Ghana: Work On 350-Bed Dormitory for Huni-Valley SHS Begins

Huni Valley — Construction works have begun on a 350-bed girls’ dormitory to improve accommodation at Huni-Valley Senior High School (HVSHS) in the Western Region.

The GH¢6.5 million two-storey building project is being constructed by Abosso Goldfields Limited (AGL) through Gold Fields Ghana Foundation (GFGF).

It was started in August 2020 and is expected to be completed by September this year, according to the contractors Messrs Boison Construction Limited.

Scope of work including masters’ bungalows, washroom with showers, supply of beds, terrazzo floors, an ironing room, a borehole, a storage tank and landscaping, is about 85 per cent complete.

Briefing journalists during a media tour on Thursday at the site, Project Manager, Gold Fields Ghana, Roger Adama, said the foundation would furnish the dormitories with double-decker beds protected from bed bugs.

“In terms of it electrical works, our targets is green energy, and so, we’re going to provide for each of the dormitories with LED lights. There are also masters’ accommodations, two bedrooms with guest rooms each so that teachers could keep eyes on the students.

“We believe in quality. We’ve made enough room in terms of height so that student could have enough ventilation. Again, if you look at the louver blades, we went for the plastic handles, it’s quite expensive. But, in terms of durability, it’s going to last long,” he added.

Mr Adama said a car park with landscape works at the front, which was also in the progress and that an enclosed area at the back would assist the girls to wash their uniforms and dry their clothes.
