The Vice President noted that “Today marks a significant milestone in the 30 years history of BOST, having transitioned from Diamond House through Heritage Towers to Roman Ridge, Airport Residential and Dzorwulu; finally, the company has found its permanent location,” he said.
The building was conceived around 2015 as part of plans to ensure that BOST staff work in a conducive environment.
On 15th June 2015, BOST engaged a construction company to design, build and finance the construction of a new Head Office building, 7-storey twin blocks at a total cost of $39 million.
The building was to be completed in 24 months.
Between 2016 and 2022, the project underwent a value-for-money audit, an EOCO audit, a re-evaluation by an independent valuer, PPA ratification and a valuation for the updated scope. But notwithstanding all these challenges, the building has finally been completed and commissioned.
The new head office building is located on the Gulf Street, South Legon, Accra.
