143-unit Kuramo Beach Residence set for completion
Firm urges builders to prioritise construction safety
Renewed efforts in increasing the nation’s housing stock have continued to yield dividend, with the plan to complete a residential project known as Kuramo Beach Residence in Lagos.
The twin tower building, sitting on a total land area of 40,000sqm, located at Adetokunbo Ademola Street, Victoria Island, is being handled by ITB Nigeria Limited.
The firm was awarded the project in March 2016 with completion period of 36 months.
Also known as Total Residence Development, the property includes approximately 143 residential apartments, a clubhouse, two podium-parking levels as well as recreational sport facilities.
The contemporary Kuramo Beach residence promises a state of the art amenities that cater for millennials and individuals with a taste for luxury.
The building is constructed from carefully chosen materials and with strict adherence to quality and safety standards.
According to ITB, the Kuramo Beach project will help to bridge the gap in the housing ecosystem by providing more residential options for citizens and thus reducing the housing deficit in Lagos.
The company’s project manage, Mr Abbas Haidar said: “We have committed a lot of time, resources, expertise, digitalized equipment and utmost competence to ensure the successful completion of this project and we cannot wait to unveil this masterpiece.
Meanwhile, builders say, many professionals and artisans in the building environment have neglected, abandoned and violated safety rules and regulations.
This statement was made by the Chairman of the Nigerian Institute of Building (NIOB), Mr. Adelaja Adekanmbi during their 27th Builders’ Conference and Annual General Meeting recently.
At this conference, Mr. Adekanmbi strongly opined that the major cause of building collapse in Nigeria was the negligence and reckless omissions by professionals, artisans and all those concerned in the construction project.
Commenting on the issue, the project manager, Mr Abbas Haidar said: “ITB Nigeria, in line with international standards has put in place all measures to handle incidents and non-conformities both in offices and on project sites. We have just recently begun the process to be the first Nigerian Company to obtain the latest ISO 45001:2018 – Occupational Health and Safety Management System.”
