Council received a report that the University was proposing to construct a Porter’s Lodge/Linkway connecting Block ‘D’ with the new Female Hostel donated by Rt. Hon. Dimeji Bankole
Council noted the importance of the project as it will enhance the beauty of the hostel environment and also make for effective hostel administration in terms of security as well as ensuring that the students were not left alone
Council noted that the project will consist of 1 no. Main lounge, 2 no. Bedrooms, Toilet/Bath, 1 no. Kitchenette, 1 no. Store, which could be used by hostel staff, as well as a waiting area.
Council noted that apart from the other benefits mentioned above, the project would also enhance the working environment for hostel staff.
Council noted that the drawings and the bills were done by the Physical Planning Unit of the University, who is the Consultant to the project, if awarded by contract, but however observed that some items like cement were priced very low on the BOQ which was done in January 2011 before the rise in the cost of cement.
Council considered and approved the proposed construction of Porters’ Lodge/Linkway connecting hostel block ‘D’ with the New Female Hostel donated by Rt. Hon. Dimeji Bankole, and also approved that the project be executed through Direct Labour by the Physical Planning Unit of the University with the completion period of ten (10) weeks.
