They are the highlights of our commitment to client satisfaction, teamwork among staff, collaboration with partners, professionalism in keeping to timelines, and creativity &character in tackling challenges. Some of our focus projects in 2018 include:

We successfully completed engineering, procurement and construction works; which includes 5km internal roads, electrical works; installations of electricity transmission systems and water construction; drainage and wastewater system.

We partnered with architects in South Africa to achieve the trademark Krispy Kreme Design. The result is a contemporary structure with lively interiors and soft wooden-finish flooring.
Number One Building: In the second quarter of the year, rehabilitation work commenced on the Number One building formerly known as IMB Plaza. We partnered with Chapman Taylor to recreate a new façade design and interior design. Before 2018, Our team completed the reinforcement, formwork and post-tensioning on the 6th floor as part of our efforts in making sure the project is completed by the second half of 2019.
Access Bank, Apapa: Building an ultra-modern bank was definitely going to involve commercial building expertise, and we brought that to this project. Our work involved the full design and construction of a banking hall, featuring space tight interlock floors on the exteriors and wooden tile flooring on the inside. The building is divided into multiple sections for different use including a cafeteria, waiting area, counter and functional offices.
