Please tell us a bit about yourself.

I am Shitiz Garg passed out in 2005 as an Architect from IP University Delhi, I started my career in interiors only and learned details of using different materials, their joineries. I work very closely with labourers at sites. I am incredibly open to working with smart materials which are cost-effective and aesthetically look attractive. The driving force to be an entrepreneur is cost-effective smart solutions to create beautiful homes for any budget. Especially to provide “MEANING TO EVERY INCH”.

What were the challenges that you faced initially and how did you overcome them?

a. Timelines to work at sites – Solution – We build 80% of units in the factory, not to have any restrictions for the work.

In which Bungalow, Villas, Apartments, and Independent Floor homes are included.

How do you come up with new ideas?

It would be a tough question but let me try to reply. As a company, we are providing, freedom to choose core material to customers of any brand Like Century, Green Ply, or other local brands with ISO–certified products, we give multiple choices of Exposed Finishes, we provide end to end solutions even the décor items too. Instead of creating Experience Center, we have created an Exhibition Center, Where Customers can come and see our process of creating their Dream Home. Ideas such as DIY, Samples of Plywood and other Materials, Machines on which we work. By mentioning all these points, I would say, we try our level best to understand and listen to client requirements in detail. It helps us to Create Design as a “Function Follow Form” strategy.
