Henix:


6 weeks for duplex? No go build the one that will collapse on people.

Op should consult @rotecch77 https://www.nairaland.com/rotecch77
or visit any of his construction threads here on nairaland. His nairaland threads speak volumes of him. I'm sure he will also make an input here when he sees this thread

Thanks chief I really appreciated

Truly as you said here in Nigeria with the methodology we adopted here (much explanation on this method) 6weeks is not achievable to build 5bedrooms duplex from foundation to finishing (open key)

If ur blocks of money is ready and available to be dispatched the 90 days is okay professionally.

It was last week Thursday that I discussed with my engineer on the same topic and he promised to deliver in 6 weeks if the money is available.

1. How many weeks can achieve that (from foundation to open key) from your experience?

Let's assume there is enough money for everything. From building permits to unlimited supply of materials.

2. Also from your posts and topics, do you own the construction company or you are an employee with the company?


3. Do you have pictures of projects you have started and finished?

4. Send link so we can peruse

5. Where is your office located in lagos?

I have build such before.
I m also a building engineer
5 months is okay considering the fact that decking must be left to dry after 1 month.

Bukad:
Construction Duration Estimates
1.Building skeleton i.e to roofing level = 5 weeks

2. Finishings (plastering, electrical wiring, windows/doors, tilling, screening/painting, plumbing/electrical fittings)= 6 weeks

Total Duration= 11 weeks (Assuming constructed in dry season)

Cost Estimates
1. Building skeleton= N9.5m ( using stone coated roofing)

2. Finishings = N13.5m (using armoured doors for main entrances, Nigerian paneled casement windows, 60*60 Italian postlene tiles in major areas, Sweethome closed couple plumbing fittings with water heaters,etc)


Total= N23m ( Twenty three million Naira Only)


NB: We can be reached for other professional consultancy as we have delivered such structures around South East. Thanks


Preparing estimates when you've not seen a single drawing... Grossly unprofessional.

You have architectural drawing, Structural Drawing and at times Mechanical and Electrical drawings with specifications whose you have no idea.

Re: How Fast Can A 5 Bedroom Duplex Be Built In Nigeria? by EgunMogaji2: 7:19am On Sep 14
IMHO based on the parameters set, then I don't see why it can't be completed in 90 days or less. If I were to do something like that then it will be with @Spyder880 as the man has engineered a working and proven system. Please don't bother him unless you are serious.

Good luck on your project.

Re: How Fast Can A 5 Bedroom Duplex Be Built In Nigeria? by MRFIXER001: 7:21am On Sep 14
Let me give detailed analysis as an engineer

A week for the foundation and DPC (German floor)
5 days for the block work
3 days for the carpenter slab form work
A day for slab casting (this depend on labor force present)
Let the slab cure for at least a week or 2 weeks before you start working on it to achieve good strength
First floor block work, columns and beam a week
Parapet 5 days
A week for Roofing (depending on height of the roof)
Once they start roofing you get the aluminum expert to start working, plumber and electrifying pipe laying to start working
Door and window installation will be 3 days
Plastering a week
A month for other finishes

It will be completed in 10 -15 weeks if no hindrance
DuduParaPara:
Hey! Guys.

I want to know how fast can a 5 or bedroom duplex be built? I mean in how many weeks?

Let's assume whatever money that will be needed is readily available, dry land is also available and cleared of trees and bushes.

Drawings and render also available.

Building is a contemporary design.

I'll appreciate it if anyone with idea gives a breakdown.

If you also have a rough estimate of the cost please let us know.
Re: How Fast Can A 5 Bedroom Duplex Be Built In Nigeria? by luizpippo(m): 7:22am On Sep 14
Anybody telling you it will take less than 3 months will give you sub standard job unless he has precast slabs, beams and concrete facials to install for you.

As for cost, anything less than 40 million will leave you looking for more to finish the house.

Reinforcements..
Cement.
Tiles
Roof carcass and roofing tiles...
Prices of aluminium windows would shock you.

As you said from building permit ……
In some state like lagos ONLY building permit ( approval) can take you 4-8weeks.
Let’s assumed we put that aside.

Let’s start from SITE PREPARATION it will take you like 8-10weeks if the following are in place
- if it’s dry land
- available of materials
- build as draw
-availability of man power, money , machine
-dry season
-peacefully environment ( some area womonile can delay your work, community can also do same etc)
- choice of finishing
-competence of the contractor
- construction methodology adopted
And many more.

Meanwhile, let's assume only thing client is bringing is money and materials, you are to take care of community, provide man power and machines etc... How long will it take?


Do you also do renovations in the east?
Re: How Fast Can A 5 Bedroom Duplex Be Built In Nigeria? by MRFIXER001: 7:28am On Sep 14
Beware, it's not possible in six weeks, if all structural members are not allowed to cure well, it could lead to building cracks and also finishes alone can be 4 weeks or more than

When it gets to roofing stage, don't fail to contact me for quality aluminum work or visit us at sky aluminum, orlu road. Check signature for contact.

Considering the deck, you should be looking at 3 months all things being equal

Thank you Sir, we have actually started construction, built the complete house, finished and painted a 6 bedroom duplex all withing 3 months. The project is right here on Nairaland, Mr. Dubemcapital1 was in charge of that project. It was done on a dry land in Enugu.

The team we have built around our operations has simplified our building processes, we have all the needed artisans and even more to be called in case of a delay, it wont be easy, because it will need daily supervision and an unrestricted flow of funds.

But it's very possible on dry land.
