CSquared - Office Ghana
LOCATION: ACCRA, GHANA
CSquared is a technology company, owned by Google, Convergence Partners, International Finance Corporation (“IFC”), and Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
CSquared is making commercially driven investments into broadband-enabling infrastructure throughout Africa. When it comes to Internet access, a basic connection is useful — but it is abundant, affordable broadband that can transform communities and help people make the most of opportunities online. By investing in internet infrastructure and making it available to local service providers, CSquared helps bring high-quality broadband access to Africa’s large cities. CSquared currently has over 800 km of fibre in Kampala and Entebbe, in Uganda; more than 840 km of fibre in the Ghanaian cities of Accra, Tema, and Kumasi and has just launched in Monrovia, Liberia. Collectively over 25 service providers now use these metro fibre networks to offer broadband services and 4G data to end users, with over 1,300 tower and commercial building sites connected directly to CSquared’s fibre infrastructure.
The concept for the office was produced by UK architectural firm Pringle Brandon Perkins + Will (PBPW). OOA partnered with them and took over the Design development and Construction stage as well as the supervision stage till practical completion in February 2017.
