The construction range of civil engineering and E&M equipment for TIAA MRT ME01 tender comprises all designing and engineering contents of relevant equipment in and around Chingpu Depot and Lujhu Depot and two bulk supply substations. Engineering contents included civil works, water conservation, structures, land, buildings, landscape, signs, E&M, machinery, elevators and sewage systems.
In late July, 2015, MKH J.B. Consortium, the contractor, has submitted for construction completion and requested partial acceptance according to general terms in the construction contract. Via verification and confirmation meeting respectively held by the supervising unit and MRT Engineering Office acknowledging the completion of contract contents, the construction completion date was authorized Aug. 17, 2015.
The scope of this partial acceptance did not include “pre-operational testing” and “RAMS validation demonstration” according to provisions of the contract. Due to preceding stationing and usage of certain items by the operating unit, the MRT Engineering Office implemented the partial acceptance according to relevant provisions of the contract and procurement law considering fairness and rationality. The acceptance work was passed down to five groups for preliminary acceptance on five respective days, Dec. 17, 18, 19, 21 and 22, 2015. Each group verified the acceptance categories in conjunction with the contractor and its supervising unit and the defects were described in the BOHSR ISO form, “project preliminary acceptance / acceptance checklist”. The defects were resolved in mid-January, 2016 under vigorous progress and the follow-up inspection was completed on Feb. 3, 2016. In subsequent, the contractor will report to BOHSR in conjunction with the operating unit to handle matters relating to acceptance.
