Temiloluwa O’Peters

The Federal Government through the Ministry of Works and Housing has chosen a contractor for the renovation project of Architects’ Registration Council of Nigeria’s Lagos office.

A statement issued by the council on Thursday said the contractor, Premium Heights Integrated Solutions, was to coordinate other real estate professionals in delivering a modern, digitalised and improved office complex.

The council noted that the project, running into several millions, was coming on the heels of numerous efforts by the current leadership of ARCON to take architecture to greater heights.

In readiness for the take-off of the project that would cover both internal and external works, ARCON said it handed over the site to the contractor recently.

At the handing over ceremony, ARCON president, Oladipupo Ajayi, thanked the ministry and extolled the dedication of the council and members of staff of the secretariat.

He said the project, upon completion, would bequeath a new and modern working environment to Nigerian architects.

He also promised to give needed support to the contractor expected to deliver the project within three months.

Ajayi said, “The council was dubbed a council of change because we wanted to move architecture into the digitalised world.

“We have successfully put in place a portal through which all our programmes will be run.”

Representing the contractor’s team, Morounranti Alebiosu, promised to work with ARCON’s specification and deliver the project before the end of the year.
