"Professionals in the built environment have opted for dry construction as a viable model for bridging the 16 million housing demand-supply gap in Nigeria.

Toyin Gbede, Nigerite’s Director of Marketing, explained that the main advantages of the dry construction are the considerable reduction in both cost and time of construction. According to him, because the materials are designed and produced off-site, building is just like assembling a car or a motorcycle, pointing out that this method increases speed of construction by 30 percent. "Furthermore, because of the speed of construction, developers pay less in terms of interest rate on bank loans, and this saves up to 15-20 percent of construction cost", he said."
