Built entirely by Kalsi dry construction (a division of Nigerite), the Cromrite offices in Lagos, Nigeria, has a 60 sqm footprint and is completely framed with light gauge steel sitting on a concrete raft foundation. The frame includes all the internal and external walls, a subfloor and the roof, all of which were insulated using glass wool.
The exterior of the building is clad with a blend of 6-8mm Kalsi cement boards and Kalsi planks, which are painted in what appears to be Kalsi brand colours. The interior walls are finished with screeded and painted gypsum boards while the roof is finished flat shingles.
The entire project which kicked off back in September 2016, took a little less than 3 months to get to the near-completed stage in which it currently sits and cost somewhere in the neighbourhood of N14 million- N16 million (not including what Cromrite describe as a needlessly expensive foundation). The cost covers all other aspects of the building including utilities, finishes, fittings, tiling(for wet areas), windows and doors.
The Cromrite office is a stellar example of what dry construction can achieve with regard to time, cost and quality.
