After three years of construction works, one of Nigeria’s building and civil engineering firms, ITB Nigeria Limited is set to complete its first steel and concrete building project, Azuri Peninsula, in Eko Atlantic City, Lagos.The Azuri Peninsula project, which began in early 2015, is a unique steel and concrete residential building project that consists of three sets of over 30 storey towers. It offers a unique collection of four-bedroom luxury and super luxury apartments, two and four-bedroom stunning Marina Town houses as well as six-bedroom simplex (penthouses).Steel and concrete structures involve a mix of steel and concrete together to form a single element. The tensile capacity of the steel and compressive capacity of the concrete results in a standard structure. This gives rise to benefits like speed, performance and value. Additionally, concrete encasement protects the steel from buckling, corrosion and fire.
The Managing Director, ITB Nigeria, Mr. Ramzi Chidiac, said, “We are excited about this project because it’s our first composite structure created by a combination of steel and concrete to form a single element. This helps to deliver performance that is more effective than when individual components are used together but not unified. This testifies to the excellent work that we do at ITB Nigeria.
“We are focused on fully understanding the needs of our clients and delivering on our promises, regardless of the scale or complexity of the challenge at hand”.On his part, QA/QC Coordinator, ITB Nigeria, Emmanuel Adeyemi, an engineer stated, ‘the uniqueness of composite structures is that it enhances speed of construction, performance and value. ”.
