Lekki Gardens makes a comeback…
Lekki Gardens innovative offers got a lot of buzz in the market
Lekki Gardens, the real estate development company with attractive marketing promotions and unmatched prices for its apartment units, suffered significant set-back when on Tuesday the 8th of March 2016 a 5-storey building it was constructing in the Lekki axis came crashing down. The result was that over 30 people lost their lives and the Lagos State Government shut down the operations of the company and its estates.
As a testament to its resilience, the company which started business only four years ago but gained nationwide fame for its customer-centric pricing, has announced its intention to return to the market. In a move to boost confidence of its current subscribers and the market in general, the company has announced that it is strengthening its corporate governance structure by the appointment of high flyers and reputable professionals to the positions of Chief Estate Relations officers, Chief Legal Officer, Chief Human Capital Advisor and most important, a Chief Technical Officer to ‘oversee the development of new estates’
Also announced as part of the package is the Health, Safety and Environment Standards as well as Quality Assurance Policy for the company. The company has engaged some of the brightest and best hands to execute these policies and encourages subscribers and prospective buyers to view and verify the data and processes.
As an additional layer of assurance, the company has announced the engagement of the cream of the construction industry as external consultants. In structural engineering you cannot do better than Ove Arup & Partners, the firm of Morgan, Omonitan & Abe, UFA Associates, OAA Associates and Pinconsult Associates, who among others have been engaged by Lekki Gardens. On the architecture side, A.T Onajide Associates and OAC Architects have impeccable pedigree and the firms have been engaged to redesign some of the projects.
The company has promised an improved system of communications and engagement with both the public and its subscribers. This new system of openness and transparency was tested when the Residents Associations of one of its locations, complained about the state of infrastructure in the estate. Lekki Gardens responded by tackling the problem head-on by engaging aerial consultants to examine the issue and discussing the article openly instead of smothering it.
The results of an informal poll conducted on twenty CASTLES Lifestyle readers showed that the public would be receptive to new offerings from Lekki Gardens as all respondents said they would consider any interesting offer from the company. “They should do Christmas for us” was the cheeky response of one of them.
