Pimpri Chinchwad civic body invites bid for new building construction

The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has floated a Rs 312 crore tender for the new administrative building to be built on the seven-acre land at the auto cluster in Chinchwad. After finalising the bid, the administrative building will be constructed in nearly three years.

Additional Commissioner, Vikas Dhakane, said that there is a need for the new building with the increase of new departments. He added that the civic body intends to start an industry facilitation centre but lacks sufficient space. After 35 years, a new building is a must as it will require 3-4 years for construction.

The new building will have 13 floors, including a spacious cabin for the mayor and other officials.

It will have a five-floor parking facility for 500 four-wheelers and 2,500 two-wheelers. Moreover, the building will also have a 300-seater general body meeting hall.

The expected cost of the project is Rs 400 crore. The total amount of the new tender is over Rs 312 crore.

In 2019, a Rs 246 crore tender was floated, which was cancelled following opposition from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). The building plan had nine floors, proposed at Gandhinagar, Pimpri.

Now, the tender amount has increased by Rs 66 crore.

Currently, the four-floored PCMC building is on the old Mumbai-Pune highway.

According to an official, with increasing departments, the civic body has struggled to manage all under one roof, and most have been shifted to other buildings.

He added that parking space is a big issue, while there is also a need for increasing the warden staff for the civic building. With much pending work, not much space is left for accommodating large staff in the current administrative building.
