      Owned by the richest woman in Africa, Mrs. Alakija Folorunsho, the Famfa Oil Tower is strategically situated on the corner of Kingsway and Olawole Dawodu Roads in Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria. This spectacular edifice sits on a land area measuring 5,695 square meters and was developed by Dayspring Property Development Company, a real estate investment and development branch of Famfa Oil Limited with Julius Berger as the main contractor.

      The 20-floor tower has 3 floors dedicated to Famfa Oil which provides leasable office space and a multipurpose hall, each with a well-appointed entrance at the ground floor. The office complex has top-notch features and services including a gymnasium, helipad with a waiting room, 266 car park spaces, raised access floors, and specific granite finishes.

      The building’s facade also features significant high-performance unitized curtain walling with integrated facade lighting, aluminum cladding, and ballistics performance considerations in certain sections.

      The building has a Rotary UPS system as an alternative to generators such that in the event of a power outage, there is no interruption of power supply thereby ensuring a seamless flow of electricity.

      Alakija, a prominent figure in Nigeria’s property and real estate industry, is among the wealthiest women in the world. She made a lot of money investing in real estate in Nigeria and London after striking it rich in the oil industry. She has Middle Eastern investments as well.

      The sub-contractors on the building project were ACCL as the architects, AA Associates Limited as the structural engineer, and Trevi Foundations Limited as the piling contractor.
