Second Ghana Construction Awards launched

HousingThe second edition of the Ghana Construction Awards has been launched in Accra to honour companies and individuals for their accomplishments and strides in Ghana’s construction industry.

The event, organised by InstinctWave, comes off on October 8, 2016 at the Kempinski Gold Coast City Hotel in Accra.

Mr Akin Naphtal, the Chief Executive Officer of InstinctWave, said the awards would help showcase how the construction industry was pivotal to the economy whiles recognising and rewarding companies who were pushing new frontiers and had been exceptional in the past years.
“The construction sector plays an important role in economic growth, for instance the industry contributed about 11.8 per cent to Ghana’s overall GDP in 2013.

“However, the construction sector has been overlooked in terms of rewarding innovation and creativity.

“Our goal is to celebrate the achievements of those construction companies who have made it their responsibility to transform the construction industry and advance the country’s infrastructural development,” he said.

Mr Napthal said in recent times the construction and housing industry had played a significant role in national development.

He said Ghana’s infrastructural agenda was possible due to the massive investment and contribution by players in the industry and though challenges like private sector development, growth and sustainability of professionalism still persisted, the impact of the sector could not be overlooked.

“There is, therefore, the need for a concerted effort to reward and celebrate industry players bracing the challenge and fostering new infrastructural projects across the length and breadth of the country.

“What we want to achieve with the Ghana Construction Awards is to celebrate and reward hard work, exceptional leadership and innovation in the industry. We are bringing together clients, stakeholders, investors, industry players and experts to network and celebrate in a relaxed atmosphere,” Mr Naphtal said.

The Ghana Construction Awards will also provide the platform for stakeholders to advocate for the industrialisation of the country by way of investments in civil engineering, building, industrial and residential construction.

As part of the programme, the organisers unveiled the various categories of the awards that reflect a better representation of the industry.

Mr Naphtal indicated that the new award categories were admitted after careful research based on market intelligence and submissions by industry experts.
