The development of 17-storey NCBMD Headquarters building in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State has been driven by local content. NCDMB achieved 100 per cent local content in the overall services. These include; main contractor, architecture, civil/structural engineering, quantity surveying, and mechanical engineering. Others include; electrical engineering, geotechnical, project management and sub-contractors. NCDMB encouraged high level local capacity building as all site management positions occupied by expatriates have Nigerians as understudies for capacity development and knowledge transfer.
The building contains eight floors of office space and one floor dedicated to oil and gas training centre of excellence.
