Firms in technical partnership deal
Building and civil engineering firm, Construction Kaiser Limited (CKL) has officially aligns its operations with PERI, a globally recognised construction firm through the signing of a technical partnership agreement. This affiliation is of great importance because of the ingenuity of the technical innovations that CKL will leverage on for its operations.
The partnership between CKL and PERI seeks to bridge the gap by deploying cutting edge technology and skill in the use of PERI’s world renowned Formwork and continuous training.
It also seeks to drastically reduce occurrences of building collapse during formwork failure in projects ensuring that quality standards are maintained and would enable CKL deploy PERI products optimally.
PERI, founded in 1969, is the world’s largest manufacturer of formwork and scaffolding. They presently have more than 70 subsidiaries and over 120 logistics centers currently operational. The company employs over 8,100 employees worldwide and definitely has blazed the trail for formwork and scaffolding innovation in Nigeria.
PERI will also be providing free training, as Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF) collaborates with Construction Kaiser Limited to train over 500 artisans, in the use of Form Work at the Lagos State Employability Support Project.
The partnership would further empower Lagosians by creating employment for its youths and ultimately reducing crime and poverty. The public would also be rest assured that works are being executed in a safe manner, thereby eliminating incidences attributed to formwork and scaffolding.
Over 50 per cent of fatalities on construction sites are as a result of weak scaffolding, wrong formwork placement and poor training in the use of formwork. This, the alignment would also address.
Starting as a small five-man organization carrying out minor renovation works, the CKL has grown to become a national force in the Nigerian construction industry.
