Enia Design is a wholly-owned subsidiary of France’s Enia Architects. Their bid of Rs. 3.08 crore was well below MahaMetro’s estimate of Rs. 5.20 crore, so a contract should be awarded after the Lok Sabha election’s model conduct of conduct ends.

Enia will be responsible for producing and proposing alternate designs of all civil, architectural, building services, electrical and mechanical works for all 8 stations.

This is Enia’s second win in Nagpur Metro’s Phase 2 after design package DDC-02 for Reach 3A & 4A consisting of 11 stations. Here’s a table (best viewed on a Desktop) with the status / contractor of each of Nagpur Metro’s design packages:
