URC Construction on Tuesday beat Sam India Builtwell by just Rs 3 lakh to perform architectural finishing work at 7 stations of the Delhi Metro Magenta Line’s extension, after the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened financial bids.
DMRC invited tenders for Package DC-10A-R in December 2020 after canceling and splitting up DC-10 which saw just DRA Infracon participate. Besides architectural finishing, the scope also includes installation of prefabricated steel roof structures at 7 stations located at Keshopur, Paschim Vihar, Peeragarhi, Mangolpuri, West Enclave, Pushpanjali and Deepali Chowk.
DMRC’s estimate was Rs. 89.76 crore and deadline 720 days (2 years). Technical bids were opened in February to reveal 12 bidders – 10 of whom were disqualified.
Financial Bid Values:
|Firm||Bid (Rs. Crore)|
|URC Construction Pvt. Ltd.||97.50|
|Sam India Builtwell Pvt. Ltd.||97.53|
Package Number: DC-10A-R
Brief Scope: Architectural Finishing Works Including Design, Fabrication, Supply, Erection & Roof sheeting of Prefabricated Steel Roof Portal Pre- Engineered Building (PEB) Structures & Foot Over Bridge (FOB) including Design & Construction (Substructure & Superstructure) & necessary changes in existing station for connection of FOB, External facade, Water Supply, Sanitary Installation, Drainage, Site development works at Seven Elevated Stations namely Keshopur, Paschim Vihar, Peeragarhi, Mangol Puri, West Enclave, Pushpanjali & Deepali Chowk on Janakpuri West to R.K.Ashram Corridor (Extn. of Line-8) of Phase-IV of Delhi MRTS
URCC’s bid was 8.6% higher than DMRC’s budgeted estimate, but I don’t see this going into a time-consuming retender.
Civil construction work on these 7 stations is currently being carried out by CCECC – KEC JV under the 12.375 km Package DC-01 (Vikaspuri Ramp – Haiderpur-Badli Mor) as part of the line’s 28.92 km extension from Janakpuri West to RK Ashram in Phase 4.
Back in May, Lisha Engineers won a similar contract (DC-011) for the 12.098 km Pink Line’s 8 stations between Maujpur to Majlis Park.
