A HOUSING shortage in Africa could translate into a jobs boost in Limavady, according to local modular housing firm FastHouse. The Limavady based building firm has exported its innovative new housebuilding solution to Ghana as it moves to secure mass housing and infrastructure related projects across Australasia, Africa and the Middle East.
A spokesperson for the Roe Valley housing manufacturer told the Northern Constitution that "should the scheme move in a positive direction then potentially, increased production should translate into more jobs."
FastHouse has initiated a joint venture with Tradezone International Ghana Ltd to utilise its innovative off-site construction technology to manufacture housing from its Limavady facility which is transported to Ghana for assembly.
Ghana has sought international assistance in delivery and finance as the Government works to address a significant housing shortage with a shortfall of 1.7 million units expected to rise to two million before the end of 2018.
