LAHORE: NESPAK has been awarded detailed design/review and construction supervision of establishment of Infrastructure in LDA City (Phase-I) by the Lahore Development Authority (LDA), it was stated by NESPAK Managing Director Dr Tahir Masood.
According to the details, the infrastructure development works include the construction of roads, water supply, sewerage & drainage systems, electricity and sui gas supply systems, development of parks, construction of commercial buildings, schools, hospitals and mosques on an area of approx. 28,000 kanals (Phase-1). The estimated cost of the project is Rs33 billion.
The rate of population growth in the Lahore Metropolitan Area has given rise to a demand for some 15,000 new housing units per year. Keeping in view the increasing demand of housing units, Lahore Development Authority (LDA), has planned to launch a Residential Housing Scheme named as “LDA City” to provide plots for construction of houses to the general public. It will resultantly lessen the burden of deficient housing demand for the general public of the city.
LDA City (Phase – I) Housing Scheme has been proposed to be developed on 28,000 kanals of land and NESPAK has been selected to provide engineering consultancy services for this project.
