1.1 Background to the study

Considering millions of Naira spent on construction work by both the private and government agencies, the daily technology development in small and medium size construction firms, it is therefore necessary to examine the way of appraising and improving the productivity and quality of work in order to reduce the failure of buildings in our environment.

A lot of project are found not capable of withstanding the load impose and dead due to the lack of appropriate tools, instrument and materials.

According to Butter 1981, productivity can be defined as the ratio between output and input. He further stated that productivity is reaching the highest level of performance with the least expenditure of resources.

Mali 1978 defined productivity as the measure of how well resources are brought together in organisations and utilised for accomplishing a set of results.

Calvert 1993 also defined productivity as the ratio between output and input, that is the ratio of the amount produced output to the amount of all resources used in the course of production input. Resources used in the construction industry include land, materials, plants and equipments and man power. The input in most cases is a combination of all the four variables.

A variety of external and internal factors, influences productivity. Productivity reflects a variety of factors acting together to increase the value of output faster than the cost of input. Productivity can assist the construction firm to meet the everincreasing competition and this would improve the working conditions of the operatives. The cooperation of the employees is important and they must be assured that rising productivity would lead to higher earnings.

Inputs and improvement of the productivity of work to the building, and construction. Industry is the work of all the professionals associated with it Architects, Builders, Engineers, Quantity Surveyors, Estate Surveyors, Town Planners, land Surveyors, etc. So, all the professionals listed above have to make the industry a virile one that will make this nation proud.
