Kumasi shopping centre taking shape
A steel-framed market in Kumasi, Ghana, is quickly taking shape with steelwork from the UK.
UK Export Finance (UKEF) has provided £70.3M of support to develop and modernise the Kumasi Central Market on the requirement that a UK-based company was awarded the contract.
BHC was named as the structural steelwork subcontractor by British firm, Contracta Construction UK, in association with UKEF.
More than 8,000t of steelwork from British Steel has been fabricated and shipped to Ghana by BHC, where its onsite team is undertaking the erection.
The market will feature 6,500 market spaces to lease, 5,400 cold stores, 800 kiosks, 50 restaurants, 210 stalls for fishmongers and butchers, 40 livestock stalls, a police station, fire station, post office and a hospital.
