Strabic Construction Ltd is a wholly indigenous company and was chartered in 2007. It’s vision is to deepen and develope local manpower and engineering professionalism to global standards using best international practice.
Perhaps Strabic Construction Ltd is Nigeria’s resounding answer to Julius Berger, Strabag, CCC, Hyundai, Arab Contractors, Costain construction etc . The company started out from Lagos building fantastic infrastructure for the state government like the over 30 network of roads and two bridges at the Aboru-Abesan-Agbelekale areas of Alimosho which has now been fully opened up to modernity.
Strabic Construction Ltd professional project execution, integrity of raw material, attention to details and perfect-on- schedule finishing and delivery has since endeared it to major players in the public and private sectors respectively.
This excellence in project execution has attracted a broad spectrum of clienteles which has enabled the company to expand it’s operations nationwide doing critical infrastructural work for the Federal and state governments, organised private sector players, international Corporations, World Bank and many others. Surely this is no mean achievment for a local breed.
From the multiple excellently constructed urban development roads in Alimosho to the Aboru-Abesan-Agbelekale link bridge and the other bridges, Strabic construction has stamped it’s brand of excellence in Lagos state and beyond. Planned and ultimately supervised by LAMATA in 2017, the Oshodi-Abule Egba Express way including it’s BRT Corridor component sits at the top of the pecking order of quality.
No wonder Lagosians earnestly await the commencement of the second phase of this BRT themed project from Abule Egba to Toll Gate at the Ogun state border. The ongoing Sagamu interchange to Abeokuta in Ogun state is another marvel in the making. Several other Federal infrastructural projects all over the country attest to the grand reputation this great company is gradually crafting for itself.
The critical success factor in all of these is actually the vision and exertion of one man. He has indeed stamped his personality on the company and this has made the difference.
Engr. Lekan Adebiyi (FNSE) Managing Director Strabic Construction Ltd is a Fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and a veteran in the sector. He is a veritable and confirmed workaholic with spartan taste and work ethics. This has been fully imbibed by his quality workforce hence the successful and qualitative on-schedule project delivery the company is now known for.
With an open and accessible leadership and management style devoid of undue protocols, Staff loyalty, diligence, performance and sacrifice is automatically cultivated and assured.
Importantly he is big on staff welfare, healthcare and up to date counterpart pensions contributions. No wonder Strabic Construction staffs take special pride in the emerging brand they are helping to build.
Further more Engr. Lekan Adebiyi who is happily married to delectable Lady Omolara Adebiyi with lovely children is a practising Christian with deep faith and abiding believe in God the destiny maker. This scenerio coupled with a peaceful and loving home front has nurtured his humility, personal integrity, large heartedness, love of humanity and massive charity works.Thus ensuring a contented outlook to life that rejects mediocrity and compromise in life and in project delivery as well.
Indeed we are immensely proud to identify with Strabic Construction Ltd, a company with a moral compass for excellence. Engr. Lekan Adebiyi may prefer operating from under the radar and near anonymity ; but the great performance of his company, Strabic Construction Ltd has exposed him like a gold fish that has no hiding place.
This exposure however is for good and serves to develop and motivate other indigenous talents in different field of human endeavour. This then is the purpose of the award: to celebrate and sign post excellence while also mobilising and motivating upcoming talents that – Yes we can! As a people we can achieve anything.
