The construction industry in Nigeria remains a very promising area for the present and for the future. Infrastructure and housing deficit in Nigeria has inspired government support, and public-private partnership (PPP) investments in construction, towards improving the standard of living for the masses. Civil engineering consultants are at the forefront of providing designs, consultancy, and supervision for most civil engineering projects in Nigeria. Consultancy firms are legally required to be registered with COREN in order to practice Engineering in Nigeria. Companies can also belong to the Association of Consulting Engineers in Nigeria (ACEN).
