A new 2 storey parking building was erected at the Manukau Campus of the Manukau Institute of Technology
New three level U-shaped telephone exchange and headquarters for SamoaTel, Apia, Samoa, with Speedfloor suspended concrete flooring system. Speedfloor steel joists shipped from New Zealand and installed by Fletcher Construction Ltd.
