LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — The collapse of a building complex under construction has killed 34 mainly foreign workers in Nigeria’s commercial capital of Lagos, officials said Thursday. National Emergency Management Agency’s spokesman Ibrahim Farinloye said 13 people were saved from the rubble in the rescue operation that started after the Tuesday pre-dawn collapse and ended Wednesday night. He said most victims were from Benin and Niger. Lagos state says it had ordered work to stop because the five-story structure was beyond the height approved by a building permit. It ordered directors of the Lekki Gardens property development to turn themselves into the police to be prosecuted. Buildings collapse often in Nigeria because corruption has builders cutting corners. In 2014, a building of televangelist T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations caved in and killed 116 people, dozens of them South African. A court last year ordered that the church and two structural engineers be prosecuted for criminal negligence. The church is challenging the order. Copyright 2016 The Associated Press.

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address? We are trying to help the poor peasant farmers in an area called Obiti in Ohaji-Egbema. These peasant have no awareness of medical treatment and they depend on locally made concoctions when they are sick while some enlightened travel about 2 miles to reach the “local” clinic – receiving a medical check. Many of the locals die prematurely due to inadequate medical care. The surrounding villages Umuapu and Awara do not have access to a clinic neither. What is your project and how will it help? Our project is building a clinic/hospital and it will help them to have access to medical care anytime especially in emergency cases when they cannot travel far in search of treatment. The presence of the clinic will create awareness for the need of routine check among them and prevent them from being ignorant of their health status so as to seek for medical attention when necessary. The clinic there will also prevent untimely deaths of the peasants and also create job opportunities and training of auxiliary nurses. How can other people partner with you on your project? Other people can partner with us by funding the project or by offerings gifts in-kind. Please detail the resources that you need. US$40,000 for building the clinic. Hospital equipments like beds, tables, forceps, scan machine. Equipments for hematology, chemistry analyzers, autoclave etc. are also needed.

Interestingly, an unintended but major positive fall-out of the construction of the Obajana-Kabba road, when completed, may be the exposure of the monumental fraud associated with road contracts in Nigeria. The 42.5 kilometre road is estimated to cost Dangote Group N11.5 billion, even though it was the sum of N5.24 billion with 30 percent tax concession that has now been approved by FEC based on the 2012 estimate, when the project was first conceived. Considering that there is hardly any state in Nigeria today where a kilometer of road is built for less than a billion Naira (the situation is even worse at the federal level), there will be questions about some of the figures being quoted for such contracts in our country by the time the Obajana-Kabba road is completed.
Building Technology Courses and Certification Programs Building technology courses can help students gain the skills needed to be successful in the construction field. Such coursework is usually done as part of a full certificate or degree program. View 10 Popular Schools » Show me popular schools Essential Information The study of building technology covers the planning for the creation of residential or commercial properties, as well as structures. Programs in this subject are normally offered at the certificate or associate degree level, but building technology coursework may also be found in advanced programs for construction or architecture. Graduates of such programs may work as contractors or as managers if they have sufficient construction experience; however, many construction management jobs require a bachelor’s degree with experience. Building technology programs incorporate hands-on experience through labs that may be done on campus or at a building site. Students in both certificate and associate’s degree programs learn the basics of construction drawing, blueprint reading, building codes and construction project management. They learn to construct walls, roofs, floors, and foundations, as well as other interior and exterior structures. An associate’s degree program usually goes more in depth and covers topics like field engineering, estimating, piping and electrical systems, and a capstone course may be included. Some building technology programs prepare students for industry certification exams. Some of these certifications are offered by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).
Here are some common concepts found in building technology courses: Site layout Roofing Wall framing EPA regulations of hazardous waste Construction math Basic safety Plumbing History of alternative energy sources List of Building Technology Courses Construction Drawing Construction drawing classes teach students the basics of formulating a blueprint, how to draw to scale, how to calculate for flooring, how to design beams and other key components of architecture. This also includes teaching technique for lines and letters on a chart. Many classes in construction drawing focus on computer-aided design (CAD) and educate students on how to use computer programs like AutoCAD and Autodesk. Construction drawing is usually among the introductory classes taken by building technology students, and passing is required to move on further in the program. This course may be offered in two parts, labeled by the school as Construction Drawing I and II, and they must be completed in a sequence. Building Codes The primary concern of building technology is safety. Buildings codes classes give students a background in understanding the many rules and regulations that must be adhered to in any form of construction. Students might especially focus on the local and state laws governing the construction of new buildings and structures. They also learn about blueprint and plan reading, plumbing, electrical wiring and field inspections. This class is usually required and offered in the first or second year of an academic program. Energy Efficiency A class in energy efficiency teaches students how to incorporate energy-saving theories into building design.
