Construction of 10-storey BSTI building in Agrabad has not been completed in 4 years!

The construction work of a 10-storey BSTI building at a cost of Tk 35 crore in Agrabad has not been completed in four years. Although work on Chittagong and Khulna BSTI buildings started at the same time in 2016, the work in Khulna is almost over. But the much talked about GK Shamil’s contractor GK BL (JB) could not complete the ground-level work of the BSTI building in Chittagong in four years.

The concerned engineers of BSTI and Procurement Department said that due to the negligence of the contractor, the progress of the work has not been so much even in 4 years. The project was scheduled to run until June 30, 2019. It was later extended till June 2021. The duration of the project is only 1 month left. Of this, only 25 percent work has progressed. Meanwhile, citing the negligence of the concerned contractor, the Public Works Department canceled the contract with the contractor on May 20. The Public Works Department, the project implementing agency, is going to invite new tenders.

In this regard, BSTI Deputy Director Shawkat Osman said that the tender and work started at the same time as the BSTI building in Chittagong and BSTI filling in Khulna. GK Shamim-GK BL (JB) got the job in Chittagong. And Khulna got another company job. The construction work of Khulna has been completed. But ours Chittagong is still sitting on the ground. Although 3 years have passed since the 10-storey building worth Tk 35 crore, nothing has happened yet. Only a few pillars have risen from below. This is the work of the Public Works Department. They have canceled the contract with GK Shamim’s contractor. There will be a survey next week on what the previous contractor did. There will be representatives of BSTI and pornography and there will be a magistrate of the district administration.

In this regard, Public Works Department Chittagong Region Executive Engineer Zahir Ahmed said, the construction work of the 10-storey BSTI building in Agrabad started in 2016. He could not finish the work in 4 years. The contract with the contractor has been canceled due to failure to complete the work on time as per the contract. I joined the Agrabad office in March and canceled the contractor on May 20. Now all the process will be completed and new contractor will be appointed. A list will be made of what the previous contractor did. GK BL and The Builders Engineers (JB) got the job.
