Clubhouse Ghana Limited, owner of the Standard Chartered Bank Head of Office Building, has held activities to mark five years of the provision of top-notch facilities and services for its blue-chip tenants.
Situated on a land area of 12,924m² at Independence Avenue in North Ridge and overlooking the Ako Adjei Interchange, the EDGE-certified edifice is home not only to the headquarters of Standard Charted Bank, Ghana but also to companies like Google Ghana Limited and Newmont Ghana.
Managed by Broll Ghana Limited, the Standard Chartered Bank Head Office building was completed on June 11, 2018. It was commissioned by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo on October 3, 2018, and on December 22, 2022, was awarded EDGE certification (an IFC-initiated green building certification system which focuses on making buildings more resource-efficient and seeks to address the negative impact of buildings on the environment).
The day-to-day management of the building is done by Broll’s Centre Management Team (CMT), comprising the Operations Manager, the Centre Manager, the Finance Manager, the Portfolio Executive Manager, the Facilities Portfolio Executive and a Front Office Manager.
Over the past couple of years, the Stanchart Head Office Building has earned the reputation of being the smartest public building in the heart of Accra, thanks primarily to the efficient property management culture of the Centre Management Team.
The building prides itself on amenities such as its dependable power and water supply systems, the smart escalators and fire detection system, the high-security detail, spacious parking spaces, its Building Management System (BMS) and Visitors Management System (VMS).
The celebration last Friday of the 5th anniversary of the state-of-the-art edifice featured two main activities – the execution of a CSR project at the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge Hospital) and a health screening exercise conducted by First Point Medical Consult for tenants and other users of the building, followed by a reception and souvenir distribution.
Pursuing a policy of giving back to society, Clubhouse Ghana Limited, as part of its corporate social responsibility, donated a variety of essential medical items to the Department of Child Health of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.
The items, worth thousands of cedis included a 40-litre oxygen cylinder, gun and digital thermometers, nebulizing chambers, drip stands, wheelchairs, dissecting forceps, kidney dishes, gallipots, bedsheets, pillows, an infanometer, and a stadiometer, among many other items.
Speaking at a brief presentation ceremony, George Adjei-Ampofo, West Africa Regional Director of Lambo Real Estates Group, the parent company of Clubhouse Ghana Limited, stressed the importance of providing the Child Department with the items to facilitate its operations.
Mr. Adjei-Ampofo said the donation was part of the CSR programme as Clubhouse looks to give back to society, especially to the children, who are the future leaders of the country.
Dr. Charlyne Kilba, Head of Paediatrics and Department of Child Health, who received the items on the hospital’s behalf, expressed gratitude to Clubhouse for the provision of the essential medical items.
Dr. Kilba said the department had run out of supplies of certain items and equipment over the past few weeks, adding that the items donated would bring immense relief and help the department to deliver its best services for the young patients.
A major feature of the celebration was a health screening exercise conducted by First Point Medical Consult for tenants and other users of the building. The exercise involved checks on blood pressure, pulse rate, oxygen saturation and body temperature; eye screening, breast examination, body mass index assessment and clinical consultation among other things.
A reception was held at which outstanding workers of Clubhouse were honoured and an anniversary cake was cut. The reception attracted a host of personalities and institutional heads among whom were Anthony Sekyere, CEO of Broll Ghana Limited and management team members from Stanbic Heights, Achimota Mall, Junction Mall, AFC, Newmont Ghana and Google Ghana.
David Kudzordzi, Operations Manager of Clubhouse, added that the StanChart building is a grade ‘A’ facility with functional systems which make it a conducive and friendly work environment. He said the state-of-the-art systems make the building very unique from other facilities, disclosing that it was still open to welcome other blue-chip tenants.
“Here at Clubhouse, the culture of effective and efficient maintenance remains one of its core values, and that has made its tenants very happy with its services. Within these five years, we have provided some amazing services to our clients, creating a conducive atmosphere for work to take place,” Mr. Kudzordzi said.
The celebrations were held under the theme: ‘Five Years of Progressive Management’.
