5. A cost calculation report for the port development;

Description of technical specialization provided by the firm:

The proposed Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Shilpa Nagar (BSMSN) will be the first multi-sector economic zone in the country. Developing a master plan (plot #22) NVSL involved four experts for this project. In this service initially, we had conducted a topo-survey to get the initial primary data like elevation, BM point, and other features. Then we had reviewed the EZ main masterplan and the results: 

Currently, the area is of low elevation containing a small forest along the coast. Due to the absence of proper flood control and embankment facility, this large area is almost barren. BSMSN Plot 22 consists of about 277 ha divided into sub-plots. Phase-1 EZ development will involve land development, site development, and construction of internal road network, rainwater drainage network, flood retention canal, water supply system, wastewater treatment system, a power station with a sub-station, telecommunication system, gas distribution networks, and port facilities. After that, various industries will be established. And according to the instruction of the experts we had made the work possible.
