Welcome to Sharp Edge Design Ltd…
Kindly refer to our website ( to know what we are about.

One of our self given goals is to demystify the prevalent belief that you must have millions and millions of naira before you can build your own house.

It is a fact that over 90% of those that own houses at the outskirts of Lagos would rather their property were located in major city centres.
From our previous posts I am sure you are aware that as a firm, we spent the last one year researching on affordable housing.

Thousands of people are forced to build a long way from city centres because of the astronomical cost of Lands, this decision consequently impacts on them negatively because they are condemned to spending long hours in traffic everyday and getting very little sleep time.

But alas! There is a solution that will not cost you an arm and a leg, all it takes is pooling of funds.
One of our irresistible packages is as mentioned in the title of this post; yes we can help you get a 3Bdr flat in the heart of Lagos and no, it will not be at the outskirts.

What service exactly do we provide for N9 million?
Well for that amount, our service includes a comprehensive feasibility study, the verification and purchase of the property.
After the possession of the property, we produce a very functional and aesthetically pleasing design for a block of flats.
When the design is ready, we proceed to the site for the construction which should be completed in less than 6 months after which the keys to each 3Bdr flat will be handed over to you (the client).

How can this be achieved?
Obviously we cannot promise to get you the flat at V.I, Ikoyi or even G.R.A for that amount but we guarantee that you will get it in very developed areas in Lagos like Iyana Ipaja, Egbeda, Sangotedo, Abule Egba, Amuwo, Festac, Obanikoro, Ojodu, some parts of Ikeja, etc.

We are able to accomplish this because we partner with very competent agents to get the best deals for landed properties in Lagos.
We do our homework hence we are able to get all the necessary information to help us get the best available properties within the ambit of what the budget allows.

Of course you will not be able to get a plot of land and then develop it with N9 million, but by the time funds are pooled together, then you are able to achieve much more.

This offer might be for you the journey towards owning your own Home, for others it might just be the beginning of your own real estate business in that you might decide to put it out for rent or sell it off completely.
If you do decide to sell, you can be sure of getting not less than N14 million for your own flat and if you decide to rent, you can expect anything from N500,000.00 to N750,000.00 per annum.

We strongly advise and encourage you to take advantage of this offer and be the better for it.

As can be seen in our profile, we guarantee:
· Professionalism
· excellent workmanship
· Top quality Project design and construction
· Good balance of economy, functionality and aesthetics
· Timely delivery
· Integrity
We assure you that you will not regret choosing us as we will always work towards exceeding your every expectation.

Call us now on: 0802 835 3440 or 0706 346 4582 and let us help you take your first step in REAL ESTATE…

If you have questions on anything that has to do with Land acquisition, project design, construction, investment in real estate, etc, please call the above numbers to fix an appointment; you can also get details about us on our website –
We will be expecting your call.

Thank you and God bless.




Welcome to Sharp Edge Design Ltd…

In previous posts, we have talked about how POOR DESIGN, POOR SUPERVISION and BAD WORKMANSHIP can negatively affect the cost of a project, today we will be looking at another major bane of low cost housing in Nigeria and that is:


As different people have different mentalities towards life, in the same way different Contractor’s have different mentalities guiding their practice.

I can say with a high degree of certainty that for most contractor’s, it’s all about the money.

Now there is absolutely nothing wrong in making money from projects but where I have an issue is where contractor’s “cut corners” without recourse to the effect their action will have on the project.

One out of the numerous examples I have seen is an incident that happened in 2009 when we were contracted to take over the construction of a block of four flats at Ikota.

The contractor that was handling the project abinitio was seriously “cutting corners” to the detriment of the project.

We later discovered when we moved to site that all of the materials he used were sub-standard hence we had to virtually replace all of the materials more or less: the consequence as you must have guessed – Additional costs.

Thankfully, he had only done the ground beams and was filling at the time we took over.

As a client, it is usually very difficult to know a contractor that is driven by “greed”, so it is advised that he requests for a bill of quantities from the contractor which he should vet and consequently negotiate.

So from the onset, the client has a clear idea of what his financial responsibilities are and the mode of disbursement of funds.

This gives the client the advantage of being able to hold the contractor to his bill at any point in time.

In construction, supervision is key to the success of any project.

The importance of a very good site architect or engineer cannot be overemphasized because if you get it wrong, you are sure to have major problems on the project.

From experience, we have discovered that even the best of artisans CANNOT produce excellent workmanship without supervision.

Sometimes I am amazed at how bereft of innovative solutions an artisan can be.

The supervising architect or engineer is responsible for managing the artisans and making sure they work at their optimum level.

