CONSTRUCTION works on the $30million Damodar City Centre is nearing completion as tenancy fit-out works are expected to commence in the next four to six weeks.

Damodar Brothers (Films) Limited chief executive officer Div Damodar said they expected contractors of tenants to be on site to start work over the next two weeks.

"The shell of the complex should be completed in the next four to six weeks while tenancy fit outs could take six to 12 weeks depending on the size of the tenancy," he said.

"We have leased 75-80 per cent of lettable space." Mr Damodar said they had not established an opening date but they were still looking at the end of the first quarter this year.

For company projects in Labasa, he said they hoped to commence preliminary technical work on the site once lease formality details were complete.

"Our clientele base is wide and it is great to see that it has grown steadily over the years and maintained the quality from the beginning," he said.

He strongly believes small to medium-sized businesses were crucial for Fiji's economy.

Super Cuts, a barber shop business owned by Faizal Hussein recently signed on as a key tenant.
