress and nearing completion in this quarter included renovations at the Nasinu Cemetery and the major upgrading of a new burial site at the Suva Cemetery area.

This is nearing its completion scheduled for early September 2021 and costing around $527,800.

Other major works in progress include the Family Quarters in Naboro (approx. $450,000), the Training Academy and the new office for the Transport Department at Korovou in Suva. These are expected to be completed by end of October 2021.

Deputy Commissioner of Corrections Senior Superintendent Apakuki Qura says it was important to keep pushing for the completion and renovations of all FCS facilities as it adds to the productivity and safety of the work force.

“A lot of the work dragged during the Pandemic but I thank the perseverance of our Projects team and engineers in helping our contractors get these facilities up and all are nearing completion now. All work was conducted under very strict COVID Protocols.”

“The challenge we had was trying to get approvals from the authorities for outside companies to come and work during the pandemic, so we had to show that we had our own standard and procedures in place to protect people,’’ SSPT Qura said.

SSPT Qura said it was important to continue with works regarding quarters so families and FCS personnel can be comfortable and safe in their own homes in light of the current situation.
