2015 Pacific Games - Port Moresby

Project details: 

The Pacific Games is a major sporting event welcoming 4000 athletes and officials from 24 countries around the Pacific region, with the 2015 event staged in Port Moresby PNG.  A capital works programme including a new Games Village, Aquatic Complex and Stadia valued at over $AUD600M was completed prior to the Games as part of the preparations for the 28 sporting competitions, the opening/closing ceremonies and a cultural programme.

APP was appointed in 2014 to assist the local Games Organising Committee (GOC) with general venue readiness and planning advice around procurement, venue commissioning, overlay and workplace health and safety planning for the event.

In the weeks leading up to the Games APP's team of 11 Project Managers were present at the venues, providing on the ground site management assistance including supervision and works coordination for contractors and volunteers, together with spectator services and event operations assistance. The largest major event ever staged in Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Games were an unqualified success both in terms of effective project delivery and capacity building for the future events to be held in the country.
