EL-ALAN Construction Company (Nigeria) Limited (EL-ALAN or the Company) was founded in April 1982 as a private limited liability company and today is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic construction and civil engineering companies in Nigeria. For over three decades El-ALAN has delivered high quality integrated construction solutions.
Our initial focus was renovations and sub-contract work through which we quickly gained a name for ourselves. Our success and reputation today are built on the consistent delivery of quality, speed, efficiency and overall client satisfaction.
We have expanded our operational and service offering to cater to a wide spectrum of construction needs in both the public and private sectors. Our portfolio of work comprises successful projects in the residential, commercial and industrial spaces, working with clients across all sectors and with differing budgets.
We are an associated member of a group of companies that provide services across all areas of the construction industry. Through our associated companies we have access to world-class ideas, skills and innovative technology which puts us in a unique position where we are able to offer integrated and value-added services to our clients.
Our vision has been the same since the beginning: to be a dynamic construction company with a passionate commitment to deliver value-added and innovative solutions to our clients’ construction needs. We remain focused on building long lasting relationships by consistently delivering a world-class performance.
We have a strong and credible team of over 1,200 people, including 25 highly skilled and experienced expatriates, 450 full-time employees and 750 skilled workers. The team is led by an international group of highly respected engineers who between them have over 150 years of experience in the Nigerian construction industry.
Our Core Values:
Quality We always adhere to principles of best practice and service excellence. In so doing, we have built a name for ourselves that has undoubtedly become a by-word for quality.
Integrity We remain true to our founding values of honesty and integrity and these tenets have been instrumental in our growth and success. High ethical standards and a professional culture characterise all our activities and our clients have come to expect nothing less.
Flexibility We go the extra mile to satisfy our clients’ needs. The flexibility of our approach means that we are able to quickly adapt to changing situations and can maintain our high level of service quality at all times. We offer our clients the accessibility and flexibility of a small company with the expertise and resources of a much larger company.
Commitment We believe that the best results are achieved by the early and committed collaboration of all project-stakeholders from the design and construction process through to the entire performance life-cycle of the structure.
