In contrast, we have pursued a consistent low-tech approach in Ghana. As part of a planning consortium together with ILF Consulting Engineers and ACP airport consulting partners, we designed a master plan and a terminal for a new regional airport in Tamale. The terminal building consists of a resource-friendly wooden construction. Local wood and other regional construction materials will be preferred. Ramps have been planned instead of escalators wherever possible; natural ventilation has been used instead of mechanical ventilation systems.
