Case study 02-Project Management Services for a Marquee Multi-Purpose Irrigation Project

Polavaram Irrigation Project

The Polavaram project involves substantial quantities of work, including ~110 million CuM of excavation and ~3.6 million CuM of concreting. Given its colossal potential impact and stringent timelines, the Hon’ble CM, Andhra Pradesh has been monitoring project progress on a regular basis. The Project was suffering delays on various accounts and there was an urgent requirement for expediting the Project.

Given our expertise in the sector, we were engaged as a Project Management Consultant (in September 2016) to provide the following services:

  • Project Planning, Monitoring & Cost Tracking Design Review
  • Optimization Site Organization
  • Recruitment Deployment of Key Personnel for Overall Monitoring of Project Execution Identification
  • Finalization of Sub-Contractors / Vendors Contract Management

Within a short span of time, iValue ensured revival in project construction activities through preparation of a comprehensive work plan in line with the budgeted time and cost, induction of specialist sub-contractors and resolution of legacy issues. Despite induction of a new principal contractor, iValue's association with the project is ongoing at the behest of the State Govt., a fact that endorses the significant contribution made by iValue till date.
