Following the groundbreaking ceremony by the Prime Minister late last year, consultants have been working on detailed architectural plans and drawings, engineering designs and services.

Tappoo Group executive director Harnish Tappoo said in a statement a geo-tech that study was also done soon after the groundbreaking ceremony.

"A project of this magnitude requires months of detailed planning and design," he said.

"Three firms of local and overseas consultants including architects, structural engineers, and services engineers have been working round the clock on the project in close consultation with us as developers.

"Earthmoving works commenced early this month. These ground preparatory works will be followed by foundation-laying and commencement of full-on building construction."

About 300 jobs are expected to be created when the mall is in operation.

"It will be the first of its type in the Western Division for locals and tourists alike," he added.
