Prez Mahama to commission Job 600 today
The complex has thirteen floors with two hundred and fifty two offices. The original 1965 structure now has two new additional blocks.
Job 600 was built by the Dr Kwame Nkrumah government for the 1965 Organisation of African Unity (OAU) conference. No maintenance schedule was planned for the complex after his overthrow.
In 2007, the John Agyekum Kufuor government secured a $24 million loan to rehabilitate the structure for it to be the used by the MPs but the project did not take off until the Prof John Evans Atta Mills assumed office. But by then its cost had increased to $63 million.
In 2011, the estimate for renovating the building was adjusted upwards by 39 million dollars.
