The Concept

The Nestoil Tower is a building with world class standards, innovative, creative and ahead of what is been done in the industry.

The Architect

ACCL Architects did not only design this world-class building with extraordinary quality, but was also responsible as a spokesman for the client, Dr. Ernest Azudialu, president and chief executive officer of Nestoil.

The assignement of the client was to design the companies new headquarters as a pioneer ‘Green’ building, the first of its kind in Nigeria.

The result is a building that shows the Oil & Gas industry in Sub-Saharan Africa a different perspective. The stacking of the building is influenced by an aesthetic desire to achieve a clear and clean façade on the eastern boundary. The building form is conceived primarily as gentle curved surfaces of high performance glazing with horizontal tubular details to accentuate the sweeping effect of the curved facade. The curved curtain walls are further defined by a surround of solid white metal panels to complete the cutting edge contemporary composition of the building.

As one of the fortunate few who will live, work and play within this sophisticated and secured setting, you will enjoy the exceptional benefits of a comprehensive and serviced environment the likes of which has never before been available in Nigeria.

One of the greenest buildings in the country

The green building movement is an integrative effort to transform the way built environments – from individual buildings to neighbourhoods and even entire communities – are designed, constructed and operated. A green building strives to create a permanent shift in prevailing design, planning, construction and operational practices toward lower-impact, more sustainable, and ultimately regenerative built environments.

While energy-efficiency plays a significant role toward green building, the sustainability of sites, water use and sewage treatment, the protection of the ozone layer, the considerate and appropriate use of materials, products and technologies as well as human health and profitability are other key factors in the assessment of a development’s sustainability. LEED certified buildings are intended to use resources more efficiently when compared to conventional buildings simply built to code. LEED certified buildings often provide healthier work and living environments, which contributes to higher productivity and improved employee health and comfort.

Green Certification

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

The Nestoil Tower has attained the Silver Certification according to the LEED Standards which will make it one of the first with that status in Nigeria and also in West-Africa!

The Highest Safety-Level

The safety of the people working in and visiting the Nestoil Tower is one of the top-priorities when designing and constructing the building. Of course you can expect advanced security measures, but also the safety and health of the people using the building are as much important.

The Nestoil Tower is designed and constructed according to the latest standards, inside the building as well as outside. The result is a working environment with the highest level of security and safety.
