Review of Progress of State Convention Centre

Yesterday, I reviewed the progress of the Biswa Bangla Convention Centre with engineers of Hidco and top officers of L&T, including Mr R Candran who'd flown in from Chennai.  It seems that while substantial progress would be made by March, the final completion would require June 2017. We decided on this schedule after agreeing to take "sign-off" from all agencies working, bringing in huge crane platforms for false ceiling works, increasing the availability of masons and technicians, concentrating on day-to-day project management review and increasing the stock of shuttering. For quicker decisions, we also agreed to appoint from Hidco an on-site consultant designer-architect who'd be given a site office by L&T for on-the-spot decisions.

At BGBS event at Milan Mela today, at Hall 4, we installed a lighted 3D model of the State Convention Centre. Here is a picture on my mobile:

Sanjit Sharma and Suman Neogy of Hidco as well as Dulal Mukherjee have taken a lot of effort to make this model displayed at the Hall 4 on time - getting passes, tables, light points, transportation, co-ordination etc all takes time and effort. I also give below a link that shows a walk-though video of the New Town Convention Centre and one that will be displayed tomorrow at BGBS:
