Project Delivery Partner (PDP)
The MRT, Mass Rapid Transit is the nation’s largest public infrastructure project to-date. Known to be the backbone for a new sustainable public transport system to address the increasingly crippling traffic congestion problem in the Klang Valley, the MRT will integrate with existing rail networks such as the Light Rail Transit’s (LRT) Putra and Star Lines and KTM Komuter with interchange stations and a unified ticketing system for a seamless travelling experience.
With a proven track record in large-scale project management and extensive know-how in the construction of various civil infrastructure and tunnelling projects, MMC-Gamuda - a 50:50 joint venture company between Gamuda and MMC Corporation – was appointed by the Government of Malaysia as the Project Delivery Partner (PDP) for the mega MRT project in January 2011.
As PDP, our primary function is to ensure the successful completion of the MRT within the pre-determined target cost and date. With PDP, the Government is ensured of a smooth implementation of the massive project.
The following summarises the PDP’s role within the massive MRT project:
- Oversee the overall performance of Design Consultants and Work Package Contractors
- Manage the procurement process for all construction work packages jointly with the Government of Malaysia
- In the event a contractor or sub-contractor does not meet pre-determined work package requirements, the PDP will step in at no risk to project delivery cost and time
- To undertake all preparations, submissions and obtaining all approvals for the execution of the project
