Mahama Commends Berock

Indigenous construction firm Berock Ventures has been commended for its efficient and timely execution of its projects.

The company, which has been in existence for close to 25 years, has won both national and international competitive biddings to undertake major building, water and civil engineering projects in Ghana.

It recently constructed the seven-storey Ghana Civil Aviation Authority Training Academy which was recently commissioned by President John Mahama.

Cutting the tape to commission the new training academy, President Mahama, who had previously commissioned projects constructed by Berock, commended the firm for its professionalism, saying it was one of the best in the country and urged its management to continue to excel.

Berock Ventures is currently constructing the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital, among others.

The company also constructed the 12-storey Shippers Council building, the first-ever ICT Park, the National Blood Bank and several projects on public university campuses.

It has won a number of awards, locally and internationally, as a result of its project delivery.

It was adjudged the Construction Company of the Year 2015.

A Life Time Achievement award in the Construction Industry was presented to its Executive Chairman Rockon Dogbegah.

Mr. Dogbegah, who has been promoting professionalism and excellence not only in Berock but at the national and international stage, in an interview, urged government to prioritize the establishment of a Construction Industry Development Authority (CIDA) to develop the local capacity and the industry in general.

The Berock Executive Chairman, who has launched a campaign to promote the initiative, believes it is also a panacea to solving the country’s security and unemployment issues.

Chief Executive of Berock, Courage Dogbegah, expressed gratefulness for the commendation and said such recognitions motivates the company to aspire to do more.

He encouraged the government and private sector organisations to be confident in the capabilities of indigenous firms and give them the opportunity to undertake major projects.
