Adidome Ceramic Factory

Well worth a visit, while in Ghana, is the revived brick, roof tile and ceramics factory in Adidome, located 20km from Sogakope in the Volta Region of Ghana. In this small village it is the only industrial small-scale enterprise but it is now employing over 30 previously unemployed people to manuafcture clay bricks, traditional hand-formed bamboo roof tiles, interlocking Marseilles Roof Tiles, clay pavers, thin-brick slices and hollow blocks. The new expansion programme for 2010 is for rapid expansion of the ceramic pottery unit now that production of terracotta pottery has now commenced and a new pottery kiln has been built. During 2010 glazed pottery will be produced as soon as the large electric shuttle kiln, which is already on-site, has been installed. It is facinating to watch the highly trained artisans produce the hand-formed tradional bamboo roofing tiles from pressed slabs of the local Adidome clays.

    Hello,
    I just heard about bricks from adidome. I am planning to build a two-storey 2-bedroom apartment in Accra. May I pls ask:

    1. How many bricks would be required to build, say, a 12ft x 12ft single room?
    2. what is the total cost (less transportation)?
    3. How economical is it as compared with blocks?

    Urgent treatment of this inquiry is very much desired to enable me decide on options available to me.

    thank you.
