Kramer Ausenco signed a contract with the Solomon Islands Government Ministry of Public Service on August 25, 2017, for consulting services for the design, documentation, and project management of the construction of the new Institution of Public Administration and Management (IPAM) Complex.
The facility will accommodate the growing needs for the Solomon Islands Government’s IPAM, and will be located next to the existing Ministry of Public Service Building (MPS), also designed and project managed by Kramer Ausenco in 2008. It will include a bridging level connecting to level one of the existing MPS building. The four-storey building covers a gross floor area of approximately 1600 metres square, and will house most of the training provided by IPAM for the public servants. The contract also covers the redevelopment of the existing Ministry of Public Service level one, to allow for the extension bridge during construction.
Kramer Ausenco Chief Executive and Founder, Frank Kramer, was in Honiara to witness and sign the contract. He said that Kramer Ausenco is committed to developing the Solomon Islands and the South Pacific and stays true to its vision – providing world class infrastructure solutions to the people of Solomon Islands and the South Pacific.
After Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands was the first country that Kramer Ausenco ventured into back in 1981, and since then it has established permanent offices in five other countries including Australia.
