The Vice-Chancellor of Takoradi Technical University, Rev. Prof. John Frank Eshun has handed over sites for different construction projects for the university to two contractors.
The first site which was presented to Messrs Donajos Construction Ltd is to be used for the construction of a five-storey ICT centre with 4 laboratories, 14 offices and a conference room on each floor.
Handing over the site and drawings of the building to the contractor, Rev. Prof. John Frank Eshun urged the contractor to do a quality work with befitting access points that meets the demands of the day.
‘I have observed that anytime such projects are being undertaken, the concerns and suggestions of the user agencies are not considered. I want you to incorporate all the suggestions and concerns of the user Departments to avoid chiseling and other works after the project has been completed” he noted.
The Director of Works and Physical Development, Engr. Philip Kwaw said the two-year contract has been awarded to one of the experienced contractors in the Western Region.
The Managing Director of Donajos Company Ltd., Nana Kojo Ansah expressed his appreciation to the Management for the confidence reposed in his company and promised to work to the specifications stated in the drawings and deliver within the time given.
The project is to cost Thirty-Eight Million Ghana cedis.
The second site was also presented to Stephen Kwagyah Limited for the construction of a Basic School for the university. This project is to take one year and consists of six classrooms, washrooms and a nursery as well.
The Vice Chancellor said the need to construct the basic school is to satisfy the demands of majority of staff who are also parents and want their wards to be close to them while they work.
Present at the two ceremonies were the Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Victor Kweku Bondzie Micah, the Registrar, Dr. Moses Maclean Abnory, and other management members and staff of the university.
