Trikord, the Nigerian distributor of Kalwall, received the 2019 Excellence in Sustaining Urban Development award at the 30th annual ArchiBuilt Exposition, held in in Abuja, Nigeria.

“Everyone was fascinated by Kalwall (at the expo), to the point where we even had architecture lecturers using our booth to illustrate usage of our products and more,” says Trikord managing director Chimdi Ezem.

The exposition is hosted by the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA) and focuses on innovative and sustainable technologies, as well as the contribution of companies to both the environment and the building industry.

Trikord was named the official Kalwall distributor for Africa in 2018. Kalwall, based in Manchester, N.H., is a manufacturer of translucent sandwich panels and diffuse natural light solutions. Trikord was established by Cosmo Base Consortium Ltd. to fill the gap in Nigeria’s construction industry. The company also works with Kalwall strategic partner Structures Unlimited Inc. of Bow, N.H.
