About the Ghana Property Awards
It is a national award dedicated to celebrating excellence in Ghanaian Real Estate, Infrastructure Construction and service providers in the industry.
The Awards, set up to encourage competition and competitive pricing in the Property & Construction Industry was carefully designed to recognize the efforts of both established and up and coming firms.
In addition to Awarding the Property Industry, the awards ceremony serves as a convergence platform for the Industry players. It further offers the platform for the Property Sector, particularly GREDA to address some concerns and channel its grievances and petitions to the Ministry of Housing. Government also gets the opportunity to engage with developers at the Awards.
Over the years, GAPOA has sought to standardize practices in the Real Estate Sector by setting benchmarks, which submitted projects must adhere to. GAPOA has also sought to promote innovativeness, insurance and maintenance cultures in the Sector by putting weights on these in the judging process.
The awards scheme will be looking at new market development with the aim to support the promotion of wholesale and retail market operations, allowing for better recognition of their vital role, support and contribution to national, regional and global demand for property and its related services as the Ghana government seek to accelerate infrastructure development in Ghana.
