After commissioning and ground breaking new premises in Lekki Penninsula, the Lekki Peninsula Independent Power Plant (Lekki PIPP) which is a generation company (GENCO) relished the opportunity to be able to put their staff and visitors in a befitting office space and state of the art Administrative environment with a creative fit out stamp and branding on the buildings control room/ meeting areas and plant viewing spaces.
Brought on board to design the interior, DOTRubik Associates Limited specified a range of products from Gypsum board drywall Systems and partitioned the open plan floor space into practical rooms with Drywall partitions between rooms and Toughened safety glass partitions along the length of the hall way to provide adequate natural light into the lobby meeting all HSE requirements.
Oladotun Michael Olusola , Associate at DOTRubik Associates Ltd, said: “For this project, PIPP needed an efficient layout which could clearly define the public spaces, such as the plant viewing area and meetings rooms, and the private spaces such as the office and management areas. Additionally, we had to provide the offices with individual electricity controls as opposed to a single light control for the entire workspace.
For implementation of the said design DOTRubik was provided with stringent guidelines for the execution of the contract during a 3 weeks time frame. After negotiations and clarifications on the scope of works to be carried out the project commenced with marking out of spaces and procurement of materials for the project. With an increased focus on working with easily demountable partitions the walls were built using the avant-garde drywall partitions system which is a new technology in Nigeria that generates minimum waste and allows for a faster construction process.
Oladotun continued: “We installed Knauff water resistant gypsum boards, in the breakout areas and storage areas of the building as not only is it a very practical and durable product but it withstands moisture and wet activities. Throughout the main office areas, conference rooms, administrative offices, finance rooms and waiting area, we decided to install Planet designer partition systems with 12mm frameless glass systems and frosting designs.
Mr Habeeb, Director at Vista Advisory, concluded: “Oladotun worked closely with us here at PIPP Genco (Viathan) and was fast to implement our changes to the design, including Audio visuals into the conference room, to deliver the successful end result of an inviting and stimulating interior.
