Jimi Classrooms

Verticon has constructed a four in one double classroom at Jimi Secondary School in Jiwaka Province. This project was fully funded by Jimi District Development Authority (JDDA) under the leadership of MP, Hon.Wake Goi.

With a total floor area of 198m², the structure consists of two classrooms and an office space on the ground floor as well as the top floor. The classroom was constructed using treated hardwood/timber frames with Colourbond external cladding, v-crimp and roofing iron.

Located in an extremely remote part of the Jimi District, some materials were transported by helicopter from Mt. Hagen Airport. Other materials were walked six to seven hours in from Wara where the road stops.

Both project management and construction works were undertaken by Verticon as the contractor.
