We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as consultants on a sizeable project based in Nigeria, which is funded by the World Health Organisation.
Costing approximately £150 million, the project will see the development of a syringe manufacturing facility, as part of the River State Government’s drive to significantly reduce the spread of HIV, Aids and other infectious diseases. Integrated Medical Industries (IMI) is a registered company, which is solely owned by the River State Government and will specialise in the high tech volume production of syringes and intravenous drug bags for the facility.
Working with a practice of Manchester based Architects and also a UK steel fabricator, we have been contracted as Lead Structural Engineers and are responsible for designing foundations, floor slabs and pits for 6 new buildings.
Employing 2,500 people, the new facility will include syringe and water processing plants as well as an energy centre, a medical store, staff quarters and carton factory. The project began in January 2013 and is expected to be in full operation in early 2015.
We wish the scheme every success in reducing the spread of infectious diseases in Africa and are very proud to be associated with such a prestigious project.
