The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has organised a one-day sensitisation workshop for professionals and stakeholders in Gombe State on the challenges of building collapse
. The workshop brought together architects, builders, surveyors and other professionals from the building industry to brainstorm and ensure compliance to save lives and property.
In his welcome address, the Director General of SON, Mr. Osita Aboloma, said the organisation was worried by the threat posed by building collapse as a result of quackery and non-compliance to rules in the building sub-sector.
Represented by the SON Coordinator in the state, Alhaji Umar Yakubu, Aboloma said the objective of the workshop was to sensitise stakeholders in the building environment on their responsibilities and obligations with a view to have a safe building environment.
