In its effort to stem the tide of building collapse in Nigeria, one of the foremost housing component solutions providers in Nigeria, Messrs Nigerite Limited, has come up with a new dry building technology, designed to meet the modern day building construction.
Speaking during the just concluded Abuja Housing Show, Head of Business Development, Nigerite Limited, Mr Danladi Mwantok, affirmed that the dry building technology was a move away from the wet construction.
Mwantok noted that the dry building technology uses steel and other locally pre-engineered manufactured materials that could stand the test of time, assuring that most buildings constructed with Nigerite materials were immune against building collapse.
He stressed that the company was show-casing its dry building technology as one of its innovative ways of introducing the new building technology into the Nigerian market.
According to him, the dry building technology would take builders away from the wet process into a dry process which was lighter, safer and cost effective, adding that the wet process ends at the foundation level, while at the DCP level, the dry construction takes over with steel frames coupled with perfect cladding to the finishing.
“The technology guarantees stability of the houses, as it is a pre-engineered system. All the forces that come on a building have been considered in the design as it is a very stable building construction innovation,” Mwantok said.
“Almost all our products are locally made, we recognize that and we fall in line with the direction of government in encouraging local content like our workforce and the materials that we use,” Mwantok said.
