Julius Berger to Construct DPR’s 10-Storey new Headquarters Building

Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, has been chosen to construct the new headquarters building of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

Located at the strategic Central Business District of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, the iconic 10-storey building design also called “The Barrel”, is a challenging foretaste in magnitude and technical standard. But Julius Berger says it is a welcome challenge.

Speaking at the event in Abuja, the Managing Director of Julius Berger, Engr. Dr. Lars richter, a well-recognised consummate engineering practitioner who, amongst other professional qualifications, holds a doctorate degree in civil engineering, said: “The building itself reflects an outstanding barrel design, drawing inspiration from the physical oil barrel itself.

It is a modern office building, thoughtfully designed to include and balance the requirements of today’s contemporary work environments”. The building, he further said “features a mix of open floor workspaces, individual private offices, conference rooms and an auditorium… along with additional amenities and social facilities, such as a clinic, restaurant, gym and library”, adding that “sufficient space has been allocated for parking to ensure efficiency in every detail.”
