The much anticipated City Construction and Properties Awards has been launched in Accra to appreciate and reward hardworking professionals in the construction industry.
According to Arch. Nii Teiko Evans Anfrom, Director at Evans-Anfom & Associates, there’s a direct correlation between the level of infrastructure and the productivity of the people in a country.
“There is a link between the productivity of a people, the prosperity of a people and the quality of its building, settlement, and spaces,” he said.
He adds that, the awards will look at every activity involved in the construction industry because, every category has its peculiar problems.
He further explained that, the categories will come in the form of recreational centers, residents, commercial, gated communities, hospitals, single-family houses, apartment blocks, institutional and many more.
“The CCPAwards would be extended to the district levels, engaging the department of rural housing to access constructions at that level”, said Arch. Nii Teiko Evans.
The CCPAwards would not be organized every year but, at least every two years until a strong cause to organize it yearly is realized.
According to discussions and agreement, the CCPAwards would be slated for April 13, 2019 (The date of event has faced further adjustments due to adjudication reasons).
