Project Details

PROJECT ONGOING In February 2020, our team (including partners Arup, urbanSEED, and Ramdihal and Haynes) won a contract with the Inter-American Development Bank to develop a National Housing Strategy for the Republic of Guyana. With the discovery of massive offshore oil deposits, this small country is on the verge of an economic boom, and unless there is an effective housing strategy in place soon, affordable housing could be crowded out – an occurrence that is all too frequent in emerging countries that suddenly have the prospect of national wealth. Our objective is to identify a plan, funding sources, and Guyanese entities both public and private that can assure the country’s anticipated explosive growth is channeled to provide affordable housing for the Guyanese people.
