Bids received for the site were evaluated under a modified concept and price revenue tender system. 

Through this system, the interested tenderers will submit their concept proposals and tender prices separately. They are also given the option to submit and alternative bid on top of the one they made for base prefabrication, pre-finished volumetric construction (PPVC)
