An $8.34 million brand new school is expected to be constructed at Queen Victoria School in Tailevu.

“People should expect a state of the art building after reconstruction works are completed; the first stages of reconstruction costs around US$4million  (F$8.34m) and it is expected to increase as we go further,” said PT Audie Building Industry managing director Ozie Moechlis.

The Indonesians, who took up the Adopt a School campaign, targeted the leading boys’ boarding school in the country.

PT Audie Building Industry is a leading steel firm in Indonesia supplying a large percentage of all metal roofing products and they specialise in construction of high-rise buildings and building structures.

Mr Moechlis gave a briefing of the layout of their plans yesterday to the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces, Deputy Commander, Brigadier–General Mohammed Aziz.

“The school dormitories will be demolished and we are going to replace it with two-storey buildings; we are going to start from scratch,” Mr Moechlis said.

“Most of our construction materials will be brought in from Indonesia; only 20 per cent will be provided locally,” Mr Moechlis said.

“The interior and exterior materials will be brought in from Indonesia like roofing; we will be using our own products; the buildings will be constructed in a way to withstand cyclones in the future.”

Mr Moechlis said 40 large containers loaded with construction materials were expected to arrive in the country by the end of this month.

“We will start with the reconstruction of the school’s chapel and when the next batch of Indonesia military engineers arrive into the country then we will commence with the second stages which is the reconstruction of school buildings and dormitories.”
