FENS PROPERTIES: The Leading Indigenous Contractors With Int’l Standard

By Henshaw NYONG in Uyo.



Since the amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914, the country has depended mainly on foreign contracting firms for its construction works and projects. In fact, in our Country, the bigger and more complex the project, the more reason it should go to a foreign company.

Although foreign firms are still dominating construction in Nigeria, it is however soothing to see that some indigenous construction companies have carved a niche for themselves in the sector. Presently, one indigenous construction firm that is progressively taking the lead and raising the bar in the construction business is Fens Properties (Nigeria) Limited.

Fens Properties, the brainchild of Mr. Michael Asuquo Udofia – a successful businessman who has built an empire in the Country’s oil and gas sector through his Fens Oil (established in the 90s), hails from Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.

Incorporated and registered on 21st May 2009 with Registration Number 820156, Fens Properties Nigeria Limited prides itself on its track record of delivering topnotch projects with the same quality and performance obtainable from first-class foreign construction companies operating in the country.

In over a decade of its existence, Fens Properties is best known in the industry for the quality of their jobs and the culture of excellence they exhibit which is rarely found among indigenous construction companies in Nigeria. Among the factors that distinguish the company as a top indigenous construction firm in the Country are their quality of delivery, attention to details and the professionalism of their project teams.

Another distinguishing factor is that Fens is managed by a project management team, regardless of size or scale of work. So, whether it is a self-build or consultancy, the company’s experienced project managers, site supervisors and construction managers are on-hand throughout the process to ensure that the project is completed safely, on-time, within budget and ultimately, to a high standard before handing over to the client.

Scope of Services and Operations:

Being a multi-service construction company, Fens Properties has completed several residential, industrial, commercial, institutional and infrastructure projects in the Country, the latest being an ultramodern Faculty of Arts storey building, completed with lecture halls and offices, the ongoing Faculty of Law building as well as a state-of-the-art Lecture theatre, all located at the Permanent site of the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

What the Clients say:

Because Fens Properties is synonymous with delivering top-notch jobs on record time, their clients have eulogized the company for maintaining a high level of quality and professionalism on all their projects.

Attesting to the company’s competence, the Vice Chancellor, University of Uyo; Prof. Nyaudo Ndaeyo, during the recent inauguration of the gigantic Faculty of Arts building, lauded Fens Properties for the quality of its work in the campus.

Unlike other contractors who either abandoned their jobs or had no financial strength to deliver on record time, the VC assured that Fens will enjoy the University’s continuous partnership and support to deliver other buildings and infrastructure in the campus.

On his part, the Director of Works in the University, eulogized the company for  providing high quality services. He noted that all materials used by the company, their services and works were in accordance with the international best practices. He submitted that Fens Properties carried out laboratory tests before and during operations in first class laboratories to ensure compliance with the relevant specifications and laws.

Analysts’ view:

To analysts, the competence and professionalism demonstrated by Fens Properties clearly demonstrate the readiness of the indigenous contractors to make a bold statement on quality job delivery. They are further of the view that other organizations and corporate bodies should trust the company, as this will certainly go a long way in reducing youth unemployment and save the nation from capital flight.


In view of the documented testimonials the company has accumulated from professionals and other highly reputable clients/organizations, it can be deduced that Fens Properties Nigeria Limited remains the numero-uno in the industry and can compete favourably with any foreign companies.

Therefore this is the right time for States and Federal Government of Nigeria to give indigenous contractors like Fens Properties enough room to grow through constant patronage. Contact them at their headquarters located at 70/72 Edet Bassey Avenue – off Abel Damina Way, Osongama Estate, Uyo, Nigeria.
