The Design Vetting Committee of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has officially granted approval for the building plan of the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP). This landmark decision signifies a new chapter for the CCP, paving the way for the construction of a cutting-edge facility that will empower the commission to expand its operations efficiently within its existing budget, especially in the face of escalating costs in rent, utilities, and staff hiring, driven by inflation, according to an official statement from the CCP.
Building Plan for Competition Commission of Pakistan
Back in 2018, the CDA allocated plots spanning 5.5 kanals in Sector G-10/4, Mauve Area to the Competition Commission of Pakistan. However, the project encountered various roadblocks, resulting in a two-year delay. Despite these challenges, the newly approved building plan showcases a forward-looking design, incorporating state-of-the-art office spaces.
The proposed facility is set to include a dedicated hearing room, an information resource center, and a crèche facility tailored for female employees, embodying the CCP’s commitment to fostering a modern and inclusive workspace. The inclusion of these features aligns with the commission’s vision to create an environment that supports its workforce while advancing its mission to ensure fair competition and protect consumers’ interests.
The approval of the building plan comes as a significant milestone for the CCP, enabling the commission to overcome previous hurdles and move forward with its expansion plans. The new facility will not only provide a strategic and efficient base for the CCP’s operations but also serve as a testament to the organization’s dedication to staying at the forefront of modern office design and functionality.
As the Competition Commission of Pakistan prepares to embark on this transformative journey, the approved building plan represents a symbol of progress and innovation, reflecting the commission’s commitment to excellence in its endeavors. The upcoming construction is anticipated to contribute significantly to the CCP’s ability to carry out its crucial role in promoting fair competition and safeguarding consumer rights across various cities.
