ABOUT

Infrastructure Network Services Limited (INSL)

HISTORY

In 2005, group of astute Nigerian professionals converged around the idea of charting an alternative pathway to national development. This measure stemmed from the consensus that the country would remain uncompetitive in the global space unless we radically improved our infrastructure. There was also the sobering realization that government was unable on its own to meet the investment need for closing that gap without patriotic help from the private sector.

The Congress of Professionals [CoP] was formed with the intention to support the nation as consultants in 15 thematic areas of development. Solution templates were rolled out in these 15 thematic areas and supplied to the government sequentially on Housing, Infrastructure, Energy, Health Care, Security, Agriculture, and Industrials. The Congress of Professionals [CoP] produced the platform INSL, Cyrus Group and many other development platforms currently engaging the government at different fronts both as limited liability companies and NGOs.

In 2007, an Integrated Development Masterplan touching such areas as Infrastructure, Agriculture, Oil & Gas, Housing, Youth Development, Education, Health Care, and several Multi-Thematic areas was under the NIGERIAN SUPERHIGHWAY project and presented to the Umar Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan administration. Infrastructure Network Services Limited was the vehicle that conceptualized and drove this audacious initiative.

This effort led to further studies and granular application of the tenets superhighway project into the LABOURDIRECT aspect of the solution template – The Nigeria Infrastructure Corridor & Grid was developed, with a national trunk superhighway designed to have several nodal flash points of industrial developments and logistic system to manage them. The Labour-Direct solution designed and developed in 2010 was a foundational basis for several government development blueprints and campaign documents. [Many major political stakeholders and their various groups saw and validated it]

The INSL approach to the delivery of infrastructure solutions prioritizes building both physical and human capital, such that the enabling environment for growth with employment opportunities can be created. Hence, our solution templates, from design to implementation, anchors on the Direct Development Approach [DDA] principle – which aims to deliberately deploy the services of local professionals [skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled] in the delivery of our projects, from design, to implementation and maintenance.

Equally critical to our approach is the deployment of locally-sourced, environmentally-friendly materials to deliver cost-effective solutions while maintaining the highest standards of quality and durability. This is what sets us apart from others in the industry.
