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