- ItemOpen AccessAcademic Professionals’ and Developers’ Perception of the Prefab Housing System in Lagos State: A Comparative Study(Department of Architecture, University of Lagos, 2019) Dixon-Ogbechi, Bolajoko Nkemdinim; Adebayo, Anthony KayodeDespite all government efforts to the contrary, there has been housing shortages in Nigeria. The prefab housing system, a modern construction method has been used successfully by some nations to overcome this problem. Yet, this system has not been extensively adopted in Nigeria. To encourage its adoption, there is a need to investigate key stakeholders’ perception of this modern construction method. This study adopted the survey research approach to comparatively investigate the perceptions of academic professionals and developers of the prefab housing system with the aim of identifying the key variables that can promote and hinder its adoption so as to formulate appropriate marketing strategies to promote its adoption in the Nigerian built environment. A sample of 250 respondents comprising of 150 academic professionals and 100 developers was selected using the multi-stage sampling approach. The data gathered was analysed using descriptive statistics on the SPSS version 21. The hypotheses were tested at the 5% level of significance using the Levene’s test for equality of variances and the independent samples t-test. It was discovered that built environment academic professionals and developers in Lagos state are equally familiar with and knowledgeable about the prefabricated housing system. And they both have similar views about the factors that could hinder/promote the sustainable application of prefabricated housing system in Lagos State. Hence, in formulating relevant policies to promote the adoption of the prefab system, policy makers need to focus more on strategies that will encourage academic professionals and practitioners to apply this modern construction method.
- ItemOpen AccessURBAN MASS HOUSING IN LAGOS METROPOLIS, NIGERIA – THE POTENTIALS AND MARKETABILITY OF PREFABRICATED HOUSING SYSTEMS(Academic OASIS Publishing Miami Beach, Florida, 2007) Adebayo, Anthony Kayode; Dixon-Ogbechi, Bolajoko NkemdinimResearch has shown that affordable housing is a serious issue in the global economy hence there is a need to find a sustainable system of meeting the housing demands globally. In Nigeria, notwithstanding the efforts of government and private sector the housing problem still persists. The prefabricated housing system that has been tested in different parts of the world where housing program has been more successful seems to have the potential of a paradigm shift in mass housing production. This study adopted the exploratory research approach to investigate the potentials and marketability of prefabricated housing systems in metropolitan Lagos, Nigeria. It used the multistage sampling technique to study a sample of 150 built environment academic professionals in tertiary institutions in Lagos using the quantitative approach. The data was analysed using descriptive statistics on SPSS 21 and it was discovered that though the prefab system for housing production is not sufficiently adopted in building urban mass houses in Lagos metropolis; yet, it is believed that this system is marketable, appropriate and is the future for urban mass houses in Lagos metropolis.
