Project Description

The project was awarded by Malir Development Project of City District Government Karachi, (MDP) for town / master planning and development of infrastructure for Taiser Town (Scheme 45). To achieve the objective following tasks were undertaken; Topographic survey of the entire project area depicting all existing natural and man-made feature on the ground, a land use survey, a socioeconomic survey of the existing settlements and environmental study. This information formed the basis for the preparation of a Master Plan/Concept/Land use Plan.

The detailed planning exercise included zoning, concept plan, and consolidation of private land, detailed working drawings of residential, commercial and amenity sectors. Infrastructure Planning, design, and Construction Supervision covered roads, water supply, sewerage, drainage network and design of treatment plants with cost estimates and preparation of PC-I tender documents and Construction Supervision. ECIL adopted an integrated approach of projecting infrastructure layers on GIS platform. High Resolution Imagery was utilized for developing baseline datasets for delineating Land Use Patterns and other infrastructure layers. GIS based Spatial Data Modelling was performed to project Topographic contours to establish terrain based water supply, drainage and other facilities design and implementation. A comprehensive GIS based Suit was developed utilizing technology based Town Planning approach.
