LGL Kunaiye Karanas Klab

Design and construction management of a social club for the local village community. The Kunaiye Karanas Klab is a two-storey dance hall, restaurant, meeting room, bar and kitchens, and storage areas. After the original construction was condemned because of poor design and building practices, Assai was engaged to provide services including consultation, design and construction.

The existing, partially built structure was demolished under a community-administered contract. Assai’s construction methodology incorporated pre-assembled panels, which provided quality control of materials. The Assai-established Lihir workshop provided pre fab systems that local labour quickly constructed on site.
