Julius Berger are the contractors and Scope Butler Building manufactured the steel frame components. The facility will not only be Nigeria's first LEED certified project of this kind, it will also be Procter & Gamble's first LEED certified project in the African continent.. This project is being built by P&G to effectively localize production within the Lagos State market.
Phase II of the project will see an additional 22,000 sqm facility, which will serve as an on-site distribution center. Nigeria is gradually witnessing increased investment in manufacturing, assemblage and harnessing of industrial products and the Procter & Gamble Babycare facility is just one of many more that are in the pipeline.
