Meet #LetsTender: A Nigerian Startup Connecting Clients with Construction Experts
At the Stakeholders forum of the Nigerian Building & Road Research Institute (NBRRI) in May 2011, according to researchgate, it was stated that the use of poor materials as well as poor workmanship by quacks is highly responsible for the collapse of buildings.
In 2014, over one hundred and twenty deaths related to building collapse were recorded in Lagos. Similar stories have been told of cities like Port-Harcourt and Abuja. In a bid to provide scalable solutions, LetsTender.com, a Nigerian startup seeks to bridge the gap between clients and construction experts. This is to ensure safe and successful construction projects.
