Brazilian firm set to construct 5,000 affordable housing units in Prampram

housingPreparatory works towards the construction of 5,000 affordable housing units by the government is underway at Prampram in the Greater Accra Region.

This came to light when Mr Collins Dauda, Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing paid a visit to the construction site of OAS Construtora from Brazil, the company carrying out the project.

The visit by the Minister, on Thursday, revealed that the construction firm was in the process of constructing its site before the commencement of the housing project.

Mr Andrew Clocanas, Executive Chairman of OAS Ghana said the firm is setting up its factory and other plants, training and maintenance unit, clinic, warehouse and canteen to ensure a smooth work.

He assured that the company would finish the various constructions at the site by the end of October this year to pave way for the commencement of the project.

Mr Collins Dauda said the construction of the affordable housing scheme is in fulfillment of government promise to provide shelter to Ghanaians.

He said the construction firm is expected to build 5,000 housing units across the ten regions of Ghana.

“This housing project is a revolving one because, as the houses are built and sold out, the amount being accrued would be used to build additional houses and it must be put on record that the houses would be sold to any Ghanaian who can afford it”, he said.
