The Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (NIQS) has moved into its new head office in Mabushi District, Abuja, and has urged the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) to construct the link road to the complex.
Welcoming stakeholders and the press in the new building on Thursday, the President of NQIS, Mohammed Abba Tor, said, “This is a functional, well-designed, purpose-built office complex which befits the status of the NIQS as a professional body that has been in existence for over 50 years.”

He stressed that the edifice was one of the fundamental strategies of the institute in ensuring that the next 50 years would be anchored on a solid foundation which “signals our commitment to our esteemed members and the wider society.”
Tor acknowledged the contributions of his predecessors in office, especially, the immediate past President of the institute, Obafemi Onashile, who is now the President of the African Association of Quantity Surveyors (AAQS).
He said, “The work they did, and which the current national executive council continued with tirelessly and diligently in ensuring that all the outstanding items were concluded, is the reason we are able to occupy our own head office today.”
