The Joint Construction Committee (JCC)

On April 7th, 2003 the two companies set up a joint construction committee (JCC) for the emergency gallery. This committee, composed of members of SFTRF and SITAF, is solely responsible for coordinating the construction project on behalf of the two concession holding companies, for all the studies and work relating to the emergency gallery and its appendices and access. Specifically, it is responsible for deciding to open markets to competition and the conditions of these tenders for design offices and/or companies, for approving the consultation documents and requests for tenders, for selecting the candidates and the companies or consortiums to whom the contract is awarded for studies or work, to coordinate firstly all the studies, and later all the construction work on the structures, to monitor progress of work and all the installations and facilities.
