Building Technology of Mud Structures by the Ijaw people in the Niger Delta. Southern Ijaw Local Government Area as a case study[]

The comfort of man here on earth is enhanced by the construction of a residential home that is well designed and efficiently constructed to exclude not only the adverse environmental factors but should provide adequate light and ventilation. The house must have adequate strength, stability and fire protection for the occupants. Nigerian traditional communities built their houses to meet their social, cultural and religious needs. Building materials comprised mainly mud, wood, stone, thatch, grass and other appropriate vegetable materials. This study was carried out in some selected communities in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area to investigate the building technology of mud structures by the Ijaw people in the Niger Delta, using a combination focus group discussions and walk-through surveys. The result showed that, the house building technology in the Ijaw land is easy and almost all the building materials are easily obtainable from the locality. The walls are made of wood and mud, and the roof sheets are either thatches or corrugated iron sheets (zinc).
