Vice President Dr. Bawumia has launched the first-ever comprehensive Ghana Building Code, (Ghana Standards GS1207: 2018).
Building codes are critically important in all countries. They ensure value for money by providing a yardstick against which all construction- related procurement can be measured. The comprehensive Ghana building code will be a game changer as far as ensuring value for money in public construction.
Vice President Dr. Bawumia commended the Ministries of Works and Housing, Trade and Industry, Ghana Standards Authority, Ghana Institution of Engineers, Surveyors and Institute of Architects and, also Building and Road Research Institute through their collaborative efforts in producing the comprehensive building code for Ghana.
