A sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of an ultra-modern 500-room hostel complex for the Students? Representative Council (SRC) of the Cape Coast Polytechnic (C-POLY) was on Thursday performed at the construction site on campus.

The estimated cost of the six-storey building, which will accommodate about 1,500 students and have facilities like a banking hall, restaurant, supermarket and a conference hall, is 24 million Ghana cedis and will be carried out in phases.

The first phase is expected to be completed within nine months and will comprise the ground and the first floors and is estimated at five million Ghana cedis .

The Chairperson of the C-Poly Council, Mrs. Emelia Ennin, assisted by the President of the C-Poly SRC, Mr. Benjamin Boateng, jointly performed the ceremony and appealed to the contractor to ensure that the project was completed on schedule.

Mr. Boateng said the SRC was undertaking the project because of the difficulties students go through in securing accommodation which had become an annual ritual and was of the hope that the facility would benefit to the student body. GNA
