About us

Who we are

We are Ohemaa Green Housing (OGH), an start-up initiative  and future  alternative construction company that enables to reduce the global plastic production by creating design-orientated, affordable tiny houses with  building blocks made of recycled plastic waste in Ghana.

What we do

We are currently building a supply chain which serves to:

 

1.) produce building blocks made of recycled  plastic waste

in Ghana with primarily locally sourced plastic waste.

 

2.) build Tiny Houses with the building blocks made of recycled plastic waste. 

3.) consult tiny house owners on equipping the Tiny House in the most efficient way.

our customers

It has proven to be a challenge to get housing directly to those in need since most people in Ghana work in the informal sector. Therefore we focus on mediators with capacities to subsidize or guarantee payment . That is why our customers are mainly :

 

NGOs

governmental instituitions 

corporate instituitions

private institutions

The WAY

phase 1

In the first phase of our enterprise, we design the architecture of our first two standard models as part of university cooperation. Subsequently, a model will be built as a model house. The construction and furnishing of the model house serve the preparation of a detailed cost plan and the acquisition of future suppliers. Parallel to this, we carry out investigations into the current waste situation in Ghana

phase 2

The second phase will see the construction of a pilot neighborhood in Ghana. We seek to make construction happen in cooperation with a governmental or private instituition. Here we understand  our partner as our first customer . The customer may act as a trader and sell the houses to future residents after purchase. The necessary building blocks will be imported for that period of  time. Recruitment and training of future construction workers will take place in advance. 

The pilot neighborhood as a whole is meant  as a market introduction measure to attract the attention of future customers and to gain more details on the needed capacity of the future factory. 

phase 3

In the third phase, the construction of the factory takes place. At the same time

the recruiting and training of further employees will take place.
