COMMISSIONER FOR HOUSING.


The International Conference Center – ICC, was born out of the vision of His Excellency Chief (Dr.) Willie M. Obiano, in his zeal for accelerated infrastructure provisions across Anambra State. The urban design task of the ICC was to create an instantly recognizable landmark – an iconic structure - at the terminal point of the future extension of the Awka Millennium City axis. Thus, the ICC aims to represent the city’s vision of itself as a cosmopolitan city with excellent infrastructure.  In other words, the new complex will not – as usual – simply occupy public space, but rather act as a basis for a new urban story, changing of ideas and for the construction of a prosperous future – legacy project.


The Concept Model of the ICC


The design is of ultra-modern international standards with a minimum seating capacity of 10,000 persons. The structure is to be provided with all the facilities and equipment necessary for international conferences, private parties, civic activities, and also would be capable of catering to many other functions such as indoor sports.


The programs contained in the complex include, but not limited to, covered drop-off area, a grand entrance foyer with atrium space, sub-dividable grand auditorium/ballroom - arena, an exhibition hall/museum, meeting rooms, green room, storage spaces, restrooms and associated spaces. Included within the exhibition hall will be a workshop/seminar area for professionals that will be used periodically throughout the year.

 

Features:


In general, the International Conference Center – ICC - project involves a design of a state-of-the-art International Conference Center with the following features:

               

The site, measuring 9 Ha, is in the state capital - Awka Capital Territory - and lies along 2 major roads connecting Onitsha and Enugu - the "Expressway" and the "Old Road;"


The protocol access and the executive parking area, service access, truck delivery and waste disposal route is located at the tail end of the site, thus freeing the front driveway to the entrances from transit traffic. The side main entrance from the ‘Old Road’ extends to a road on the opposite side, along the high tension line corresponding to the future developments, including the connection to the future ancillary 5-Star Hotel.


The structure is iconic and is strategically sited. It is anchored in the mental landscape of the population and the international community, neighboring other notable developments and facilities such as the Awka Millennium City Estate, Prof, Dora Akunyili Women Development Center and Stanel World;


The parking lot is nestled in the center of manicured greenery and has a capacity to accommodate over 1,200 vehicles;


The exhibition hall and the main space – grand auditorium/ballroom - will be divided by movable partitions. Meeting rooms may also be made flexible by use of movable partitions to accommodate various number of persons in given groups


Circulation and service -all mechanical/HVAC /electrical/IT service are to meet any code required fire safety and egress of the structure will be analyzed in conjunction with the designated programs;


The proposed workshop/seminar facility for Professionals may occupy one area of the exhibition hall.


The Benefits of the ICC


The benefits of the International Conference Center – ICC - to Ndi-Anambra is immeasurable. There will be civic pride, hundreds of direct and indirect jobs created, international exposure/recognition and immense increase in the State’s IGR. The essence of the International Conference Center – ICC, Awka is highly underscored by the imminent availability of the Anambra State International Airport, the Second Niger Bridge and the dredging of the Onitsha Seaport for vibrant seaport operations in Anambra State.
