Building restoration

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Thursday, August 14, 2014

A PLAQUE to commemorate the restoration of the 119-year-old Government Service Centre formerly known as the Fiji Visitors Bureau building was unveiled yesterday.

Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said a major project was undertaken to restore the building in central Suva to its original paint colour.

Mr Chand said the building, which had great history attached to it, underwent general refurbishments to maintain its structure .

He said the new paint scheme involved not only the body of the building but also included refurbishment of all panelling.

National Trust of Fiji chairman Robin Yarrow said a nation's heritage helped to make a particular country stand out from others in an often appealing way.

Dulux Paints Fiji provided the colours free of charge.
