LAGOS | Central Bank Of Nigeria | 100m | 19 fl | U/C

Central Bank Of Nigeria, Lagos

Quote:
To fit into the new environment, the Central Bank of Nigeria has decided to rebuild its 50 year-old relic, just as the owners of the Nigerian Stock Exchange building are planning to redecorate.

The CBN governor has promised to spend about N32 billion to do the trick and, to make it better the job has been put in the hands of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc.

Julius Berger has been briefed to remodel the 50-year-old Lagos Office to give it a modern look like its peers around the world just like its headquarters in Abuja. The building is designed as 19 storey L-shaped structure.

It is a very functional design with major consideration for user-friendliness. On account of this, six of the 19 floors would be used as car parks and 13 as office space.

In its day, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) building at the heart of Lagos Central Business District was the edifice to behold and copy, because of its elegant design.

The contract for the building of a befitting Central Bank of Nigeria, Lagos Office to compliment the Lagos State Government Central Business District (CBD), had been awarded to Messrs Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, who also constructed the CBN Head Office Building in Abuja .

The re-design is to be built on the land of some acquired old buildings in the business district. We gathered that the construction company has up to 37 months to deliver the Lagos CBN hi-tech building of 19 floors

The new administration building of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in Lagos is rising steadily to eventually reach the planned 100 m height with the help of a customized formwork and scaffolding solution.



The limited space has reduced crane availability; therefore the central reinforced concrete core is climbed hydraulically with the PERI RCS rail climbing system.



Combining two PERI climbing systems – RCS self*climbing formwork for the main core and crane*climbed CB 240 for the three stairwell satellite cores – perfectly matches the on*site requirements.



Mobile self*climbing devices and hydraulic aggregates of the RCS modular construction system reduce the costs incurred for crane*independent climbing



Following on from the construction work for the building´s shell, the PERI UP facade scaffolding provides 1.00 m wide working platforms which ensure the stonework for the facade can be installed quickly and safely.



With short 25 cm ledgers, the facade scaffolding can be optimally adapted to suit the geometry of the building with the help of the modular PERI UP Rosett Flex Modular scaffold system. The decking surfaces are completely covered and the compensation bays are also guaranteed to have no tripping hazards; cladding with protective netting complements the high level of safety.

Administration Building Central Bank of Nigeria, Lagos, Nigeria

Climbing without crane and flexible scaffolding procedure with system


Quote:
A new, prestigious administrative building is currently being realised for the Nigerian Central Bank in the financial district of Lagos. For the construction of the 100-metre tall high-rise structure, the formwork units are hydraulically climbed with the help of PERI RCS self-climbing technology then, for reasons of space, only three cranes are available. Following on from the rapid pace of work, the building shell facade is scaffolded with PERI UP. Formwork and scaffolding from a single source, professional training for the construction site team by PERI as well as excellent cooperation between all construction management members provides a solid basis for safe and fast construction progress.

With over 150 million inhabitants, Nigeria is the most populous country on the African continent and ranks among those countries with the richest deposits of oil and gas. Lagos is the largest city in country and is situated on the Atlantic coast; with its 14 million inhabitants, it is one of the mega-cities in Africa and the world alongside Cairo and Kinshasa, and is currently experiencing continued rapid growth in all areas. Furthermore, Lagos aims to become the new financial centre in Africa.

High requirements despite limited space availability
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the most important financial institution in the country, is currently having a new, 100 m tall administration building constructed on Lagos Island in the heart of the financial district. The 21*storey structure will provide the very latest workplaces for around 2,000 bank employees. Above this are three circular-shaped executive floors complete with a helicopter landing pad on the roof. A facade consisting of aluminium, glass and natural stone gives the complex an individual and distinctive face. The complicated foundations and – due to the very close proximity to the neighbouring buildings – the extremely cramped site conditions placed tremendous demands on building contractor Julius Berger Nigeria. These challenges were already taken into account during the planning phase which led the Wiesbaden*based formwork engineers of Bilfinger Berger Nigeria GmbH to decide in favour of the PERI self*climbing technology and scaffolding solution. Together with the PERI planning team from Frankfurt and Weissenhorn, a concept was developed that took into consideration all individual project requirements.

