Eptisa will provide detailed design services in the Coastal Towns Infrastructure Improvement Project in Bangladesh

The project will be developed during five years in coastal areas naturally exposed to the risks caused by impacts of climate change

March 17 2014

Climate change and variability are critical development issues for Bangladesh, particularly in its low lying coastal areas naturally exposed to sea level rise, storm surges, and more frequent and intense storm events. The government, in its Sixth Five-Year Plan, has targeted assistance to vulnerable coastal populations with improvements in climate resilient water supply, sanitation, drainage, and flood protection infrastructure.

To achieve this purpose, the Government of Bangladesh, through the Local Government Engineering Department, has awarded to Eptisa in consortium a five-years contract to provide "Detailed Design Service and Consultancy Services under "Project Design Advance Project" for Coastal Towns Infrastructure Improvement Project" financed by the Asian Development Bank.

The project takes an integrated approach to urban environmental improvement in vulnerable coastal towns of Bangladesh which suffer deficits in basic urban services and are severely at risk to the impacts of climate change.

The project aims to provide climate resilient municipal infrastructure with key investments in water supply, sanitation, drainage, urban roads and bridges, solid waste management, slum improvements, and transport facilities.

Eptisa, in consortium, will undertake detailed engineering designs, including specifications, drawings, and detailed cost estimates, and feasibility studies such as preliminary engineering design and cost estimates of subprojects, as well as will conduct physical surveys. Eptisa will also prepare the bidding documents and undertake the Development Project Proposal preparation for investment project and will assist during the approval process, among other activities.
