Ministry of Health Ghana / NMS Infrastructure Limited
This $175m project was commissioned by the Ministry of Health. It involves the design and delivery of six fully equipped, 120-bed district hospitals: in Abetifi in the Kwahu East District, Fomena in the Adansi Nunta District, Dodowa in the Dangme West District, Garu in the Garu-Timpani District, Kumawu in the Sekyere District and in Sekondi in the Western Region.
A key part of CampbellReith’s involvement in these projects was the practice’s commitment to knowledge transfer to industry professionals in Ghana. At various stages throughout the project, we hosted engineers from Ghana, who visited our UK offices for training. We also provided local training to engineering consultants and contractors involved with the project, in Ghana.
In addition to the building structures, foundations and drainage design, CampbellReith was also responsible for designing all the access roads and onsite roads and parking areas to achieve year-round access to these key sites of vital importance to the local communities. GIS was used to map site contours and to plot soil thicknesses across the site. The initial masterplan was then incorporated into a digital 3D model for building and infrastructure layouts.
The project has been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards, including the ICE Engineered in London and Engineered in the South East Awards, and before that it was the winner of the Banker Magazine’s Infrastructure and Project Finance award for Africa (Citi, JP Morgan and Barclays Ghana), as well as Outstanding International Architecture Project in the British Expertise International Awards.
