Competitive Advantage

Developers are cooperating with our proposed pre-cast production factory, which will also provide services to other developers as contractors.

Our proposed building system is faster than the conventional construction system which other developers are using. The expertise of our proposed foreign partners and experience in other countries has added an advantage to us over our competitors.

Rationale for the deal

The demand for affordable housing in Nigeria is far above the supply. Lagos state alone has a shortfall of 8,000,000 housing units and is currently calling on private sector investors to partner with the State on PPP. Investors also have opportunity of providing housing for the masses privately and sell to the public without the involvement of the state government.

The basic philosophy of the proposed scheme is to provide affordable and quality housing accommodation for those who can afford it. The target groups have been clearly identified to be Low and Medium Income Class . The proposed developments will be sited at chosen sites located at, Ikorodu, Ibeju Lekki, and Iba/Badagry Express Way Areas of Lagos State, The locations have good access Roads linking to the major Express Road.

A total of 5,000 housing units are expected to be constructed, with different housing types for effective choice.

Use of financing

Initially, a fund of €250,000 is needed for a feasibility study to be carried by our German-Austria Technical Partners for the establishment of a pre-cast affordable housing Factory on Large scale in Nigeria.

The rest of the funding is needed for other pre-development expenses and balance to serve as company's initial equity contribution to raise additional funding for the initial 5,000 housing units:
• 2 Bedroom Flats (1,200 units)
• 2 Bedroom Bungalows (800 units)
• 3 Bedroom Flats (1,200 units)
• 3 Bedroom Bungalows (800 units)
• 4 Bedroom Terrace Houses (1,000 units)
