Building collapse: Bricklayers, block makers trained
Worried by incessant cases of building collapse in the country, LAFARGE Cement Nigeria plc has organised a training on block making and concrete mixing for bricklayers, block makers in the building industry to curb the ugly trends.
The training, which was held at Olugbon Hall, Oyo yesterday, laid much emphasis on “the requirement of quality blocks in building construction”.
The regional Manager of the company, Mr Soji Odus, said the major objective of the company is to ensure that the buyers and users of cement get value for their money.
“We are not here to teach you how to mould blocks but to give you training on how to mould quality blocks for building houses. The workshop will change the way and method adoptable in concrete mixing and block moulding by players in the building industry.” Odus stated
Delivering his lecture, the relationship manager, precast and block making segment of the company, Mr Adesoji Okesina attributed incidence of building collapse in Nigeria to the use of low-quality building materials and unprofessional mixing of cement with sand, gravel, granite and other building materials.
Also, the National President of Nigeria Block Makers Association, Alhaji Raji Adebowale commended the recent step taken by the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to ensure quality block making in the country.
