PMB: Colonial buildings renovation to start at last

2008-06-25 00:00

Yesterday morning at the Colonial Buildings there was a site handover to GVK-Siyazama contractors, who will be undertaking the building’s refurbishment as well as the construction of a parking garage at the rear. The project is scheduled to take two years at a cost of R80 million.

The restored building will house the Master of the Supreme Court offices. The building has stood empty since 1997.

Plans for the refurbishment were first announced in 2004. In March 2007, GVK-Siyazama took legal action over the awarding of the refurbishment tender to G.Liviera and Sons, and was awarded the tender following a Durban High Court judgment and a review and appeal process.
