3 Bidders for Bhubaneswar Metro’s Detailed Design Consultant Contract BCDD-02

Three consulting firms have submitted bids for Bhubaneswar Metro Phase 1 project’s Detailed Design Consultant (DDC) contract BCDD-02 after the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened technical bids in late-May.

The scope of this contract includes two parts. The first pertains to 26.04 km Line-1’s Phulapokhari Depot and its Operational Control Centre (OCC)’s architectural, electrical & mechanical (E&M), traction and civil works. This facility for servicing 26.04 km Line-1 (Biju Patnaik Airport and Trisulia Square) will be built under Package BBC-02 and a contract to M I A Construction was just awarded on June 14 (see details).

The second part involves proof checking Line-1’s substructure (viaduct), special span (location unknown to me, but likely over Indian Railways’ line on Barang Road), stations and 750V DC traction & power supply works.

DMRC had invited bids for this consultancy contract in March 2024 with a Rs. 22.20 crore estimate and 36 month deadline. Technical bids were opened on May 22.

List below shows lead bidders (some may be in a JV with other partners)
