Feilden + Mawson bags planning for raft of schemes in Ghana

  • Comment

UK firm Feilden + Mawson is set to work on a number of schemes in a ‘fast growing’ Ghanan city

The London-based practice is part of a consortium of built environment companies that has received planning permission for a new city hall in Kumasi.

It has also signed an agreement for a major development near the airport and hopes to get a bus rapid transit system underway soon.

Feilden + Mawson is joined in the JustGhana consortium by Arup and Elsie Owusu Architects as well as WCN advisory board member and former Newham Council regeneration chief Clive Dutton.

The consortium recently helped Kumasi join the World Cities Network, which aims to accelerate development of urban infrastructure.

Elsie Owusu, partner at F+M as well as founder of her own practice, told AJ there was room for more UK architects to work in the fast growing city.

‘We feel very privileged to have been appointed to do this work and would like to bring in more architects to Ghana,’ she said.

‘There are possibilities further down the line for UK architects both in Kumasi and in Accra.’

Kumasi mayor Kojo Bonsu said the city looked forward to working with the WCN on the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Dutton said: ‘Mayor Bonsu’s strategic plans allow Kumasi to engage with leading world cities such as Barcelona, Helsinki, London, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo.’
