During the initial times the buildings were constructed using locally available materials like coral stones, surkhi, coconut timber etc.

Most of the buildings before 1980s were single storied load bearing wall constructions roofed using timber trusses covered with M.P. tiles/AC Sheets.  

The present Port Office building is the first double storied building.  This has been constructed in 1982. 

The construction in these tiny islands is limited to second floor.  

The LPWD is constructing both residential and non-residential buildings.
