New Lands Commission Accra, Ghana







The project objective is to design, construct and equip a new head office and regional office building for the New Lands Commission in Accra. The Government of Ghana has allocated the New Lands Commission a plot of 11,73 acres in Accra. The project is financed in parts by the Government of Ghana and a grant from the Federal Republic of Germany through KfW Entwicklungsbank (KfW). The headquarter of the New Lands Commission aims at symbolizing the new spirit of transparency and efficiency. KfW in coorperation with the Government of Ghana aims at financing an administrative building covering all units, divisions and agencies. This building being of an important symbolic standing shall be undertaken as a building in a standard appropriate to accommodate the New Lands Commission and to present a monument of its own. It shall be of representative character. The office spaces will be of a flexible open plan nature to allow for the dynamic nature of the Commissions development and in accordance with changing technical requirements of office usage. The building has been designed environmentally friendly, using renewable energy sources and according to the tropical requirements. The buildings basic shape, a rectangle oriented to the compass axes is a response to the tropical climatic conditions. The long sides of the building face north/south, the short sides face east/west, thus few areas are exposed to the lower angle sun radiation in the morning and evening that are difficult to shade. The building is lifted from the ground, creating a large shaded area underneath and al¬lowing for the landscape to flow under and inside the building. This, in combination with landscaping measures creates a pool of cooler and cleaner air that can be used to ventilate the building and helps to avoid the either humid or dusty direct winds from south and north. Nevertheless the building will have to be equipped with a complete air conditioning system, to guarantee comfort inside the offices when a natural climate control would not be effective. Our aim however is to contribute as much as possible to a comfortable climate by natural means. The shading system of the envelope have been differentiated in relation to solar exposition. A facade of bamboo modular panel will provide different kind of screens: on the facade fac¬ing south they will be closed on the top, side closed on the eastern and western ones and opened towards the sky, to catch as diffuse light as possible, on the northern facade. The External panel will also act as barriers to the unfavourable desert or Atlantic winds. Except for the Harmattan and Monsoon seasons, thus in seasons with milder climate conditions, a natural passive control of inner comfort conditions can be foreseen and the whole architecture has been conceived in compliance with this topic. Ventilation patios provide naturally air-flows due to a combination of chimney thermal driven effect and Venturi acceleration effect, related to open-able windbreak that catch external winds on their top if opportune. When external climate conditions are not appropriate to let air enter the offices, natural airflows will be exploited to ventilate the circulation space that is always shaded and without thermal loads from permanent presence of lights, equipment or employees. When external temperatures and humidity are acceptable, the windows on the facades will lead fresh air inside the offices, providing cooling and the air changes required. Investigation about local materials have also led to individuate “lightened earth”, a modern evolution of the traditional “torchis”, being the most insulating mass and transpiring material, appropriate to ensure a high efficient external envelope: this technique provides prefabricated panels made up by a mixture of ground with “inert” consisting of vegetable fiber or lightweight materials. At Night time, when temperatures are significantly lower than during the day windows will be opened to let air enter the building and cool the structural masses that store heat during the day. The landscaping of the site is as much an ecological machine as it is a pleasant spatial experience: it integrates water-management and security features into all its spatial elements. A system of hills, planted with helophytic plants that can be used for the treatment of waste water, will provide clean water for irrigation and cooling of the site. Combined with rainwater harvested from the roofs of buildings this water is collected and gradually released into the large pond underneath the main building.

Currently Accra skyline is dominated by cranes due to the numerous ongoing projects in the city. the number of cranes towering the city should be increasing soon as new projects are set to begin in 2011...To all the Accra critics; All the posted pics of Accra does not do accra any justice!

this project by Europaconcorsi architects should be a landmark building in accra when completed...very modern, elegant and green...I will take 2 similar style of architecture for accra over 100 international styles skyscraper any given day

[IMG]Takoradi Power Plant Project in Ghana Background One rapidly growing segment at HPI is the development of turnkey, fasttrack electric power generation plants. Recently, HPI was selected to provide the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for a 130 MW power plant for the developing nation of Ghana. Strategy Building on the distributed power concept, the project will use combined cycle turbine technology from the Canadian packager, Orenda Aerospace, based in Mississauga, Ontario. Utilizing high efficiency Zorya-Mashproekt turbine engines, the combined cycle process is expected to achieve near 50% efficiency rating. The plant will use a dual fuel source of light crude oil (LCO) or natural gas. HPI’s unique modular design approach requires the pre-fabrication of major plant systems in the US and Canada allowing for easy assembly and commissioning in-country. This strategy will reduce installation cost, construction lead-time and mitigate risk, while making the configuration easier to repeat in future power plants. Technical Specifications The plant is expected to meet projected load growth in the region and provide grid backup for seasonal shortfalls in the availability of hydroelectric power. The station is designed around two nominally rated 65MW combined cycle modules each powered by two 25.6MW Orenda GT25000 gas turbine genset packages, two unfired HRSGs and one 17.2MW steam turbine genset. The project is scheduled for commercial startup in 2011.[/IMG]

Ghana is investing into Energy is really sweet stuff for such a small country. But Western industry investors will not come there, they will still choose to go to Viet-nam instead.

Given facts that Ghana has 2 major cities on the Atlantic , even Inland isn't far from the coast. with energy and available labour, Power and Infrastructures ( Deep Sea Ports). There will be no excuse why can't manufacturing investors can't be here.

royal_ron2012, you are doing a good job. Keep up the good work. I know that it is hard finding information on the few development taking place in Ghana nowadays.

For apollojoe and popa1980, this is the website from which he found the image.
