Quality Buildcon has emerged as the lowest bidder to supply and install pre-engineered buildings at Delhi Metro’s Shastri Park and Najafgarh Depots after the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened financial bids in May-end.
This work (Package CC-141R) is one of the low-value residue projects sanctioned under the 162 km Phase 3 project which is nearing completion.
Shastri Park Depot, among Delhi’s oldest depots, was built in Phase 1 and services the 34.69 km Red Line (Rithala – Shaheed Sthal). Najafgarh Depot was built in Phase 1 to service the 56.61 km Blue Line and was augmented in Phase 3 to service the new 5.15 km Grey Line (Dwarka – Dhansa Bus Stand).
DMRC invited tenders (bids) for this expansion work in December 2021 with an estimated cost of Rs. 14.16 crore and 9 month completion deadline. Technical bids were opened in February to reveal 13 bidders and financial bids were opened on May 25.
Financial Bid Values (Lowest 5)
|Firm||Bid (Rs. Crore)|
|E Pack Polymers||14.79|
Brief Scope: Design, Fabrication, Supply and Erection of Pre-Engineered Steel Structure and Roofing for expansion of Workshop/other buildings at Shastri Park and Najafgarh Depots of Delhi MRTS project of Phase-III
Quality Buildcon’s bid of Rs. 13.17 crore was well below DMRC’s estimate of Rs. 14.16 crore, so I see a contract getting awarded in the coming weeks without a lengthy financial bid evaluation period.
Technical bids for track-work (Package CT-42) within both depots are scheduled to be opened today (June 14). I’ll add an update here with a list of bidders instead of publishing a new post. Note the scope includes work inside the Blue Line’s Yamuna Bank Depot as well.
June 14 – 10 PM Update: DMRC has received 3 bids from:
- Jai Durge Construction
- Paras Railtech Pvt. Ltd.
- Pee Mandal Projects Pvt. Ltd.
Scope of CT-42: SITC of Ballastless/Ballasted Track and Associated Civil Work in Shastri park Depot, Yamuna Bank Depot and Najafgarh Depot for augmentation of Additional Maintenance Facilities for Standard Gauge/Broad Gauge Corridor of Delhi MRTS Project of Phase-III
