PROFILE

ECO-BUILDING SYSTEM NIGERIA LIMITED (EBSN) was incorporated in May 1998 with Registration No.: 335373. It is a wholly owned Nigerian Private Limited Liability company managed by renowned successful and reputable businessmen and women to provide quality, durable and affordable panel/modular houses for Nigerians. Our aim is to provide unique and affordable panel/modular houses for our teaming population. The houses are patterned after Eco-Building System (EBS) of the United States of America, a leading housing concern that has created a niche in the American market and whose continued commitment to research has left a mark in the American housing history.


MISSION

Successful businesses develop around result-oriented culture and a set of principles that are well understood by management and staff. Our mission is to provide unique, timely, affordable and quality assured modular houses for Nigerians.


STRATEGIC FOCUS

The need for housing development in Nigeria cannot be overemphasised. Apart from the teaming population, there is high cost of erecting conventional houses thereby making it expensive for most Nigerians. Our strategy is to produce quality houses in order to meet the housing needs in the country in the new millennium.


ECOCRETE TECHNOLOGY

The technology is the architect of Eco-Building System incorporated in San Diego, Califonia in the United States of America. The main feature of the system is mass production of modular houses with minimum time possible. In fact, four houses can be assembled in a week compared to conventional houses which take minimum of eight months. The panel walls are normally mounted on a galvanised steel frame, which is the skeletal structure of the house. Another feature is the ceiling, which is made up of treated Ecoply. Roofing, plumbing and wiring are conventional but require skilled personnel to ensure that flawless integration with the ecocrete structure is achieved. A completed house is water proof, termites resistant and most importantly, cheap and affordable.