Hydraulic climbing without a crane
On the tightly-spaced construction site, only three cranes are available for the shell and finishing work. Therefore, the formwork engineers combined the VARIO GT 24 girder wall formwork with the RCS climbing system to create project*specific climbing formwork units for realizing the centrally*positioned main core. These are rail-guided and can be moved with the use of a crane by means of mobile RCS self-climbing aggregates. On-site requirement of only a few self*climbing devices and hydraulic aggregates reduces the costs incurred here for crane-independent climbing.

The RCS climbing formwork, complete with working platform as well as two finishing and one concreting platform, have been designed for a standard storey height of 4.20 m. The PERI concept takes into account in particular the changing ground plans with tapered wall thickness from 55 cm to 30 cm along with bracket cantilevers in connection with the wall returns. For ensuring efficient construction of the narrow shaft dimensions with clear widths, in part, of only 2.50 m, the VARIO elements climb all four walls on only one RCS platform up to the next floor. Furthermore, the PERI specialists dimensioned the climbing formwork units so that they can be used almost unchanged over the complete height of the building in spite of the geometrical changes in the structure and without any additional assembly costs. Three additional stairwell cores positioned at the corners of the building are climbed on the basis of the CB climbing scaffold system with crane support. Core and stairwell formwork are climbed three to four cycles in advance.

Scaffold planning and static from one source
For the safe execution of the stonework on the building facade, the facade scaffolding is mounted parallel to the structural work. The PERI UP Rosett Flex modular scaffold has been optimally adapted here to perfectly suit to the complex geometry of the building. The scaffolding planning was created with the help of PERI CAD software and took into account the varying ground plans featuring numerous projections and recesses as well as the three crane towers with corresponding fixing struts. Planning work and verification for the scaffolding static took place here hand-in-hand. As a result, planning reliability and optimum material utilization could be achieved especially for those scaffold sections reaching up to 100 m in height.

2.50 m long scaffolding bays with 1.00 m working widths serve as the standard bay lengths. Required length, width and height adjustments are carried out in 25 or 50 cm increments. As the steel decks also have a width of 25 cm, an extremely flexible system scaffold is available – with adaptation possibilities which are usually only found in tube and coupler scaffolding. In addition, working safety levels are increased because the integrated lock against lifting ensures that the decking remains securely in place immediately after being installed and the platforms are completely covered without any dangerous gaps.

The flexibility of the modular scaffold system simplifies geometrical adjustments: unforeseen specific local circumstances can comfortably be dealt with at any time with PERI UP Rosett Flex due to the metric grid dimensions – in the system itself and therefore without any negative safety*related effects. Furthermore, PERI UP is used on the site extremely versatile as reinforcement scaffolding and stair tower.

Lagos continues to grow
With its many universities, colleges, theatres, museums as well as architectural monuments, Lagos already presents itself as the economic and cultural centre of the country. In addition, an increasing number of banks from Africa, Europe and the U.S. along with the Nigerian Stock Exchange want to set up operations on the main island in future - but there is no more free space available to expand. As a result, through the "Eko Atlantic" mega-project, a new district for a quarter of a million people and 150,000 jobs is being created on an artificial, 9 km² island off the coast of Lagos. The first phase of the project has been completed and 2.5 million square metres of land has already been reclaimed from the sea.

Am always surprised that very little is said about the Architects of Buildings in Nigeria. The Architects are the creator of the buildings, the brains behind the whole enterprise of realising the edifice being discussed. Its ridiculous when buildings are being discussed in the US, Europe, The Far East etc. they mention the Architects when we discuss them in Nigeria prominence is given to the Builder. I usual describe the situation thus Architect = Brain, Builders = Brawn. So why elevate Brawn over brain. Lets celebrate our Local talent our heroes the Naija Architects please.
