We have over 50 years of experience.
Infraprojects is an integrated road EPC company with experience in design and construction of various road/highway projects across 14 States in India. In addition to our EPC activities, we own one operational road project constructed and developed by us on a Build Operate Transfer (“BOT”) basis and seven road projects under the Hybrid Annuity Model (“HAM”) have been awarded to us of which four projects are currently under construction. Our primary business operations are broadly divided into three categories: (i) civil construction activities, under which we provide EPC services; (ii) development of roads and highways on a BOT basis; and (iii) manufacturing activities, under which we process bitumen, manufacture thermoplastic road-marking paint and road signage and fabricate and galvanize metal crash barriers.
Our Company was incorporated in December 1995 and have, since then gradually increased our execution capabilities in terms of the size of projects that we have bid for and executed. For example, one of the first road projects that we executed was for the Public Works Department, Rajasthan in 1997 that had a contract value of ₹ 26.50 million compared with the project awarded by NHAI in 2017, with a contract value of ₹ 24,470.00 million that is currently under construction. Our individual Promoters have more than two decades of experience in the construction industry. Prior to the incorporation of our Company, our individual Promoters were associated with M/s. Gumani Ram Agarwal, a partnership firm, involved in the construction business whose business was acquired by our Company in 1996.
Our principal business of civil construction comprises EPC projects in the road sector and we have, since 2006, executed over 89 projects in this sector. We also have experience in constructing state and national highways, bridges, culverts, flyovers, airport runways and rail over-bridges.
We currently operate and manage one BOT road project which is annuity based and are constructing four road projects under the hybrid annuity model and we have recently been awarded three additional projects under the hybrid annuity model.
Over the years, we have become an established road EPC player and have gradually added facilities to support and supplement our road construction business. As part of our in-house integration model, we have developed in-house resources with key competencies to deliver a project from conceptualization to completion that includes our design and engineering team, two manufacturing units at Udaipur, Rajasthan and Guwahati, Assam for processing bitumen, thermoplastic road-marking paint and road signage and a fabrication and galvanization unit at Ahmedabad, Gujarat for manufacturing metal crash barriers. In addition, as of January 31, 2018, our equipment base comprised of over 3,300 construction equipment and vehicles. Our in-house integrated model reduces dependence on third party suppliers for key raw materials, construction equipment and other products and services required in the development and construction of our projects. We also have a central procurement team which procures major materials and engineering items required for our projects. Our in-house integrated model helps in the timely execution of our projects.
We execute road projects as EPC contractors, construction services providers as well as through PPP model on a BOT basis, with a focus on hybrid annuity projects. For the projects that we deliver on an EPC and construction services basis, the scope of our services primarily includes design and engineering of the project, procurement of raw materials, project execution at site with overall project management up to the commissioning of these projects. In addition, we also undertake repair and maintenance of projects as per our contractual arrangements. For BOT projects, in addition to construction and development of the project we are also required to operate and manage the project during the concession period. Our employee resources and fleet of equipment, along with our engineering skills and capabilities, enable us to execute a variety of road construction projects that involve varying degrees of complexity. We believe that our in-house integrated model and efficient project execution have helped us in executing projects while maintaining quality standards. In the last five years, of the 18 completed projects, 16 projects have been completed early or within the timelines stipulated by our clients.
In March 2010, our Company commissioned a wind energy based power plant at Jaisalmer, Rajasthan with an installed capacity of 1.25 MW under the ‘Policy for Promoting Generation of Electricity through Non-Conventional Energy Sources – 2004’. We are also currently constructing a group housing project comprising of row houses and other residential units at Udaipur, Rajasthan.
While we execute a majority of our projects independently, we also form project specific joint ventures and consortium’s with other infrastructure and construction companies. In particular, when a project requires us or our consortium partners to meet specific eligibility requirements in relation to certain projects, including requirements relating to specific types of experience and financial resources, we enter into such partnerships or consortium’s with other infrastructure and construction companies.
