Leading public sector super fund Nambawan Super is reaching for the skies in both Lae and Port Moresby with impressive new edifices in the two leading cities of Papua New Guinea.
Nambawan Super’s contribution to the current building and construction boom in PNG are the new-look IPI Building in Lae, central business district (CBD) development in Hunter Street, Port Moresby, and a commercial development at Taurama, Port Moresby, at the site of the old squash courts.
Pacific Architects Consortium (PNG) Ltd is the architects and designers of the multi-million kina projects for Nambawan Super, along with many other new developments in PNG.
“The IPI Building consists of a secure semi-basement car parking for all tenants plus separate off-street visitor parking,” explains PAC associate director/senior project manager Gary Hallard. “It is anticipated that there will be over 1, 000 square metres ground floor retail area, with four floors of commercial space, at 750 square metres per level of net-lettable area.
“The remaining top two penthouse floors contain a mixture of two and three-bedroom boutique apartments, totalling 10, that have unsurpassed views to the Huon Gulf and Salamaua.
“The entire building has been carefully designed to latest technology while being
environmentally-friendly and robust to meet the harsh and diverse climate conditions
experienced in Lae.
“The building will be a landmark building for Lae and Nambawan Super Limited.”
To the Port Moresby CBD, Fletcher Morobe Constructions are up to the fifth level of the nine-level tower, along a busy thoroughfare.
“When completed, the Building is a boutique commercial and residential development offering an attractive streetscape retail facility at ground level, two levels of car parking with one level below ground and the other suspended above ground,” Mr Hallard said.
“This will be followed by four levels of commercial office space, each level containing private ablutions for each individual office. The top two floors will contain six spacious penthouse units that will have stunning views to both Fairfax Harbour and the ocean.
“The building has been designed to the highest international environmental standards.”
In addition to the IPI Building in Lae and CBD Hunter Street, Port Moresby, Nambawan Super is also preparing a third development at Taurama.
Mr Hallard said: “This is a commercial building that comprises the following:
· Semi-basement car parking for 33 tenant’s cars and 12 off-street visitor car parks off Hubert Murray Highway; and
· The three commercial levels and rooftop mezzanine commercial space have a combined net-lettable area of approximately 3, 000 square metres.
“Pacific Architects Consortium has designed the building to the highest international
environmental standards.
“The building is currently ready for tender and construction.”
