Test run of all facilities at the Dakkada smart building including a helipad for the facility is to commence in three months.

Commissioner for Special Duties, Rt. Hon. Okpolupm Etteh, stated this in Uyo when he received members of the House Committee on Special Projects Implementation of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, on routine inspection of work at the site.

Rt. Hon. Etteh said work in every aspect of the building will have been completed in three months while the preceding month will be used for test running all facilities in the building.

On the helipad,  Rt. Hon. Etteh said the only stalling factor was completion of approvals by the appropriate agencies after which it will commence.

The Commissioner emphasized that test running the equipment was necessary to ensure optimum performance and to confirm that the right quality of equipment were installed.

On the profitability of the project the Commissioner said that what the state stands to gain far outweighs the cost of constructing the building as such it was profitable.

He  also said that more than 60% of the expected tenants had expressed interest with some  already booking for accommodation and getting ready to move in some critical aspects of their operations and added that the state government had granted organisations willing to occupy the facility several rent free years.

The Special Projects Monitoring and Implementation Committee of the House of Assembly, chaired by the Ibesikpo Asutan State Constituency Representative, Rt. Hon. Aniekan Uko, commended the Ministry of Special Duties for diligence in the supervision of work in the building.

He described the Ministry's helmsman as an ambassador of the House and one dedicated and committed to the completion agenda of the Emmanuel administration.

The Committee thanked the Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel for initiating the project and choosing a company renowned for excellence to implement it.

After being conducted round the facility, several members of the Committee took turns to ask questions some of which bothered on security of occupants of the facility and the need to train indigenous engineering professionals on the maintenance of the installations in the building as well as its structure.
