Export to Nigeria

British High Commission Nigeria

Bouygues Construction Nigeria Limited (BCNL) are working on a contract in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. The new building, with a floor space of 32,000 m², will be located in the Jabi Lake business district, a fast-growing development area.

It consists primarily of a 2-level shopping arcade with room for around 100 shops and 14 restaurants as well as a mezzanine cinema and around 750 parking spaces. The shopping mall is expected to be open by the end of 2015. With this project, with a value close on USD 79.5 million (around EUR 57.6 million), BCNL is establishing itself as a major player in the construction market in Nigeria, which has the largest population in Africa and is the No. 1 economic power on the continent.

The Challenge

BS Specialist Products Ltd were requested to provide both information and advice on finding the most suitable joint filler for a project that was thousands of miles away. 

The construction project contractors had specific requirements that included:

  • Needed to be easy to transport overseas.

  • Cost effective.

  • Installation needed to be straight forward to provide an instant and reliable joint filler solution.

  • Advice on the best joint filler system for a large scale construction project overseas.

The Solution

BS Specialist Products used their extensive market and product application knowledge to provide a proposal for the high performance joint filler - Expandafill which is a closed cell polyethylene foam joint filler.

This product is the perfect solution, polyethylene expansion joint filler for use in concrete, brickwork and blockwork joints. Being low density it is also used for forming isolation joints for machine bases and perimeter slab isolation joints.

The Outcome

BS Specialist Products prepared the Expandafill stock for Bouygues who arranged collection for 135 sheets of Expandafill and 550 cartridges of intumescent sealant ready to be shipped over to Nigeria. Supply was on time and within budget.

Added Value

The wealth of experience from the BSSP team along with unrivalled product knowledge enabled them to work quickly and efficiently on this high profile overseas construction project.
