Analysis of the Problems and Prospects in the Use of Local Building Materials: Review of Literature

Omole, F. K, Bako, A. I


One of the strong considerations for the use of Local Building Material (LBMs) in housing delivery is that it could reduce cost and enhance foreign exchange earnings.  This paper examines the type of LBMs, problems envisaged in the use of LBMs, its prospects among other issues. This paper is essentially a review of literature from which inferences are drawn. Recommendations towards the use and acceptability of the LBMs include; (i) that various government agencies should engage in the use of LBMs rather than mere campaigning to developers (ii) that every state should establish cottage building industries to improve the supply, and that more researches should be engaged on for more discovery of LBMs.
