Performance assessment programme for building contractors

The Building and Civil Engineering Contractors Association of Ghana is to institute performance assessment programme for its members, Mr Kweku Amua-Mensah, Coordinator of the Construction Industry Efficiency Improvement Programme, said on Monday.

At a meeting with members of the Western Regional branch of the Building and Civil Engineering Contractors Association of Ghana at Takoradi, he said the programme was to ensure that contractors executed projects excellently for their clients including the government.

Mr Amua-Mensah, former Director of the Building and Road Research Institute of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), said the association would also set up performance rating to enable the public to know the contractors to engage for specific projects.

He said the government was spending so much on construction projects but the performance of some contractors was below expectation.

Mr Amua-Mensah called on building and civil contractors to deliver quality services and products to the government and private clients as physical infrastructural development was a yardstick for assessing the level of development.

He said the association would closely monitor the performance of contractors and award those who efficiently and effectively execute projects.

Mr Amua-Mensah said the excellence award programme of the association was to help re-brand the Ghanaian contractor to improve his performance in order to correct public perception that contractors executed shoddy projects.

He said there were good and dedicated contractors who were doing well but others were in the industry just to make money, execute shoddy projects and use the profession as the springboard.
