Lagos Engages Public On Building Code Domestication

The Lagos State Government is engaging the public to domesticate the National Building Code.

At a  forum,  the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako, stated that the move was aimed at producing the Lagos State Building Code and supplying the links in the regulatory framework by providing standards for buildings in the state as opposed to design standards.

He said: “As a performance-based building code, the Lagos State Building Code covers aspects such as structural stability, durability, protection from fire, access, moisture control, energy control and services and facilities.”

He said the code would complement the building 4x system in the state to address the challenges of land use, physical development and urban planning.

Salako added that the code would provide the opportunity to address the peculiarities of the state. It would also address the localities with standard while minimising costs of disasters from flooding, building collapse and fire outbreaks, among others.
