SMC Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd.

About SMC

Civil contractor SMC Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. (SMC) works on many government projects. They have successfully executed projects for Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) and Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM).

Project Scope

With a total project value of approximately $60 million (INR 400 crore), SMC was tasked with helping decongest traffic. Their solution was an 1800-meter tunnel. SMC identified the New Austrian tunneling method (NATM) as the best approach for tunnel construction. In addition to the tunnel, a 3213 meter bridge with 144 piers was part of the project scope. The bridge project was billed at lump-sum while the tunnel project was billed at item-rate.

Challenges

  • Land acquisition and forest clearance caused major delays
  • Tracking value of work vs billing
  • Lack of visibility across both projects
  • Scheduling and rescheduling created delays
  • Lack of onsite project personnel maturity
  • Tracking financial and contract documents with expiration dates

Exto Solution

  • Documentation and correspondence stored in one central location allowed for easy access to crucial documentation while preparing a time extension where needed
  • Value of work and all billing done could be easily viewed. Milestone status helped leadership make quick decisions on billing and expedited work
  • Complete project visibility across both projects in real time
  • Work progress monitored through the dashboard with images from any location helped analyze delays, make quick decisions, and revise plans
  • Team was able to understand project management principles, helped expedite work
  • Regular alerts for expiring insurance, bank guarantees, and availability of financial reports to lenders kept project finances on track
