National Stock Exchange-listed NBCC India Limited, formerly known as National Buildings Construction Corporation, has invited tenders for the construction of India Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, a project valued at $30m.

The electronic tender invite calls for contractors with valid licenses to work from Dubai’s Department of Economic Development to bid on the Asian nation’s pavilion for the World Expo, which will run from 20 October, 2020 to 10 April, 2021.

NBCC is a civil engineering construction services provider that is owned by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Government of India.

The construction contract will be awarded by NBCC DWC, a subsidiary company of NBCC, and the project’s scope of work includes the construction of a three-storied structure. The pavilion will feature thematic areas for exhibition and curation.

Contractors picked to deliver the project will also be required to provide heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning services; information and audio-visual infrastructure; public announcement systems; solar-powered water heating networks; fire protection systems; escalator and elevator services; and operations and maintenance work during Expo 2020 Dubai's 173 days.

Following the next World Expo's completion in 2021, the contractor will carry out work related to the decommissioning of the plaza structure. 

NBCC expects to hand over Expo 2020 Dubai's India Pavilion by 31 August, 2020. 

According to the tender notice published on 16 April, 2019 – the same day that Germany broke ground on its national pavilion at the expo site – NBCC is incorporating a subsidiary company in Dubai to manage the rights and obligations under the e-tender invitation.

The final date to submit bids is 10 May, 2019. To access the Indian government organisation's tender document, click here.