This he does in several ways which I would not want to go into on this platform.

He also ensures that time and materials are prudently managed for optimum results.

Obviously if you are going to remain within your budget, then you have to manage your materials very well and there are several ways to achieve this…

He ensures that there is little or no waste of materials.

A good project supervisor is wired to detect construction flaws even with a glance, when he walks into a space.

Equally important is Time management because in construction, every additional day on site increases the project cost; so the earlier the project is handed over, the better for all concerned hence the importance of time management.

Crashing” is one of the many ways of managing time on a project…

Years ago, we did a design for a client (which as expected he loved), it was a grandiose 5 bdr bungalow that was to be built somewhere in Lagos.

We pleaded with the client to let us handle the project or at least supervise it but he refused saying that he had a mason that had over 17 years experience and that he would prefer for the mason to handle the project.

The client did not call us until they did the casting of the ground floor slab; when we got to the site, we discovered that the floor slab was slanted to about 7 degrees.

The client said he felt there was something wrong with the work that was why he called us.

Of course there was something wrong with it!!!

When we confronted the mason, he gave us the funniest possible excuse for his error; “the slab is slanted because the Land is also slanted”. Can you imagine?

In our last post we talked about how POOR DESIGN can negatively affect the cost of a project, today we will be looking at another major bane of low cost housing in Nigeria and that is:


  1. In the course of our practice, we have discovered that poor workmanship which is very prevalent in Nigeria is a major factor to consider.

    We have seen situations where the client is forced to double spend because of this.

    When work that has been paid for is terribly executed, the client is (sadly so) forced to do the same work item all over again.

    This is an all too common phenomenon in the Nigerian building industry.

    As pedestrian as brick laying is, you will be amazed at how much extra funds the client will have to spend to cover the flaws if it is not well done the first time.

In some cases you find that the plastering has to be about 2 to 3 inches thick (note that normal plastering thickness should be half an inch) to adequately cover the flaws in block setting.

We are talking tens if not hundreds of bags of cement (depending on the scale of the project) not budgeted for.

And that is not considering the extra unbudgeted trips of sand and of course labours.

When you walk into a space and you are welcomed by haphazard and poorly executed works, every sense of appreciation automatically leaves you

Welcome to Sharp Edge Design Ltd…

Kindly refer to our website ( to know what we are about.

We are well aware of the accommodation challenges that most people face in Nigeria and we have resolved to provide a practical solution, taking Lagos as our starting point.

As a firm, we have spent the last one year researching on how to achieve low cost housing with modest finish.

On this website, we will be sharing some of our findings with you, but understand that this will be done with caution for obvious reasons.

We will be looking at a wide range of topics from factors that affect low cost housing, to causes of building collapse, to the integrity of the contractor, to different architectural styles, to grandiose architecture, etc.

Today, we will start a series on the factors that affect low cost housing in Nigeria and they are:


Most times, the client spends a lot more money when the design is done without taking the client’s “pocket or budget” into consideration.

We have been practicing for years now (please refer to our company profile on this website) and we have had to work with a lot of designs and I can boldly say that well over 70% of the designs we have had to work with are unnecessarily extravagant and mostly not functional.

Some design mistakes that increase construction costs are:

  • Unnecessary use of Corridors/Lobbies: This in most cases is a pointer to the fact that the designer/architect does not have a flair for design and is obviously not savvy in space management; the consequence being extra spending on corridors that are not necessary.
  • Complex designs: We have found over time that there is beauty in simplicity and that complexity in most cases breeds extravagance and lack desired aesthetics.
  • Unnecessary walls: Sometimes you don’t have to wall up every space; there is such a thing as an open design and it will still be very functional.
  • Dysfunctional spaces: If a space for instance is not well lighted or ventilated, it then becomes compulsory for the client to artificially light and ventilate it and this will consequently increase the cost of the project.
  • Poor circulation: If a major space for instance is unavoidably used for circulation, then it makes it compulsory to get extra furniture to control movement and this will consequently drive up the project cost.

It is very important for the client to know that in design, one single line can translate to millions of naira during construction.

The architect has the responsibility of carrying out a spatial analysis before a design is done especially when economy is a major consideration.

Presentation Pictures of 5 Bdr Duplex at Ikota

Over time, we have come to discover that most clients even though they have an idea of what they want, they don’t know precisely what they need hence they come up with briefs that are mostly extravagant and unrealistic. With this in view, a company like ours has become indispensable because we are in a vantage position to help our clients organize their thoughts with special regards to Economy, Functionality, Durability and Timing.
