    Lagos govt to domesticate National Building Code, adopt environment friendly construction

    The Lagos State government on Wednesday said it would domesticate the National Building Code and adopt environment friendly construction methods.

    The Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr Idris Salako, said this at a media sensitisation in Ikeja, organised by his ministry in collaboration with the Nigerian Energy Support Programme (NESP).

    The event focused on the domestication of the National Building Code in Lagos State and integration of the Building Energy Efficiency Code (BEEC).

    Salako said inspite of existing laws to regulate physical development, the state still had challenges of land use, physical development and urban planning, as well as safety and health issues.

    He said developers and some property owners were cashing in on huge housing demands to cut corners resulting in haphazard developments, building collapse and loss of investments.

    Salako who said the ministry was going on full automation noted that the Lagos Building Code was intended to supply the missing link to further enhance sanity in the construction sector.

    “The Lagos Building Code, which will be the logical consequence of the domestication of the National Codes, is intended to supply the missing link in the existing regulatory framework.

    “It will provide the much needed focus on performance standards for building in the state as opposed to design standards.

    “As a performance-based building code, the Lagos Building Code covers aspects such as structural stability, durability, protection from fire, access,  moisture control, energy control and services and facilities.

    “The Building Code when operational will afford us the opportunity to address the peculiarities of the state and its different localities with building performance standards.

    “It will also minimise costs of untold disasters from flooding, collapse and fire outbreaks,” he said.

    The commissioner called for media support in awareness creation to ensure smooth take-off and actualisation of the Lagos Building Code.

    He thanked the Nigerian Energy Support Programme ( NESP) for offering to midwife the process.

    Salako also assured that all built environment professionals would be carried along to have their inputs, adding that, the entire process would take six months to complete before the launch.

    Mrs Aramide Adeyoye, Special Adviser to the governor on Works and Infrastructure, said in the past the state relied on both British and American codes for checking construction standards.

    Adeyoye, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mrs Abiola Kosegbe, said the Lagos State Building Code was timely and would address issues of quality and safety.

    She said the briefing was to sensitise Lagos residents on efforts of the state government to activate the Lagos building code.

    Lagos acquires 2 speed trains for Red Line project

    The Lagos state government has purchased two 10-car, 330 km/h Talgo speed trains for its Red Line railway project.

    Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu completed the procurement agreement for the trains on Tuesday at an event inside the Milwaukee facility of Spanish train manufacturer Talgo Incorporated in the US.

    Trains will head to Lagos for the state's Red Line, a 37km rail project.

    Once completed, the Red Line will have 11 stations and will transfer passengers from Agbado to Oyingbo.

    Sanwo-Olu said the state government was excited to complete the purchase of the two new trains.

    He said the acquisition was in line with his administration's commitment to efficient traffic management and transportation system.

    The governor was accompanied on the trip by the Transportation Commissioner, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde; the Governor's Works Advisor, Ms. Aramide Adeyoye; and the Managing Director, Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority, Ms. Abimbola Akinajo.

    He said that government officials inspected the trains, looked at the configuration and were satisfied that the trains would fit on the Red Line tracks.

    ”A train is not something that you can just go to the platform and pick up. We are very lucky to have new trains.

    ”We have seen our beautiful white and red trains. Coincidentally, the train line is called Red Line and you can see that they have given us the color.

    "We're just going to mark it and put our stamp on it," he said.

    He hoped that the purchase of the trains would be the start of a mutually beneficial business relationship between Lagos State and the train manufacturer.

    “Providing a source of livelihood for our citizens is about providing jobs for our people and that is what we are doing.

    ”This is about ensuring that we can build our economy; people can move from one place to another and businesses can grow,” said Sanwo-Olu.

    He said that part of what the government had achieved in the past two and a half years was an integrated urban mass transit system, in which road, river and rail infrastructure would be used to move more than 20 million residents in and around of the state.

    Milwaukee Mayor Pro Tem Cavalier Johnson, who welcomed Sanwo-Olu to town, said it was bittersweet to have missed the opportunity to have trains operating in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.

    Johnson congratulated Sanwo-Olu on the acquisition of the trains and hoped it would make moving in Lagos state easier.

    The CEO of Talgo, USA, Mr. Antonio Pérez, said that it was important that the trains be used.

    "It's no use for the trains we build to be stored and maintained without passengers riding on them," Pérez said.

    The Lagos state delegation inspected the interior design of the newly acquired 330 km/h Talgo intra-urban metropolitan trains.

    Since the beginning of his administration on May 29, 2019, Sanwo-Olu has upheld his administration's commitment to making the Red Line dream a reality.

    The governor promised Lagos state residents that the Red Line would start in the quarter of 2022 or the first quarter of 2023, with a capacity of 500,000 passengers per day.

    Building collapse: Don’t give your food to dogs – LASG tell engineers

    The Special Adviser to Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Works and Infrastructure, Mrs Aramide Adeyoye, on Saturday called on engineers to flush out quacks in the construction industry.

    Adeyoye said that quacks caused building collapse.

    She was the guest of honour at the maiden Hamed Lawal Distinguished Public Lecture organised Chapter of the Nigerian Institution of Civil Engineers (NICE) in Ogba, Lagos State.

    The lecture was entitled “National Local Content Policies in the Construction Industry – Strategies for Optimal Deployment for Engineering Professionals”.

    Adeyoye said that the collapse of a 21-storey in Ikoyi, Lagos, recently, called for soul-searching on the part of professionals, who had left a vacuum for quackry to thrive in the construction sector.

    She advised engineers to take up roles to become licenced construction inspectors.

    Adeyoye, a Fellow of NICE and the Nigerian Society of Engineers, shared experiences on how she unbundled the ministry for efficiency.

    She gave insights on how local engineers could  benefit from the National Local Content Policies.

    “The building collapse (Ikoyi) portends a very good opportunity for us to go back again to the basics. Where did we go wrong?” she asked.

    She called for decisive actions and implementation of recommendations from the lecture and previous seminars to correct anomalies in the construction sector.

    “The elders in the profession must sit down, even the builders. It is time for the building professionals to know what the local content policy says.

    “It starts with, do we even have a building code? If we do not have a building code, what are the timelines that we give ourselves to get these passed?

    “The moment we say that one, who are the professionals for different levels of developments? Who and who can practise?

     

    “We must never give our food to dogs.If we have done that, it is never too late to take it from them and then decide that we will do things professionally,” Adeyoye said.

    The guest speaker, Mr Robbie Owivry, advised local engineers to upgrade their skills and grow capacities to qualify for opportunities created Content Policies.

    Owivry said that the Executive Order 5 signed in February 2018 Buhari created an enabling environment for local engineers and local suppliers to thrive in  bidding for projects in the construction industry.

    “The National Content Policies enhance economic growth, physical infrastructure development, avenues for improvement of education and talent of local workforce, and creation of a better community for all involved on one hand, and to serve as gateways for the Nigerian engineering professional to take prominence in the construction industry, on the other hand,” he said.

    Mr Tunde Olatunji who represented NICE National Chairman, Dr Jang Tanko, narrated  impacts made Lawal in engineering, saying that he deserved honour .

    “The honour is long overdue,”  he said.

    Responding, Lawal, the first NICE National Chairman and Fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers, shared experience and knowledge he gained abroad.

    He called for local and foreign expertise to coexist for sharing technology and skills for quality assurance in the construction sector.

    The Chairman of NICE, Lagos State Chapter, Mr Olawale Bolarinwa, in   his opening speech, had said that the theme of the lecture was chosen for experts to give directions in moving Nigeria to the next positive level.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Lawal was honoured for birthing NICE and growing it.
