COMPANY’S OVERVIEW

Julius Berger's presence in Nigeria dates back to 1965 when the firm

won a tender to construct a ₦31.2 million second mainland bridge In

Lagos. The project was a significant civil engineering endeavor because

it was the first in the country to be built with pre-stressed concrete.

The construction of the bridge was designed in phases with the first

phase completed in 1969 and last phase completed in 1974.


COMPANY’S OVERVIEW CONTD.
While working on the project, Berger undertook other projects in the country, a

municipal water works project in Jos awarded by the government of Benue-

Plateau State was the firm's first construction project outside of Lagos State.

This project involved building a reservoir to conserve rain water and building a

dam, water treatment plant and tanks. The firm's efficiency in building the first

phase of Eko bridge made it a top choice to repair the bridge over River Niger

which had been damaged during the civil war . This project kept the company

busy in Nigeria.

machine.
Maintenance on asphalt milling
machine.
Making or changing of conveyor’s belt.
DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED
 Language barial.
 Restriction to learning.
 The working environment is not totally safe.
 Unavailability of some spare part result in delay of some
work
 Lack of some PPE was also a challenge.
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

 Spare parts should be made available at all times to


avoid delay of work.
 Students on IT should be giving a wide range to learn.
 All PPE should be made available at all times to
enhance safety of individuals.

 Government should made laws to any expert coming


to the country to work must learn how to write and
communicate in English language.
RECOMMENDATION
I will recommend that various higher institutions of
learning should liaise with companies to provide
attachment place for students because most times
students don’t get the place of choice for industrial
training .
With the advent of modern and automated mechanical
equipments for the maintenance of machines,
industries should be encouraged to employ the use of
these inventions to ease production processes.
CONCLUSION
Finally, with the level of both technical, inter-relation
and administrative knowledge impacted on me in the
course of my SIWES training, I can attest to the fact
that the program is worthy of stay and improvement.
The principal objectives of SIWES were successfully
accomplished.
