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 15 States in India and having recently diversified into projects in the railway sector. Our principal business operations are broadly divided into three categories: (i) civil construction activities, under which we provide EPC services; (ii) development of roads, highways on a BOT basis, including under annuity and HAM; and (iii) manufacturing activities, under which we process bitumen, manufacture thermoplastic road-marking paint, electric poles and road signage and fabricate and galvanize metal crash barriers.
Our Company was incorporated in December 1995 and we have 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 with a Bid Project Cost of ₹ 26.50 million, whereas the project recently awarded by NHAI, i.e. Vadodara Mumbai Expressway project in the state of Maharashtra on HAM basis, to us in 2020 involves a Bid Project Cost of ₹ 27,470.00 million. Our individual Promoters have more than 25 years 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 engaged in the construction business, which was acquired by our Company in 1996.
Our principal business of civil construction comprises EPC and BOT projects in the road sector. We have, since 2006, executed over 100 road construction projects. We also have experience in constructing state and national highways, bridges, culverts, flyovers, airport runways and rail over-bridges.
We have one operational road project which has been constructed and developed by us on a BOT (annuity) basis and 14 road projects which have been awarded to us under the HAM, out of which five projects are currently operational, four projects are under construction and construction is yet to commence on five of these projects.
We have over the years developed an established road EPC business and have gradually added facilities to support and supplement our road construction business. As part of our in-house integrated 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, three manufacturing units at Udaipur, Rajasthan, Guwahati, Assam and Sandila, Uttar Pradesh for processing bitumen, thermoplastic road-marking paint and road signage and a fabrication and galvanization unit at Ahmedabad, Gujarat for manufacturing metal crash barriers and electric poles. In addition, as of December 31, 2020, our equipment base comprised over 6,500 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 have also set up a central procurement team that procures major materials and engineering items required for our projects. Our integrated business model facilitates execution of projects within scheduled timelines.
We execute road projects as EPC contractors, construction services providers as well as through PPP model on a BOT basis, with a focus on HAM projects. For the projects that we deliver on an EPC and construction services basis, the scope of our services typically 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 in accordance with 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, together with our engineering skills and capabilities, enable us to execute a range of road construction projects involving varying degrees of complexity. We believe that our in-house integrated model and efficient project execution capabilities have enabled us to execute projects in a timely manner, and in certain cases before the stipulated timelines, while maintaining requisite quality standards.
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 had also commenced constructing a group housing project comprising row houses and other residential units at Udaipur, Rajasthan.
While we execute a majority of our projects ourselves, we also form project-specific joint ventures and consortiums 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 consortiums with other infrastructure and construction companies.
