Procurement of Functional Rural Primary School Buildings through the Application of Appropriate Technology for Building Materials and Construction

Japo Oweikeye Morto Amasuomo

Abstract


Most rural primary schools in Ekeremor Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, Nigeria do not have buildings that are conducive for learning because the materials used for their construction are of organic origin such as thatch, mud, timber etc. This made them biodegradable and decay quickly. More frequent replacement of such materials were required because of their low durability. The functionality of such schools in terms of conducive teaching and learning environment was not assured. Appropriate technology for building materials and construction techniques was recommended as remedy.
