• The green diamond factory building is a direct reflection of the client’s approach to life full of sensitivity, straight-forwardness, and clarity. This climatically sensitive building is very high on the functionality quotient with immaculate space utilisation and well worked out utilities. When you go there, you would be presently surprised with the green cover on the three sides of the building held by an interesting fabrication grid.
We feel it is our individual responsibility to be aware about how we can save energy and in turn contribute in making this planet a better place to live. Thinking and Acting Green makes us feel responsible. Keeping the green building perspective into account, we can easily optimize our energy costs and increase the comforts of the occupants. With this inclination in mind, I engaged Snehal to design our new factory. In all, the experience of working with Snehal has been good. He has always given enough time to understand our needs and has fulfilled them. We found him always eager to implement new ideas. With this zeal and commitment towards his work, ESSTEAM is bound to reach new heights of success on the foundation of the principles ESSTEAM has been pursuing!
