Part of the Built to Care Ghana Project, 6 new district hospitals and an upgrade to a 7th.
The Ghana Ministry of Health and NMS Infrastructure Ltd. signed a $175 million contract for the delivery of six new district hospitals under its programme to invigorate regional and district health care throughout Ghana. Last week was the launch of the first of six hospitals in the Built to Care Ghana Project.
The construction programme for Shai Osudoku District Hospital at Dodowa began in earnest in October 2014, following resolution of initial statutory hurdles with construction effectively complete in March 2016, suggesting a construction period of under 18 months from greenfield site to fully-equipped functional hospital.
NMSI’s team of best in class architects, engineers and project managers worked in close collaboration with the customer, Ministry of Health, and the end user, Ghana Health Service. One of the key tasks for this project was the involvement of industry initiatives across multiple organisations from the UK and Ghana in support of the delivery of the project.
As part of a consortium Low Energy Designs were the selected British manufacturer considered to have the right LED solution to meet a complex requirement for this ground breaking project! The lighting across the site is hospital grade LED, reducing costs by up to 80% whilst providing effective, efficient Day White lighting. Low Energy Designs delivered more than 1400, indoor and outdoor LED products for this site. The products were designed to limit the amount of different types of lighting across the site. The installation height requirements varied from 2.5m to 6m high, we saw this as a challenge but were able to design and deliver a lighting solution that could meet all of the requirements whilst providing maximum energy savings.
Low Energy Designs are extremely proud to be a part of such a life changing project.
