Piqued by the spate of building collapse in the country, the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has set up an adhoc committee to address the menace.

The agency noted that the construction industry is dynamic, pointing out the need to set up a committee that would be equipped of latest technology and innovation used in the sector.

The Director General, SON, Osita Aboloma, during the inauguration of the standardisation and quality assurance technical committee for the construction industry, yesterday in Lagos, said the committee was set up to fine-tune the standards and international best practices in building and civil works to address building collapse in Nigeria.
