Wins Building & Construction Sector Leadership Award at Top 50 Brands in Nigeria event for 3rd Consecutive time
Nigeria’s iconic and most reliable engineering construction brand, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, has for the third consecutive time on won the Building & Construction Sector Leadership award at the highly coveted Top 50 Brands in Nigeria event, which held at Victoria Island Lagos last weekend.
The CEO of IAMBRANDNIGERIA, the organizers of the Top 50 Brands in Nigeria awards, Mr. Taiwo Oluboyede described Julius Berger as a widely acknowledged, operationally sound, technically respected, and a glowing benchmark brand differentiator in the area of its core competence.
According to Mr. Taiwo Oluboyede, “Brand is that thing that makes a consumer choose a product/service over another. It is subliminal and an intangible factor that uniquely distinguishes one from the others.” He added that beyond the pricing of a product or service, patronage and choice is often seriously made by the consumer’s experience as well as the promise of the particular brand; both of which, he said, verifiably define the superior and valuable Julius Berger brand.
Mr. Taiwo Oluboyede said that in order to ensure the necessary and irreducible objectivity of the definitive Top 50 Brands in Nigeria awards, the Brand Strength Measurement, BSM, model of analysis was used both for the nominations as well as for selection of eventual winners in all categories. Branding, he said, is objective, long-term and it is macro in space and time. In the evaluation and rating of the Top 50 Brands in Nigeria in 2018, the Brand Strength Model (BSM index) tests a brand’s ability to deliver its promise to the consumers from the consumer’s point of view.
The model uses basic qualitative elements with seven variables. The variables include brand Identity as top on the mind awareness by consumers; optimal social media engagement; quality elements such as ISO/SON ratings; market and category leadership; products and service delivery processes and innovation; nationwide presence or spread; and environmental and community consciousness and friendliness which consolidates into proactive and healthy corporate social responsibility programmes.
Julius Berger started work in Nigeria with the construction of EKO BRIDGE in Lagos in 1951. Years of steady growth had followed that pioneer project during which JB, as Nigerians, fondly call the company, grew to become the dynamic Nigerian company it is today. Throughout this time, Julius Berger has deployed progressive construction methods to ensure that innovation and quality are prioritized for the benefit of its clients. The Company emphasizes the deployment of progressive construction methods and innovative technologies to achieve sustainable value-driven solutions.

No matter the challenge and regardless of the scope, Julius Berger approaches each project not only as a contractor but as a partner for project success.
The company’s scope covers all areas of construction, including the pre and post phases. By the jealously guarded work culture of the company, success is built on the strategy of having vertically integrated operations, which improve efficiency and timeliness of project execution. Additionally, subsidiaries support the company’s ability to offer a complete range of construction-related services. Julius Berger is a brand that is unmistakably recognized throughout Nigeria, a brand that has built a track record of delivering the highest level of performance and a brand synonymous with quality and reliability.
In the words of the understandably happy head of media relations office of Julius Berger Plc, Prince Moses Duku, who received the strategic brand leadership award on behalf of the company at the 2018 event, , “It is and remains the promise of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc to maintain our earned momentum and be only consistently and increasingly reliable.
