Ogun Sets To Sign MOU With Building Collapse Prevention Guild (BCPG) On Tuesday

Ogun State Government is set to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a built professional body, Building Collapse Prevention Guild (BCPG), Ogun State Chapter, this Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at the Ministry’s Conference room, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

The State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Town Planner Olatunji Odunlami who made this known to newsmen  in Abeokuta, explained that the move would curb the menace of building collapse and non-compliance to building regulations leading to construction defects.

Odunlami revealed that the Guild would assist the present administration in the monitoring and inspection of building constructions in partnership with the Ogun State Building Production Management Authority (OGBPMA).

The State Government according to him,  "is taking a proactive step towards forestalling loss of lives and property arising from building collapse, hence the need for concerted efforts of organised professional bodies to ensure a more resilient and safer environment in the State".

He added that BCPG comprises relevant registered professionals in the built sector such as Engineers, Architects, Builders, Land Surveyors, Estate Valuers, Town Planners, and Quantity Surveyors, pointing out that the Guild’s objectives include, working in partnership with government and her agencies at all levels, monitoring and ensuring that construction activities were properly carried out.
