Beca is proud to announce that together with local partner Erasito Consultants Pte. Limited (Erasito), we will shortly be commencing a significant upgrade of critical port and transport infrastructure across Fiji.The 40 Bridges and 3 Domestic Jetties Replacement Project is part of an essential programme of work administered by the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA), and funded by a loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), World Bank and the Government of Fiji. It will keep communities connected, help drive economic growth, and enhance resilience to climate change and extreme natural events – hugely important for a region prone to wild weather and tropical cyclones.
Commenting on the project, Beca General Manager International Markets, Stuart Mockett says, “It’s a major infrastructure upgrade project in Fiji, and we’re looking forward to the opportunities and challenges as we embark on this two-year journey. It will help improve road and travel safety, reduce journey times and ensure less ongoing maintenance is required.”
In addition to the technical design of the bridges and wharves, and roading near the structures, the project scope also includes social and environmental safeguards, economic assessments, capacity development, and preparation of procurement packages for construction works tenders.
Erasito Director, Terence Erasito says, “This is a significant project for both Erasito and Beca in Fiji, and vital for the country’s continued growth. This important commission illustrates the special partnership between the two companies, bringing together our technical expertise and local area knowledge to create a formidable team.”
Our shared success in securing the project is reflective of our strong partnership with Erasito, including our joint focus on client service excellence and delivery of infrastructure projects throughout Fiji and the wider Pacific.
