Prowess Engineering On Ikoyi Building Collapse: Why We Withdrew Further Services by CryptoClub2018: 7:14pm On Nov 01, 2021
A letter has shown that Prowess Engineering Limited, the company that began the construction of the building which collapsed in Ikoyi, Lagos on Monday withdrew from the project in February 2020.

The company withdrew its services on grounds that it no longer shared the same vision with its client believed to be Fourscore Heights Limited as addressed in the letter.

Prowess Engineering Limited, which had constructed two other buildings for its client, said it couldn’t guarantee the integrity of the third (collapsed building) from anything above the fourth floor.

The letter titled, ‘Re: Proposed Gerrard Terraces For Fourscore Limited,’ was signed by the company’s managing director, Muritala Olawale who confirmed its veracity to our Correspondent.

It read, “This letter is to formally inform you of the withdraw of our structural consultancy service from the above named project. We arrived at this decision due to the fact that we no longer share the same vision with you as our client in terms of how the project is being executed.

“We can guarantee the integrity of the first two buildings and also work done up to the fourth floor of the third building supervised by us provided specifications have been met in terms of the required concrete strength. This we do not have control over as we do not have the concrete cube test results of each stage of the building till date. Also, note that we are not taking responsibility for any other construction errors that may have occurred overtime on the project.


“Furthermore, we request that our company’s name and logo be removed from the project board and also kindly notify all necessary approving authorities of our withdrawal from the project.

“We regret this decision and the lost opportunity to do business together. We look forward to future cooperation in other projects.”

Meanwhile, The PUNCH learnt that two survivors and a dead body have been rescued from the rubble of the collapsed building.

Never leave ur building project in the hands of a yoruba man. They are just wack.

Imagine the disaster caused by a yoruba contractor. I'm tired of these people.

In other words, few days to go. Remember, Anambra is a done deal. Soludo - solution
Professor Chukwuma Soludo for Governor of Anambra state. Nkea bu nke anyi! Be anyi kanyi n'azo!

Let's hope the letter wasn't backdated because there's no acknowledgment stamp on the letter.

So, we don't know when it was written, it could be in 2020 or 1hour (today) after the collapse.

Thank God for this.

They've made a statement by this that they are indeed committed only to high standards, and can go as far as foregoing a contract if this isn't being met.

Really unfortunate. Smart move from the construction company to protect their integrity. I know that building very well near Lafarge Holcim office on Gerrard. It's been uncompleted for a while and I remember I used to admire it from afar as it was going to be the tallest building in that Ikoyi axis.

This is really terrible. Worked had stopped on the building for a while so it's not like activities were ongoing there on a daily basis. How the collapse then happened on the day a lot of people were present was really an unfortunate luck. Could it also be that the extra load of 50 people unbalanced the already weak structure

Netherland reclaimed over 18000km2 of land from sea and buildings don't collapse their like we have here .... The issue with Nigeria is substandard materials. Dubai too get sea and Burj alrab was built in the sea. However, it is structurally sound and can withstand earth quake sef... For naija, developers just want to use cheap material to build and sell at an exorbitant rate .

I heard Rufai saying so on Nigeria info as I was driving home. I was in that holdup for hours from Burdillion.
Lagos state government is culpable. Both the Governor and Deputy and Commissioner of Police were there by the time I passed. I learnt the owner was trapped too
