Julius Berger Donates Secondary School to Communities
Julius Berger Nigeria Plc (JB) has donated an eight block Secondary School to the Atlas Cove communities of Abagbo, Ebute Oko, Okun Ayo, Store and Tarkway Bay, located near the Nigerian coastline in Lagos. The school was built to accommodate approximately 240 pupils and is expected to be operational in September. The construction of the school was subcontracted to Cornelec Ltd., while JB provided logistics and material support.
Julius Berger has had a history of successful works and harmonious community relations in the Atlas Cove area. In the year 2000 the company was contracted to design and construct a Single Point Mooring, offshore pipeline and tankage facility. Subsequently the company was chosen to build the New Atlas Cove Jetty facility, commissioned in 2003, and to carry out repair works in 2011 resulting from the damage of a bomb blast which occurred in July, 2009. In addition to construction works, JB operates and maintains both facilities on behalf of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.
As part of JB’s ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility, the company also built a medical facility for the Tarkway Bay community in 2003. Further, Julius Berger contributes to creating sustainable value in its host communities through employment of local labor.
