Alpha 1 – Eko Atlantic City

Alpha 1 – Eko Atlantic City


Alpha 1 is a new office development in the Marina District of the new Eko Atlantic City, a coastal city on Victoria Island adjacent to Lagos. The office will feature 14 floors of open offices, a basement and a car park.

Alpha 1 utilized resource-efficient features and technologies to reduce its environmental impact and save on operating costs. An energy-efficient air conditioning system, roof insulation and occupancy sensors reduce the office’s energy use, while dual-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals and low-flow faucets reduce the office’s water use. Sensible heat recovery technology was also installed with the HVAC system to help provide energy to cool the office air.

The developer of the project, ITB, is committed to providing innovative and top-quality construction services across Nigeria. As a part of this commitment, ITB is working to lower the carbon footprints of its projects with the latest technologies in LED and lighting control, smart metering and building management systems.

Alpha 1 has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.

Greenage Student Housing – University of Abuja

Greenage Student Housing – University of Abuja


Greenage is a climate and socio-environmental focused, private sector-led initiative that addresses the student housing gap in Nigeria. At the University of Abuja, Greenage Student Housing will do its part to help close the gap with 248 rooms.

Aligned with Nigeria’s commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent by 2030, the new housing at the University of Abuja will utilize resource-efficient design features and technologies to lower the project’s carbon footprint. LED lighting, external shading devices and solar photovoltaics will be installed to reduce the building’s energy use.

The student housing will also reduce water use with dual-flush water closets, low-flow plumbing fixtures and a rainwater harvesting system.

Greenage Student Housing at the University of Abuja has received an EDGE Advanced certificate from thinkstep-SGS.
