SRINAGAR In a big feat, J&K based Beigh Construction Company has been selected among the top 10 best Construction and Infra Companies of India for the year 2018. J&K Crown was selected by an expert panel of CEOs and industrialists, along with CEO Insight Editorial Board based on various standards.
First ISO certified company of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K), Beigh Construction Company (BCC) Pvt. Ltd. is epitomizing these words, aimed at proving that impossibility has the potential of proving it-self to be possible. Company headed by Imran Beigh has successfully accomplished the execution of the longest highway tunnel in Asia `Chenani-Nashri Tunnel’. BCC started its journey with the tunnel construction project for Northern Railways in Banihal region of J&K and Chenani-Nashri, the firm is currently handling key role in the construction of projects like Amravati Chikhli project, Zoji La Tunnel, Railway Tunnel T77D and many other proposals in tunnel construction. BCC is reaping a turnover of around Rs.250 crores annually from its projects.
Sharing his views after this feat of BCC, Director Imran said, In year 2012, I realized that a plethora of infrastructure projects primarily under railway, highways, hydro and underground segments were booming each day. But the alarming fact was that all these projects were being outsourced to behemoths from different parts of the globe and not executed by local construction companies at J&K. This scenario in fact propelled me to come back to India post my education at Australia and join my family construction business to contribute my best for the welfare of J&K. Hence, I incorporated `BCC’ in 2012 knowing our capability in executing any kind of construction project and we gradually became the subcontractors for big companies at J&K.
At present, BCC is handling 44-km stretch highway of Amravati-Chikhli project connecting Nagpur and Surat from IL&FS and completed up to 27 percent of it during the first year of allocation itself. Keeping BCCs success in Chenani-Nashri Tunnel, IL&FS made BCC as their Key Partners for the construction of Zoji La Tunnel with a worth of around Rs.5000 crores. BCC has also completed more than half a kilo-meter of tunnelling for Tunnel T77D, one of the most challenging projects of IRCON International Limited.
In addition to this, BCC has also imported the latest road header for T77D Tunnel which will be deployed for the first time in railway tunnel construction at J&K from the first week of December, 2018. In total, BCC has almost 230 equipment, including single-boom hydraulic jumbo drilling machines, drilling jumbos, hi-tech concrete spraying machines, regular excavators, long-hole drill and many more upgraded machines (with maximum four years of service life).
