Sri Lanka’s Marina Square recommences construction activities
Construction activities of Sri Lanka’s Marina Square development project has reportedly re-commenced from last week.
General Manager, Buddhika Gunarathne has been quoted in the local media as saying, “construction activities will commence with a smaller workforce and will be gradually increased to the full capacity of operations based on the advice of the relevant Authorities.”
He has further stated that all construction activity will commence under strict adherence to all protocols and procedures prescribed by the Health and other Authorities, and that all required approvals have been granted for construction work to begin on the Marina Square Development.
Representing the Main Contractor of the Marina Square project, Zhou Yong has reportedly said, “China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) being a leading company in the world of construction, has the resources, knowledge, experience and the expertise to commence operations and progress towards full capacity as will be permitted by the authorities. However, we are working with our partners and suppliers around the world to make this happen as safely and efficiently as possible.”
Managing Director of Access Engineering PLC, Christopher Joshua has said, “Work on the Marina Square project did not come to a standstill during this period under curfew, we were all working from our homes through regular online meetings to discuss and progress with as much work as possible. Current and potential customers will be happy to note that we have taken this time to work on ways to enhance the common area facilities offered to you and to plan the commencement of construction activities.”
Director Marketing, Shivanka De Zoysa has added, “The design and development team has been spending a lot of time reflecting over ways to improve and enhance the features and facilities offered to the condo-owners of Marina Square. As a result, we have introduced two Squash Courts, two additional Function Halls, a Table Tennis Lounge, Snooker Lounge, Indoor Children’s Play Area, a larger Club House and a Coffee Bar to the already extensive list of common element features that were included.”
Marina Square – Uptown Colombo is a fully integrated mixed development and Sri Lanka’s first and largest harbor front development project by three internationally reputed industry giants; Access Engineering PLC, China Harbour Engineering Company and Mustafa Singapore.
The recommencement of construction work of several large mixed development projects in Sri Lanka is indicative of the returning to normalcy of the country’s economy following the Covid 19 global pandemic. The government of Sri Lanka has already discussed the recommencement of the temporarily stalled development agenda. Sri Lanka’s economic activities and resumption of development work indicates an opening up of business/investment opportunities to the discerning foreign investor in search of the best opportunities.
