Current Infrastructure Projects
Divine Word University with the support of the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) through its Public Investment Program (PIP) continues to be a proud recipient of the Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) funds.
DWU Madang Campus
The following are infrastructure projects currently in progress at DWU’s Madang Campus:
- Staff Accommodation Project (Newtown) – PGK2.9 million
This project involves the building and construction of three (3) duplexes. Each duplex consists of four, 3-bedroom apartments. Upon completion, this project will provide accommodation for 12 staff of the University.
- Block Wall Perimeter Fencing Project (Phase 4) – PGK700, 000
The block wall perimeter-fencing project was built in phases with the support of DHERST through its PIP program. The fourth phase of the project is a block wall of 122.2m in length. Once complete, the perimeter wall will protect the University’s premises and its assets, staff and students, whilst ultimately indicating its boundaries from the surrounding.
- Water Supply, Storage and Treatment Project (Phase 2) – PGK800, 000
The University is currently in the process of implementing Phase 2 of the Water Supply, Storage and Treatment Project. During the first phase, the University purchased a Reverse Osmosis (RO) water treatment plant that increased the quality of water for consumption and distribution and purchased a 50,000 litre (50k/l) water tank. This has assisted DWU in saving and storing water and reducing cost.
In this second phase, the University has conducted a water feasibility study to identify potential groundwater sources at DWU of sufficient quantity and quality to sustain the current population and to meet future demands. The project will look at implementing required water treatment plants and underground water tanks that will improve the current supply of quality drinking water for distribution and consumption by staff and students.
