Cyberpark master plan in 2 weeks

Tenders for first phase of civil work to be invited this month

The master plan for the Cyberpark intended to be developed here by the State government will be finalised in two weeks.

Pre-qualification tenders for the first phase of construction will be invited this month. The work includes the setting up of a common facility centre and IT building.

Cyberpark chief executive officer Binu Pazhoor said the first draft of the master plan had been approved by the board at its last meeting. “The design of the common facility centre and the IT building too were approved,” Mr. Pazhoor said.

The IT building would be finished in 10 months. The facility centre, to come up on 10,000 square feet, would take four months to complete, after the commencement of the works.

The main facility, to come up under the common facility centre, would be an incubation unit to help entrepreneurs.

“The construction works are expected to commence next month. The expected cost for the first phase is Rs.80 crore,” Mr. Pazoor said.

The government had posted project managers to expedite the work. Two Civil Engineers are expected to take charge soon, sources said.

Eco-friendly buildings

Eco-friendly buildings with energy-efficient layouts and interiors, fully-furnished incubators, recreation facilities, banks, ATMS, food courts, day-care facilities, a reprography centre, gym, pharmacy, rain water harvesting facilities and an in-house water purification plant are some of the facilities planned.

“The land acquisition procedures are almost completed. Altogether, 43 acres of land is earmarked,” Mr. Pazhoor said. The Cyberpark would initially create 1,000 direct and 4,000 indirect jobs. “The works are moving on a fast-track basis and the project would be completed in time,” he added.
