JRTT publishes tenders for 4 new stations on Hokuriku Shinkansen line

The Japan Railway Construction, Transport and Technology Agency (JRTT) published four calls for tender regarding design of stations along the Hokuriku Shinkansen line, which is expected to link the cities of Kanazawa and Tsuruga, on the Western coast of Japan. The line is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2023.

The four tenders are conducted under the international WTO rules, and concern the basic and detailed design of each station. In Japan it is still common to separate design and construction of large public infrastructure projects, and even to have basic design and detailed design contracts tendered separately. This is also one of the reasons why very few design-related contracts are tendered under WTO rules.

As is usual with construction-related tenders, interested parties are invited to first submit expressions of interest. For these tenders the deadline is set at September 20th.  The deadline for submission of proposals is set at November 15th.

The contracts concern the construction basic design and engineering design of the main building, coverage for passengers and communications room. The proposals submitted should reflect local characteristics and culture, in order to give the stations a distinct symbolic function for the coming years and take weather conditions into account. Life-cycle costs should also be an important element of the proposals.
