The construction industry in Ghana is becoming cost-efficient and is increasingly applying advanced technologies. The use of precast concrete technology has been embraced by the local construction industry experts. Ghanaian construction professionals prefer the use of precast concrete construction mainly because of low life cycle costs, reduction of on-site waste, speed of construction, and quality of work done.
The Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) is promoting precast construction to the industry. A mandate has been introduced stipulating that building materials including precast concrete products manufactured in Ghana meet optimum requirements and specifications. Consequently, modern and high-quality production equipment will be required to meet the demands of this growing industry.
The construction industry in Ghana is booming and precast technology is increasingly moving into the focus. Now is the perfect time to promote best practice with precast in Ghana and surrounding countries, which will enable you to benefit from the prosperous West African economy. ICCX West Africa will be the new meeting point for the regional concrete and precast industries. Located in Ghana, the country regarded as the focal point for the English speaking countries in Western Africa, the event will be held on Nov 17-18, 2020.
