- Our People
We have a very capable workforce with strong customer orientation and passion for excellence in service delivery. We recruit only the best from the market, equip them with the necessary tools and techniques to succeed, and offer them a competitive remuneration package that keeps them motivated and committed to our vision.
In addition, we appreciate the criticality of the entire value chain that supports our process of delivering value to our customers. This guides our commitment to maintain a good database of local and international suppliers of quality materials and providers of outsourced services to complement our core expertise within the Real Estate space.
Our supply chain partners are selected based on very stringent technical and commercial evaluation procedures and we have over the years, shown commitment to supporting their continuous growth and development.
- Local and International Affiliation
As a contemporary Real Estate company, our approach to design, development, research, and management draws strongly from a pool of systems backed by technology. To deliver this to the market, we have partnered with globally-renowned organizations such as WTF, Cluttons, and Lafarge to enhance the technology side to our building methodology. These partners are helping us build at faster pace; with greater quality, reduced cost and ultimately, empowering the local market with international standards.
We are partners to a number of technology organizations, including Wall-Tiles and Forms (WTF), USA – a recognized world leader in the formwork industry which produces and ships over 30 million ties a year and over 200,000 aluminum concrete forms to Brazil, Singapore, and other markets in 45 countries around the world.
- Our technology
Cast in situ systems, are pre-engineered and pre-fabricated modular load-bearing construction systems. They are a monolithic structure created by filling the entire structure with concrete or proprietary mix. The structures constructed by this methods are load bearing walls and additional load capacity can be obtained by providing extra reinforcement bars or increasing the grade of the concrete.
There are different formworks systems that are peculiar to each building technology. They are light-weight and require limited manpower with less onsite activity as well as reduce wastage on site, and more precise finishes.

- Our Quality Management Systems
At AMDC, we have simplified our construction processes into three key stages – Design, Construction and Delivery. Each of these stages go through a rigorous Quality Control and Assurance process to ensure that we deliver real estate assets that are safe, comfortable and delivers value to their owners or investors.
Our Quality Control process includes a well defined process of pre-qualification of vendors, assembling of experienced Project consultants, and defined quality parameters.
Our Quality Assurance process archives over 4,000 drawings and 100 procedures; ranging from controlled designs to earth works, building service designs, and how the procedures guide our development process.
Each of our construction process goes through the following QMS processes:
- Design: At this stage, we produce a detailed architectural, structural, Mechanical & Electronic, and infrastructural drawings for execution. These drawings are taken through a carefully defined process to ensure that all forms of errors are taken care of, and solutions are proffered to potential challenges.
- Construction: This stage in our building process is guided by several procedures and processes, which include: testing of soil to confirm strength and sameness with the design soil strength; setting out of boundary approval by consultants; excavation and blinding of excavated bases for the foundation; procurement of reinforcement and test certificates from suppliers and confirmation of rebar strength for every batch of reinforcements procured (tensile strength test).
Other QMS process in this stage include: batching of concrete with reference to pre-submitted concrete mix design, flow rate test during concrete casting to achieve a workable concrete for ease of placement and application; collection of concrete samples, at 7 and 28 days respectively, for concrete compressive strength test in order to confirm that the finished concrete produced meets the minimum design strength (e.g. 25n/mm2 or 30n/mm2); and approval at every stage of construction activities by the consultants (Architectural, Structural, Infrastructural and M&E).
At the end, the finished carcasses are inspected for any form of defects to cater for remedial works, and samples of specified materials are brought in for approval before final installations.
- Delivery: At this stage, the entire system is tested to detect faults and appropriate actions are carried out on such defects prior to commissioning. The as-built drawings are also produced, taking note of all changes, before commissioning for use.
