Great Companies- What are the strategies you follow to stay ahead of your competitors?
Sumegh P. Shinde: The world today is witnessing a drastic climate change and buildings are unable to respond to the climate. Our approach towards design and choice of materials is inclined to the climate responsive nature of buildings for a comfortable and memorable experience of the designed space. Which means high usage of locally sourced natural building materials.
Great Companies- What is your success mantra?

Great Companies- What suggestions would you give to future business corporations and budding entrepreneurs?
