Constituting of seven states, the North Eastern region of India is known for its unique and picturesque landscape. However, connected to the mainland only through the narrow Siliguri corridor, the region has been cutoff from the rest of the nation which has had a massive impact on infrastructure development in the area. Lagging behind in terms of road connectivity and other infrastructure wants, the region also suffers, owing to the hilly terrain and precarious weather conditions, which leave a limited timeframe for construction work. While challenges are plenty, OMS Infra Consultants, a full fledged infrastructure faced project delivery consultancy has been leveraging its technical and infrastructural expertise to undertake projects in North eastern states of the country, even in extreme climatic conditions. Focused on aiding infrastructure development PAN India across Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Assam, the project management expert organization has also successfully implemented a plethora of projects across India.

“We have successfully planned a wide range of infrastructure projects across various sectors including highways, bridges, airports and buildings. But the one common thread running through all the 55 projects that OMS Infra has undertaken so far is our commitment to quality and punctuality,” expounds M. Siva Kumar, Managing Director, OMS Infra Consultants. Laying steadfast significance to requisite safety norms and other regulations while executing the projects, the ISO 9001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified company specializes in 360degree project delivery consultancy. Owning expertise in integrated planning, comprehensive design, engineering and project management services for highways, bridges and buildings,and construction supervision of highway projects, the firm is professionally managed, techno advanced and infrastructure focused. Founded in 2014, OMS Infra has developed an association with the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways, IRCON, and others, and has occupied a significant position in the league of infra consultancy organizations.

Empowering the Infrastructure Sector

The infrastructure sector, which includes power, bridges, dams, roads and urban infrastructure development, is often one of the key drivers for any economy. Especially a modern and efficient road network is an essential component of a nation’s infrastructure, and an important prerequisite for sustained economic growth. On its way to becoming a global superpower, infrastructural development is on an upswing across India.

Unfortunately, the sunrise sector which is a critical contributor to India’s development is often marred by time delays and cost overruns. According to survey conducted by the Project Management Institute, globally, organizations wasted an average of $97 million for every $1 billion invested in construction projects. Helping organizations minimize delays and ensuring adherence to budgets, OMS Infra has been a part of this transformative process from its very beginning.

Possessing expertise in rendering consultancy services for highway projects, the company has so far completed projects with a total road length of over 1300 Kms. “Our projects in this sector include feasibility studies, detailed designs and project reports, and project management services for expressways, national/ state highways, and dedicated service corridors,” says Siva. OMS leveraging the extensive know how and invaluable insights gained from designing and implanting a plethora of projects, has completed some of the highways in a single stretch of over and above 150 Kms, which is a feather in its cap. Similarly, the team has successfully designed and implemented lengthy bridges of above 1.5 Kms.

When Hyderabad based Sushee Infra & Mining limited was working on four laning of Balachara to Harangajo section of NH-54(Ext)from Km.275.000 to Km. 244.000 in Assam, the company sought the expertise of OMS Infra. Working on engineering, procurement and construction for the said project, OMS Infra identified several deficiencies and incorporated them in the project; as a consequence of which the project cost enhanced significantly.

Replicating the same success for all its clients, the firm’s roster of infrastructure

Additionally, the team also aces bridges & protection works, study of alternatives & value engineering, detailed costing & quantity estimation, and economic & financial analysis.
