SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace resumes construction

Construction work for the Grand Lisboa Palace resumed on Wednesday, ending a nearly two month suspension at the site, Macau Business reports.

Chief executive of SJM Holdings, Ambrose So Shu Fai was speaking to reporters on on the sidelines of the 13th annual SJM Scholarship Awards at Grand Lisboa.

“In the meantime, of course, we have lost about seven to eight weeks and we are trying to readjust the programme of construction to try to catch up with the schedule,” said So.

Construction work halted after the death of a construction worker in June, as a result of a workplace accident.

The chief executive said he expects the property to complete construction works in the second half of 2018.
