The Indian Union government is inviting prequalification applications from interested companies for the development of the ‘All India Institute of Medical Sciences’ building (AIIMS) in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India.
The proposed AIIMS Madurai site at Thoppur, which is 13.5km from Madurai, is easily accessible via national motorways and regional road routes.
The project is supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, which has provided a loan to the Union government towards the project’s cost.
The government intends to use a portion of the proceeds for payments under the contract for the construction of buildings and site development for the AIIMS.
The revised cost estimate of establishing the premier medical institute has grown higher than the original cost of Rs12.64bn ($152.06m) to Rs19.78bn, reported Deccan Herald.
The duration of the project is expected to be 33 months with an added defect liability period after, which is 24 months from the date of completion.
