SHADRACH DODZI NYAMADI (TRUSTEE):
CIVIL ENGINEER & EX HM FORCES
PROFILE: Nyamadi is a Civil engineer with experience in project management, site engineering, construction and the supply chain. He is currently, working with Skanska UK Ltd on a partnership contract with Oxfordshire County Council on project schemes
such as new bridge designs and major carriageway redevelopments.
Nyamadi’s desire in humanitarian works stems from the awareness that our ‘motherland’ Ghana is neither implementing nor incorporating requirements of the Adopted British Standards into majority of the nation’s infrastructure development projects to facilitate mobility of the disabled or disadvantage persons in society.
This, Nyamadi insist is preventing people less privileged or with disability easy access to key areas of life such as education, training, employment, transport services and health institutions. Nyamadi believes most of Ghana’s infrastructures such as lifts and footbridges
have not been designed for disability access and do not have accessible ramps at appropriate gradients or slopes for wheel chair users.
As a professional Nyamadi believes that ‘WE’ can help encourage our government and other institutions to implement relevant design standards and codes of practices to our infrastructure designs that would support and cater for all people with disability in our community as well as promoting the welfare of others.
