Decker Engineering to begin earthworks on GOC OlympAfrica site


Decker Engineering and Construction Limited has agreed to begin earthworks on the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) site at Amasaman for Ghana’s OlympAfrica Center.

The said land was acquired almost a decade ago for the project but all that was done on it was a wall built around it to deter encroachers from invading the land.

After that the land has been left unattended to but after assumption of office, the GOC President, Mr Ben Nunoo Mensah expressed interest in working on the site.

The company which is owned by the GOC President together with his partners would undertake project which valued at GH₵25,000 for free.

According to the company, they would clear and level the land to pave way for the real work to begin.

GOC President has indicated that the first phase of the project would be an office complex which would house the administrative part of the center and would comprise of offices, kitchen and a conference room.


He said the next phase would be about five multi-purpose pitches plus an Olympic size football field with tartan tracks. Then a hostel facility would be added to the next phase to cater for the various national teams.

Nunoo Mensah said the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) has agreed to give the GOC $150,000 to begin the work on the site.

He however added that ANOCA has granted them permission to solicit for funds from corporate bodies to support with the project and in return get a naming right for whichever project they support.


He added that they are currently in talks with Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and Dangote Cement and also called on corporate Ghana to come on board for the realisation of the Ghana OlympAfrica Center.

A few weeks ago, the GOC leadership toured Togo’s facility at the invitation of Allasane T. Diake.
